    • What a glorious day to play on the Wee .Course, with the course in such excellent condition. Seven members from the Ladies Committee and seventeen members from the Wee Course Section formed six teams of four to play in a Texas Scramble, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Another four members joined in afterwards for a very tasty light lunch.  Thanks were expressed to the organisers, Meriel and Shirley and to the caterers by the winning team captain, Katie Chapman.  We are all looking forward to the next one now, which is scheduled for Wednesday 6th September.

Blairgowrie Ladies Friendly Matches

Good morning ladies. Just a quick thank you, mid season, for the support you have given to the  Friendly Matches fixture list this season.  There has been a good response for most of the fixtures, but I have become aware that some of our games have coincided with the Perth and Kinross County fixtures.  

This would appear to be the case on Monday 29th May, for our home match against Crail at 1.00pm.  Therefore, I am asking for 2 players to come forward to play in this match.  I hope you will be able to assist, as it would be sad that a club our size could only field 6 players for a home tie.

Please just contact me by email, or on 07759947227.  I await a positive response.

Just a wee reminder that it is Turn Up and Play Day on Tuesday 23rd May. This is a fun day and all ladies are most welcome. Be there for 9.45am when Carolyn Haddow will organise how we play.

Ladies, it is with very deep regret that I have to advise you of the death of Muriel Rae, a very active and popular member of Blairgowrie Golf Club and a past Ladies’ Captain. 

A funeral service will be held in Kinclaven Church on Wednesday, May 17 at 11 a.m., interment thereafter in the churchyard, to which all friends are invited.


It really was an idyllic day, full sunshine, warm with a blue sky and the Rosemount Course was in perfect condition, to welcome forty ladies and their guests to the Senior Ladies’ Invitation Day, organised by Vice Captain Janice Lang & Carolyn Haddow in a Greensomes format.  And to add something special – we were allowed to play the new 6th and 7th holes on Rosemount!!!!  Great excitement and very much appreciated by the ladies playing – two superb new holes and they were certainly looking wonderful in the sunshine.

On the 1st tee and ready to go
The latest friendly Match was played today Monday, 8th May at Auchterarder in conditions  resembling  the Riviera....not a cloud in the sky and  dazzling sunshine.  All the games were tight,  and the playing conditions were tricky, but our Team notched up another fine win 2.5 to 1.5, continuing our good run of form. 
Thanks to Margaret Hunter (Captain), Jo Stewart, Cathy Irvine, Margaret McGlashan, Julie Wink, Anne Spence, Dianne Wallace and Judith Clowe.

Calling all players. I need your help on Sunday 14th May.  Our first fixture of the Handicap League is due to be played away to  King James, with a 2.00pm tee off time. I need 1 player to complete the team of 5 players.  King James have requested a Sunday date due to a shortage of players available to play in the evenings. 

This is the only fixture in this league on a Sunday afternoon, so your help would be grately appreciated.  There is no handicap restriction and certainly non that says you have to have a silver handicap.  So come on Ladies, please assist.

Winning ways continued in our friendly matches, when Ann Henry lead an enthusiastic team against Caledonia (Carnoustie) at home.  It would appear, some wind and cool weather was still evident when both teams played on the first day of May over the Rosemount course. The result on the day was 3.5 to .5, so many thanks to Ann Henry (Captain), Jacqui Landsburgh, Miriam Rooney, Sandy Bushby, Dianne Wallace, Anne Spence, Jennifier Livingston and Kathy Cameron.

Both teams, enjoyed a meal following the match, with both captains giving their vote of thanks.

The responce of players to date, to play in matches has been very good. However, I note the Crail home fixture on 29th May does not, at this time seem to be attracting many names.  Please check your diaries, so we can fulfill this fixture.

Enjoy your summer of golf.
