A team of six ladies from Ross Golf Club qualified to play in a charity event for the On Course Foundation over two days at the prestigious Trump Turnberry Golf Complex.

The On Course Foundation is a charity which provides invaluable physical and psychological rehabilitation through golf. This annual event is an important fund raiser 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 October 20th followed by a further stableford competition on the renowned championship Ailsa Course on Monday 21st.

The Ross team came overall fourth in the combined day’s 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. The Autumn Meeting and round two of the Josie Powell Cup was held on October 15th and was won by Katie Stooke with 38 points. Denise Laird came second with 33 points and Sally Fycun came third with 32 points. See the full story in this week’s edition of the Ross Gazette, or subscribe to our online edition here
