Ladies Update – Sanderson Cup 17th July 2019
Up for grabs today...the Sanderson Cup

Ladies Update – Sanderson Cup 17th July 2019

A bumper turnout for the third and final competition in our Club Championship qualifiers - the Sanderson Cup. It's also rather a nice trophy in its own right.   Eleven golfers defied the gloomy forecast and set out to do battle with themselves the course. On a deadline, I scooted out in the first pair with Marena. This is the third time we've played together in a week. People will talk. Predictably, neither of us quite recaptured the giddy form of last week. But we had a lovely time and didn't get too wet when it started to rain (two…

Ladies Update – July Medal 10th July 2019

Our numbers were depleted by holidays this week - and perhaps the awful forecast. Despite the mugginess, it remained dry and 6 intrepid Smidge-covered golfers entered our July Medal. Run again as a Maximum Score Medal for maximum pleasure and minimum stress. We do this for fun, right? A strong start for the first group (Gill, Marena and Linda) with all three of us carding 4's (your actual par) at the first. Here we all are on the green at the 7th...but not all from our drives sadly.   In fact, there wasn't a single 2 this week, so all…

The No-Expense-Spent NGGC Stringball Trophy

Ladies Update 3rd July 2019

In the glorious sunshine today, Lady Captain, Lady Vice and guests played a stringball competition at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club. There were a few lost balls, some lost scissors and much merriment as we played our way round. Unusually, we had to deal with bunkers and water - though our bits of string helped us out on more than one occasion. Making best use of her allocated string was Janette who triumphed as overall winner. She looks surprisingly delighted with her golden string trophy.     Runner up was Kay, who looks slightly less delighted with her prize.  …

Ladies Update – 26th June 2019

This Wednesday brought the annual bogey competition - the Shipley Trophy. A lovely sunny day again in the Glenkens and eleven masochists set out for the harsh format (effectively you play against yourself on a good day).   I had the pleasure of playing with a new member Alison for the first time and Lady Captain. Now I know that Alison likes to take selfies the first time she plays with you...take heed! :-)   We had a lovely time and surrounded the flag on a number of occasions...   The positive vibes in our group helped the golf along…

Captain’s Day – Ladies’ Scores

It was a lovely sunny day for golf and the weather was matched by some fine scoring. In the end it was a narrow victory for Janette. She wins with the top score of 38 points. She was matched by Marena and needed countback to secure the top spot. Running them both very close was Fiona who finished with a great score of 37 points. Special mention also goes to Erica who managed the only (Ladies) two of the day at the 4th. Well done everybody. It can't have been easy in the blazing sunshine.

Ladies Update 22nd June 2019

June Medal 5th June 2019 A tightly-fought victory for Marena over Janette on countback (both scored 70) with Elena hot on their heels one stroke behind. There were two twos: Marena at the 4th and Annie at the 13th. McEwan Cup 12th June 2019 A fine victory for Elena with a round of 70. Winning by 1 stroke ahead of Erica, with Marena chasing in third place a couple of strokes further behind. Nobody managed a two in this competition. Harebell Trophy (first round) 19th June 2019 Continuing her great form, it was another victory for Elena this week. She…

Ladies – Extra May Medal
"Och, that's baa-aad"

Ladies – Extra May Medal

  A select group went out in the drizzle this morning for a cheeky wee 9 hole medal. Conditions were slower than in previous weeks. But that wasn't always a help. Even the spectating sheep wandered off in disgust as I effectively 5 putted the 3rd. Sigh.   In the other group, Anne was having a stellar day. Apparently her putter could do no wrong. On the 4th, she hit a glorious pitch down to within 4 feet of the pin. She managed to steady her knocking knees long enough to slot the putt in the hole for a glorious two.…

Ladies Outing – Eden
Well-earned feast just about to arrive.

Ladies Outing – Eden

A bright and early start on Tuesday to travel to Carlisle for our away day to Eden Golf Club. Very lovely it was too.   We had 4 groups of adventurous golfers...         We had a lovely 18 hole stableford in the sun. The course had bunkers (!), water (!!) and absolutely no gorse (swoon!)...   Treating myself to some new Calloways for the outing, I managed to lose 2 before even reaching the first green! Glad I did a quick revision on water hazards, sorry, red penalty areas, before we set off. An impressive performance from…

Ladies May Burkinshaw Putter

Another day, another McScorcher.   Today's competition was stroke play plus putts. So a great day to  chip short or long! A number of great scores were returned despite the blinding sun and the odd gust of wind to keep us on our toes. Moving swiftly over my score (which resembled a basketball match after over-time) let me tell you about my playing partners. They had quite a few superb drives - both drove past the 8th ditch...     A spectacularly placed drive on the 12th...   As we were the last group out, I didn't get the chance to…

Ladies Wass Cup
8th hole. Bluebells again...

Ladies Wass Cup

  Despite a visit from some fairly messy visitors earlier in the week, the course had been tidied up a treat for our Wass Cup on Wednesday (thanks groundskeepers!) Four groups headed out in the dampest course conditions we've had in a while. Shots were actually rolling to a halt *before* greens rather than shooting straight through. As well as the honours for the best net score, this was the first round (of three) qualifiers for the Club Championship. Honours went to Marena on both counts with a terrific round of 68. A mere seven strokes ahead of the nearest…
