On Sunday 14 juniors are making their way to Strathmore Golf Club where they will be paired with a senior player for a greensome competition. We were hoping to pair every junior with a squad member but with more juniors wishing to take part than we actually have senior squad members we are drafting in some lower handicap P&K members to help out, some of whom are past team members. Our gratitude go to Strathmore Golf Centre who not only are offering courtesy of the course but following the demand by the juniors, have agreed to provide more Tee Times than we originally requested.

There will be prizes for scratch and handicap, so fingers crossed for some good weather on the day. I will post some photo's next week.

Unfortunately the weather let us down again on Easter Sunday! Gleneagles Golf Academy woke up to 1 to 2 inches of snow which made our 2nd Senior Squad coaching session a bit of a non starter!

Coaches at Gleneagles had devised an outdoor coaching day which was to focus on all aspect of the girls short game and of course due to the snow we had to cancel the sessions. We will rearrange for another day when hopefully this very unexpected spell of weather has improved!

What wonderful news came to me whilst playing golf in Tenerife!! The news being that P&K squad member Carly Booth had been selected for the Curtis Cup Team which will be played at St Andrews this year. Carly, at 15, becomes the youngest ever player to be selected for a GB&I Curtis Cup team. The previous youngest was Jane Connachan from Musselburgh when she made her debut at the age of 16 in 1980.

This is a fantastic honour for Carly and one which she is more than ready to accept. She has already been part of the Junior Ryder Cup team and playing against the United States will not intimidate our Carly at all in fact it will probably inspire her!

Carly's response when hearing the news was 'Awesome, Awesome, Awesome'!! We all send Carly our heart felt congratulations and look forward to seeing her at St. Andrews!

The team along with ages are below:

Liz Bennett (Brokenhurst Manor) 25, Carly Booth (Comrie) 15, Krystle Caithness (St Regulus) 19, Jodi Ewart (Catterick) 20, Breanne Loucks (Wrexham) 20, Florentyna Parker (Royal Birkdale) 18, Michele Thomson (McDonald Ellon) 19, Sally Watson (Elie & Earlsferry Ladies) 16.


1 Kerry Smith (Waterlooville) 36, 2 Sahra Hassan (Vale of Glamorgan) 20, 3 Rachel Jennings (Izaak Walton) 19, 4 Danielle McVeigh (Royal Co Down Ladies) 20.
