Ladies Winter League – cake-less :-0

Due to AGM responsibilities (plus a broken oven on my part) we appeared to be sadly bereft of home-made cakes this week. This means I have no choice but to talk solely about golf. Sorry about that. So nine Winter Leaguers set off in fairly nippy conditions in what appeared to be a  Michelin Man look-a-like competition. It *was* dry though so there was something to celebrate.   In our group, Marena and I sprinted out of the blocks with the best starts of the day...two three pointers. Marena's great start was thanks to a stunning chip in on the…

Ladies – Nov Medal & Ginger Sour Cream Cake

There was a smirry start to our Max Score Medal today but the leaves were displaying beautiful autumn colours.   Two groups set off for the November Medal.                 Looking at the scorecards, there were a few nice scores today... Two golfers (Elizabeth and Marena) played the front 9 in net 32 - terrific play in the slightly soggy conditions. We all struggled a wee bit more on the back 9 but another two golfers (Elizabeth and me) managed to come home in net 36. So looking at those two halves... you'll have…

Ladies Winter League & Marmalade Cake

[Disclaimer: it has been a few days since this competition so fingers-crossed my memory stands up to the test...] In the run up to Hallowe'en, New Ghouloway Golf club didn't have the most promising of starts weather-wise for this week's Winter League fixture:   Undaunted, eight of us marched off up and away (mainly to try to get some blood flowing to our numb extremities)...     As the sun burnt through, we reverted to the usual stunning views...     And the views from the 7th green never disappoint...   And on the flora front...down by the path to…

Ladies Winter League & Snowballs

  Nine of us turned out for Super Saturday Winter League yesterday only to be greeted by some fairly heavy wet stuff emanating from the sky. Taking our inspiration from Westminster, we opted to delay our final decision whether or not to take back control of our golf by leaving the clubhouse. Instead we settled down for tea and cake and some deliberations. It turned out to be a wise decision because the rain had stopped by the time we finished. Newly refreshed, we drew for groups and set off for a 9 hole Winter League. I smacked a nice…

Ladies – Oct Medal

  A lovely, bright day dawned for the October medal. Nine ladies gathered and set off into the brightness...   The course played a bit easier (I missed that memo) and CSS was -1. The second group focussing on the putt and not the view...         Two-thirds of the second group pausing on 5th for piccie...   When the scorecards were tallied, the winner today was Erica with a terrific 67. Fabulous round! Following closely behind was Marena on 70 and Annie on 73. Nicely done. For individual mentions in dispatches: we had no 2's today but…

Ladies Omni-update (including Balmaclellan Quiz)

Pull up a chair and a drink...plenty of news to update since we last chatted:   Sat 21st Sep: Medal Final   Beautiful weather for the Medal Final. Six competitors headed out for a lovely round - though conditions proved tricky enough for it to become reduction-only. We also introduced preferred lies as conditions were a little damp underfoot. No twos were recorded. Scores on the doors were: 1st Janette 76 2nd Erica 79 3rd Jackie 80 (on count back from Marena over last 9 holes)   Well done everyone!   Sadly, to overcome the shame over my performance  I…

Fri 4th Oct: Men’s Shed Golf Fun Day!

Luckily all the dreadful forecasts came to naught. The weather was positively clement for our first ever (hopefully not the last?) Glenkens Men's Shed Greensomes. We had a grand turnout of 12 reckless entrants for the golf and several more for the putting. Ready to go, we paired up in beginner/golfer pairs and set off for some fun! Divots flew from the start (sorry green-keepers!) We headed up the hill for 9 holes of top entertainment. Our group raced round fairly quickly considering we'd only 6 actual, human hips between us.           Lovely shot into the…

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.  Teeing 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…
