An impressive twenty-six Past Captains were photographed with in-coming Capyain, Lesley Duncan, including Betty Ramsay who was Captain in 1964 (front row 3rd from left).
The evening was rounded off when members were treated to a trip down memory lane by Past Captains Nan Rogerson, Evelyn Auld and Eila MacLennan, who entertained everyone with their favourite memories of former Lady Members, many of whom donated trophies to the Ladies Club as well as reflecting on how things were in past decades for Lady Members of the Club. Lasting friendships have been formed over many decades and all agreed that new Lady Members receive a warm welcome at the club.
Everyone felt fortunate indeed not only to be offered equality and full membership in the current year, but also to be all sitting in the Ossington Lounge, which apparently was out of bounds for Ladies unless accompanied by a Gentlemen Member in days gone by!
The year ahead promises to open an exciting new chapter in the history of the Club and in paraphrasing from the Jubilee Book, Lady Captain Lesley brought the evening to a close by mentioning the 125th anniversary of the club in 2012 and saying that long may the Ladies at Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Club continue to enjoy the “swing music of the links!”
