SLGA Scottish Girls

Maggie and I would just like to wish all the East Girls who are playing in the Girls Scottish at Eyemouth next week all the very best. Play well and enjoy !

Championship match report

With thanks to Maggie here is a full match report of the championship final !

Rachel went up in the match with a birdie at the 2nd and then won the 3rd and 6th. Alison fought back by winning the seventh and then holed a great putt for a birdie 2 at the challenging short hole 8th where Rachel just lipped out for her birdie. After an excellent approach shot, Alison squared the match at the 9th.

After Rachel winning the 10th, Alison again squared the match with a birdie 4 at the 11th. Rachel again edged ahead and although her first putt at the 14th went 8ft past the hole, she holed the return to go 2 up. At the long 15th Rachel holed from just off the green for an eagle 3 which gave her a three-hole lead. Alison won the 16th to take the match to the 17th, which was halved in 3 to give Rachel a 2/1 win and the championship title.

Congratulations to both girls on an exciting final, played in the best of spirits, it was a pleasure to watch.

Thank you to all who supported and watched the girls over the two days at Haddington. It is most encouraging to see so much talent in the East of Scotland Girls.

Congratulations to Rachel Hanlon from St Regulus in Fife who successfully defended her East Girls Champion title by beating Alison Goodwin of Glenbervie by 2&1 in a very closely contested final at Haddington Golf Club.

The first of the semi-final matches saw Alison beating Gillian Simpson (Murrayfield) by 3&2. In the other semi, Rachel and Kate McIntosh (Broomieknowe) had a very good battle which ended on the 18th where Kate missed a short putt giving Rachel a place in the final.

Our sincere thanks go to Haddington Golf Club for kindly allowing us courtesy of course to play both the Summer Meeting and Championship and for their very kind hospitality in the Clubhouse. We would also like to thank Dawn Young for her kind help as starter for the Summer Meeting

East Division Girls come so close to winning at Ballumbie again !

From left to right, Lauren Whyte, Alexis Hutton,Tiffiny Wood, Nicola Taylor, Shannen McGuire and our brilliant Captain Alison Goodwin

After a very tense and exciting finish to the SLGA Girls Inter-Divisional matches at Ballumbie Castle, Dundee, the West and North District teams were level with two wins apiece. The tie-breaker was the number of holes up in individual games played throughout the competition.
Congratulations to the West team who came out top with (+20) against the North on (+9).

Well done to all the East girls who put up a tremendous fight right to the end. It really did come down to the last hole played on the 18th in the last match. Nicola Taylor and Alexis Hutton were all square against their North opponents , however Alexis's drive unluckily found an old divot just lying into the second cut of rough and unfortunately they lost the hole to give the North a win against us.

Just a note but, if you count up the number of holes up, won by the East team from the full results below you will see it adds up to (+23 ) , so overall they played some great golf . Well done girls !

We must say thanks to Tiffiny who stood in at the last moment as reserve. Well done Tiffiny you played some great golf. Sam,we hope your back is OK !

I would just like to take the chance on behalf of the East Girls to thank Liz Jones (Fife) for very kindly helping and supporting us throughout the weekend.
