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

Well done to all who played.

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!
