Message from Anne  "The weather here has been fab but I hear its been very cold back home. We have decided to stay in NZ longer than planned and I wondered if you could convey my apologies to Aileen that I will not be back in time for the dinner"
Delighted to here you are having a great time Anne

25th February 2005 (Friday): Lochwinnoch Pair into the Winter Foursomes Final
and Elspeth Hanlon is the best RLCGA  Player in Spain

Maureen Cook and Sheila Shaw (Lochwinoch) managed to win against Morag Turner and Beatrice Orr (Kilmacolm) - 4 & 2. yesterday played over Lochwinnoch.
 Sheila  reported  "
It was a very friendly match (our first home game incidentally) and having decided to postpone the start for an hour after overnight snow, the Course was completely green in the sunshine and very playable.  The Greenkeeper was very accommodating allowing us to play to most of the big greens and also from the front of the ladies tees (and not off the mats like everyone else at the moment).  So, all in all, a very good match - which I think they enjoyed too, although the result went in our favour"
In the Final they now meet
Audrey  Barclay and Penny Baglin (East Renfrewshire). The date and venue is still to be arranged. For all the results click on the Winter Foursomes link at the top of this page

Doggy with sore leg !

Just a big thank you to everyone that has sent me cards, flowers and best wishes after my wee op.
Thanks to Captain Aileen and all at RLCGA for the beautiful bouquet of flowers that I received.

Recovery is going well and hopefully I will be able to update the website some time !!



2nd February 2005: Webmaster and Computer Problems

This is to apologise for the lack of news recently but my computer went on the blink and was away at the Computer Hospital for 10 days. There also may not be some news for a wee while since I have to go into a People  Hospital tomorrow for a wee op.

Meantime the only news at the moment is that
Audrey  Barclay and Penny Baglin (East Renfrewshire) are through to the final of the Winter Foursomes beating Moira Hogg and Merope Dunlop (Old Ranfurly) 3 and 2 in the Semi Finals. Click on the link above to see all the results so far.

Finally the Guest Book has had some success in that Evy MacGregor (Ranfurly Castle) has been able to get in touch with friends out in Indonesia that they had lost touch with !

Apologies for not sorting out all the competitions for 2005, however, I know you have all received your fixture diaries.

Finally as Aileen said in her message yesterday, please do come to the dinner on March 9th, as I'm sure it will be a very entertaining evening.
