June was a busy month for Bute lady golfers. Despite the mostly good weather, scores were not always as low as expected.

The June Medal and Golf Foundation Brooch were won by Jean Lyon with a nett 75 (34).

There was a good turnout for the popular Two Club and Putter competition, played over nine holes, for the Foote Trophy which was also won by Jean Lyon with a nett 40, one stroke ahead of Elizabeth Speirs.

Four ladies took part in the Millennium Trophy, which is open to the ladies of all three island clubs and hosted this year by Rothesay. Anna McComb won the Straightest Drive prize.

After the match, a lovely supper was enjoyed in Rothesay Clubhouse.

On June 18, the ladies had their Annual Outing to play for the McAlister Cup. This year they went to Taynuilt, where they were warmly welcomed by the members and enjoyed playing on the manicured nine-hole course. The weather was equally kind to us – hot and sunny. Elizabeth Speirs won the trophy with a nett 33, one stroke over par, and runner-up was Liz Archibald two strokes behind.

Margaret Rooney won the nine-hole Stableford completion on June 21, and Elizabeth Speirs won the medal played on the same day, just pipping Elaine Thom by 1 stroke.

The final match of the month was a nine-hole Stableford, won by Elizabeth Speirs, runner-up Jean Lyon.
