Janette Hamilton  lost her engagement  ring last week, while playing on the Wee Course. Janette thinks it happened on either the 1st hole or the 9th.  If you are playing the Wee Course in the  next few days,  do please keep an eye out for the ring. Thanks.


Liz Fertacz came third in the Barnardo's Grand Final which was played at Arbroath Golf Club on Friday 23rd August, with 38 ladies taking part.  With all the entry fees and donations this competition has raised over £2000 for Barnardo's.  In first place was Sheila Brunton from Carnoustie Ladies with 39 points BIH, second place was Jackie Brown  from Monifieth  and  third  was Liz with 36 points. 
Well done Liz!

Ladies - it's that time of year again! In order for your CONGU handicap to remain active you must have returned at least three qualifying scores each year. Those not meeting the minimum number of scores will be identified with an "i" (inactive) which will appear on their CONGU certificate and handicap lists. Qualifying scores of less than three will not be carried forward to the next year. The "i" will be removed from the player's handicap as soon as three qualifying scores have been returned.
If you are unable to play in sufficient Medals and Stablefords you can use the Supplementary Scores System in order to achieve this .
Supplementary Scores System
In order to enter a supplementary card you need to play 18 holes with a member who can mark your card....your marker must have a current valid handicap.  Hand in your completed and signed card, clearly marked "For Handicap"  to Reception. With supplementary cards, your handicap may go up or down. If in doubt, play off the lower handicap ALWAYS.
A full explanation about CONGU handicaps  can be found in the CONGU Handbook which is in the Locker Room
If you need someone to mark a card please phone the Vice-Captain, Margaret Hunter,  and a marker will be arranged for you.

The SGU has asked us to thank all the ladies who volunteered to help with ball spotting and car parking duties at the Scottish Amateur Championship last week. It was a great week culminating in a keenly-contested Final over two rounds on Saturday 3rd August.
Some of us  followed the finalists for the two rounds. The morning was benign, but the afternoon brought gale-force winds and wind-swept hair-styles.

LAST REMINDER :  The Senior Ladies Invitation Day is on Tuesday 13th August. Late entries will be accepted. Please contact the Conveners  : Avril Smith or Elizabeth Davie asap.
