The Clubhouse reopens tomorrow (hurrah!). A sheet will be placed on the locker room notice board for the Coronation Foursomes.

It would be helpful if those who have arranged to play could add their names to this sheet along with their approximate preferred start time (Note: Players will have to book their own tee time via General Play from this Thursday 29 April).

This will also assist players who are still looking for a partner and those who need another pair to play with.

Entry money of £2 each (£4 per couple) should be placed in the box in the locker room.

 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!

Wednesday McMillan Cancer Stableford - 21 April 2021

To be included in the morning ballot email by 11pm on Monday 12th April. The draw will be done on Tuesday 13th April. Remember to say whether you want play RED or GREEN tees.

To enter other than in the morning ballot, enter and book your own time on the App from 7am on Wednesday 14th April. Anyone entering themselves will be set to Green tees by default. Email the ladies address above if you want this changed to Red tees.

Saturday McMillan Cancer Stableford - 24 April 2021

Any lady who has not entered for the Wednesday competition can enter for the Saturday by emailing Eleanor Cannon at on or before Thursday 15th April. 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.

Entry fee for the McMillan stablefords is £3, which will be collected via the App and all donated to McMillan Cancer Relief charity

Yellow Ball Tri-Am - Wednesday 28 April 2021

Enter on the App at any time between now and Sunday 18th April. The draw will be done by Vivien Howe on Monday 19th April and groups booked in to their times centrally on Wednesday 21 April. Scoring will be by card, the App is only being used to collect entries.

Entry fee of £2 per person will be collected once the locker room reopens. GREEN course.


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.

Wednesday, April 07, 2021


Sadly we need to postpone today's medal until next Wednesday 14th due to temporary greens today.  Later today Jan will rebook everybody for the same tee time next week.  If you can't make it then please withdraw from the competition and let your playing partners know.  You can also change your tee time if you prefer.

Advance information about the Coronation Foursomes now scheduled to be played on Wednesday 5 May 2021.

This competition is open to ladies with a Handicap Index of 40 or less.
Stableford Foursomes competition with Handicap Allowance HALF COMBINED COURSE HANDICAPS. RED Course.
The entry fee is £2 each (£4 per couple). This will be collected in cash when the clubhouse and locker room reopen.

There will be no online entry or scoring - choose your own partner, find another couple to make up your four and then book your own time via General Play booking when this opens nearer the time. Scoring will be by card (sending photos once play finishes).

In the meantime, if anyone is looking for a partner or a pair is looking for another to mark their card, please email the ladies account and I will try to assist with match-ups.



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 Draws for the knockout Competitions have been done, but due to having no access to the Clubhouse at the moment it is not possible to put these up on the notice board.  In the short term these are available here on the blog and will be transfered to the Club once it is open.

Please can you forward your match results to Joy who will update the draw for you on the blog for as long as is necessary.

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

Strokes given are the difference between the two Course Handicaps.
