Carly Booth winner of Faldo Series at Carnoustie Championship Course Posted by Hello
Carly wins by one shot

County Team Member, Carly Booth, won the girls’ top placing yesterday with a five-over-par 79, one ahead of Michele Thomson (McDonald Ellon), in the first Scottish qualifying competition of the 2005 Nick Faldo Junior Series played over the Carnoustie Championship links in what was a very wet and windy day which raised the women’s coures CSS from 75 to 77.
Carly had halves of 40 and 39 and her only birdie, at the 16th, proved to be decisive.

Following her excellent play at Helen Holms Carly is now in 6th place in the new Paull & Williamsons Order of Merit.

Well done Carly

Also congratulations go to County Junior Member Jacqueline Sneddon (Alyth) who shot a 93. Jacqueline who is currently taking advantage of P&K sponsorship at Gleneagles and is a member of the Elite training squad is showing great promise for the future. Well done Jacqueline, keep it up!

Congratulations Carly

Warm congratulations to Carly Booth who scored a fantastic 225 at the Helen Holm over Royal Troon at the weekend. She ended only 6 over par for the three rounds which considereing 5 shots were lost on the first day makes the scoring even more impressive. Carly who at 12 years of age was the youngest competitor in the field, returned a score of 80 which really was a game of two halves. Playing for the first time in the event, she struggled to the turn in 46, but came home in fine style with a three-under-par inward card of 34. Her next two cards of 75 and 76 completed her score.

Well done Carly

2005 County Championship will be held on Monday 9th May at Glenisla Golf Course. If you haven't already entered please phone Pam ASAP as the draw will be finalised on Thursday 28th.

Once again we will be holding our annual Raffle at Glenisla to off set the rising costs of coaching and the Jambouree. Please please bring along a prize on the day or alternatively give it to a committee member.

Thanks and hope to see you all on the 2nd!

practice Matches at Gleneagles and Crieff

Our County Squad played two practice Matches on what was a very blustery weekend. The first match was against Stirling University over the Queens Course, Gleneagles on Saturday. Unfortunately Stirling could not provide a full team and only 4 players were available. However the players who did take part were extremely strong and although our players played some exciting golf we lost 2-0. The pairings for the day was as follows:
Avril Ker and Dawn Butchart
Jillian Milne and Carly Booth
Our thanks go to Glenealges for providing courtesy.
Sunday was a more successful day when the squad played a practice match against the Crieff men's Scratch League Team. Unfortunately Roseanne Niven was ill and could not make the day. Pat Colquhoun, kindly came along to complete the 10 strong squad. Jane Yellowlees is also unable to play at present due to a back injury. The wind was even stronger than before however the girls played some super golf and the score line was 3 1/2 - 1 1/2. The pairings for the day were as follows:

Fiona Ramsay & Sally Kettlewell
Avril Ker & Sal Shepherd
Dawn Butchart & Jillian Milne
Carly Booth & Gillian Wallace
Pat Colquhoun & Alison Stockley.

The first 3 pairing all won their matches and with a half for the Carly and Gillian this completed the overall win. Well done all.

Our thanks must go to the gents at Crieff for a very enjoyable day and a lovely supper which they kindly provided following the days play. Also thanks to Crieff Golf Club who provided Courtesy.

Carly, Roseanne and Krystal. Scotland Team 1 who won the St Leonards Team event. Posted by Hello

Fellow Scottish Team mate and defending Champion Krystle Caithness (St Regulus)pipped Carly Booth (Auchterarder) once again for the title in the SLGA St Leonards Under-16 girls' open stroke-play championship at Strathtyrum Course, St Andrews on Friday.
Due to the weather conditions the event was reduced to 27 holes.

Carly was on great form as she birdied the fifth and had pars at the rest of the first six holes. But unfortunately she then bogeyed the seventh and eighth and that cost the County Team player her first national title.

Past Champion of the event and our County Champion Roseanne Niven was fifth.

Scotland No 1 Team - represented by Carly, Roseanne and Krystal - retained the team title with a total of 223 - nine shots ahead of England - with Scotland 2 - third on 235.

County Junior Member Lucy Gilmour (Strathmore) who is currently one of our girls who is enjoying sponsorship at Gleneagles through P&K won the Skills Test from her age group.

Well done girls!

SLGA St Leonards U16 Championship

With winds sending balls in all directions and even blowing a pin from the cup, weather-hit SLGA St Leonards Under-16 girls' open stroke-play championship over the Strathtyrum Course, St Andrews has been reduced from two rounds to 27 holes. Play was suspended yesterday (THURSDAY) leaving 27 girls still to complete their first rounds.

Title-holder Krystle Caithness (St Regulus), leads by one shot with a fantastic round of 75 - one ahead of Kelsey MacDonald (Nairn Dunbar) and our own County Team member Carly Booth (Auchterarder) sharing third place overnight with English challengers Rachel Connor (Manchester) and Gemma Hardie (Forest Pines) on 77. County Champion Roseanne Niven (Crieff)scored 80.

As the weather forecast is again poor for today (FRIDAY)it was decided, after consultation with the team captains, that the girls who have still to finish their first rounds go out first. Then the second round will consist of only nine holes.

Both Roseanne and Carly are representing Scotland in the Team event. Scottish Team 1 are leading the field on 152 with Scotland 2 their nearest challengers on 156, three ahead of England (159) with Ireland (164), Netherlands (168) and Wales (170).

We send all our best wishes to Carly and Roseanne and hope the weather shows some improvement over the day!
