Texas Scramble

Congratulations to the winning team of Lesley Robertson, Helen Craig, Doreen McConnel and Sheila Biggart who had a marvellous score of 59. 4 other ladies teams took part on a bright sunny day. Unfortunately none of the teams came anywhere near challenging the winning tally. However its not about "winning" but "taking part" ! (How often have you heard that said???)We all had a great time and good fun too.

Veterans winner - Jean Irvine (21) 39pts
Runner up - Helen Crichton (26) 38pts bih

Gillies Trophy Winner - Rosemary Ogilvie (17) 38pts bih

Ladies, we are aware of the problems caused by the sprinklers at the 13th and the 14th. Information was obtained from several players and advice sought from Jennie French, SLGA handicap advisor.
After much discussion , the Lady Captain and the Handicap committee have deemed that the competition will stand.
For future reference, Tom has advised that mobile phones should be carried (on silent mode) and should this situation recurr, contact him at the shop and he will contact the greenstaff. There would be a 15minute play suspension until the problem had been rectified.
The Lady Captain has already been in touch with the Club Captain and the Greens Convenor. They are very aware of this unforgiveable situation , which again has affected a Ladies Competition.
