Ladies Update – Chocfest 2019

Known officially as "Kay's Hike" - it's all about the lovely Swiss chocolate. It's so delicious that all ten of us climbed all the way up to the former men's first green to fill our faces. Yum.   Designated a par 5 for the day, a respectable amount of the field gathered from points here today. Anne and Erica topped the pack with 2 points each. Well done everyone who scored here! Our group had a nice chip off at the 6th...     We also found some more scary mushrooms...   Today's view of the loch...   Back at…

Ladies Update – Centenary Cup

The Centenary Cup (aka 3 clubs and a putter) yesterday saw 6 intrepid golfers head out into the dazzling sunshine with - wait for it - only three clubs and a putter in their bag. Having trusted my club selection to a random hands-behind-the-back selection in the car park - I was lined up and ready with a 4 rescue, 7 iron, pitching wedge and putter. Most people had some combination of favourite long club, a medium iron and a wedge. Though Kay, being iron-phobic, probably had 4 woods. It got fairly gusty half way round, but conditions were dry…

Ladies Update – Circle 3 aka “Pigs in Mud”

It was back to the sunblock and sun-hat for circle week 3. I must admit the hat was strapped on front and back to cope with the gusts though! Seven ladies ventured out this morning in a daring, and somewhat controversial, permutation: a three ball and a four ball. ┬áTeeing off into the dazzling sun on the 2nd Erica, Christine and I set off first. After warming up on the first couple of holes we all got into our groove for a successful third hole. Christine had a great net par here- by common consent the hardest hole on the…

Ladies Update- September Medal

What a day of sport...   Though I'm confused by a 'sport' where you let all your team-mates do the hard work so you can sprint over the line? Anyway, back to the true sport of Gods... We had two flavours of medal today- 9 hole and 18 hole. And seven lovely ladies turned out to make the most of the glorious weather.   The course played a wee bit tricky in the sun with conditions a bit muddy in places and preferred lies not yet available. Nobody managed a two - so the jackpot is now visible from the…

Ladies Update – Circle 2

Yesterday we contested Circle week 2. Not to be confused with Dante's Circles. Though I understand that after the first circle of limbo, the second circle is where the punishments begin properly. The travellers are blown violently back and forth by strong winds, preventing them from finding peace and rest. Hmmmm, wherever did Dante get his inspiration? I wasn't aware he'd golfed in Scotland.     The weather had indeed blown itself up into a bit of a hooley. There were some exciting, swirling gusts and a fair amount of rain for our journey round the course. Fortunately, with only…
