Cuthbertson Cup

The morning saw us go down to a very strong Fife team. Although we were down on most matches for most of the time the girls fought extremely hard with most matches finishing on the 17th. In the afternoon we faced East Lothian who lost on count back to S & C.

In the afternoon we faced East Lothian and although we fought to the last we lost 1/2 to 11/2 each game going to the 18th.   Carys and Eilidh played first followed by Alex and Sam.  Both pairs fought   hard but failed to conquer the eighteenth hole to clinch each match - the first pair getting a half whilst the second pair lost one down.  The girls showed great determination and tenacity fighting to the last.
Fife went on to win the trophy in a convincing manner.

Thanks to Carys, Alex, Sam and especially Eilidh who captained the team well.

MCLGA Squad Friendlies

Our preparations for the 2017 season started in earnest on Sunday 19th March when the squad went to play Borders Ladies in a friendly match at Peebles Golf Club.  Despite heavy rain at the start and a course that was extremely wet underfoot the day proved worthwhile.  As there was a large difference in handicaps and we gave 6,9 & 7 strokes we were unlucky to go down 2:1.

Hannah Scott & Karen Ferguson-Snedden    won 1 up
Caroline Steedman & Eilidh Crawford          lost 2/1
Emma Morrison & Kate Rorke                      lost 1 down

Juniors – playing foursomes with handicap
Well done to Amy and Lauren who fought from 4 down for a well deserved draw
Amy Foster & Lauren Reid

Weather wise, Sunday 26th March was the complete opposite at Lanarkshire Golf Club – the sun shone all day and the course was dry. This time we fielded four couples with the matches being played to scratch and we won 2.5 – 1.5. 

Louise Fraser & Alison McBride                         won 6/5
Karen Marshall & Karen Ferguson-Snedden    won 5/4
Eilidh Crawford & Kate Rorke                             lost 6/5
Wendy Nicholson & Caroline Steedman           halved

Juniors – playing foursomes with handicap
Georgia Ledingham & Lucy Morrison            lost 5/3

A Good Day out at Kingsfield

Players from the MCLGA Squad teamed up with the Development Squad to play in a 4 Ball Better Ball Stableford at Kingsfield on Sunday 19th February.
The weather was fine for a February day and spirits were high.
  Sharon MacPherson organised the couples, explained the format and acted as starter.  The girls were a bit daunted by playing with our stars and having to be scorekeepers but coped admirably with both. 
A big thank you to Sarah Ledingham and Lisa MacPherson who stepped in to help the senior squad.
Scores were close with Jennifer and Jessica pushing the winners Alison and Ella.
