We played our first Intra Squad match at Turnhouse GC on Sunday 10th April.
The purpose of these matches is to provide an opportunity for team bonding and enable us to watch individual players and pairings in action ahead of the annual Inter County matches.
Twelve members of the Squad were available and everyone seemed to enjoy the format of Foursomes for six holes, Greensomes for six, and Yellowsomes for the remaining six holes. For those of you not familiar with Yellowsomes, it is the same as Greensomes however, your opponents get to choose which ball you then play!
It was perfect weather for golf and Turnhouse was in great condition and playing well.
Many thanks to the players and to our President Sheila Stuart for accompanying me round the course.
The pairings and results were as follows:
Louise Fraser (Kingsknowe) & Emma Morrison (Gullane) bt Kate Rorke (Kingsknowe) & Hilary Laughland (Mortonhall) 4/2
Fiona Wait (Deer Park) & Anne Hanson (Tunrhouse) bt Lucy Fraser (Murrayfield) & Karen Marshall (Baberton) 2/1
Freya Constable (Prestonfield) & Wendy Nicholson (Baberton) bt Caroline Steedman (Murrayfield) & Karen Ferguson-Snedden (Mortonhall) 7/6.
Looking forward to our next Intra Squad match at Broomieknowe GC on Sunday 24 April.
