Twenty-five brave girls and their adult partners braved the elements today for our annual 9 hole adult/ junior foursomes competition played on Swanston’s Templar Course. Rain, rain and more rain resulted in some very cold and wet girls, hands that resembled blocks of ice, soggy score cards and soggy Mums, Dads, Aunties, Grandads, Past Captains and assorted others (mostly ringers in the form of MCLGA squad members and other single figure handicap players drafted in by very keen and ambitious juniors).
1st Scratch: Emma Morrison & Sal Shepherd 33 (bl3)
1st Handicap: Alexandra & Louise Massey 39 (18) 21
2nd Handicap: Anna Massey & John Henderson 34 (12) 22
3rd Handicap: Robyn & Brian Tait 34 (9) 25 (bl3)
Nearest the pin at 9th: Anna Massey & John Henderson
However all the rain and cold could not dampen the spirits and lots of smiling faces, laughter and chat brightened up the clubhouse afterwards, fueled by warm drinks and good food. Apologies to those who went to Swanston for a quiet Sunday lunch! Well done to everyone who took part. Some excellent golf was played and some remarkable scores returned, considering the conditions.
Thanks to immediate Past Captain Tracy for presenting the prizes and to Sharon MacPherson and Margaret Alexander for providing all the girls with ‘goodie bags’. Special thanks to our New President Janet Wake for standing in the freezing cold to start everyone on their way – welcome back to Midlothian duties Janet!!
