9 hardy souls braved the bitter cold day on Sunday and completed 12 holes in various forms of Xmas-themed attire! We played 'Plant the Flag' , although that turned out to be quite difficult in the brick-hard conditions, and Donna rose to the occasion and was a worthy winner by completing the round and still having 3 shots of her handicap left. Fortunately or unfortunately that also meant she got her handicap cut by 3 ! Hard luck Dot, always the bridesmaid.....
I think we were all glad to get into the clubhouse (some of us taking a bit longer than others!) and enjoyed a lovely meal from Paul & Mike...and a few drinks !

Our Scratch and Handicap Club Championships were both played on Sunday with Agnes Manattini winning the Scratch on the 18th against Lesley Findlay and Pam Ewen winning the Handicap on the 19th against Fiona Farquharson. Both games were nip & tuck. Well done to all who took part including the spectators! A lively post-match meal and drinks celebration was enjoyed in the clubhouse afterwards.

This was our final HL match of season. Unfortunately the ladies from Crieff beat us 3-2 on our home patch. Thanks to Moira L, Pat and our debutantes Fiona & Donna for turning out along with myself. It was heavy going and a bit wet from the morning downpours and we just about made it in before daylight disappeared!

Our handicap league team earned a creditable draw at Dunkeld today considering that we were all giving shots to the Dunkeld ladies. Well done to Alison & Moira C. for winning their games and Moira L. for halving her game. Maybe better luck next time for Dot & Michelle. At least we came away with more points than we expected.

Our outing this year took us to the Burntisland Ladies Greensome. Before we teed off we just about cleared the tombola table of prizes - Linda & Iris even managed to win matching golf caps. Only Liz, Dot & Agnes were unlucky (or some might say 'lucky'!) not to win a prize. Iris did try to offload her blue 'fork handles' but they were having none of it.
Eventually we did make it to the 1st tee. Everyone enjoyed the course with some great views across the Forth. Some of us probably remember it more than others - thanks to Liz & Annette on the drinks cart. The non-KJVI ladies some of us were playing with joined in with the frivolities too.
Alison and Moira L. ensured KJVI appeared in the main prizewinners list - Alison had the longest bronze drive and Moira was nearest the pin.
In our own comp, Moira L. and Michelle won the best nett prize, with Agnes and Pat runners up. Karen and Moira C. won the prize for nearest the pin in 2 on 18th (some ladies from other clubs thought they could compete for this too!). Pam & Sheena won the prize for Endeavour and Iris & Pat came up trumps in the Sweepy.
We finished off with a lovely meal in the clubhouse before jumping back on the bus and heading home.
Thanks to Linda for organising the day, Iris for arranging the prizes, Agnes for her macaroons & custard creams and our official photographers Liz & Annette.
Roll on next year.......

Thanks to the team of Dot, Karen, Michelle, Pam and Pat who managed a convincing 4-1 win over Auchterarder tonight. The course was playing well even after yesterday's torrential rain! Special mention for Pat who made her Handicap League debut and narrowly lost on 18th.
