The 2013 Scottish Student Golf Championship at Moray Golf Club, Lossiemouth there was a nail-biting climax to the Ladies Championship.
The morning round for the ladies saw the overnight lead of Georgia Gilling closed to one shot, from playing partner Ranfurly Castle's Iona Stephen (St Andrews).
During the afternoon round, the lead between these players and St Andrews Captain, Gabrielle MacDonald, changed hands a number of times and, standing on the eigteenth tee, all was to play for.
A final hole bogey was enough for Lossie rookie Georgia, pictured below, to lift the trophy with a score of 76, 72, 78, 82 = 308, with Gabrielle and Iona tying on scores of 311.
In the Ladies Team Championship, Iona and Gabrielle were joined by Gemma Bradbury and Maranda Brain to take the prize of leading team.

Winter Greensomes for the Carvic Rosebowl is Postponed

Due to the adverse weather conditions (and the fact the higher holes are covered with snow!),
I have decided to postpone the Winter Greensomes Competition due to be played this Wednesday (27th March) until 30th October 2013.
A new entry sheet will be posted on the notice board in September.
More snow is forecast for later in the week, but  I hope it will all be away for our first Medal on Wednesday 3rd April.
