Our first warm up match was against Borders County on Sunday 19 March at Peebles GC.

We were very lucky with the weather as we enjoyed a dry and relatively calm day and the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful scenery which surrounds the course ❤️.

Grateful thanks to Peebles for hosting the annual match and providing soup and sandwiches for the teams before our golf, allowing everyone to catch up after the winter.


Gillian Lithgow & Margaret Walker

Due to injuries and illness, we were down to 10 players so Borders kindly lent us one of their team members, Gillian Lithgow (seen here on the left of the picture) who did us proud in Match 1 by bringing in a point in her singles match .👏👏 Many thanks also to Morag Wardrop (Turnhouse) for stepping in to boost our numbers.

Gillian’s match was followed by five foursomes which were played off scratch with Team Midlothian performing brilliantly bringing in a 5.5 / 0.5 win and setting us up nicely for the start of the season. 💪🙌

Thank you to Borders’ Captain, Kirsty Inkpen and her Team for making the day so enjoyable with all the matches being played in such great spirit. We look forward to hosting next year.

Thank you also to President, Margaret Fergusson and Selector, Linda Wemyss for walking round and cheering everyone on.

The Team was:

Match 2: Rachael Livingstone & Anne Hanson

Match 3: Wendy Nicholson & Ailsa Cackett

Match 4: Karen Marshall & Karen Ferguson-Snedden
