Our outing this year took us to the Burntisland Ladies Greensome. Before we teed off we just about cleared the tombola table of prizes - Linda & Iris even managed to win matching golf caps. Only Liz, Dot & Agnes were unlucky (or some might say 'lucky'!) not to win a prize. Iris did try to offload her blue 'fork handles' but they were having none of it.
Eventually we did make it to the 1st tee. Everyone enjoyed the course with some great views across the Forth. Some of us probably remember it more than others - thanks to Liz & Annette on the drinks cart. The non-KJVI ladies some of us were playing with joined in with the frivolities too.
Alison and Moira L. ensured KJVI appeared in the main prizewinners list - Alison had the longest bronze drive and Moira was nearest the pin.
In our own comp, Moira L. and Michelle won the best nett prize, with Agnes and Pat runners up. Karen and Moira C. won the prize for nearest the pin in 2 on 18th (some ladies from other clubs thought they could compete for this too!). Pam & Sheena won the prize for Endeavour and Iris & Pat came up trumps in the Sweepy.
We finished off with a lovely meal in the clubhouse before jumping back on the bus and heading home.
Thanks to Linda for organising the day, Iris for arranging the prizes, Agnes for her macaroons & custard creams and our official photographers Liz & Annette.
Roll on next year.......

16 Teams enjoyed a glorious sunny day at our Tri-am on Sunday. The course was in great condition and was enjoyed by all.
Pictured below are the team with the winning score of 140, Elizabeth Anderson, Susie Williamson and Meg Laidler from Swanson, Edinburgh being presented with their prizes by Lady Captain, Alison Knight. The winning score was 140.
In second place with a score of 141 came our very own Lady Captain, Alison with her team of Helen Clifford and Marjory Leitch from Dunning. (Unfortunately Helen and Marjory left before we were able to get a photo)
In third(also pictured) with 143 came KJVI past-captain Moira Lumby, Caroline Henderson (Aberfeldy) and Jane Yellowlees (Murrayshall).
Nearest the Pin at the 5th - Jan Rae (Auchterarder)

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.

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.

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.

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 😉

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.
