Mixed Open Greensomes

How lucky were we with the weather yesterday for our Mixed Open Greensomes !

27 couples took part, 12 of them Island pairings.  Numbers were up on last year - maybe we benefited from those visiting the area for the Solheim Cup.

It was nearly a clean sweep for King Jimmy Members - 

Scratch Winners: Moira Lumby & Tam McLaren 79 (beating the Joss's from Carnoustie on the bih, to retain their trophy)

Handicap Winners: Moira Chapman & Neil Fraser  65.6 (22.4) who also won the Lennon Trophy (Best Island Couple)

Runners-up:  Sheilah Mitchell (from Market Rasen GC) & Charlie Scrim 68.2 (13.8) bih.  Charlie really impressed his partner by holing his tee shot at the 15th !

3rd place:  Linda Gray & Gary Sievwright  68.2 (12.8)

Outing to Niddry Castle

It was a fun(?) and interesting day out at Niddry Castle's Tri-am.  From our bus driver Graham's expert boot-filling, Iris's melt in the mouth tablet,  the blind summits, the 40 or so lost balls, the welcome halfway cake table, the unexpected Volvo was certainly a day to remember๐Ÿ˜‰

After we had enjoyed a lovely meal, even though none of us figured in the prizelist (no surprise there), our King Jimmy winners on the day were Iris, Lesley & Moira L.

Thanks to Linda and Karen for organising the day - including the calorie free dessert !

Thanks to Fiona for making up the 'fun' Solheim Cup quiz and to Moira L for taking her car on the day.

Big question - who's Agnes going to arm-twist to return to Niddry to use the 4 Ball Voucher she won !!


Championship Finals Day

What a beautiful afternoon we had for our Ladies Finals Day.

In the Scratch Final Linda Gray, in her first time of trying, played Moira Lumby and came out on top after a very good game to win her first title at King James VI.

The Handicap title was a competition between Fiona Farquharson and Agnes Manattini with Fiona winning that one.

Nice to see lots of ladies out supporting our finalists too.

Congratulations to Linda and Fiona.

Friendly match v Strathmore 15th August

A team of 6 headed to Strathmore for the last friendly of 2019.  It was a lovely sunny day on the course with the Strathmore ladies and we all enjoyed our meal in the clubhouse after. Linda M/Iris and Pat/Dot lost their matches and  Michelle/Noreen drew. Thanks ladies.

Due to the difficulties experienced by Strathmore ladies in moving their golf gear over the railway bridge earlier in the year they decided that all future matches need to be played at Strathmore. 

Handicap League match v Muckhart

Our last Handicap League match this year was played on 14th August at Muckhart.  Although this match was rescheduled due to our struggling to put together a team we still could only manage 4 instead of 5 on the night. Talking of night we could hardly see the green by the time we made the 18th and fingers were crossed to stay on the fairway otherwise we probably would never have found the ball! We tried our best but only had one win out of the 5. Thanks to the team of Moira L, Liz and Michelle (can't mention myself).

Friendly match v Craigie Hill 7th July

The annual match for the Craigisle Trophy took place last Sunday, 7th July, this year at Craigie Hill.๐ŸŒ
There were two greensome matches each resulting in KJVI losing at the 13th hole.  So once again Craigie Hill retain the trophy.  ๐Ÿ†
Thanks to Linda M, Liz and Karen for trying their best (I was the other team member) Maybe next year on home turf?...

Handicap League v Alyth

We had a really friendly game with our opposition from Alyth on Saturday.  It was so friendly, we ended up drawing the match.  So far, that's one win, and two draws in the league - an improvement from last year !  Thanks to Karen, Agnes, Liz & Dot (can't really thank myself) for turning out for the game.
