I am sure many Members will remember the Mure sisters (May and Jessie) who were stalwarts of Ralston Golf Club, the County and the Vets.
Jessie died about 25 years ago just after her 80th birthday. May sadly passed away last week and would have been 104 this Saturday. What an innings! She had been in a Care Home in Paisley for quite a long number of years now.
Jessie and May were known the length and breadth of Scotland in golfing circles and sadly there won't be any of her contemporaries left.
However, there will be a few County and Vet members who will remember May.
Her funeral is on Thursday 1st February at 10am at Woodside Crematorium in Paisley.
When I took up golf in 1981, the Mures were very encouraging and once we started going to Open Days and golfing venues around Scotland and met other golfers, it was amazing how many asked if we knew the Mures when they heard we were from Ralston. — We had to be on our best behaviour !
