Four of the 13 Midlothian players who ventured to Fortrose and Rosmarkie Golf Club qualified for the Scottish Senior Women’s Amateur Match Play Championship, namely Fiona Hunter (Baberton) who played Noreen Fenton (Dunbar) in the first round, Pamela Williamson (Baberton) and Fiona de Vries (St Rule). Fiona Hunter and Pamela were stopped in the quarter finals but Fiona de Vries kept going, winning her first match 2&1 and her quarter final match 2&1, before being taken to the 20th hole in the semi finals by East Lothian’s Moira Thomson. That set up a place in the final against winner of the Scottish Senior Women’s Stroke Play title, Heather Anderson. Fiona was not to be put off by Heather’s great play earlier in the week and won the match on the 18th green by 1 hole.
Many congratulations to Fiona.
