Tonight the Semi-Finals are due to take place at 6.00pm with all the Finals, Ladies, Gents and Juniors taking place on Sunday 23rd June. It would be a great lift to all the players for the ladies to come out to support their fellow players in these events.
I look forward to seeing as many ladies as possible.
Despite the reduced number of players due to a variety of reasons, we all enjoyed fine weather and some fine golf. We had an excellent meal afterwards in the dining room and in Fiona's absence, Margaret Kerr thanked everyone participating and the catering staff.
1st Gill Tissell, Eileen McMurray, and Margaret Kerr

The forecast for Thursday 13th June was awful, but as the day dawned clear and dry, hopes were raised that the forecasters had got it wrong. Unfortunately disappointment was in store as the rain began to fall, just as our team of Katie Chapman (c), Carolyn Haddow, Jen Geddes, Di Barbour, Margaret McGlashan, Meriel Walker, Miriam Rooney and Moira Stewart arrived at Alyth Golf Club.
We all played, however, and although the rain was persistent and sometimes heavy, there was no wind and it was mild. Alyth won the match by 3 games to 1 and everyone agredd it had been a very enjoyable day.
My thanks goes to Julie Wink for convening the match and Katie Chapman for compiling the above report.
On Tuesday 11th June 2019 we welcomed a team from Ladybank Golf Club. The weather was dry and sometimes a little blustery, but the wind did not hinder our enjoyment of the game.
A friendly draw was the result and was followed by an excellent meal with Lemon Posset a very popular choice of desert. The Caterers were well praised by the Ladybank Captain for the match. This was her first visit to play the Rosemount course and was pleased to record a win with her partner.
My sincere thanks go to our Blairgowrie team of Mary Miller, Eileen McMurray, Margaret McGlashan, Miriam Rooney, Julie Wink, Caroline Dracup and Di Barbour.
My thanks to Muriel McPherson for convening the match and compiling the above report.
