Friendly Match v. Lanarkshire

The first of the winter season squad events took place today with our annual friendly match v. Lanarkshire.  There were familiar faces in both teams and a chance to for some to catch up.

The match was played over Gullane No.2  on what was a sunny but cold late autumn day.

It was a friendly in name and friendly in nature though still very competitive with four of the matches going to the 17th or 18th. The result was an amicable half.

Solheim Cup 2019

Our congratulations go to Catriona Matthew in being named as captain of the European team to meet the USA at Gleneagles in  September 2019. A hard earned and well deserved appointment.

Catriona has appeared in the Solheim Cup teams since 1998 and having been called in as a reserve this year, much to the delight of East Lothian, she went on to win 3 points from four matches.

We wish Catriona well for her preparations for the event and success when the time comes.  I am sure there will be a larger than usual contingent from East Lothian at this Solheim Cup.

News round-up

The Ladies British Amateur Stroke Play Championship was played at North Berwick earlier this month. There was sadly a shortage of East Lothian talent with Dawn Young the sole East Lothian player. Clara Young like so many of of the top young players had already returned to college and were unavailable. Conditions were difficult but Linn Grant was a worthy winner with a score of -4 over the four rounds.

Dawn failed to make the cut but we wish her good luck and better fortune when she plays in the Senior Ladies British Open Amateur Championship at Royal Belfast next week

Commonwealth Spoons -Finals

The finals of the Commonwealth Spoons were held at Alyth on Monday. ELLCGA was represented by five couples but sadly the Spoons have gone south to Dumfries and not to East Lothian.  The course was in great condition but with not much run after so much rain and we all seemed to struggle with the greens and at times with a testing wind funnelling down between the trees.

Juniors

The finals of the Stephen Gallacher Foundation were held last weekend at Kingsfield GC and Ala Gorka scored a great 42 points in the under 14 girls section. This left her after a play off in 2nd place.  Ala also finished 2nd in the under 14g girl’s order of merit despite being unable to play in a number of competitions.  Ala has cut her handicap from 16 to 10.7 this year. Well done Ala.

East of Scotland Championship

A reminder that this event is being played at Royal Burgess on Sunday 15th October. The closing date is Monday 26th September so get your entry in soon if you want to play.
