Anne & Robin
Dot & Steve

A merry band of golfers took part in the Island Mixed on Friday evening. Despite a few showers everyone enjoyed the game and some refreshments in the Clubhouse afterwards. We had a good entry with 10 pairs taking part. It is always a good sign after a mixed format to see everyone  on good terms with their partners at the end of play!

Although it was a fun evening, competition was still fierce - the Smiths had a good night! The winners, hot on the heels of their success at the Kings and Queens, were the Dynamic Duo Anne and Robin with a 71. They also walk away with the magnificent  Mr & Mrs Trophies.  Runners up with 71.5 were Dot  Whytock  and Steve who pipped Captain Ian McPhee and his partner Margaret Watson with the better inward half.

Hopefully we can build on the success of the evening and persuade more members to participate next time. It was a great way for the different sections to get together.

Apologies to the Captain's Table who seem to be missing from the Motley Crew below.

King Jimmy Ladies had their annual golf outing  on Thursday. This year we went to Turnhouse near Edinburgh airport on a reciprocal visit with the Turnhouse Ladies who came to the Island.

We were very lucky with the weather. It was very windy at the top of the hills but the wind served to keep the rain away. We all got in relatively dry with only a brief shower.  We found the contours of the course a challenge but really enjoyable. There were a few blind holes which caused us a problem and resulted in a few lost balls!

A wonderful day was had by all and we send our grateful thanks to Turnhouse for looking after us so well. Special thanks to the gallant gentlemen who greeted us with  'I hope you ladies play as well as you look!'

Congratulations to our prize winners:

Best Silver - Muriel McPherson
Best Bronze - Sheena MacGregor
Hidden Team - Michelle McKay, Linda Mailer and Iris Robertson.

Well done Dorothy - brilliantly organised and the colour coordinated prizes were a master stroke!
