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…

Glenkens Salver – Open Greensomes Saturday 13th April 2019

We had a great turnout for our 2019 Glenkens Salver Opens Greensomes. Players jetted in from as far afield as Stranraer and Glasgow to join in the fun. Sadly, last year's victors were unavailable to defend their title, leaving a field of 20 pairs to contest the honours. It was glorious, dazzling and bright. And that was just my trousers. Fortunately, the sun was also shining magnificently. But the chilly gusts meant a few layers were still sorely needed. Especially by those who'd abandoned their thermals in a fit of foolish optimism (guilty as charged).   An unseasonably long spell…

Ladies April Medal – Saturday 6th April 2019

Another medal this week. They certainly come thick and fast at this time of year. A beautiful, clear sunny day for our second maximum score medal. We liked it so much, we ran it again. And it didn't even rain! We also had some 9 hole participants this time. So 10 of us set out for 18 holes and 2 went for the 9 hole option.   With all the fine weather, the greens have sped up a fair bit since last week. This made for some interesting putting (this is my excuse and I'm sticking to it). Others had…

Ladies Charity Cup – Saturday 30th March 2019

After the excitement of the Winter League, we're warming up for the new season with our annual Charity Cup. This year in aid of the British Heart Foundation ❤️ A field of 8 contested the honours today and the weather was kind to us again (only a few minutes of light rain).   Nobody managed to stay blob-free all the way round. But honourable mentions are due to both Erica who scored all the way round the front 8 and Elena who scored on all of the back 7 (and only had one slip up on the way out).  …

Ladies March Medal – Saturday 23rd March 2019

Praise be! Today we managed to hold our first Maximum Score medal. In cold but clear conditions, ten adventurous golfers tried out golf's newest format. I've not had full feedback yet as I had to skip lunch. This was devastating as there appeared to be a rather delicious-looking chocolate cake in the kitchen. Sniff. But back to the golf and it appeared that we all survived the inaugural maximum score medal fairly unscathed. I certainly felt a wee bit less terrified than during the usual stroke play medal. Despite the forecast being for NO RAIN (can you hear me, weather?),…

Curse of max score strikes again- Saturday 9th March 2019

We had planned a Maximum Score medal, but nobody told the weather. I'm starting to suspect it is a jinxed format. Despite the heavy overnight rain, the course was declared playable. But the rain/sleet was so heavy we agreed to postpone the medal until better weather. This would be anything less than torrential rain. We're not princesses. We settled down with a cuppa and yummy chocolate fudge traybake (thanks Erica). After a short while, to our surprise, it cleared up enough for a social 9 holes. Eight of us set off and it proved glorious. The rain cleared, the wind…

Ladies Winter League – Saturday 2nd March 2019

Teeing off briskly to stay ahead of Storm Freya, ten of us contested the latest Winter League fixture.   The wind became progressively more blustery as we played round the top of the course. Then the rain arrived within an impressive 7 minutes of the forecast time. Conditions got a wee bit more tricky. Hard to believe that, because of the sunshine, I played in only a T-shirt on Tuesday afternoon. Well not quite 'only' but you know what I mean. In the gusts, scores were harder to come by than last week. Nobody quite managed to stay blob-free (certainly…

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 Winter League – Saturday 16th February 2019 & Not the Xmas Lunch

At last the weather was kind to us today. Gloriously overcast and with hardly any rain, it was a successful Winter League match to set us up for Not The Xmas Lunch.   There was a fine victory for Chris in the Winter League - a long-expected first prize after a steady collection of 2nd and 3rd places in this season's competition.   There was another 2's glory for Kay at the 4th (her second in as many months). This helped her secure 2nd place on the day. Chris & Kay are now joint 3rd in the Winter League [edit:…
