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 – 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…

Ladies May Medal – Wednesday 1st May
Stopped on the 9th green!

Ladies May Medal – Wednesday 1st May

Our first summer medal kicked off yesterday with a variety of wet weathers. Before tee off, we had some plain old rain. Then it held off for a bit to make it merely dank. It developed into a bit of smir. And then it rained again for a wee while.  Thankfully we never got to stair-rods. And a complete absence of wind meant it was fairly pleasant out there. So ten of us made it round for a lovely 18 holes in the increasingly lush conditions. Janette continued her good form with a stellar round. She achieved a well-deserved handicap…

Ladies Stableford Sweep Saturday 27th April
Caption Contest? No. We can't swear here.

Ladies Stableford Sweep Saturday 27th April

This week a break in the scorchio weather brought some welcome rain for our greens. In the village, the lightning strikes and hailstorm were a little less welcome. Seven golfers turned out in face of a fairly pessimistic forecast. It was actually dry and clear when we arrived. So we put the tin of chocolate chip cookies to one side and set off for our Stableford Sweep competition.   There was a large dose of be-careful-for-you-wish-for at the first. Somebody (i.e. me) managed to 4 putt on the very much slower green! Hey, at least I didn't putt off the…

Flowery springness

Ladies Scottish Golf R&A 9 hole challenge

It was another glorious sunny day on planet Dumfries & Galloway for our Scottish Golf R&A 9 hole challenge. This is the first time we've run this new-ish competition. It's a stableford pairs competition (adding together the pair's individual scores for the team result). Eight golfers set off in the fabulous sunshine to compete for the chance to represent the club at the national final in Perthshire. Annie definitely won the best trews competition. This picture teeing off up the 7th cannot do justice to their glorious Royal Stewartiness.   And while we're at the 7th, I should mention our…

Ladies – KO and 123 Social

Spring has well and truly sprung around the course and in our lovely flower tubs...           And we were blessed with yet another glorious day for a game of golf yesterday...   The first two matches from our individual knock out competition set out shortly before 10 getting the day's sport rolling.   Details on the KO matches are sadly lacking, but I can report that everyone was still on good terms in the clubhouse. Well done to both Elena and Erica who progressed to the next round. Commiserations to Kay and Chris who remain to…
