Congratulations go to County Team member Roseanne Niven who finished 2nd in the Paull and Williamsons girls rankings for 2005. A fantastic achievement and one to be very proud of. Roseannes average score in nine of the girls ranking tournaments designated by the SLGA was +2.22.

The overall winner was Krystal Caithness who had an average score of +1.67. County Champion Carly Booth, the long-time leader of the inaugural rankings, only played in five tournaments and therefore did not qualify, as a minimum of 9 tournaments had to be played out of a possible 14.

Roseanne's achievement is a fantastic end to a very successful season and we wish her well with her coaching over the winter with both P&K and the Scottish squad.

After two par rounds of 72, and a final total of 297, Team member Carly Booth finished the British Womens Open in tied 13th. What a fantastic achievment for one so young. After congratulating Carly last night, she said she was happy with her perfomance but still felt it could have been better!
Emily had a final round 82, making her total 313 finishing joint 39th. The overall winner was Dunblane member Heather Macrae. Great to see the Trophy remaining in Scotland!

Well done to all girls.

Friday, August 19, 2005


Carly Booth has completed her final round at the British Womens Open Championship and finished in style with another par round of 72. Excellent golf by Carly, lets not forget she is still only 13 years old! This places her equal 17th at present but with many still to complete there round this may change. Carly final round consisted of two bogeys at the 1st and 6th holes and two birdies at the 2nd and 10th. Well done Carly

Emily has still to complete her final round.

Carly Booth posted an excellent par round of 72 this morning which brought her into joint 18th position. This was an excellent score considering a triple bogey 7 on the 13th hole. She also had a bogey at the par 3 11th hole but posted four birdies at the par 4 2nd and 16th, the par 3 6th, and the finishing par 5 18th.
Emily shot an 80 placing her joint 32nd. Emily had two double bogeys at the 3rd and 14th and 6 bogey's at 4th, 5th, 6th 8th 16th and 17th. However she did birdie the 2nd and 10th hole.

Carly is teeing off at 12.22 and Emily at 12.58.
Best of luck to both

Emily Ogilvy and Carly Booth are both qualifiers for todays final two rounds at the British Womens Championship. Emily didn't score quite as well yesterday with a 78 but this was good enough to be in joint 17th. Carly shot an excellent 75 and has already completed her first round this morning and has posted a brilliant 72. This should move her closer to the top before this afternoon's round.

Unfortunately Roseanne Niven missed the cut by only one shot.

I will try to keep you posted, however a little thing called work keeps getting in my way!

Thursday, August 18, 2005


Team Member Emily Ogilvy is only two shots off the lead at the British women's open amateur golf championship at Nairn Golf Club. Emily is only one over par and sitting equal 4th at present. This is an even greater achievement considering Emily clawed her way back into contention from four shots in a bunker at the first hole. A great show of determination on her part. Roseanne Niven is also playing well at 4 over which is equal 21st and Carly Booth at 5 over par is equal 29th.
However several hours of unrelenting rain is threatening today second round. Four pin placements have been changed and the green keeping staff are working relentlessly to keep the course playable. Hopefully the rain will stop and play will not be disrupted.
We wish the girls well today.

The tournament kicks off with two rounds of Strokeplay on Monday and Tuesday followed by matchplay later in the week. We send all our best wishes to the girls and look forward to this weeks play.

There are a few more scots joining our girls the full list of scottish girls are as follows:

Team member Roseanne Niven, who notched 4 1/2pt out of six was Scotlands top point earner. Next came Carly Booth along with Sally Watson with 3pt each. P&K girls did us proud once again.

In the afternoon singles Carly won her match 7 & 5 whilst Roseanne held her opponent to a square game. A fantastic start for both girls - very well done from all at P&K.

County Champion Carly Booth lost out on her first Scottish Title on the 17th green today 2&1. Our commiserations go to Carly however her achievements this week are exceptional and she is a real credit to our county.

Well done Carly

Sally Watson has gone one up after 12 against Carly.

All square after nine.

Strathmore's course record of 71 which was held by new P&K member Alexandra Bushby, was broken on Wednesday night by team member and county secretary Dawn Butchart. She shot a 70 with level par 35 out and two under 35 back. The round consisted of 4 birdies, two bogey's and the rest pars.


County Champion Carly Booth secured her place in the finals yesterday with a 3&2 win over Rebecca Watson, she now meets Rebecca's sister and her girls' international team-mate Sally Watson in the finals which tee off at 9am this morning.
I spoke with Carly last night and she is in great form and extremely happy with her game at the moment. She has promised to phone me as soon as the game is over!
We will all certainly be wishing her the very best and hoping that this will be the first of many national titles.

Thursday, July 28, 2005


Carly Booth is holding onto her great form and is now 3 up thru 11. News from the other tie is that Pamela Pretswell is 1 up over Sally Watson thru 12.

Team member Roseanne Niven bowed out of the Scottish Girls Championship this morning when Sally Watson won by 1 hole. Roseanne has played so well and showed her great talent to all at Tain. Lets not forget she broke the course record earlier this week and was the top seed. Well done Roseanne.

Roseanne's departure puts all our hopes now with the only remaining P&K player, Carly Booth. Carly stormed into the semi finals this morning winning her match 4+3. Carly who is now a scratch golfer at the age of 13 played brilliantly this morning and secured her place in this afternoons play at the 15th hole.

Keep everything crossed for this afternoon!! Good luck Carly.

The following Scratch League results were kindly sent to me by Kathleen Duncan. They are as follows:

18th July
Auchterarder 4 Crieff 1
Auchterarder 2 points

Blairgowrie 4 Pitlochry 1
Blairgowrie 2 points

25th July
Craigiehill 3 Blairgowrie 2
Craigiehill 2 points.

Both Roseanne and Carly have made the last 8 at the BP Scottish Girls Championship at Tain. Roseanne beat Angus Team player Katy McNicol by one hole and Carly beat Northern Counties Team player Kelsey MacDonald 5 and 4.
Sally Kettlewell lost her place in the semi final when she was beaten by C Easton in the afternoon tie.
Roseanne will now play Sally Watson who knocked out Jacqueline Sneddon in the first round and Carly will face Megan Briggs who knocked out title holder Krystal Caithness yesterday.
We will them all the very best.

Following Roseanne into this afternoons play after a 4-3 win over Fiona Blair this morning is County Champion Carly Booth. Unfortunately both Jacqueline Sneddon and Annabel Niven were knocked out in the first round. Jacqueline played previous Scottish Team member Sally Watson and played extremely well taking Sally to the 17th before being defeated 3-1. Young Annabel played her heart out but Amanda Edwards took control of the game winning 5-4.
Sally Kettlewell throw off her disappointment at not making it into the Championship draw and came out all guns blazing winning her tie 8-6. Sally certainly seems to have returned to her form and played some beautiful golf.

Our commiserations go to Jacqueline and Annabel who should be very proud of their achievments this week and all our very best to Roseanne, Carly and Sally for this afternoon.

Thanks to Pam for keeping us up to date!


News just in from our Captain Pam Drysdale is that Roseanne has just won her first round tie 6&5.

Well done Roseanne

Following Roseanne's record breaking first round 69, her second round 73 put our P&K Team member at the top of the leader board at 4 under par. A brilliant start for Roseanne's week. She will now tee off at 8.30 today in the first of the Matchplay stages of the BP Scottish Under-18 Girls Championship.

P&K Team Member Roseanne Niven playing in the Scottish Girls Close amateur Championship at Tain has slashed the existing course record, held by Northern Counties Team member Cara Cruber, by an amazing 2 shots. Roseanne who posted a fantastic first round score of 69 on a course which has a SS 73 is now 4 under par. A dream start for Roseanne and one which is very much deserved.

County Captain Pam Drysdale is up in Tain to support all the P&K girls taking part. They are Roseanne and Annabel Niven, Carly Booth, Sally Kettlewell and Jacqueline Sneddon. Pam will relay the scores to me as they happen.

Well done again to Roseanne!

The scores reflected the excellent condition of Murrayshall Golf Course yesterday with 5 ladies playing below the CSS of 72. Angela Crossland of Dunblane won the handicap with a nett 70 bih. Squad member Fiona Ramsay of Crieff played great golf posting a scratch 76, well done both.

The results were as follows:

Fiona Ramsay (Crieff) 76
Shona Leighton (Alyth) 79
Jane Yellowlees (Murrayshall) 80

Angela Crossland (Dunblane) (22) 70 bih

Maureen Chalmers (Blairgowrie) (24) 70
Agnes Watson (Murrayshall) (23) 71 bih

My thanks go to Kathleen Duncan for providing these results.

Firstly must apologies for not providing any news for a week or so and very sorry I was unable to get internet access whilst up in Elgin therefore was unable to keep the web updated however I am sure you would have managed to keep up to date at Gillian Kirkwoods site. I am sure you will all agree the girls played their hearts out and were very unlucky not to have progressed to 2nd place. However there is always next year!

Now to club new. Creiff played their Ladies final on Friday and Team Member and County Champion Carly Booth played county member Elaine Davidson in the final. Carly played to her extremely high standard and won 8 & 7.

Comrie have also completed their Championship. County Vice Captain Janet Griffiths and county member Elaine Davidson (finalist from Crieff) played great golf with Janet winning on the 17th 2 & 1.

Well done to both Carly and Janet who now go forward to the Champion of Champions at Gleneagles later in the season. Our commiserations go to Elaine who played very well to reach both finals.

Let me know your Clubs Championship results please by either Email or phone.

Team Members Emily Ogilvy (Muckhart) and Carly Booth (Auchterarder) did P&K proud by finishing 4th and 5th respectively today at the Munross Trophy women's open over the Montrose Links. A fantastic two rounds from Emily of 74 and 72 one over and one under the CSS of the day was a fantastic result, Emily who has not yet played above her handicap of 3 since returning from the states this summer gives us great encouragement as we go into the county team finals this weekend. County Champion Carly Booth who recently reduced her handicap to 1, played brilliantly shooting a 75 and a one under 72.
This was also a order of merit competition therefore both will have enhanced their already good standing
Great result girls, well done.

Both Alyth and Craigiehill hosted their Club Championships this weekend with both clubs placing new names on the champions boards.

Alyth gained a new champion, junior member Jacqueline Sneddon beat Shona Leighton. Shona who has held the championship over the last few years stated that although she played well over the first 9 holes Jacqueline simply played bettter than she did over the last nine.

Jacqueline is a member of the P&K Elite Girls Squad and is currently enjoying a scolarship provided though the county, at Gleneagles. This extra coaching is obviously paying off! She is certainly a great hope for us for the future. Well done.

Craigiehill also welcomed a new Champion. P&K Team Member Jillian Milne won her first Craigiehill championship beating past County Champion Nicki Harding in their final on Sunday. Nicki who has held the chamionship over the last few years lost her reign after a hard fought match.

Please let me know all the details of your Club Championships as they happen.


On what was a very windy and at times wet day, the CSS went up to 74 at Strathmore as we battled through the elements!! However some coped better than others. Night time players Emily Ogivly (Muckhart) scored an impressive 75 scratch only one over the CSS. Fiona Johnston (Alyth) playing off 13 posted an excellent nett 69 and Rae Brass (Perth Ladies) (11) returned a nett 70. Well done to all.
The results were as follows:


Emily Ogilvy (Muckhart) 75
Jillian Milne (Craigie Hill) 81 bih
Rae Brass (Perth Ladies) 81
Fiona Johnston (Alyth) 82 bih
Dawn Butchart (Strathmore) 82


Fiona Johnston (Alyth) (13) 69
Ray Brass (Perth Ladies) (11) 70
Emily Ogilvy (Muckhart) (3) 72
Heather Welsh (Blairgowrie) (16) 73

Past County Captain and team member Hazel Gibson (Murrayshall) bagged her fourth 'hole in one' at the 108 yard 4th at Murrayshall on Saturday 28th May. On a windy day Hazel took her 8 iron and hit her ball 3 foot from the pin it then rolled beautifully into the cup!

Hazel, a great supporter of P&K, was playing in the Summer Trophy and luckily the 4th is the designated hole therefore a Sunday post putter should also be winging its way to Hazel. Well done Hazel from all at P&K!

County Champion and Team Member Carly Booth came rocketing into the St Rule Trophy reckoning at St Andrews with the lowest score of the second round - a fantastic three-under-par 73. This added to her Saturday score of 79 over the New Course gives her a total of 152 and puts her in joint third place, only three behind the leader, Anne Laing, with one round still to go over the Old Course. Unfortunately Carly had a two-stroke penalty imposed on Saturday as her caddie-dad Wally stood directly behind her as she was driving. Without this Carly would only have been one shot off the pace after two rounds.
Carly showed great character by not letting the incident upset her and went on the play a brilliant second round. Carly was out in one under par 37 with birdies at the long fifth and ninth and a bogey at the sixth. She had an eagle 3 at the par-5 13th, dropped a shot at the 16th but birdied the Road Hole 17th which is a par-5 from the LGU tee. Carly played an excellent approach shot, giving herself a chance of another eagle however she missed the 8 foot putt and was left with only a tap in for a birdie 4.
With one round to go there is all to play for!

Her scoring was:
OUT: 4 5 4 5 4 5 4 3 3 - 37 (one under par).IN: 4 3 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 - 36 (two under par)

Another county Team member and former County Champion Roseanne Niven was also played well with a 82 over the new course and a 77 over the old course this morning.

I will try to keep you posted on the eventual outcome of the days play.

Friday, May 20, 2005


Sally Watson (Elie & Earlsferry) was once again under par winning 4 and 3 against 19-year-old Team Member Emily Ogilvy. Emily lost the first after finding herself bunkered and although Emily matched Sally's birdies at the fifth and sixth, Sally's third birdie of the outward half, a 3 at the eighth, put the younger player three up. The on form Sally went on to birdie the 12th, which put her four up.

Emily Ogilvy did P&K proud when Scottish Internationalist Louise Kenny lost out by 2 and 1 to Emily (Muckhart) in a battle between the two American college players. Louise Kenny has been an outstanding player for Iowa State University for the past two seasons. Emily only 19 is now beginning to show her true potential. Emily birdied the first two holes and although Louise pulled back to all square at the 10th hole, Emily showed great spirit with birdies at the 14th and 15th and eventually won the match 2&1.
A fantastic show of golf, well done.
Emily now goes head to head with the 13-year-old overnight sensation of the tournament, Sally Watson from South Queensferry.

Carly Booth played outstanding golf at the weekend to win her first ever County Championship. On Saturday Carly won both her matches against Joan Ritchie(Auchterarder) and Nicki Harding (Craigiehill) which lead to a fantastic semi-final against reigning County Champion Roseanne Niven (Crieff). It was a superb match with birdies and eagles to win holes it was a pleasure to watch both the girls in action. However there has to be one winner and Carly came through to win 3&2.

On the other half of the draw Emma Napper played extremely well to win both her matches on Saturday against Gillian Wallce (Glenisla) and Shona Leighton(Alyth) which led to her semi final against the No 1 seed and fellow clubmate Avril Ker (Craigiehill). On a very close fought match Emma won by 2 holes.

Emma and Carly tee off at 11.52 and with the sun shining down, both played some great golf. Carly won the championship on the 14th green 5&4.

The Gibb Trophy was won by Annabel Niven (Crieff) who is certainly looks like being a bright new star for County Golf. Annabel played beautfully all weekend winning her first match against Maggie Bruce (Alyth) 4&3 then in the afternoon she won against the number one seed Susan Ogg 7&5. The final was against Alison Ker (Craigiehill) which turned out to be an extremly close match with some fantastic golf shoots played it was a joy to watch. Annabelle won on the 18th by one hole.
