Ladies Winter League – Saturday 23rd February 2019

Well, I was too gloomy in my weather predictions in the last post. Yesterday we turned up to play golf in your actual sunshine. As a result, it was glorious.   Stripping down to only four layers, it was out with the sun hat, sun-glasses and sun block. After we'd prepared for the conditions, eight of us set off to contest this week's Winter League.   Modesty forbids me mentioning that only one of us made it all the way round blob-free. Similarly, I can't possible say who secured this week's top spot. Ahem. A mere three points off the…

Ladies February Medal *cancelled* Saturday 9th February 2019
Oh dear.

Ladies February Medal *cancelled* Saturday 9th February 2019

Well, the weather got to us all this week and the course was officially closed. This was due to a wee bit of flooding, casual, argh, New Rules <thinks>... "temporary" water and some rather impressive gusts of wind. Here's the traditional video of the flag on the 8th... And, for a bit of variety, here's the bell after the second green... Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed the temporary wee loch in the background on the practice hole. At last - we have a practice water hazard yellow penalty area! Though we were sad to postpone our Maximum Score medal, thanks to Chris,…

Ladies Winter League *** Snowed Off *** Saturday 2nd February 2019

The weather defeated even us hardy rural folks this week and we had to abandon the golf and settle for tea and biscuits instead (Kay don't worry - you didn't miss any cake!) An adventurous group set off for a walk round the course anyway just to get a wee bit of fresh air.                               Sadly, we were less well equipped than the local kids who have been having a rare old time on their sledges. The 9th and 1st fairways, in particular, looked like they…
