Survey

Scottish Golf have asked if we can help with the dissertation of one of the Ladies squad members by completing a survey.

The survey title is "Motives and Points of Attachment of Golf Spectators in Great Britain" and can be accessed via the following link -

I'm sure any contributions will be gratefully received

Thank you

Past Captains lunch

The Lady Past Captains of ALCGA held their Biennial luncheon at Highgrove House Hotel on Monday 27th January 2020.
Eleven ladies were present representing five decades from the seventies up to the current year. An abundance of talent sat down to lunch with ladies who had represented Ayrshire over the years and two Past Presidents of the former SLGA.
A lovely lunch was served and much chat and reminiscing was enjoyed by all.

Coaching

Some of our senior squad, along with some Juniors and committee members, enjoyed their first coaching session today at Fairways Indoor Arena.

Not only were we able to shelter from the pouring rain but we also made use of the short game area, including bunker practice, long game area and trackman.

A successful morning enjoyed by all those who attended, thanks to resident professional Bobby Rushford for setting up the challenges and his advice.
