Hole in One at The East Renfrewshire Christmas Turkey Trot and £560 Raised for the Glasgow Care Foundation

East Renfrewshire Ladies

The Ladies of East Renfrewshire held their Turkey Trot and Christmas lunch on Wednesday 11th December. Although the weather could only be described as frightful, 5 ladies set out to play 9 holes from the blue tees. Adding in a tee shot using the bendy driver made for a more enjoyable round that could have been hoped for.

The high spot of the morning was definitely a hole in one by Eileen Ferguson at the 13th.

Eileen has obviously settled well into playing at East Ren by also winning the longest drive with the bendy driver and being part of the winning team.
With at Tri-am score of 45 points the winning team was Eileen Ferguson, Vi Fraser and Janet Stevens.

The overall winner of the Turkey Trot with 21 points (BIH) was Vi Fraser.

The Christmas lunch was attended by 49 ladies plus one gentleman. Chris Steward (Chairman of the Glasgow Care Foundation) joined us to explain the work the charity does to alleviate some of the problems of poverty in Glasgow. The Ladies were delighted to be able to present Chris with a cheque for £560.

Before sitting down for lunch Janet challenged us to some left handed putting and indoor chipping. Perhaps some for practice is required.

A very tasty meal was enjoyed by everyone along with a quiz,some singing and a great deal of Christmas cheer.

Merry Christmas
