All prizes were donated by local businesses including David Lloyd, Sir Robert McAlpine ltd; J Bruce Andrew & Co; Complete Contracts; Greenlaw Garage; Thomas Moran; JM Taylor & Co; Roth; CBRE; and Andy Carlton.

Support from Scottish Water, Morrison’s and Thomas Colquhoun Fruiterer helped to provide refreshments.

Pamela Smith, committee member at Paisley Golf Club, said: “A big thank you must go to all our sponsors and to our club professional Andy Carlton who supplied the prizes many of which were official Gleneagles Ryder Cup merchandising.

“We are confident that no lady left our 2014 Open Day empty handed and everyone felt like a winner.”
