Handicap League 2017 - Off to a winning start

Thanks to today's King Jimmy Handicap League team - Moira L., Agnes, Alison, Michelle & Pam - who played well on a glorious sunny day to win 4 - 1 over the team from Blairgowrie. A little revenge for our loss at Blairgowrie last year to the same scoreline ! Next game is at home against Dunning on 27 May  - one player still required to  complete team.

Well, we couldn't have had a better day for our Captain v. Vice Captain match.  The sun was splitting the sky - thankfully the total opposite from last year. We toasted the start of the season with a little glass of Prosecco along with a couple of homemade titbits made by Iris and Agnes.  The wonderful weather must have helped the golf as 3 of the 4 games went to the 18th green. Despite Lady Captain Alison and her partner Moira C. losing their game on 18th to the pairing of Vice Captain Michelle and Iris, her team came up trumps overall by giving the Captain's team a 2.5 to 1.5 victory. Well done Captain's Team.


Our pre-season get together on 22 March was well attended by all the usual suspects.  It is traditionally called a 'Cheese & Wine Evening' but there definitely was no cheese and there was almost no wine!  Despite this we enjoyed our stovies provided by Paul & Mike. The Winter League prizes were handed out to the lucky winners with the fun part of the evening coming in the form of a music quiz organised by our cheeky Lady Captain Alison.  No ordinary music quiz - the songs were all No. 1's and we had to match them to our birth dates! Needless to say, most of us were hopeless.  There were even one or two who were born before No.1's were invented which made it very interesting. Another great night - thanks to Alison.

Latest news -Liz's recovery

Update from Lady Captain Alison:

After a rather unspectacular fall while skiing on holiday in France, much valued King Jimmy lady member & committee member Liz Angus has had to undergo surgery in PRI this week resulting in corrective action being taken to repair her badly damaged knee. While Liz's knee is badly damaged her other limbs remain unscathed and she has been able to send us an x-ray pic of her knee as it was after the op. Liz reported she was well looked after in PRI but is now home and will continue her long road to recovery there. Unfortunately Liz will not be golfing for the rest of this season but is keen to keep in touch with everybody as she progresses through her recovery. We send you our love Liz & wish you all the best so you are back with us asap. If David needs a pinny for all his housework, give him Dot's number 😉

Winter Walk 2017

Our Winter Walk took us on a circular route starting at Scone Racecourse, walking along the River Tay and ending up at Stormontfield where Donna's 2 dogs, Fergus and Storm greeted us with some friendly(?) barking. It was a lovely day for a walk, even though Margaret tried to leave her shoe behind in a particularly muddy section.  Help was at hand though - Anne managed to pull Margaret (and her shoe !) to safety.

Once we finished the walk, we headed to the Wheel Inn for a bite to eat.  Unfortunately, every plate of soup had to be returned to the kitchen to be heated up! At least Alison and I fared better - we didn't have the soup! We received a discount on our bill for the inconvenience, but not sure if we're keen to go back any time soon.

The Ladies Section had a very successful outing on Monday to Canmore GC. We were looked after very well and thoroughly enjoyed the day although the golf scores left a little to be desired.

Score card made it look so easy - plenty of par 3's - what's the problem?  Maybe it was the K(r)appa balls.

Our new member Karen Brodie showed us how, picking up the Best Net prize and being one of the Hidden Team together with Dot (Dorothy) Whytock and Anne Smith.  Best team score with the Kappa  ball went to Iris Robertson, Linda Mailer and our Captain Alison Knight.  Sheena won the Endeavour Prize although to be fair she didn't try much harder than the rest of us.

There's always next year and Ladies do you think we need new sweaters?

To see all the evidence click on  Photo Album  but here are the important ones.

Well done Karen

Hidden Team - Dot, Karen & Anne with Captain

Best score with Kappa Ball - Iris, Alison & Linda

Sheena & Alison
