Beetle drive Winner Donna Jackson with Captain Gillian Kyle - Photo courtesy of Fiona Armour
A super afternoon was had by the 87 ladies at Ralston Golf Club yesterday (7th February) . What better way to spend a very wet, Sunday afternoon!
The stalls of tablet, jewellery, scarves and handbags were available for viewing and purchasing before we settled down to the games ahead. 
A break for coffee and cake allowed time for more shopping and to add bids to the silent auction. Thanks go to Cameron Kyle (Calder Millerfield) , Isabell Donnelly and Jennifer Mack who donated the golf at Gleneagles, Dunaverty and Troon Portland respectively.
The raffle had an excellent variety of bottles, golf lessons, golf balls, chocolates etc and hopefully most ladies went home with a prize. Our thanks go to the Renfrewshire Pros and all others who donated so generously.
After 6 noisy games of “Beetle”, the overall winner was Donna Jackson with 60 points with Honorary President Wendy Cameron, a close runner up.
The main aim was to raise money for County funds as well as catch up with friends we haven’t seen over the winter. I’m delighted to announce that we made just over £1300 yesterday. A great achievement. 
Thank you to EVERYONE who helped, donated or attended.
Looking forward to seeing you all when the season begins.

Left raffle prizes.

A couple of raffle prizes were left on the hall table at Ralston GC yesterday. The SLGA Centenary book and a wine bag with a bottle and selfie stick! I’m thinking the ladies popped the bags down, went to the cloakroom then left leaving them there.

Also, another 4 prizes were unclaimed – orange, yellow, pink and buff tickets on them. If unclaimed, I will save them for a raffle later on in the season.
