The McRyder Cup  - Top - the teams
Bottom Past RLCGA secretary Jean Irvine (East !) v RLCGA secretary Carol McNally (West)
and Paul Laurie with Carol

The team photos are of The McRyder Cup.  This is the West of Scotland Ladies (Williamwood) playing The East of Scotland Ladies (Ratho Park).  We play match play team of 12 in foursomes; greensomes and fourballs.  Our inaugural year was 2014 owing to The Ryder Cup being at Gleneagles.  Williamwood hosted that year and won.  Unlike, it's Big Brother The Ryder Cup, The McRyder Cup is played every year.  Therefore, year 2015 was hosted by Ratho Park and Williamwood again won.

Yesterday, 27th September, the event returned to Williamwood, who again won, 8-4.  Owing to holidays, Ratho were unable to field a full team, therefore, Ringers Jean Irvine and Marion Munro of Ranfurly Castle stepped up to the challenge of playing for The East of Scotland. What a great day and a fantastic tournament which is now a permanent fixture in the diaries.


The Ryder Cup Vice Captain Paul Laurie photo was taken at The Carrick at Loch Lomond which Carol  recently played at.

SHIRLEY IS THE ROSEBOWL CHAMPION FOR 2016

Shirley Back -- 2016 RLCGA Rosebowl Champion
Shirley Back (Gleddoch) and Marion Stewart (Kilmacolm) had a very good battle at East Renfrewshire Golf Club this evening in the final of the Rosebowl. The overhead conditions were perfect and the course in very good condition despite heavy rain earlier in the week.
Marion was getting 6 shots and went 1up after the long par 4 3rd then 2 up after the long par 3 7th as Shirley could not match her net pars. 
Shirley got 1 back at the 9th after Marion found a nasty position in the bunker. The scoring on the front 9 was excellent-Shirley out in 4 over par and Marion only 6 over!
 Marion got back to 2 up after net pars at 10 and 11 but a spell of poor chipping from her and par golf from Shirley, let Shirley go square at the 13th. 
Shirley then found a very firm bunker at the 15th and had to concede the hole. Marion unfortunately found 2 bunkers at the 16th and had to concede that hole! 
So all square with 2 to go. Marion then had a meltdown-drove into the burn at 17 and didn't  get on with her 4th shot so conceded the hole as Shirley was nicely on the green. 
Another poor drive from Marion found thick rough then her 3rd shot rolled into the burn, making the 18th extra long and with Shirley near the green in 2, Marion admitted defeat allowing Shirley to win the match 2up.

Our thanks go to the caddies Isabell Donnelly and Morag Key for making it a special occasion and to East Renfrewshire for giving us courtesy of the course.

Thanks go to Captain Gillian Kyle for the report and photographs

CAMPBELL CLOCK HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

It with regret that the Committee have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2016 Campbell Clock which was due to be played this Sunday at Whitecraigs Golf Club. Numbers have been dwindling over the last couple of days due to the girls having so many other commitments and there would have been more helpers than players! Hopefully we will have some winter activities to get them all together so if you have ANY girls at your club-with or without a handicap-please let a member of the Committee know.
