Very windy conditions at Kilspindie meant that the first 9 holes were hard to score on, in fact if you hadn’t lost a ball you were doing pretty well. Some groups escaped the rain while others had their rain gear on and off several times. The course was in excellent condition as ever and all players seemed to have enjoyed the day. The course analysis showed that the second hole was the most difficult, I don’t think that is a surprise to anyone.

Given the conditions there were some excellent scores, Alice Archbold scored a well earned 41 points in the morning and in the last group of the day special mention must go to Alyssa Balding who had 5 birdies, 8 pars and 2 no scores in her 40 points.

The full results can be seen by clicking on the pdf files below but the for a quick summary -there were 90 players and  the CSS was 69.

Our final golf event of the year. Some might say a bit early for an Autumn Meeting but “the nights are fair drawing in” and if we leave it any later in the year we would not be able to offer late afternoon times.

Full details of the rules of this and all other competitions can be found on the website under the Competition Rules tab.

We are all keeping our fingers crossed that we do get a real spring like day this year.

 

As some of you will know the Autumn Meeting at Haddington on Friday had to be abandoned when a torrential downpour following on all the earlier rain flooded the greens and we were advised that play could not continue.

We have re-scheduled the event for Tuesday 26th September. Unfortunately there will be no late tee- off times since the days are too short by that time of year. We have a block from 8.30 – 2pm.

If you were entered for the event yesterday and wish to play in the re-scheduled Autumn Meeting please email to ellcga2@gmail.com Your payment and Two’s Sweep money will be rolled over to the new date. We will as far as possible allocate a time within half an hour of your original time but you will appreciate that some re-jigging of the draw will be required. Times are likely to be earlier than today. If you need a different time please let us know.
The closing date for this competition is 5pm on Monday 18th September.

If you were entered for the event and cannot play on the new date please let us know on ellcga2@gmail.com and a refund will be sent for your  entry and where appropriate the sweep. 

If  you were not entered but wish to play on the new date please let us know at ellcga2@gmail.com and  also let us know your preferred tee off time slot.

Payment will be accepted by cheque or bank transfer.

Please note the online booking system will not be used for this re-scheduled competition.

It would be very much appreciated if everyone who was originally in the draw could respond by the  closing date of 5pm on Monday 18th September.

Fingers crossed for better weather next time.

Summer has arrived at last and we were all so pleased to be able to play in our shorts and polo shirts today at Longniddry. What a contrast to the rain at Gifford last year and the cold winds at Muirfield just a few weeks ago.

There were some good scores but some obviously were confused by the sun and lack of wind!

First – Anne McAllister & Heather Neill – 93 – 22.5 –  70.5

Second – Sheila Herschell & Carolyn Gemmell – 102 – 28 – 74

Third – Anne Blundell & Irene Stewart  – 89 – 14 – 75

The best five score  qualify for the finals at Alyth on the 11th September. Details will be sent to the qualifiers in due course.

Fourth – Linda Henderson & Linda Smith 92 – 16 – 76 (better back 9)

Fifth – Linda Gray & Audrey Berg – 95 – 19 – 76

Two’s – Hazel Saunders & Cationa Smith (16th)
