Winter League

Just enough ladies to make a valid draw decided to play this morning. As it was a Stanley Clark date, it was played on Lansdowne to winter greens. Putting was a lottery but on the whole the the exercise and the fresh air were enjoyed!
The winners were - Heather Dawson - 50 and Louise Whitehead - 52

A few enthusists - 16/12/11

Only five brave souls turned up for the winter league on a bright, frosty, cold day. After some discussion, they decided to play 'a few holes' over Rosemount which was the course of the day.
There will be committee members on duty on the 23rd and the 30th should any members wish get some Festive Season exercise to help keep any excesses at bay!
£254:00 was collected for Macmillan last week - thanks to all.

Ladies' Christmas Lunch 2011

The Christmas Lunch  followed a night of high winds, storms and power cuts which  threatened to disrupt proceedings. Although there was considerable damage to both courses,  our power to the clubhouse was, thankfully, still operating, and the Lady Captain welcomed 56  members, some of who had made  considerable efforts to get to the Lunch following  disruption on the roads due to fallen trees.

Everyone enjoyed  a very convivial afternoon with  teasing Christmas quizzes, an  excellent lunch and a surprise  turn by a  mystery  fairy artiste who bore a  remarkable resemblance to Captain Jean Laburn.   Proceedings were rounded off by the Committee's  spirited rendition of  a golfing version of Jingle Bells, with  all ladies joining in.

The  Perth and Kinross branch of Macmillan Cancer Support  will receive a donation from the ladies who were invited to contribute to the charity in lieu of exchanging  presents.  

Dates for the Diary
Ladies Afternoon Bridge:  There will be no bridge on Tuesday 27th December.  Back to normal on January 3rd.
Charles Dernie's Pre-Season Lessons:  Are you looking forward to golf in 2012? The sign-up  sheets  have gone up for Charles's  very popular  series of  pre-season lessons which begin on 20th February. There are several dates each week.

WINTER LEAGUE 25 November 2011

You often hear golfers trotting out that old saying "Why do we play this game??" Why indeed, who in their right mind wants to play in sleet, driving rain and freezing wind? Answer - 9 brave souls who battled round Lansdowne this morning in desperate conditions. In truth the ladies did dither before deciding to chance it and at the end of the morning the last few holes were played in brilliant sunshine. was just the bit in the middle of the round that left everybody wondering why they had spurned the offer of coffee and a cosy chat in the lounge in favour of playing Winter League.

Everybody who played deserved to win, but best scores were

Silver : Sandy Bushby 55 (bih) and Heather Dawson (55)

Bronze : Birte Buckett (59) and Katy Chapman (62)

P.S. Just a reminder
that tickets for the Christmas Lunch are available from the dining-room staff, priced £16.00. When you buy a ticket you will be asked to make your choice of starter and main course, and this will be written on the back of your ticket. The menu is on the Blog and also posted in the Locker Room.

Ladies Winter Golf

Because of the inclement weather last season, and the lack of winter golf, the previously agreed changes that should have been made to the Winter League and the Stanley Clark Trophies could not be implemented. These changes will now be made.

The Winter League will begin at the end of October and finish towards the end of March – exact dates will be as per the Fixture List and notice board.

The Stanley Clark Trophy will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month unless otherwise stated ( e.g. moved to accommodate the Christmas Lunch) and will be on the Lansdowne Course whenever possible. However there may be occasions when it will be played on Rosemount. N.B. Lansdowne only members will be able to play on Rosemount. The course of the day will be played – to full greens or to winter greens as decided by the Golf Club/Green Keeping Management.

These changes have been made for the benefit of the courses and in the long run us, the members.

Full details of the Winter League and Stanley Clark Trophies are in the Competition Rule Book.

A Thank You From Heather Anderson

Thank you to all the ladies who gave me a real surprise on Friday with the lovely birthday cake and card.  It was much appreciated. I don't know how they managed to keep it quiet......and I'm sure they arranged it that I went out last in the winter league so there could be some plotting done !!!! When I get back I will also be handing out penalties to the "Monday crowd", who also managed to be devious and secretive.!!!!!!!.."....".....but it was worth it !!!

                                       Thank you all again,
                                              Heather xxx

Captain Jean Laburn and Vice-Captain Vike Brown were on hand to welcome ladies to the first "official" winter league of the season. The Lady Captain explained the new arrangements whereby the Club will advise us on the day which course will be used for the league. Weather conditions will obviously play a big part in deciding the course and which greens will be in play. The Captain has posted an information sheet about the changes in the locker room.
The first meeting played on Rosemount also  marked the start of using mats on the fairway, with most ladies adapting quickly to the change.
The Winners were
Silver : Mary Hope (49) and Jan Kennedy (51)
Bronze : Morna Steven (50) and Margaret Sturrock (52)

If you wish to play in the Four Ball Better Ball on Friday 30th September, then you must sign up via the computer or ring reception.

Also, the committee has secured tee times in the morning on Rosemount on Friday the 14th October. Normally golf is not played on the day of the Annual Meeting and Prize Giving, but as it will be held at 6:00pm it was felt that ladies would like to play in the morning. A fun competition will be organised that day.
