Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies
The 2017 season is done and dusted, just as well as the days are getting rather warm.
The ladies played a 3 stick game for their last of the year.
Much thought was put into which sticks to take, one comment was heard - next year just take 3 wood, 8 and putter, so much for the sticks that are carried in the bags.
After golf the ladies enjoyed a lovely lunch, one visitor who was welcomed was Mary Williams a former president, it was beaut to see her there.
Mary was president in the water recycling era, and has kept an interest in our club.
After lunch the presentation of the year’s hard work was done to those who were lucky enough to play good golf.
The ladies of the Rutherglen Golf Club would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas, enjoy this time with family and friends, will see you all around the traps next year to do it all again - take care, Merry Christmas.
