Ladies GetIntoGolf Evening Success


Following major publicity on social media and the delivery of 5000 flyers and 120 posters by 57 Douglas Park Ladies locally and further afield, 57 Ladies (yes honestly!) turned up at our Ladies Open Evening on Wednesday.

Our guests spent a happy evening testing their golf skills on various fun activities set up by Robert, had guided tours of the Golf Club, an information session followed by an excellent buffet. The highlight, however was definitely the Safari Tour of the course by Drew, suitably attired in his Safari hat and accompanied by assorted jungle beasts.

So Far Sixteen Ladies have taken out the Get into Golf Membership and lots of application forms have been requested.

Many thanks to all the ladies who helped with the distribution of the flyers, to the 24 ladies who worked so hard on the evening at registration and as guides, all of whom were praised to the hilt in the feedback survey for their friendliness and helpfulness, to Ann Scott for her fantastic help, Robert, Lisa and Drew and particular thanks to Carol Fell who was a major force behind all the publicity before, during and after the event.

Fiona and Alex win the County Winter Foursomes Final

D&A County Winter Foursomes Winners Alex Mennie and Fiona Rattray (Douglas Park)

The D&A County Winter Foursomes Final was played yesterday at Cardross Golf Club between the Douglas Park Golf Club pairing of Alex Mennie and Fiona Rattray against Mandy Allan (Milngavie) and Lindsay McCubbin (Hilton Park).
Fiona and Alex had to give 8 shots and with the conditions being awful and no mats allowed it was a difficult day for all the players.

Both couples led by one hole, turn by turn. However, Lindsay and Mandy led by 2 up at one point.

Fiona & Alex eventually were 1 up after 17 and as they said they could not have made it any harder for themselves. —-
Alex drove into trees, Fiona got it out, Alex hit a poor third and with the pin in a really tough position at the back of the green Fiona then narrowly missed the clubhouse windows landing about 10cms form the Out of Bounds!
Alex chipped on with a great shot for a gimme which was not given.

Meantime Mandy hit a good drive down the middle, Leslie hit a good shot which landed in a huge puddle and stopped in it right at the front of the green. Mandy chipped to the very back, Lindsay whose putting had been brilliant, was short.
Fiona putted in for 6, Mandy putted to take the match on to the 19th and missed and Fiona and Alex were the winners! — Despite the horrible weather the spectators had really enjoyed what was an exciting match!


Thanks go to Christina Graham (Ladies Captain)  for the report
