Babe Zaharias Presentation

The Babe Zaharias committee, volunteers from the day, Trophy winners and a representative of Macmillan met at Gullane on Sunday for a small presentation. The Babe Zaharias Trophy was formally presented by Janette Buchanan our President to Alison McBride from Harburn and the Ultraplast Handicap Trophy to Vicki Cullen from Murrayfield. A cheque for £3,720 was then presented to Pauline Macmillan from  Macmllan Cancer Support.


Babe Zaharias – 2017

The 2017 Babe Zaharias was played at Gullane No1 and while there was early morning mist lying on the course at the start of play it soon burned off from most of the course thought it lingered at the 13th and 14th for a bit longer. For a change there was no wind and no rain and by the standards of this summer almost perfect golfing conditions!

We had some almost perfect golf too with the winning scratch scores of 75, 76, and 77.  A net score of 73 was not enough to secure a place in the handicap prize list with multiply scores of 73 and countbacks were required to determine all three places.

While others were less successful they still seemed to enjoy the day judging by the smiles captured by Joyce on the course and the laughter in the clubhouse. There were lots of promises to return next year to play at Luffness the next venue for the competition.

The final figure raised for Macmillan Fund will be known shortly but it will exceed the £3,400 raised last year thanks to the support of Gullane GC and Lindsays  and the many organisations and individuals who donated prizes and the team of supporters who helped us run the event.

The results:-

1st Scratch and Babe Zaharias Trophy – Alison McBride – 75

2nd Scratch – Leane Wilson – 76

3rd – Maureen Richmond – 77

1st Handicap and Ultraplast Trophy – Vicki Cullen –  Net 73 (bih)

2nd Handicap – Fiona Maciver – Net 73 (bih)

3rd Handicap – Janey Heaney – Net 73 (bih)

CSS – 76

Babe Zaharias Competition

The decision last year to restore this ladies amateur golf competition for the Babe Zaharias Scratch and Ultraplast Handicap Trophies to a stroke play competition so far seems to have paid off.

The competition which has been held annually as a fund raiser for cancer charities since 1963 will be played for the first time on Gullane No1 on 22nd August this year and has been oversubscribed with 20 currently on the waiting list.

Interest has really been sparked and players from 43 different clubs will be taking part. Players are coming from 4 different clubs in England as well as players from Dumfries and Galloway, the Borders, Midlothian and Fife as well as a healthy representation from most of the East Lothian clubs.

The nominated Cancer Charity this year is the Macmillan Cancer Support and the prizes have been sponsored by Principal & Prosper.

The competition will be played at Gullane again next year to mark the 70th Anniversary of Babe Zaharias winning the British Ladies Amateur title at Gullane. Thereafter the competition will move on to another East Lothian Club.
