Our next County Meeting will be held at Strathmore Golf Centre on July 12th. I am perhaps a little biased but Strathmore is a beautiful course which I am sure you would all enjoy. Also the food is wonderful so if you have not already done so please get your entry off to me as soon as possible. Following a postal strike today I will not be doing the draw until Tuesday.

Many thanks

The County Team has returned safely from Cruden Bay after a weekend of excellent golf in very difficult conditions. The team were very disappointed that they did not fare better but I am very happy to report that every one of the team competed with all of their hearts - they could not have been more committed or focussed on the task that faced them. Resplendent in their team colours from the practice round onwards, their efforts and enthusiasm did not waver despite some of the worst weather ever experienced at a Jamboree. Congratulations and thanks to all of the team members for their endeavours, in particular new members Eve Muirhead and Jacqueline Sneddon who fitted in to the team brilliantly well and scored 2 points each (two halves and one win for Jacqueline and 2 wins for Eve). The future for the P & K team is very bright with so many talented youngsters coming through.
I would to take this opportunity to thank Vice Captain Dawn for her invaluable help and support throughout the weekend - not forgetting our band of very loyal caddies and helpers who travelled north to lend a hand. They were Carol Lambie, Pat Colquhoun, Jennifer Sneddon, Shona Leighton, Sal Shepherd, Maria Bagust, Emma Napper and Lenore Kyle - my sincere thanks to them all - we would have not managed without them! It was smashing to see Jill and Stuart Milne with baby Esme who also came along on Sunday to add their support to the team.
A big thank you to Highland Spring for the bottles of water provided for the event and to Somerfield in Crieff who kindly supplied us with bananas and energy bars.

Finally my congratulations to Ros Dunsmuir and the Aberdeenshire Team on a splendid victory.

Captain Janet

Thursday, June 21, 2007

The County Team is off to Cruden Bay tomorrow to defend the North Division Inter Counties Team Championship title that they won last year at Crieff. If you are in the area please come along and support your team.
All the best P & K !

Congratulations to County team member Gwen Lambie who won the Dunkeld and Birnam Championship today. She was playing against up and coming County junior member Ailie Burnett. Gwen won 5 & 3 - well done Gwen and commiserations to Ailie!

News from the British Amateur Championships

An exceptional round of 73 to go with her first round score of 78 has seen County team member Roseanne Niven (Crieff) qualify for the matchplay stages of the Ladies' British Open Amateur Championships being held at Alwoodley Golf Club in Leeds. Roseanne's total of 151 was good enough for joint 36th place with the top 64 to qualify. Really well done Roseanne and good luck for tomorrow.

Not such good news for fellow County team member Emily Ogilvy (Auchterarder)who scored 82 and 81 which unfortunately failed to qualify.

County Champion Alexandra Bushby got the call she had been waiting for this morning! Alex was 2nd on the waiting list when she received a call from the organisers that following a late cancellation, she booked her place in the St Rule which begins tomorrow. Alex has been given the Tee Time of 10.10 which means she will be playing along side fellow team member Roseanne Niven.

We wish Alex Emily and Roseanne all the very best of luck.
Good Luck to County team members Emily Ogilvy (Auchterarder) and Roseanne Niven (Crieff) who are competing in the St Rule Trophy at St Andrews this weekend. Play well!
