FRIDAY LUNCH-TIME TEE TIMES


Good morning ladies. I have reviewed, in consultation with the Office staff the Friday lunch-time Tee slots, following our first Medal of the season.  The aim is to avoid any lady member playing at this  time, being unduly held up on the course during the Competitions.  Following our discussions, the Tee Times listed below have been agreed.

Buffer - 12.03 - 12.21

Tee Slots - 12.30 - 13.15

Buffer 13.24

The morning and evening slots will remain the same.

It should be acknowledged that this is a time consuming exercise, as all the ladies competitions and buffers for each day require to be changed for the whole season.

I would state that due to entries having been entered already for the 19th April the tee times will remain as per last week, but players should note there is a buffer from 11.45 am in place, in the short term.

The above times will be effective from 26th April. I would also emphasise that once the change is made, we will not be able to change it again, as there are already other fixtures in place.

I welcome your understanding of the situation and hope this change benefits all.

FRIENDLY WITH FORFAR

The ladies team today

Monday 15th April, saw the commencement of our Friendly Season with a home match against Forfar Ladies. The teams faced a brisk wind which increased as the afternoon progressed and the captain for the day, Linda Rice reports that all were frozen by the time they came in.  The ladies were announced on to the 1st tee by our starter Bob, a new venture for this season.

Following the match both teams enjoyed a 2 course meal in the dining-room with Linda Rice giving the vote of thanks on behalf of Blairgowrie.  Unfortunately the result was not in our favour, with Forfar winning 3-1, although the teams enjoyed the games.

Our next match is on Monday the 22nd April at home against Elie. Please meet at 12.30 in the East Lounge.

THE COLUMBINE CUP


The Winning Team 7-3

Colin Blues presenting Fiona Johnston Lady Captain with the Columbine Cup.

The sun shone today, not only on the course, but in the hearts of the Ladies Team, who recorded their first win since 2015.  My game with Colin, Sheila Bruce and Ian Dunbar was a close affair up to the 17th hole, resulting in a win for Colin and Ian, 2-1. Throughout the match Colin proved why he plays off 6, sinking a number of birdies, the longest being on the 14th green. 

However, as the results began to flow in, it became clear that the ladies had enjoyed their day in the sun, defeating the Senior Gents 7-3. Well done team and thank you for making this a great day for our section.

Following the match both teams enjoyed refreshments in the East Lounge, before sitting down to a lovely two course meal in the dining-room,

MARGARET McCRAE

It is with great sadness, I inform you that Margaret McCrae, a member of Pitlochry Golf Club and Perth and Kinross County for many years, passed away late last week. Margaret played in many of the friendly matches against Blairgowrie, alongside playing in the Scratch and Handicap leagues for many years.  She was a great character, had a wonderful sense of humour and will be sadly missed. For any members wishing to attend the funeral, the church service is at 12.30 on Tuesday 9th April, at Pitlochry, Church of Scotland
