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.

26 ladies enjoyed the Spring Meeting today, Wednesday 26 May 2021. A lovely day with a few spots of rain for the later starters, but generally much nicer than some of the recent wild weather.
Many thanks to Captain Gillian for the gifts and lunchtime drink, much appreciated. The course was in great condition and several ladies certainly took advantage of this with some excellent scores.
Silver winner: Louise Cooper (19) 43 pts
Runner-up: Marion Munro (14) 39 pts

It was a beautiful sunny evening with no wind and the team took advantage of the conditions with a decisive win, 5 matches to 1. Well done to everyone and lets hope for more of the same against Ralston in the next outing.

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.
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

4) Handicap allowance per pair is HALF COMBINED COURSE HANDICAPS. Find your Course Handicap using the Notice on the old Pro Shop wall (Red Course column)
5) Entry fee - £2 each (£4 per couple) Please put these in an envelope, clearly marked, and into the box in the Ladies Locker Room
