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.
Seasons' Greetings from the Ladies' Committee

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.
