Social Events


Renfrewshire Ladies' County Golf have various social events throughout the season with the Annual Fundraising Beetle Drive being one and another being the Biennial Dinner. By necessity these well attended and highly enjoyable events had to be suspended until the Covid restrictions permitted large indoor gatherings so the following is a look back at the last Biennial/110th Anniversary Dinner held in March 2019 and this year's Beetle Drive on 19th February 2023 at Haggs Castle GC - the last one being held in January 2020.

Biennial Dinner

The last biennial dinner was actually a celebration of the Counties 110th Anniversary and was held on 21st March 2019 at Haggs Castle GC. 60 Renfrewshire County Ladies, and some guests, had a memorable dinner and were treated to a ‘Welcome’ drink of Prosecco to celebrate their 110th Anniversary. CLICK HERE for a full report on this milestone event as well as the photograph album and video, all courtesy of Carol Fell.

Beetle Drive

A very popular County fund-raising event that is held annually on a Sunday afternoon at the end of January/beginning of February in Haggs Castle GC. A number of stall holders are present as well as a stall selling or taking orders for County clothing. Over and above this there is a raffle and a silent auction of donated prizes.

The highlight of the day is the hotly contested Beetle Drive with three prizes on offer; first and second prize for the players with the most points at the end and the third fun prize is for the player with the worst drawn beetle or the most artistic one. Like all good sociable events the afternoon concludes with a cup of tea and cake.

After a hiatus of two years we were delighted to hold the 2023 Beetle Drive on the 19th February at Haggs Castle and we raised a magnificant record-breaking £1400 for the Association funds.
