The Blairgowrie Ladies Say Goodbye to Roberta

Roberta pictured with Vice Captain Jean Laburn and Ladies' Captain Sandy Bushby

Today was Roberta's last day working at Blairgowrie Golf Club. The Ladies wanted to say good bye to her and presented her with a cake and a card. It was sad to say good bye to her as she has been part of the club for 20 years. We will all miss her welcoming face behind the bar as well as her sartorial elegance. We wish her all the best in her retirement.

Noreen Fordyce Wins the Turkey Trot

The Turkey Trot was finally played today, despite the weather not being 100% dry, but it was much better than last week!The winner with 34 points was Noreen Fordyce, second with a better inward half was Louise Whitehead with 29 points and third was last years winner Liz Fertacz also with 29 points. Well done to the winners and well done to all who played.

First Bridge Session Autumn 2010

Pictured above are some of the ladies enjoying afternoon tea and a chat after attending the first bridge session of the autumn season. Twenty four ladies took part today which was a very good turn out. It was a great chance to catch up with old friends we don't normally see during the golf season. Thanks go to Joy Niven and Noreen Fordyce who organised everything and ably helped people with their bidding and card play. They were joined by Margaret Hunter who very kindly helped with some guidance as well.

Turkey Trot Postponed to Friday 29th October

Due to the very wet weather, the Turkey Trot Competition was not played today. It has been postponed until next Friday, October 29th. If you want to play, there is a sign up sheet in the ladies' locker room. The first round of the Winter League will therefore be on Friday the 5th of November. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Daily Mail Foursome Finalist Gwen Lambie

Blairgowrie member Gwen Lambie and her mother Carol qualified for the finals of the Daily Mail Foursomes at the St Pierre Golf Club in Wales. This was no mean feat as 190,000 players enter this competition at the beginning of the year. They unfortunately lost in the semi finals but went down fighting taking the match to the 18th green. Well done Gwen and Carol.
