Fife County Ladies Golf Association started its centenary celebrations today (Sun 1st Feb) with a lunch at the Dean Park Hotel, Kirkcaldy. The event was attended by 134 past & present members of FCLGA, the Provost of Fife and representatives from SLGA, Midlothian, East Lothian and Stirling & Clackmannanshire.
The day started with a champagne reception and a chance to reminisce over an extensive display of old photographs. Guests then moved through to the Dining Room where the top tables were introduced by Master of Ceremonies, President Margaret Steele. Prior to lunch the past Champions were introduced by the Captain, Joan Blyth.
Grace was said by Vice-President, Beverley Brown. Following a delicious lunch, guests were upstanding to toast the Queen and Fife County. The loyal toast was proposed by the Provost of Fife, Councillor Frances Melville, a former Fife team member. The Vice-Captain, Christine Steedman, proposed a toast to Fife County and wished the Association continued prosperity in the next 100years.
