Ladies-2016-Winter-Dinner

The Ladies’ Section recently held their annual Midwinter Dinner and this year a record 26 ladies attended.
Not only did they enjoy a delicious meal provided by husband and wife team John and Sarah-Ann of The Three Reasons, Largs, but they were able to acknowledge a remarkable golfing achievement.

In this the club’s 125th year, Aileen Donaldson celebrates her 50th. year as a full member during which time she has been Lady Champion no less than 12 times as well as having her name on most, if not all, of the other “major” trophies.
Captain Gillian Pollock paid tribute to her in an amusing, anecdote-filled speech and then presented a very surprised Aileen with champagne and a golden anniversary rose.

Pictured above are the lady members and in the front row from left to right Lady Captain Gillian with Aileen in the centre flanked by two of our “elder stateswomen” Charlotte Hay and Isabel Lightbody, whom we were delighted to welcome back for the evening.
