Our team did a really great job over the weekend to achieve wins over all the other Counties at Inchmarlo! The girls were totally focused and pulled together as a team to the very end. Every one contributed to the wins and I thank them all for their dedication and excellent golf! Eilidh and Nicola our two juniors excelled, they were very nervious but gave it their all and the old hands set agreat example to the newcomers. Congratulations and many thanks to the entire team, now we look forward to the Scottish Finals at Dumfries on September 16th - 18th. Thank you also to Pat for her fabulous baking, Carol for her sense of humour and Gwen and Carol Lambie, Pam Drysdale and President Ella for their fantastic caddying. Ella's husband Bob was the official photographer, we should have some photos soon. It made all the difference to have some supporters there so thank you to Dawn and Ian and Sal Shepherd who came to cheer us on on Sunday.

Perth and Kinross member Heather Anderson (Blairgowrie) will defend her title at the Scottish Seniors’ Strokeplay Championship against a very strong field at Portpatrick Dunskey from June 28-July 1.
There is two titles up for grabs with the Championship being split into two events. Firstly the strokeplay winner is crowned after the first 36-holes – then the top 16 players go through to play for the matchplay title.

PS just had an Anonymous message via comments which said 'try marianne carruthers pitlochry' Firstly I apologise when I get things wrong but after a day at work and a night of golf then coming home and posting for every one's benefit at 11pm I have to say I am trying my best. I would appreciate if you could contact me personally for corrections via email or telephone.
Below is the full result from the weekends play at Balumbie. Sorry I couldn't quite fit the very end of the sheets but you can see where the points went on the bottom sheet! Click to enlarge any of the days play.
Firtsly let me apologise for being so late with this report! When I arrived home from Ballumbie on Sunday my laptop decided not to play! Therefore I was unable to do a report then on Monday I was off to Murrayshall for the Scottish Schools and once again was not near a computer. So here we go!
North were pipped at the post by East. East played North on the final day and won the match 3-0. We were therefore 2nd place but what a great achievement for the girls who certainly played their hearts out. Lenore said she was extremely proud of the team of girls who were a pleasure to be with all weekend.
Below is a slide show of the girls at the weekend.
Two P&K junior girls are representing North Division in the SLGA Girls Inter-Division Matches they are Nicola Robertson and Claire Gadsby. The tournament is run in a round robin Foursomes event and Nicola and Claire were paired together both morning and afternoon and the girls won both their matches which has helped North lead in the first days play.
The results are as follows:
South v East 2-1 South gains 2 points
North v East 2-1 North gains 2 points
West v East 0-3 East gains 2 points
South v North 0.5 - 2.5 North gains 2
North - 4
South - 2
East - 2
West - 0
North plays East tomorrow which will be the decider as to who picks up the trophy tomorrow afternoon.
