60 Renfrewshire County Ladies, and some guests, had a memorable Dinner on Thursday evening at Haggs Castle G.C., and were treated to a ‘Welcome’ drink of Prosecco to celebrate their 110th Anniversary.

However we were sorry to hear of Past Captain Pamela Mackenzie’s accident in preparing for the event, and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Haggs Castle G.C. was the perfect venue, with a lovely meal and excellent service.

The meal was preceded by a wonderful toast from Centenary Past Captain Christeen Finlayson

She said " It gives me great pleasure to stand here to propose a Toast to the Renfrewshire Ladies County Golf Association In its 110th Year. It seems like no time since we were at the Glynhill hotel, celebrating our Centenary!"

"It is very encouraging to see 63 ladies here tonight and 17 Out of 22 Renfrewshire golf clubs are represented. Our Association has been guided, and our standards kept high over the past ten years by captains Trish Brown, Maureen Woodhead, Gillian McGinlay, Gillian Kyle and our 110th Captain, June Lockhart. "

"It goes without saying, they have been ably assisted by the long-serving Honorary Life President, Wendy Cameron, and Honorary Past presidents Eileen Gibb and Jennifer Mack along with many committee Members who have given generously of their time and knowledge."

"With great enthusiasm, I did look through the all the Minutes of the past ten years, but you will be happy to Know - if not estatic! - that as so much has happened I will only mention a very few highlights - for example ---- We were the Scottish County Champions in 2010 and 2017, Megan Briggs was the Scottish Ladies Champion in 2009, followed by Alyson McKechin in 2013, and, of course, Eilidh Briggs played in the Curtis Cup in St. Louis, America, in 2014."

"I must congratulate all our talented and dedicated players who have kept Renfrewshire’s name in the fore- front of ladies amateur golf, and I have no doubt that by the time our annual general meeting comes around on the 5th of November, there will be additional feats to be added to their success. This also applies to the future of our junior golf members who will carry the baton on into our 120th celebration".

She finally wished the Renfrewshire Ladies County Golf Association continued warm friendship and every success for the future and she asked the Ladies, to be upstanding and join her in a toast to our association - affectionately known as the R.L.C.G.A.

This was then followed by a Grace from President Pearl Orr. The second half of the evening saw Julie Wilson receive some Bombay Gin on account of sitting on the ‘lucky seat’, and then came our very entertaining speech from the inimitable Karen Maxwell, Past Captain of D & A. Part of her speech certainly put a new slant on the ‘Cycle of Life’!!

The musical part of the evening began with a visit from Parisienne Fifi Lemonde (aka Moira Kerr) then some more entertainment from the songstress to complete an excellent evening.

Vice Captain Sandra Littlejohn ended the evening with a Vote of Thanks, where special mention was made of our 2 Carols – Carol McNally for her efforts in making the Hall appear extra special and welcoming, and Carol Fell for her skills in allowing us to sign up online, the make up of the table menu cards and taking photographs and videos throughout.
