Club Captain George Roberts chaired the annual Douglas Park Burns Supper on Friday, 26th January.
A large and appreciative audience were thoroughly entertained in an evening billed as one of ‘Word and Song’.
The evening got off to a great start with a rousing address to the haggis by Past Captain Colin McEwen.
After an excellent dinner, Jeanie Sutherland won a whisky and chocolate matching experience for four guests at Glengoyne Distillery, very kindly donated by club member Archie McSporran.
The after-dinner entertainment included a quite outstanding Immortal Memory delivered by main speaker Graham Hill in tandem with young Zoe Craig. To see how Zoe won the hearts of the audience with her rendition of Burns’ poems and songs was a particular highlight of the evening.
Graham and Zoe were ably supported by Charlie Newlands M.B.E. who toasted “the lassies” in a most amusing and entertaining fashion and Tayler Morgan who gave an excellent and feisty reply.
Musical interludes were provided by the exquisite harmonies of the Westertones, who also led the audience in a stirring ‘singalong’ towards the end of the evening. A warm and witty vote of thanks was delivered by vice-captain Alan Dunipace.
Immense thanks to Lisa Cuthbert for her organisation and support both in the lead-up to the evening and on the night itself.
Graham Hill was kind enough to e mail that ” it was a wonderful evening and one of the best Burns Suppers I have ever been at ………..the audience were super and a real pleasure to speak in front of”. For someone with such wide experience of Burns Suppers in Scotland and beyond to write such a testimonial is praise indeed for the Douglas Park “experience”.
Thanks to all of you who attended for making it such a special night
Congratulations to all our winners this year

LADIES ANNUAL CHRISTMAS LUNCH
Douglas Park Ladies do it again! 97 Ladies turned out in force to enjoy a delicious Christmas Lunch on Sunday. We were delighted to welcome so many of our new members to their first social event. The Ladies’ Choir once again entertained us with two delightful Christmas songs with everyone joining in for several more which certainly got us all into the Christmas spirit! Needless to say, there was much laughter and much chat! My sincere thanks to the Ladies’ Committee for all their help, to Eileen Hunter and Margaret Morris and the Choir and particularly to Lisa, Pauline and all their staff for an excellent meal, faultlessly served in a very festive looking lounge.

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.

15th November 2017
Over 100 members and their guests attended this year’s prizegiving in the clubhouse last Friday evening. A great time was had by all accounts, enjoying the two course meal beforehand, the Cheese & Wine and celebrating as a winner or with the winners.
The evening began with the presentation of Honorary Badges by Club Captain, Alistair Forrest to our two most recent recipients of Honorary membership, John Watson OBE and Past Captain John Telfer. Both gave a short speech of thanks thereafter.
The prize table was heaving with silverware and photographs of most of the winners are shown below. There were many favourable comments about the atmosphere in the lounge and of course, our grateful thanks go again to Lisa Cuthbert and her team for looking after our refreshments!
LADIES ANNUAL COFFEE MORNING : SATURDAY 4TH NOVEMBER 2017
We had a marvellous turn out for our Annual Coffee Morning in aid of Cancer Research UK. 85 Ladies and Captain Alistair, who we were delighted to welcome, thoroughly enjoyed the morning browsing the stalls, enjoying the coffee and home baking. My sincere thanks to all who attended and to all members of the club who made donations, gave raffle prizes, bought tickets and contributed to the Home Produce Stall. Our thanks too to Pauline and her staff, to our stall holders and to the Ladies’ Committee for their hard work and delicious home baking.
We raised the remarkable sum of £933! There is still some tablet for sale at the bar so that sum will increase slightly. Congratulations everyone and thank you for being so generous in aid of such a worthy charity!
PS Unclaimed raffle prizes are in the Ladies Locker Room – I will leave a list of the winning tickets at the Bar tomorrow.

Great excitement as 18 GIG Ladies took to the course on Wednesday to play their first competition at Douglas Park – a Texas scramble. The ladies played off the blue tees and played really well considering they have only been members since May. The winning team in the morning competition with a gross score of 36, including a very impressive magic 2 on the 5th hole, was Kerina Morgan, Catherine Parbrook, and Morag Thomson; Runners-up were Sarah Bell, Linda Meldrum and Shona Stewart. In the evening competition the winners were Linda Donaldson and Denise Sifton with a gross score of 40 which is excellent given it was a team of only two players. Each team was accompanied by a Buddy who kept the score and helped with etiquette and rules which was greatly appreciated by the players.
All in all a very enjoyable competition and a great start! Well done GIG Ladies. Watch this space!
Our annual match was played on Sunday 3rd September in a relaxed but very
competitive spirit resulting in a win for the Vice Captain’s Team 3-1, with
some of the matches being very close. Well done Ladies! A delicious lunch
rounded off a most enjoyable day- all the better for having avoided the
forecasted rain which held off until the last group were in! Many thanks to
everyone who contributed to the day. Photos of the 2 teams, which should
have included Christine Baird in the Captain’s Team are shown below
The Ladies’ committee outing was held at Caldwell Golf Club on 24th August. 24 ladies took part in teams of 4 playing a 4 ball better ball stableford. There was an added twist in the form of a piece of string 4ft long given to each player to be used 4 times each during the round giving each lady 4 ‘gimmees’.
The course was rather wet in places but as some holes were under a lake the day before we were lucky to be able to play at all. The weather was also extremely kind to us , only starting to rain once we were finished.
The catering was excellent & we were well looked after by the staff at Caldwell.
The winning team was : Jinty, Laura, Susan & Janice after count back!
Lady Vice Captain
On a rare dry day, sandwiched between two downpours on the Wednesday and the Thursday evening, our 32nd Pro-Am took place with an excellent field of 40 teams.
The event was in aid of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland and our Headline Sponsor on the day was Just Employment Law. Many thanks to both of them for their commitment to our event and their hard work on the run-up and on the day itself. (Note the weather conditions which the last four groups had to endure after 7 pm)
Photos below from the day and the Prize-Giving. We were pleased that Janet Dow was able to attend as our guest of honour to present the prizes.
The winning amateur team was from The Killie Trust and the winning Pros (who shared a 68 on the day) were South African Gareth Hardy (Prestwick St Nicholas) and Scot Paul O’Hara (North Lanarkshire Leisure)
