AUTUMN MEETING FOR MITCHELL TROPHY

Played Wednesday 8 September 2021.

11 ladies played in weather that was unexpectedly boiling for the time of year!

1st Silver: Marion Munro 89 (12) 77 (bih)

2nd Silver: Jan Macnab 86 (9) 77

1st Bronze: Mary Hardie 101 (25) 76

2nd Bronze: Gillian Donaghy 104 (25) 79 (bih)

TROPHY WINNER: Mary Hardie

The scoring was relatively high for such a calm day, but there was a highlight when Denise Cowan had a HOLE-IN-ONE at the 14th.

Reported as a 7 iron shot that was played through the bunker gap for a kick in towards the pin on the right, both Marion and Denise were not sure the ball was in the hole until they looked closely! Well done Denise 😀

SUCCESS FOR HOME PLAYERS AT COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP

The Renfrewshire Ladies County Championship was played at Ranfurly Castle this week. Thanks to Craig and the greens staff for presenting the course in such a beautiful condition to show off to our visitors.

The Championship title was ultimately won by Jennifer Rankine of Haggs Castle (handicap +1) in a close match on Friday afternoon against Julie Wilson of Williamwood. Earlier, there had been a very good showing from our ladies.

Congratulations to Jan Macnab who won the Peggy Clark Cup for the best net score (73) in Wednesday's (very windy) qualifying round, just pipping Allison Murray with the better inward half.

Then, on Friday morning, Morag Cunningham won the handicap knockout final, beating Vicky Rennie at the 18th, to win the Irvine Trophy (presented 5 years ago by our own Jean Irvine).

Well done also to Denise Cowan who reached the semi-finals of the Championship itself and to Jan and Marion who both won their first match and were knocked out in the quarter-finals.

HOLE IN ONE!

Much excitement today at the 7th hole when Vivien said (very casually) after hitting a nice 7 wood shot onto the green “I think that’s a Hole-In-One”. She had heard it dropping although the rest of us had not even been watching that closely 😲

Sure enough, the ball was in the hole.

Well done Vivien and congratulations on your 1st Hole-In-One !

The runners up were Sheila Biggart, Jean Irvine, Jan Macnab and Evy MacGregor with 47 points.  Thanks to Pamela Mackenzie for organising the day.


Friday, June 18, 2021

COMPETITION ENTRIES

Questions have been raised recently about whether it is permissible to change your competition tee-off time.

As ballots are now drawn and times allocated 9 days in advance, players’ circumstances can change in the following days and it is therefore permissible to change your competition tee-off time however you wish up to and including the day before the competition. (Please as a courtesy advise your playing partners if you are withdrawing or changing your tee time).

The Ladies Committee has also decided that in the unusual circumstance of no-one being available to mark a player’s card for a competition, then the player can change their original tee time on the day of the competition to allow another player to mark their card.

Also note that there is no lower limit to the number of ladies entering a competition for it to go ahead. A competition will only be cancelled if bad weather leads to the course being unplayable or if there are zero entries.

WEST RENFREWSHIRE LEAGUE MATCH

 Our West Ren Team played a match at Ralston GC last night.  It turned out to be a much better evening that at first thought, so no rain and reasonably warm.  That's the good news, sadly, the team was well beaten losing 5 1/2 to 1/2 match.   Thank you to all the ladies who played very well over quite a tricky course.

HOLE IN ONE!

Very many congratulations to Rosemary Ogilvie who had a Hole in One today at the 7th!



WELL DONE RANFURLY CASTLE PLAYERS

As previously intimated, Jan and her daughter Alison were playing in the Inter County Foursome finals yesterday at East Kilbride.  They had tough opposition but played extremely well and were the overall runners up with a score of 79.  Very many congratulations to both. The winners were a Lanarkshire pairing with a score of  level par 73.

Congratulations also to Anne Judge and Sheila Biggart who are through to the next round of the Daily Mail Foursomes after a 3&1 win at Ranfurly Castle on Tuesday, against some tough opponents from Gourock.

INTER COUNTY FOURSOME FINALS

The Renfrewshire County Foursomes were played last Thursday at Bonnyton Golf Club.  It was a lovely day and several Ranfurly members were playing.  The day was won by Jan and her daughter Alison with a gross 81, net 69 - very well done.  They are now one of 4 couples who have qualified to play in the Inter County Finals tomorrow, 1st June, at East Kilbride GC.  Very best of luck to them and lets hope they have a good day in this lovely weather.

Spring Meeting STABLEFORD

The Spring Meeting for captain's prizes on Wednesday 26th is a stableford competition.  If you would like to enter the ballot please email ranfurlyladies@yahoo.co.uk by 11pm on Monday 17th.

Saturday, May 08, 2021

TUESDAY 9 HOLE STABLEFORD COMPETITIONS

The first of the monthly Tuesday 9 hole Stablefords will be held on Tuesday 18 May.

To play in one of these, you can enter yourself through the Scottish Golf App 7 days before the competition, from 7am. ie entries for 18 May open this Tuesday 11 May at 7am.

There have been no arrangements made this season for 9 hole bookings, so to play in the 9 hole Stableford you will need to book a time to start at the 1st Tee and then play/walk round to the 4th Tee before starting to record your score for holes 4-12. You can then walk in from the 12th.

You will need to arrange your own group or marker to play with. To book your tee time, firstly enter the competition itself on the App and then use the purple "My Tee Time" button to select the time you want to play. Note that, if some of your group are unable to use the App to enter themselves, you can enter yourself and enter them as well at the same time. Make sure you book your tee time this way - through the competition - not as a usual General Play booking.

For simplicity there will be no entry fee charged for these 9 hole stablefords.

Scoring

On the day, check in with Stuart at the Pro Shop, where you can pick up a card. I do not recommend trying to score using a phone on the way round - fill in your cards as you would have done in the past and when you finish you can either try to enter your score on the iPad in the Pro Shop (Stuart may be able to assist), or failing that, send me a picture of your card and I can enter your score for you.

Any questions or problems entering, phone me and I will try to help
