MCLGA Squad Friendlies


Borders
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


Lanarkshire
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
