Congratulations to all the ladies who are Champions of their clubs. I’ll just take a moment to tell you a little about some individual achievements this year-
Sandra Littlejohn has taken over as Results Secretary and after a few tutorials from Carol Fell and Freda Tuck, she has been amazing. Carol McNally our new Honorary Secretary has also been thrown in at the deep end and seems to be enjoying the role as well as being super efficient.
Our committee members for 2016/ 2017 are Fiona Armour (Renfrew), Linda Ellery (East Renfrewshire) -- And new to committee- Sandra MacDougall (Greenock), Liz Stewart (Greenburn) and Marilyn Muir (Old Ranfurly) .
Gillian then asked the members to decide their preference for winning a spoon, a paperweight, a glass or gift card as a medal prize by slotting a pink counter into the appropriate box. Also she asked everyone to take back a poster to their home club to advertise how good it is to join the County.
Maureen Mitchell from Old Ranfurly then gave an update into Course Rating within Renfrewshire. 9 courses have been rated this year and Renfrewshire is up to date. Each course has to be rated every 8-10 years and more volunteers are needed to keep it all under control. Marilyn Muir form Old Ranfurly has joined the team READ MORE AT SCOTTISH GOLF

"On another beautiful Autumn day (yesterday 25th October), Lorna Howie and Morag Little (Whitecraigs) played the Winter Foursomes tie against Anita McMillan (Erskine) and Morag Key (Ralston) at Ralston G.C
Lorna and Morag played some very tidy golf and putted well on Ralston's slick greens, while Anita and Morag were suffering from that terrible affliction called "Bunkeritis"! Lorna and Morag were the worthy winners by 5&4
A most enjoyable day and great company.

|A "Selfie" Gill Unick, Carol McNally, Lorna Boyd and Linda Ellery|
Gill and Carol had a solid start and quickly took a 2 up lead. Next few holes were halved and then Gill and Carol stretched their lead. The home girls rallied mid round, however good fortune and putting favoured the visiting pair. The course; the weather; the views and the company were fabulous, a true testament as to why County golf is a wonderful institution to be part of.
Thanks go to Carol for the report and Linda for the Selfie

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.
Thanks go to RLCGA Secretary Carol for all the news and photos
England are on course to complete a hat-trick of title wins in the Senior Women's Home Internationals at Alyth Golf Club, Perthshire.
They came from behind with a classy display in the singles to beat Scotland 6-2.
In wet conditions, the Scots looked on their way to an upset victory when they led 2-1 after the foursomes but it was almost one-way traffic in England's favour as they took the singles 4.5-0.5.
