Seventy eight club teams from across Scotland took part in the Scottish Match Play Foursomes 2011. This tournament started out in back April and is a knockout foursomes event. P&K Club Dunkeld and Birnam made it through to the finals which were held at Glenbervie Golf Club on Sunday 28th.
The other teams who played their way to these stages were Dirleton Castle,  Bridge of Allan and Crichton. Dunkeld and Birnam were represented by Anne Walker and Sheila MacDougall. In the morning the first of the semi-finals was between Dirleton Castle, represented by Hazel Saunders and Terry Reekie and Dunkeld & Birnam, this proved to be a very tight match throughout, going down to the very last putt on the 18th green which Hazel Saunders holed to clinch the match for Dirleton Castle, one up.

The second semi-final was also an excellent match, however the Crichton pair of Rachel Walker and Amy Little took advantage of their longer hitting in the windy conditions and won through against Carole Mackay and Janis Myles of Bridge of Allan by 4 & 3.

Crichton once again made their longer hitting count in the final against Dirleton Castle, winning the match by 7 & 6 and taking the title of Scottish Match Play Foursomes Champions for 2011.

Unfortunately Dunkeld and Birnam duo lost out in the match to decide third & fourth places in the afternoon when Bridge of Allan won at the 16th hole.

Congratulations to Dunkeld and Birnam team in making it so far in this national event.

Carol Muir our match secretary has asked me to post the following report following a freindly match the team played on Tuesday night. Below is a slideshow of the night.

The P&K Ladies team of - Laura Walker / Eilidh Watson; Eve Muirhead / Jillian Milne; Fiona Ramsay / Nicola Robertson, Jane Yellowlees / Gillian Wallace, played a foursomes match against the County Men on Tuesday evening over the Lansdowne Course, Blairgowrie G.C. This had been scheduled to be played in June but had to be postponed due to torrential rain/gales.

Although perfect conditions for playing golf the Men were in no mood to have a repeat performance of last year's result when the Ladies won. Unfortunately, with a little jiggery pokery of the rules and the Ladies not receiving any shots this year, the team was fairly comprehensively beaten with the exception of Fiona and Nicola who played well to ensure their game ended All Square. Final Result was 3 1/2 - 1/2.

Iain Simpson, Men's County Secretary has confirmed that this should now be an ongoing annual fixture and is putting up a Trophy to be competed for - now we will have to look at the rules!!

Anyway, a good night was had by all and the course itself was in great condition with excellent greens and the hospitality provided afterwards was enjoyed by all.

Thanks to Carol for forwarding her report and we wish the girls all the best for the County Finals at Dumfries. I will post more info regarding the finals soon.
