Ladies February Medal *cancelled* Saturday 9th February 2019

Well, the weather got to us all this week and the course was officially closed. This was due to a wee bit of flooding, casual, argh, New Rules <thinks>... "temporary" water and some rather impressive gusts of wind. Here's the traditional video of the flag on the 8th... And, for a bit of variety, here's the bell after the second green... Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed the temporary wee loch in the background on the practice hole. At last - we have a practice water hazard yellow penalty area! Though we were sad to postpone our Maximum Score medal, thanks to Chris,…

Ladies Winter League *** Snowed Off *** Saturday 2nd February 2019

The weather defeated even us hardy rural folks this week and we had to abandon the golf and settle for tea and biscuits instead (Kay don't worry - you didn't miss any cake!) An adventurous group set off for a walk round the course anyway just to get a wee bit of fresh air.                               Sadly, we were less well equipped than the local kids who have been having a rare old time on their sledges. The 9th and 1st fairways, in particular, looked like they…

Ladies Winter League – Saturday 26th January 2019

Despite a less-than-ideal forecast, seven hardy ladies set forth for this week's Winter League match. Although the wind was a bit blustery, at least we were snow-free... True to forecast the rain stayed away till noon, so we made it most of the way round before it started properly. Nobody managed a blob-free round in the blustery winds. Though it wasn't as horrific as this photo of the 8th green suggests... Coincidentally (or because I always mis-hit the approach shot - you choose), I found myself on practically the same spot on the 3rd mound as last week... ...and normal…

UPDATED: Ladies – Skins Match Saturday 19th January 2019

A light smattering of snow on the shaded parts of the course was enough to put paid to this week's planned Winter League fixture. Instead, six intrepid souls set off for a 'tee to green/no putting' 9 holes skins match.         Competition was fierce, as was the sledging (the cricketing type not the downhill tobogganing type). Playing in pairs, we halved the first. Gill & Marena snaffled the 2nd and 3rd (thanks to a skilful flukey chip in off the mound on the 3rd by yours truly). Janette & Elena won the next (Elena being the only…

Ladies January Medal – Saturday 12th January 2019

Well, the wind came back with a wee bit of vengeance this week! Conditions were fairly testing in the stiff breeze...   There was a great win for Marena McClymont in the first medal of the New Year. She finished four points clear of the chasing field to take the honours. Erica Porteous scored a great 2 on the 13th in the fairly blustery conditions. Well done everyone who competed in the breeze!

Ladies Winter League – Saturday 5th January 2019

Welcome to 2019! In the first Winter League of the New Year, there was a great turnout and a fine victory for Erica Porteous. Despite the lack of wind, conditions were tough - there were no 2's and nobody managed a blob-free round. The view down Loch Ken was a wee bit cloudy...   Playing with a newly-reduced handicap, Erica won by four points in a field of 11 golfers. Well done Erica, a great start to your golfing year! As a special New Year treat, after lunch we had a presentation on the new rules for 2019. Everyone is now…
