The Friday turn-up golf got off to a great start today.
We had a great turnout of thirteen ladies. Lovely weather, good golf, good fun and a wee bite afterwards.
This is highly recommended to any ladies wishing to keep their golf going over the winter. Every Friday at 10:00am. Just turn up at about 09:45 and we draw the groups out of a hat…

Scotland finished off their Home International matches with a win over host nation Wales.
Kieran, partnered with Calum Fyfe, won their foursomes match this morning and although playing well in the afternoon singles lost to Paddy Mullins.
Scotland’s win secured third place over Wales with England beating the holders Ireland to win the championship.
Scotland will have been disappointed with their opening match defeat against Ireland, however, they nearly bounced back against England but were narrowly beaten 8 – 7 today at Conwy Golf Club in Wales.
Kieran also bounced back from his narrow defeats with a fine 3&2 win over England’s David Langley in the singles matches.
Tomorrows final matches see Scotland play the host nation Wales for third and fourth place with Ireland and England battling it out to see who will be champions.
We wish Kieran and Scotland good luck and continued good form tomorrow.
