Shiskine Golf Club

Shiskine Golf Club ladies section had another fantastic, sunny, wind free day for Pink Day on Thursday September 24 to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research. With the Covid rules we were unable to hold a raffle, so I decided to wave the entry fee and have donations only. This year’s outfits varied from Rara skirts to onesies, all wee stunners!

1st Sheila Gray, Ruth Hardy, and Yvonne Brothers BIH; 2nd Fiona Henderson, Jenni Turnbull, and Jessie Hutton; 3rd  Fiona Scott, Shelagh Rae, and Pat Adamson: 4th Isobel McDonald, Esther Henderson and Jerry Arthur.

All the players and some members who were unable to attend donated raffle prizes and money. Enormous thanks to all the participants for being there,  to James Chocolates for our prizes, to Shiskine tearoom staff and the greenkeepers of their hard work. Between us we raised £443.45, just over £100 more than last year. this was quite unexpected in the circumstances.

Sunday September 27, The Cooper Angus par 3 competition. It is some time now since the Cooper Angus caravan park sponsored this competition but owner Jim Meehan left us a beautiful trophy to play for and the September weekend weather did its bit by providing a beautiful crisp morning to play it on. The ‘par 3’ is always a fun day with some intriguing hole layouts and  a good number turned out for the 2020 edition. Continuing his fine run of recent form, the winner  was John Pennycott with a net 49.
1 John Pennycott (12) – 49, 2 Nicol Auld (4) – 51 & 1/3, 3 Scott Adair (5)- 51 & 2/3
