A TEAM of ladies from Ross Golf Club qualified to play over two days at the prestigious Trump Turnberry Golf Complex on the west coast of Scotland.

The On Course Foundation is a charity which provides invaluable physical and psychological rehabilitation through golf.

This annual event is an important fundraiser for them, whilst giving players from any clubs around the UK and abroad, the opportunity to qualify to play on such prestigious courses.

The ladies played a stableford competition on the Robert the Bruce Course on Sunday followed by a further stableford competition on the renowned championship Ailsa Course the following day.

The Ross team came fourth overall in the combined days' competitions and Lady Captain Sally Lawrence won the nearest the pin prize on the first day.

Gala dinners were held each night with raffle draws and auctions to raise funds for the charity.

Members of the armed services spoke very movingly about what golf and the support of the charity had meant to them after experiencing horrific physical injuries and in many cases long term psychological trauma.

Even the notoriously unpredictable weather cooperated and benign conditions prevailed, making it an experience not to be forgotten.

Earlier this month the Taylor Cup and October medal was won by Marie-anne Belton with 75 on countback.

Jenny Freel was a close second with 75 and June Punnet came third with 76.

The Ladies 9 Hole Competition was won by Jennifer Reeve Tucker with 16 points. Jennifer Thornton came second with 15 points and Ellie Peake came third with 14 points.

The Autumn meeting and round two of the Josie Powell Cup was also held earlier this month and Katie Stooke prevailed with 38 points.

Denise Laird came second with 33 points and Sally Fycun came third with 32 points.

The best gross score in the silver division was Kerry Welding with 87, in the bronze division was Jenny Freel with 102 and the higher handicap bronze winner was Wendy Ancrum with 125.

Jenny Dryden won nearest the pin on the 7th hole.
