Report from Sharon MacPherson on September 9 hole competition at Swanston:

It was a dry day to start but there was a bit of rain later on. Very wet under foot with some casual water on the course. Only one birdie on the day and it was Lucy Morrison with a great 2 at the 5th. Thanks to Ricky Morrison for collecting the cards as I had to leave sharp.

2nd Caitlin Turner 46 (18) 28

1st Non handicap Alex Massey 34

2nd Non handicap Lucy Morrison 50

SLGA Academy Squad

Many congratulations to Emily Dalgetty (Glencorse) and Eilidh Crawford (Harburn) who have been selected for the SLGA Academy Squad – the national development programme for Scotland’s talented young golfers. Two of only 12 girls in Scotland who have been selected for the first year of this squad. Eilidh has reduced her handicap from 26 to 16 this year and Emily from 14 to 8. A fantastic achievement girls – good luck.

Wee Wonder!

Also belated congratulations to Annabel Thain aged 6, who went to Carnoustie in July to play in the regional qualifier of the Wee Wonders competition. She won her age group of 5-8 year, completing 8 holes of the Buddon Course in 58 shots (and beating her big sister!) Annabel therefore played in the Wee Wonders Grand Final in St Andrews on 27/28 August. She did really well – playing 2 rounds of the Balgove on the Saturday and another 9 holes on the Sunday morning. There were some lovely golfers there and Annabel played some super shots. She completed her 3 rounds in 157 which meant she was 6th overall in her age group. A star for the future!!
