4 Ball Better Ball Stableford

We'll, what a scoring night - each of the 6 pairs had under-par scores! Don't know if that's ever happened before?
The winners who came out on top were Moira & Pam with 45 pts. Runners Up were Donna & Pat with 41pts and a bih.
It was lovely to see a good turnout for a few drinks and a bit of banter in the clubhouse afterwards.

Handicap League update - We had our match against Dunning (another home game) on 27 May. Players for King Jimmy were Alison, Pam, Moira L, Dot, and Agnes. Another win with a 3-2 result. Well done ladies!

Our first away match in the HL this season saw us at Murrayshall on 4th June. The lucky team playing in glorious sunshine despite a rotten forecast was Alison, Moira L, Dot, Karen and Agnes. Sadly that was our first defeat in the league this season losing 3-2.

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 😉
