85 ladies turned out to enjoy the County Summer Meeting at Broomieknowe Golf Club. A great scratch score of 76 was posted in the second match of the day by Gabrielle Macdonald (Craigielaw) which stayed in the lead until Wendy Nicholson (Broomieknowe), in the second last group of the day, posted a score of 75. This was short lived as the last group left the course with Claire Hargan (Mortonhall) recording a 74 to take 1st scratch and the Corstorphine Salver. Gabrielle, however, wins the 1st handicap in the Silver Division. The Dumayne Bowl for the best overall net was won, by one shot, by Carol Clark (Craigmillar Park), a lunchtime starter, while the scratch winner in the Bronze Division and winner of the Murphy Trophy was Sheila Hunter (Murrayfield), another lunchtime starter. The winner of the Bronze Handicap came from the late afternoon starters with Anne McMillan (Kingsknowe) coming home with a net 74.

Our thanks, as ever, go to Broomieknowe Golf Club for the use of their course, which I believe was in great condition, to the professionals for handling the two’s sweep and the bar and catering staff for dealing with our thirst and hunger pangs. Thank you also to Lady Captain Anne Bowden, Sandra Hennessy and Moyra Statham for their time on the registration desk and also to all of the members who donated raffle prizes and to those who bought tickets. We managed to raise £133 for the MCLGA Juniors.
