Winter Walk 2018

6 intrepid lady golfers went for a wee dawdle yesterday morning, starting off from Broxden, up to Mailer Hill, down towards Craigie area then up by Buckie Braes and back to Broxden.  Thanks to Sheena for suggesting the route. We came across something you don't very often see on countryside walks --- a lone piper (photo below to prove it).
After our walk, we met up with Pam and Margaret W. at the Cherrybank Inn for a lovely lunch - just a pity it wasn't warm enough to sit outside!

Cheque Presentation

The proceeds from the Gin Tasting were officially handed over today after the final winter Texas Scramble. It wasn't a blank cheque - honest! (just not a very thick marker pen).

Gin Tasting Day 3rd Feb

Alison was a bit nervous beforehand, hoping the day was going to turn out ok – she didn’t need to worry, put a good smattering of ladies (and a few gents)  together with some gin and she had nothing to worry about !

Of course, it’s all down to the preparation and planning and the gin team had it down to a (G&) T.  It wouldn’t have happened without Alison’s idea and her merry (hic!) band of assistants namely Linda, Liz & Pam to get this show on the road.

The ladies, as usual, gave their full support to the day, whether it be infusing gins, donating tombola prizes, providing garnishes, using their creative skills for signs, table decorations and tombola basket covers, harassing sponsors for donations and of course, consuming a fair few G&T’s. 

It was a hugely successful day raising over £1500 for club funds. Don’t know how we’re going to top this one !

Christmas Golf & Meal

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 !

A few photos from the day...

Congratulations to Agnes & Pam

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.

Handicap League Match v Crieff 23 Aug 2017

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!

Handicap League v Dunkeld 20 Aug 2017

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.
