The Ladies' Club Championships were held on King Jimmy at the weekend. It was a repeat of last year's finals with Moira Lumby and Fiona Farquharson fighting it out for the Scratch and Handicap Titles.

In a reverse of last year's results, Moira beat Fiona 3&1 on Saturday to claim the Club Championship for the first time. On Sunday Fiona beat Moira 4&2 to take her first Handicap Championship.

Well played ladies.

Island Greensomes

A popular fixture is the Island Mixed Greensomes, open to Gents, Ladies, Seniors and Juniors. The format of the annual Mr & Mrs Mixed Competition was changed a couple of years ago to widen its appeal.  All members were invited to enter in any combination of male and female partnerships.
Mums, Dads, Grans, Grandads & Kids – even pals. You could even enter without a partner and we would endeavor to find you one!
Winners this year with an incredible net 64 (15) were junior member Alexander Ewen and our Ladies captain Moira Lumby (and no he doesn't have to marry her because they won!) 

Runner's up were Agnes and Stuart Manattini 69.8 (10.2) - looks like Mum wasn't happy about that missed putt Stuart!

The Mr and Mrs Trophy was retained by Liz and David Angus 70.6 (16.4) - what some people will do to save polishing the trophies!

The Ladies took themselves off to Dunnikier Country Park for their golf outing this year. Unfortunately our usual mini bus was not available so we had to press gang some poor souls into being the nominated drivers for the day Emoji EmojiEmojiEmoji

Well done girls and thank you!

Margaret, Agnes and Annie arrived eventually with the help of two satnavs and a mobile phone - don't ask! 

Team one were at a disadvantage from the start with only two players and a scorecard for the wrong course. The weather was kind and we had one of the warmest days of the summer so far. The course is beautiful - wide open fairways and lots of run. Unfortunately that also applied to the greens where most of us experienced our puts running straight past the hole and off the green. Emoji

There were some excellent scores returned with team Agnes, Iris and Dot returning the winning scores (as it turned out in all categories) so the One Prize per Person rule came into force. 

Congratulations also to Liz and Sheena.

We all had a wonderful day, sunshine, good food and excellent refreshments! Plans are now underway for the next one.
