Sixty nine ladies attended this year’s Annual meeting, during which Ladies’ Captain Christina Graham and key speakers, Honorary Treasurer Denise Macnaughton, Match Secretary Barbara Aitchison, and Junior Girls’ Convenor Susan Rattray gave a summary of their year. In addition to the usual reports and business, two additional matters were raised: the Ladies’ Constitution was updated and a lively discussion was held on the proposal made to the meeting that the Silver Cup Knockout Competition should be open to Silver Players only. The cup, the Ladies’ Section’s first trophy, was presented to the Ladies Section, ninety six years ago, in 1921 by the Gents Committee, to be played for by all Lady Members. A vote was taken and the proposal was accepted.
Ladies’ Captain Christina thanked her committee and all members for their support over the season and for helping to raise £2380 for the chosen charities this year. She also made special mention of the Patrick Trophy team on winning the trophy two years running and for the third time in 4 years.
Three new committee members, Kirsty Fergusson Honorary Secretary, Brenda Murray Honorary Treasurer and Karen Neilson were welcomed. The retiring members, Past Captain Mary McLean, Joyce Ferguson and Barbara Aitchison, were thanked for their commitment and hard work to committee and club.
Ladies’ Vice Captain Anne Reid introduced proposed new Vice Captain elect Denise MacNaughton, retiring Honorary Treasurer.
The ladies’ champion, Fiona Rattray concluded the annual meeting with a most amusing speech.

The Douglas Park Past Captains’ team reached the final of the Andra Kirkaldy Trophy which was played on Sunday at Cawder Golf Course against old foes Lenzie.
In a very close fought match our team was beaten by one hole with the final pairing of Graham White & Captain Brian Thistle winning their tie 3 up but just missing out on achieving an overall halved match.
My thanks to all Past Captains who performed so admirably this year and to Captain Brian Thistle who came in as a late substitute on Sunday morning.
Winners of the Parent & Child division and overall winners of the Family Foursomes Trophy, Jackson & Fraser Low receive their trophy from Captain Brian Henry Thistle, with their winning score of 38 Stableford Points (b.i.h.) Congratulations to all who participated and helped organise a superb day
