Sunday 19th January saw 7 ladies putting in a tough shift of gardening work outside the Clubhouse.
Well done girls, what a difference a bit of weeding and tidying up makes!
I'm sure all the members would like to thank you for your hard work.
Volunteers to help out the gardening team always welcome!
Saturday 18th January saw the Ladies section host the 90th AGM. Approximately 45 ladies gathered in the dining room where Captain Jan welcomed everyone. Various reports were given covering events of the past year before Jan introduced Gillian Donaghy as her Vice Captain and welcomed her to the post. 2019 was a difficult year for Jan with no Vice Captain but, with the help of many of the members, she survived and is generously giving her time to continue as Captain for anoher year. She thanked both Sheila Biggart and Marion Munro for their services as they departed from the committee and welcomed Anne Gordon and Helen Abram as new members to replace them.
A congratulations Birthday card was sent to Ronnie MacLaren who has reached the grand age of 100, our oldest Past Captain.
The meeting continued with Jan presenting the prizes and Trophies to the winners from the last seasons golf.
Finally two dates for next month were given for people to put in their diary:-
Wed 19th February - Afternoon Tea event and Wed 26th February - Bridge Afternoon.
Look out for sheets in the locker room to sign up if you are interested and further information will follow shortly.
Thanks to everyone who came along on Sunday 12th January to witness the new Captains' Drive-In.
2019 Captain David Stewart handed over the badge of office to Eunice Muir, who then introduced the 2020 Gents Vice Captain, Brian McLaughlin.
Eunice, Brian and Lady Captain Jan later hit their tee shots off the first tee in front of a cheering audience (all balls in play, but Jan's disappointingly in the bunker!).
We were then very lucky with a dry and pleasant weather window for the 9 hole stableford competition. This year's winner of the Captains Quaich was Joy McLeod with 24pts, narrowly beating Kevin Barr and last year's winner Martin McGoldrick.
Well done Joy, a good start to the season for the Ladies!
