Many thanks to Callander Golf Club and to Pat and Miriam for convening our last meeting of the season.

Apologies to everyone who played at Callander I did put the results on the website immediately after the competition but was in Dumfries on the eve of the County Finals and somehow managed to put them on the Junior site instead of the main one.
Hopefully this will be my last boob!!

See you all at the AGM. Lenore.

Junior Texas Scramble

Unfortunately the proposed Texas Scramble and Prize Giving arranged for Sunday 2nd October at Strathmore has had to be cancelled due to lack of support.

This season the junior events have not had as much support as in previous years, a combination of weather, exams and holiday has made it difficult.

Carol and her team put a huge amount of time and effort organising these events and it is very dissapointing when girls do not respond to invitations to play or worse still, say they are coming and then just don't turn up.

I would like to say a very big thank you to Carol for all her efforts to encourage junior golf in the county, we do have a core of very dedicated and entheusiastic girls who come along to everything and thes girls make Corol's work worth while.

Champion of Champions 2011

There was an excellent entry for the final event of the County season the Champion of Champions, 23 out of 29 clubs in the county were represented by their Club Champions.

The weather at Gleneagles was not too bad staying dry until near the end of play. The Queen's Course was in good condition considering the wet conditions we have experienced throughout the summer.

Many congratulations to Laura Walker who succeeded in defending her title with a great score of 76!

1st Laura Walker (Muckhart) 76
2nd Jane Yellowlees (Murrayshall) 80
3rd Emily Aird (Strathmore) 81
4th Jill Milne (Craigie Hill) 82

Jane Yellowlees took the best net score with a better inward half from Laura.

The CSS on the day was R/O.

Very many thanks to Gleneagles for the courtesy of the course.
Congratulations to all the Champions who took part especially the winners.

P&K pair Dawn Butchart and Emily Ogilvy returned an excellent scratch 77 at Forres Golf Club today at the SLGA Commonwealth Spoons. With only a 3.5 handicap they returned a nett 73.5 and were just pipped for the top spot by 0.5 of a stroke. Emily and Dawn had the best scratch score by 4 shots!

Well done to both players. Below is the SLGA photo of the prizewinners.

County Finals - Results

Sad to say P&K didn't reach the anticipated dizzy heights at the week-end! The girls played really well and many of our matches went all the way to the 18th hole but I thinks a combination of the horrendous weather and a few puts not dropping meant we came a very creditable 4th!!

The final results were Midlothian, Dumfriesshire and Ayrshire all with two wins each but on a count back Midlothian proved the very worthy winners of the Scottish Golf County Shield and Ayrshire received the F J Morison Trophy for the runners-up.

Very many congratulations to the winners, all the matches were played in great spirit and everyone enjoyed the weekend despite the weather conditions.

Obviously our P&K girls are very disappointed but will be back fighting next season.

Many thanks to everyone who sent good wishes and a special thank you to Carol, Gwen, Jane, Lyn, Maureen, and Alison for coming to support us and caddying in such horrendous conditions!!

County Finals

Latest news from the County Finals in Dumfries.

Unfortunately, P&K Ladies were beaten 3-0 by Midlothian in the foursomes this morning. This afternoon's singles have been postponed until tomorrow morning due to torrential rain and hailstones.

Friday's foursomes results against Dumfriesshire were 2-1 to the local County and in the singles played in the afternoon, P&K were beaten 4 1/2 - 1 1/2.

Tomorrow's match against Ayrshire will be reduced to singles only and played in the afternoon.

A huge thank you all those well wishers who have sent cards and good will messages. Thanks, also, to the caddies who have turned out in the appalling conditions.

The girls have struggled in the weather conditions but still continue to battle on.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011


Good luck to P&K County Team who will be making their way down to Dumfries and County Golf Club tomorrow as Northern Division Champions to compete for the title of SLGA Scottish County Champions.

The last time P&K picked up this trophy was 58 years ago in 1953 so it would certainly be making history if we would be victorious this weekend.

I will try to keep you updated on their progress over the weekend.

The following report is from Carol Muir. Carol has organised this event for many years and certainly deserves our congratulations for not just organising such a great fun event but for all she has achieved for her charity.

Craigie Hill Ladies held their annual Charity Day on Sunday past. The theme of the day was to play golf in a Dress! All those who participated entered into the spirit of the day and there were some remarkable dresses on display on the course and in the clubhouse afterwards. A great day was had by all and once all the monies are finally tallied, we should have raised approx £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Many thanks to all who participated and to the many clubs in P&K who donated rounds of golf as prizes together with Highland Spring who provided us with much needed water on a day when the weather was magnificent.

Congratulations to the winning team which included County Players Jillian Milne and Fiona Ramsay.
