The Trophies
The Annual Greenlees Lunch took place yesterday, 18 October, in the Old Course Ranfurly clubhouse.
This was attended by 65 ladies representing 26 clubs.

Mrs. Maureen Mitchell opened the proceedings by saying how pleased she was to see so many ladies attending.
She took the opportunity to remind the club secretaries that their lists of 12 players and the Greenlees fee of £15 were now due if they had not already sent them in.
Next she introduced the top table guests - Mrs Ann Dunn who was the previous Convenor who had worked hard for the League and had done all the work at the beginning of the season before Maureen took over.
Her other guest was Mrs Hazel Kirkland, the Lady Captain of Old Ranfurly, who welcomed everyone on behalf of the Club.
Maureen next said Grace and the ladies were then served an excellent lunch. Lots of pleasant chatter could be heard and it was obvious that everyone was enjoying catching up with old friends.

After coffee was served, Maureen invited the Captain to present the trophies to the winning teams.
Division 3 was won by Hilton Park with Prestwick Saint Nicholas winners of Division 2.
The runners up in Division 1 were Loudoun Gowf who were narrowly beaten by the overall winners - Cathkin Braes. Their secretary, Barbara Aird, then made a short speech saying how enjoyable it was competing in the matches in a friendly spirit.
She then gave a vote of thanks for all the hospitality received from Old Ranfurly and thanked Maureen and her helpers for organising a very successful lunch.

The two guests were presented with the flowers from the top table.

Mrs Mitchell then reminded the secretaries present that the AGM was being held on Tuesday, 21 November at Old Ranfurly.
She concluded by wishing everyone a safe journey home.
