Post from your Captain

Happy new year to all lady golfers of Ayrshire
I hope you are all well, and enjoyed the festive season.
After a turbulent start to my 1st year as ALCGA captain, things have quickly settled down and the committee and myself are committed to driving Ayrshire onward and upward,
Thanks to all Ayrshire lady members and friends who joined us at Barassie, for our cookery demonstration night.
Which everyone enjoyed, and proves there’s more to life than golf.
Watch this space for our next social event, hopefully March time.
These events and golf competitions don’t run by themselves, and I really do appreciate all committee members, who strive to make Ayrshire enjoyable for everyone
We have made a concerted effort to recruit new members, please see your notice boards, where county reps post news on memberships, winter ties & social events.
We have 5 new members, whom I’m sure you’ll all welcome to ALCGA
A subtle reminder that subscriptions are now due, and should be made before the end of January, by either cheque or bank transfer. Don’t forget for voucher winners that if Santa was good to you and you don’t need any golf equipment, vouchers can be used as payment.
I wish you all the best for the forthcoming season, and look forward to playing our great courses in Ayrshire
Always yours
Liz Wilson

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all our ALCGA members. Look forward to seeing you all in the new year! 

Christmas Capers

Thank you very much to all those who attended the Christmas Capers event at Kilmarnock Barassie last week, I'm sure you will all agree that the food was fantastic and a brilliant night was had by all. We raised an excellent £400 to go towards future county events. So once again thank you very much for your support.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

Ayrshire v Renfrewshire Girls' Friendly Match

The girls were treated to a beautiful, 'though cold, day at Pollok for the return match against Renfrewshire.  Of the three matches on the course, Ayrshire won two and lost one.   In the top game, a singles, Claire McLaughlin was 3 down but turned it around to win by 2 holes.  The remaining games were greensomes where Katy Hill and Freya Russell found it tough giving 22 strokes to their opponents who played lovely golf, while Luisa Gibson and Cristina McCracken played steadily to win their game.  All the girls enjoyed the opportunity of playing a lovely golf course and appreciated the warm welcome from Renfrewshire and Pollok 😊


For those of you unable to attend this years AGM I can confirm that it
was agreed to increase our membership fee to £65. It was also agreed
that any Junior member, with a handicap, will automatically become a
member ie no fee will be applicable.  It is hoped that this may
encourage any Juniors we have in Ayrshire to play in more competitions.
If you have any Juniors at your clubs or if you know of anyone then
please send us her details. The Non playing subscription remains at £5.

Our new Treasurer is Sandra Johnson who is a member at Kilbirnie Place
Golf Club.  Sandra has served on committee for the last 2 years and we
are delighted that she is taking on this role.

She will be eagerly awaiting your subscription payments which can be
sent to her at 16 Lochlibo Court, Irvine, KA11 1RE.  Alternatively you
can pay via BACS to our account - 00118938 sort code 80-09-88 Remember
