Handicap League Match at Alyth 21 June

Thursday saw a beautiful summer's evening at Alyth. For myself the longest day took on a whole new meaning as I explored some of the lesser seen areas of the course. Dot won her match but unfortunately the other 4 of us lost, although we all had a good time.  Thanks to Dot, Moira L, Michelle, Agnes and Pat for taking part.  We look forward to doing better in the return match next year.

Ladies Open Tri-am Sun 17 Jun

Another successful Ladies Tri-am was held at King Jimmy's yesterday! 

Thankfully the weather stayed dry, just maybe not as warm as we've been used to recently.

The Lady Captain's team were the leaders in the clubhouse for some time (they were out first !).........until the last few of the 12 teams came in !

Congratulations to Agnes Manattini, Donna Nixon & Moira Aitken (Dunning) who came out on top with a score of 129, followed by Dorothy Whytock, Diana Alston & Jean Jasper (both Murrayshall) on 138, and in 3rd place Michelle McKay, Sheena Scott & Sandra Barber (both Strathmore) on 140.

Nearest the Pin was won by Karen Brodie, and Straightest Drive won by Donna Nixon.

Thanks go to all who supported the event including some new visitors from Strathmore, Royal Musselburgh, Swanston, Strathaven & Pumpherston golf clubs.  Hopefully we'll see them again next year.  

Thank to those who donated raffle prizes and bought raffle tickets. One of our visitors, Linda Allan from Strathaven, won the golf carry-bag and told me it was exactly what she needed - not often you're lucky enough to get something from a raffle that you actually want/need ! Mind you, she probably hadn't expected to come over with one bag and have to carry two backπŸ˜…  

Thanks also to the greens staff, bar/catering staff, the Junior and his 'not-so junior' assistants (!) for helping ladies with their clubs & Moira C. for her floral decorations. 

All-in-all, a good day was had by allπŸ‘

Murrayshall Handicap League Match

Sunday afternoon's match ended with a 3-2 home win to us.  On the day Murrayshall were only able to bring 4 ladies so Liz was able to rest her knee rather than play.  Karen and Pat won their matches while Dot and Alison lost, but the overall result was a success for us. The weather held yet again and the day was enjoyed by all. Thank you team!

Friendly Match v Alyth Ladies

The sun shone on Thur, but sadly we didn't. Fiona and Donna blasted their way to glory while Michelle and Iris narrowly lost on the 18th.  Agnes and Pat lost an earlier lead and had to accept defeat. Thanks to all who participated and better luck next time!

Friendly Match v Perth Ladies

Thanks to Dot, Moira C, Fiona, Donna, Iris and Pat for making up the winning King Jimmy team today against Perth Ladies. An excellent result of 3-0 which hopefully we will be able to repeat when we play the return match next year at the Inch.
The weather was once again excellent and the day was enjoyed by all.

Blairgowrie Handicap League Match

Thanks to Team King Jimmy who turned out for the match last night - Moira L., Liz, Michelle, Alison & Pat.  We all enjoyed our matches, even though the last couple of games were almost playing in the dark!  Unfortunately the result was a win for Blairgowrie 3.5pts to 1.5pts.  But at least it was an improvement on our score the last time we played up there, when we were beaten 4-1.  We're getting better !

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 !
