The final winter squad event was our annual friendly match v Borders County. The match was reduced to three foursomes matches played off handicap since Mother’s Day was a popular competing event!.  The match was played at Torwoodlee in glorious spring sunshine and as Kay and Lauren demonstrate cut offs and polo shirts were to the fore.

Borders welcomed us with soup and sandwiches before the match and Tea and a wonderful spread of cakes and meringues after the match. Both the match and the cakes were enjoyed by all.  Sadly we lost the match 2-1.

Julie Birdsall & oral O’Leary beat Lauren Lee & Kay Lannin

Fiona Kerr & Marnie Waddell lost to Susan Penman & Dianne Brown

Alison Smith & Gillian Lithgow beat Mhairi Tufail & Sharon Lynch

70 Ladies enjoyed an excellent lunch hosted by Kilspindie Golf Club, the food and service were both excellent.  The Speaker Ian Malcolm  gave us an interesting talk on the area around the golf course, mentioning the caves under the fairways and the harbour that used to be in the bay.  It was fascinating. We were pleased to be able to wish the Ladies of Kilspindie all the best in their  150 year celebrations and all the members a happy golfing season.
