Please note that the dates of the McLachlan Cup and Spring Meeting for Captains Prizes have been swapped around.
Spring Meeting now Wednesday 22nd June (Stableford competition)
McLachlan Cup now Wednesday 29th June. (Foursomes Stableford, one silver and one bronze player in a team)
Apologies for the late notice and inconvenience on this change. This is due to a change of date for a commitment outside the club for your Lady Captain.
The change has been made on the app and entry for both is via SG app.
Unfortunately this fixture was abandoned as we were not able to raise a team.
Kilmacolm are still keen to play so we will look at a date in September tba.
Please please make your self available for this fixture in September if you possibly can. These matches are great fun and help us develop good relations with our neighbouring courses.
Away to Ralston on 19th May was our first fixture in this years West Renfrewshire League.
Always a difficult match, this year proved no different as we lost 5/1 to a strong Ralston team.
Ralston made our team very welcome and all who played enjoyed the game.
Big thanks to all who played and represented Ranfurly Castle so well.
Good luck to the girls playing in the next match against Caldwell at home on Tuesday 31st May.

I am very sorry to inform you that past member Linda MacDougall passed away suddenly yesterday.
Many of us will remember Linda with great fondness. She had a bubbly personality and a smile for everyone. We have missed her since she and Donald decided to move to Gullane a few years ago to be nearer to children and grandchildren.
Thoughts are with her husband Donald, her children, grandchildren and the rest of her family and friends at this very sad and difficult time.
Funeral details will be posted when known.
