First Fling 31 Mar 2018

Twelve ladies took part in a fun Texas Scramble for the First Fling, but sadly the weather got the better of us and it was decided to finish after 8 holes.  The decision to finish early was made all the easier when we discovered Agnes had scored her first hole in one on the 5th, playing with Iris and Alison.  So needless to say, a big celebration was in order! The Easter Eggs were won by Liz, Dot and Pam but the big focus was on Agnes's achievement, much to everyone's delight.  Hopefully the weather will improve for us next time we play, but it didn't stop us having fun today.

Opening Day Sat 24 Mar

What a glorious day we had for Captain v Vice Captain. Of course, it wouldn't be a ladies organised golf day without it being eventful ! 

Firstly we were going to have 2 Lady/Junior combos at the end of our match but unfortunately 2 Juniors pulled out which meant Alison & Iris were left to play in a twosome (I doubt the Juniors must have heard about them !). 

Then one of our ladies dropped out but Super-Sub Helen stepped into the breach - and played a blinder (or was that blind drunk  - due to underhand tactics of Vice Captains side!). 

Finally before we could get off the tee, we had padlock-gate and trolley-gate - needless to say, it was all very entertaining and you couldn't make it up ! 

Certainly a day to remember..........just a pity some people couldn't remember what their trolleys looked like or where they'd left them 😜 

After all that, the result seemed an anticlimax after all the earlier shenanigans, I was delighted 😬 to announce the Vice Captain's Team was victorious, winning 2½pts to the Captain's Teams' 1½pts.

Pre-season Get Together


The Captain welcomed 14 ladies to the first get together of the new season.  Despite a bit of heckling she eventually made it through her opening speech..

Linda handed out the winter league prizes - everybody that had played got a prize, either a sh***y one, a golf ball or, for the lucky ones, hard cash !

After our stovies and nachos, Linda gave some information about handicap changes then we got to the serious part of the evening - the beetle drive!

It's quite a simple game, but,by all accounts, the Captain obviously didn't give a sufficient explanation of the rules - enough said 😬 All I can say is that the beetle impressions in the photo were an improvement on some of the drawn versions.
What a load of beetles !

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 !
