The course was open for Winter League this morning with the warning:   "Frost still in ground, wet on top".  No one  fancied going out in the rain, except one  enthusiastic lady  who decided to chance 9 holes on the Wee Course....she explained she had received an umbrella-holder for her trolley as a Christmas present  and wanted to try it out.....
The rest of us settled for coffee and a chat.  Hopefully conditions will  improve next week.

Rosemount was open today with the following warning. CONDITIONS VERY DANGEROUS DUE TO ICE AND WATER.  If anyone is unsure what that statement means  --  this was the winter green on the 14th at midday. Every winter green was like this and conditions underfoot were treacherous.  Seven holes were enough  for the Vice-Captain.


Muriel McPherson has lost a COBRA pitching wedge, last used  playing Winter League on 30th November.  If anyone found the club and stuck it in their golf bag, meaning to hand it in later, can they please let Muriel know.

The weather is not looking very hopeful for Winter League on Friday 14th ....but some ladies will be there for coffee and a chat if golf is impossible.

Christmas Lunch 2012

Despite last night's heavy snowfall, fifty six ladies managed to attend the 2012 Christmas Lunch. It was a perfect setting with snow covered fairways. The event had been carefully planned by the ladies' committee and everyone enjoyed a lovely meal, two Christmas quizzes and some very very fine singing. It was a marvellous opportunity for ladies to meet new members as well as catch up with old friends.  The ladies attending generously donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Golf in the spring next year may seem far off, but the  2013 sign-up sheets have gone up for Charles Dernie's popular  coaching lessons which begin on March 6th.  The courses last for 6 weeks with afternoon and morning dates available on various days.  The cost is £28 for  the  entire course.  If you have not attended one of these courses before, it's an ideal way to prepare for the new season's golf. Topics covered include driving, iron play, chipping, bunker play and putting.
