Scores should be written on scorecards. There will be scorecards available in the hut that morning. Please send a photo of the scorecard to Vivien 07866275025.

Birdie Tree/Par Tee/Ranfurly Ringer 2021

 Starting 1st May!

Since the clubhouse will not be open until 26th April, this years Birdie Tree/Par Tee and Ranfurly Ringer will be available to complete from Saturday 1st May.
The boards for the Birdie Tree, Par Tee and Ranfurly Ringer will be available in the ladies locker room.

The Red Cross Ringer has been renamed The Ranfurly Ringer, as the the Red Cross no longer run this as a nationwide competition. Proceeds will be sent to a different nominated charity each year.
An 18 hole competition score must be used to initially enter yourself into the Ranfurly Ringer. Thereafter you can "ring" better scores at a hole any time you play a minimum of 9 holes.

The Birdie Tree/Par Tee can be used to record your pars and birdies anytime you play a competition. Please note only gross pars and birdies can be recorded.

At the end of the season there will be a prize for the winners of the Birdie Tree, Par Tee and Ranfurly Ringer.

Fingers crossed for lots of good scores this golfing season!

When you email you can ask to be included in a draw for playing partners or alternatively specify who you have arranged to play with. Note that because of the interaction with the draw for the gents Saturday competition, emailing Eleanor is the best way to ensure you can get a time to play in the competition.

Please specify whether you will play Red or Green tees when emailing.

SUNDAY FRIENDLY MATCHES

The two Sunday Friendly Matches (targeted mainly at higher handicappers and weekend players) which were arranged for early this season have had to be rescheduled due to the current travel restrictions and uncertainty over clubhouse openings.

The away match at Gourock will now be on Sunday 4th July 2021 and the home game against Elderslie will be rearranged in the autumn if circumstances allow.

Note that the original dates, although now cancelled, still appear on the Club's website as strangely there seems to be some problem with updating this.

SATURDAY APRIL MEDAL 2021

A glorious start to the 2021 competition season with both fabulous weather and fabulous scoring by many ladies.  Played 3 April 2021, 12 entrants.

Silver winner: Lesley Robertson 74 (4) 70
Bronze winner: Senga Nixon 102 (38) 64

Honorable mentions also for Pauline MacEwan with a net 68 and Geraldine Hughes net 70.

The new WHS handicapping will hopefully lead to many more ladies submitting lots of scores both in competition and General Play, with the hope of a Handicap Index cut minus the fear of an automatic 0.1 increase in the event of a bad day.

The Silver knockout is played over the Red course and the Bronze is played over the Green course.
