The Commencement of our New Summer Season is now just a month away.  I would like to alert you to events that will be displayed in the Locker room and Wee course noticeboard.

Wee Course Coffee Morning is on Wednesday 20th March, when the Committee will meet the ladies for a chat and fixture updates.  There are a number of new members who have joined the Wee Course and we look forward to welcoming them to the club. Shirley Irvine will be co-ordinating the day.

Our Get Together is on Friday 22nd March, at 6.00pm, You will be welcomed with a glass of wine, mocktail or soft drink, followed by a one course meal, with coffee and cake at 6.30pm  A Sign up sheet will be in the Locker room and on the Wee course noticeboard with a tick box for the meal by 4th March. This is to give us an idea of numbers for attendance to assist with Dinning room layout.  Bookings for the  meal will be taken by the bar staff as from Tuesday 5th March. Karyn Dallas will deliver her session on Course Management, Focus and Game Preparation after the meal. 

Captain v. Vice Captain, for the Friendship Bowl is on Friday 29th March with the Shotgun start at 1.00pm. Ladies are asked to be at the club house by 12.00pm for the raising of the Club Flag and a group photograph, before witnessing the two Captains teeing off.  The Wee Course ladies are playing at 10.00am and are asked to join us for the Group Photograph.  They will be having a light lunch to celebrate.  There will be a 1 course meal followed by coffee and mints in the Dinning room, during which the Friendship Bowl will be presented. A Signing up sheet will be displayed in the locker room for entries and the booking of meal is via the bar staff from 8th March.

Opens and Invitation Days are now on line for you to sign up with your guests. Please note that entries for the Invitations have increased to 20.00 per couple. When you select your tee time that is the time you will play on the day. Catering along with any Specials will be available on the day.

Friendly Matches.  The first group of 5 matches will be displayed in the locker room as from 1st March with the named Convenor covering the Match. I am sure as in previous years you will enjoy representing your club and meeting  new faces from other clubs.

On behalf of the Ladies Committee and myself I wish you all the best for the coming season and most importantly enjoy your golf.

Right Ladies, where shall we go?
On a dismal, dull day it was really nice to sit in the warmth of the Clubhouse and hear about holiday ideas in exciting places.  Pauline Hill had arranged to have Kerry Anne from G Adventures  give a talk on holidays with a difference. We all agreed a holiday with golf, a wine tasting, plus time to relax  would be our ideal....and Kerry Anne had some plenty suggestions that suited our request!

Next Week  : Kiehls Cosmetics will be with us to give a talk on skin care, plus hand and arm massage. We may be looking for a volunteer! The ladies coming to give the talk will welcome any questions you may have about your own skin

Come along and meet Kerry Anne who will be giving us an interesting insight into travel and wellness! 
Kerry Anne is travelling up from Glasgow to see us so we would encourage as many ladies  as possible to come along and support us  on Monday 18th February  - 10am for 10.30am.  It's sure to be an interesting and fascinating talk. Bring a friend, too, if you like!

We had a very interesting demo this morning from Jennifer Sneddon who showed us how she makes hand poured ceramics. Jen is a born raconteur and regaled everyone with  tales of how she  got started, disasters along the way, but finishing with  a display of fine examples of her work.

She very kindly brought along some sample pieces which some of us had a go at decorating. Jen will be exhibiting at the Association of Blairgowrie Craftworkers Spring Fare at the Town Hall on  Saturday 27th April.

Some examples of Jennifer's work
Come on ladies, have a go!

Thanks again to Jo Stewart and Pauline Hill for organising the demonstration. Next week we have a talk on holiday ideas - some of which  you might never have considered! Details to follow...

WINTER LEAGUE 08/02/2019

The scene from the lounge this morning
There were NO takers for golf this morning due to heavy overnight rain, strong winds and flooding on the course. Play was not advised, so we settled for coffees and chat. A wise decision!

Thursday, 7 February 2019


The Get-together on Monday 11th February will be a talk by Jennifer Sneddon on  how she got started making ceramics. She will then give a demonstration on how she makes the ceramics and the different stages.  Jennifer explained it's too much much to expect ladies to paint anything as it would take too long.  The cheaper paints need a few coats to cover the bisque.  And, of course, she can't cart her oven  from her garage, where she fires the ceramics, to the Club!

She will, however  bring a box of odds and ends which anyone  can take away and paint at home, if they feel like having a go. 

Sounds like fun!  10.00am for 10.30am.
