Handicap League Match at Alyth 21 June

Thursday saw a beautiful summer's evening at Alyth. For myself the longest day took on a whole new meaning as I explored some of the lesser seen areas of the course. Dot won her match but unfortunately the other 4 of us lost, although we all had a good time.  Thanks to Dot, Moira L, Michelle, Agnes and Pat for taking part.  We look forward to doing better in the return match next year.

Ladies Open Tri-am Sun 17 Jun

Another successful Ladies Tri-am was held at King Jimmy's yesterday! 

Thankfully the weather stayed dry, just maybe not as warm as we've been used to recently.

The Lady Captain's team were the leaders in the clubhouse for some time (they were out first !).........until the last few of the 12 teams came in !

Congratulations to Agnes Manattini, Donna Nixon & Moira Aitken (Dunning) who came out on top with a score of 129, followed by Dorothy Whytock, Diana Alston & Jean Jasper (both Murrayshall) on 138, and in 3rd place Michelle McKay, Sheena Scott & Sandra Barber (both Strathmore) on 140.

Nearest the Pin was won by Karen Brodie, and Straightest Drive won by Donna Nixon.

Thanks go to all who supported the event including some new visitors from Strathmore, Royal Musselburgh, Swanston, Strathaven & Pumpherston golf clubs.  Hopefully we'll see them again next year.  

Thank to those who donated raffle prizes and bought raffle tickets. One of our visitors, Linda Allan from Strathaven, won the golf carry-bag and told me it was exactly what she needed - not often you're lucky enough to get something from a raffle that you actually want/need ! Mind you, she probably hadn't expected to come over with one bag and have to carry two back😅  

Thanks also to the greens staff, bar/catering staff, the Junior and his 'not-so junior' assistants (!) for helping ladies with their clubs & Moira C. for her floral decorations. 

All-in-all, a good day was had by all👍

Murrayshall Handicap League Match

Sunday afternoon's match ended with a 3-2 home win to us.  On the day Murrayshall were only able to bring 4 ladies so Liz was able to rest her knee rather than play.  Karen and Pat won their matches while Dot and Alison lost, but the overall result was a success for us. The weather held yet again and the day was enjoyed by all. Thank you team!

Friendly Match v Alyth Ladies

The sun shone on Thur, but sadly we didn't. Fiona and Donna blasted their way to glory while Michelle and Iris narrowly lost on the 18th.  Agnes and Pat lost an earlier lead and had to accept defeat. Thanks to all who participated and better luck next time!
