Ladies Winter League – Saturday 26th January 2019

Despite a less-than-ideal forecast, seven hardy ladies set forth for this week's Winter League match. Although the wind was a bit blustery, at least we were snow-free... True to forecast the rain stayed away till noon, so we made it most of the way round before it started properly. Nobody managed a blob-free round in the blustery winds. Though it wasn't as horrific as this photo of the 8th green suggests...

UPDATED: Ladies – Skins Match Saturday 19th January 2019

A light smattering of snow on the shaded parts of the course was enough to put paid to this week's planned Winter League fixture.

Ladies Winter League – Saturday 5th January 2019

Welcome to 2019! In the first Winter League of the New Year, there was a great turnout and a fine victory for Erica Porteous. Despite the lack of wind, conditions were tough - there were no 2's and nobody managed a blob-free round. The view down Loch Ken was a wee bit cloudy...   Playing with a newly-reduced handicap, Erica won by four points in a field of 11 golfers. Well done Erica, a great start to your golfing year! As a special New Year treat, after lunch we had a presentation on the new rules for 2019. Everyone is now…
