A delayed ladies’ Spring Meeting was played at Dunaverty Golf Club in fine weather last Saturday.

Eighteen ladies played with some terrific scoring – nine ladies’ nett scores were in the 60s.

Ailie MacBrayne was once more in fantastic mode carding an outward 35 gross containing five pars and one birdie. Her inward score was equally good with another five pars resulting in 37 gross. With a handicap of 10, this 72 gross resulted in a nett 62 and the win.

It was a very close affair, with second place going to a nett 67, however five ladies carded the score. Eventually Elizabeth Marrison took second place with Nichola Kidd in third.

Ailie had the best gross score, with Elizabeth and Nichola again equal on 79 gross for second place. This once again went in Elizabeth’s favour.

A club spokesperson said: ‘Congratulations to all who took part and special thanks to acting captain Eleanor Hawkins for the prize of a beautifully engraved Royal Scot Crystal vase.’
