LADIES NEWS

Firstly, congratulations to our new nominated Lady Vice Captain Helen Baird and Lady President Mary Corry. They will take up their positions at the AGM and we wish them every success in their forthcoming roles. 
On Tuesday the course was taken over by ladies in colourful outfits as they played the traditional Snowman Competition. Aterwards they enjoyed mulled wine and lunch. In first place were Jenny Hopper and Diane Quinn. Runners up were Lady Vice Captain Barbara Edwards and Norma Gilvray and in third place were Muriel Colthurst and Lana McCart. Best costume was won by Joan Hull and the 'pulley outey' went to Hilary McIlroy and Elaine Baird.
Next Tuesday 18 December there will be a "Turkey Trot" - this will be a 9 hole fun competition in a team format. Details will be revealed on the day so come at the usual time of 10am and experience some Christmas madness. 

Last Friday 7th the Ladies' Annual Dinner and Presentation of Prizes took place. It was an evening with lots of sparkle and over 70 ladies enjoyed an excellent meal in the beautifully decorated clubhouse. Thank you to everyone who helped with the organisation of the evening in any way.
Congratulations to Wendy Elliott who won Golfer of the Year. Congratulations also to Jenny Hopper who was Senior Golfer of the Year. 
All the silverware which had been won during the year was presented and it was lovely to see so many different winners this year. The birdie tree was won by Jenny Hopper and a new trophy for the Partridge Tree by the Lady Captain. The ILGU silver medal went to Wendy Elliott, the ILGU bronze medal to Hilary McIlroy and the silver spoon to Wendy Elliott. The putting trophy was won by Jean Blair. Well done to all the prizewinners. 
The proceeds of the ballot which was over £360 will go to Ovarian Cancer Research at QUB. Thank you to everyone for supporting the ballot so generously and also to Alison Dawson and the Committee for providing such lovely prizes with a natural theme.
