GOLFERS FROM all over Scotland travelled to Auchterarder Golf Club yesterday to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.Some 50 teams of four people played the course in the event, which it is hoped will have raised £5000.There was a silent auction and tombola and holes and tees were sponsored by local companies.April Davidson, fund- raising manager for Fife and Forth Valley, said, “It’s really great to see Auchterarder Golf Club do what they enjoy while raising money for Macmillan.”

Unfortunately the Blairgowrie Belles did not have a winning score, but they had a great day with some birdies including an eagle on the par 5 seventeenth which earned them 5 stableford points!

Tuesday Turn Up and Play

Despite the weather being slightly damp and overcast, eleven ladies turned up to play yesterday. Laura MacKay, the competition convenor for the day, organised a hidden hole event-but for putts only. This went down very well and allowed the participants to really concentrate on their putting. Even though one lady had a 10 on a hole, she only had one putt!!!The hidden holes were 1,5,16,17, and a tie breaker on the18th. The winner was Kay Thomson with just 6 putts. Well done Kay.

Scatch League

Well done to the Scratch League team on their win against Dunkeld. The score was 3 matches to 2. Also thanks to Scratch League Captain Susan Arbuckle for the delicious strawberries and raspberries which we had with our supper afterwards.
