This is the story …. On Saturday the monsoons came. Would we play, would we not? Sunday – amazingly the course was open albeit on a few winter greens and no trolleys – a few moans and groans and carry bags produced. Got half way round and the heavens opened again – so back to the clubhouse. Contingency plans hatched….
Day 1 … no rain, course open. Team happy and ready to go…
Solid start against Stirling and Clackmannanshire winning 6.5 – 2.5 (foursomes 2-1: singles 4.5-1.5)
Day 2: Fife – More sunshine
But at lunchtime the mood was not sunny after loosing the foursomes 3-0. Time to regroup- we did it last year, we can do it again! and yes we did – in some style. In typical Midlothain style the girls dug very deep – they were awesome, winning 5.5 points out of six!! I’m sure we had a bit of divine intervention!!
Day 3: East Lothian – getting ready to finish the job ….
Fantastic performance. 3-0 in the foursomes and 4.5-1.5 in singles. A true team effort!
We are off to Montrose in September to defend our Scottish County Trophy!
Thanks to all our fantastic caddies and supporters, to VC Sheila, Secretary Hilary, President Janet, Selector Linda for all their hard work and support over the three days and to Agnes Leslie our Tournament Secretary.
A huge thank you to Turnhouse Golf Club who were fantastic hosts and in particular Turnhouse Lady Captain Isla McCrone, for her brilliant hard work and organisation prior to and during the competition. The course was amazing considering the pre match monsoons – a big thank you to Gavin and his greens staff.
