Thank you to all Ladies who attended the Get Together on Friday 23rd March.  It was a lovely evening, maybe helped by the sun which had come out that day!  

We had an excellent meal cooked by our new caterers Gary & Elaine and everyone said how much they had enjoyed their food.

Vice Captain, Pauline Hill gave us a very interesting background to our Reciprocal Courses; this was followed by our Pro, Charles and Assistant Pro, Neil informing us about the most suitable golf balls for ladies to use and then an insight into various putters and how they perform.

The finale of the evening was a fashion show from the Pro Shop of Ladies' Spring & Summer golf wear.  The clothes were modelled by Jacqui Hovde, Jane Dernie and Pauline Hill, assisted by Bronwen Godley.

On Friday morning although the weather looked as though it was going to rain, it actually turned out to be quite a nice day and the ladies managed to play their Texas Scramble on Lansdowne.

The Winners were  Sue Waddell, Kay Thomson and Jennifer Livingstone with 53 points and the 
Runners Up were Lesley Findlay, Aileen Keen ad Sheila Bruce with 53.3 points.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Friday, our Opening Day, when the LC team will play the VC team for the Friendship Bowl.  Please meet in the small bar lounge at 12 o'clock after collecting your card from the Pro shop.  The format is a Greensome Stableford with a shotgun start at 1pm.

Congratulations to Heather Anderson who has won the Club Championship at Southbroom Golf Club in South Africa.  This is Heather's 5th win at the Kwa Zulu Natal course and so the weather and challenging course obviously suits her game.  Well done Heather!

Today saw the last of the Winter Socials which have been very successful and well supported.  All the ladies who have attended on a regular basis have thoroughly enjoyed their Monday mornings followed by coffee in the lounge.  Hopefully these Winter Socials may continue next year.

All wrapped up and ready to go!
Ladies who recently took part in the walk around the course which was organised by Heather Welsh.

This morning Liz Ridsdale treated us to a very interesting display of flower arranging.  LC, Janice had asked Liz to do an arrangement for her Golden Wedding and this was the beautiful presentation which she produced.  Thank you Liz.
