Lennox Herald - - THE BACK PAGE -

It was evening worth cel­e­brat­ing for the ladies mem­bers at both Dum­bar­ton and Vale of Leven Golf Club as they gath­ered to mark a mile­stone anniversary last week.

Mem­bers of both clubs joined to­gether to cel­e­brate the 50th anniversary of the Rock­vale Shield - a com­pe­ti­tion which has be­come a tra­di­tion be­tween the clubs for half a cen­tury since it be­gan in 1967.

Golfers of all ages meet twice a year to play in the friendly tour­na­ment, and Vale lady cap­tain Mary Mackle and Dum­bar­ton lady cap­tain Ge­orgina Cole­man were deighted to have mem­bers gather for the cel­e­bra­tion on Septem­ber 29.

Ge­orgina said: “It was lovely to see, past, present and most im­por­tantly fu­ture gen­er­a­tions that will keep this lovely Rock­vale Shield alive.

“We had peo­ple of all ages come along and it’s a lovely feel­ing that we’ve had a friendly against Vale of Leven Golf Club for 50 years and it’s set to con­tinue for the un­fore­see­able fu­ture.”
