The team played at Ladybank today in preparation for the Inter County Jamboree, the winners going on to play for the Scottish County Challenge Shield. It was very windy and we were hoping for calmer conditions tomorrow but the weather forecast is for more of the same.

The first match is against Fife with the Foursomes first tee time at 8.30am. The afternoon singles start at 1.30pm.

Good luck to all our players.

We have been asked to bring this competition to your attention.

An application form and a full description of the format can be found here:

What started off as a fairly nice summer’s day quickly became wintry thanks to a stiff north easterly “breeze”. The front 9 was playing into the wind and proved difficult for many players, not the only problem though as at least one snack bar was snaffled by a crow at the first.

Congratulations to
Overall winner: Isabel Nisbet: 70
2nd: Barbara Wallace: 71 (bih)
3rd: Karen Fullerton: 71 (bih)
4th: Elaine Wolstencroft: 71

Lowest gross: Clara Young: gross 72 (NB one under par gross)

Christiane Maher (4th)

Total number of players: 68

Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open Panel Discussion

Tuesday 6th August, 2019
Simpson & Marwick Spiegeltent
3pm

£10 (Adults), £4 (Under 16s)

This is a seated event.

With world class golfers on our doorstep from 8th – 11th August for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club, it seems only fitting to invite them along to Fringe By The Sea!

The Ladies Scottish Open one of the premier events on the ladies golfing calendar is co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and LPGA. Top golfing names will form our panel, including Beth Allen, and presenter Emma Dodds. Questions from the audience will be welcome. And there’s a chance to pit your golf skills against the pros after the session!

All ages.

 

We understand that there has been some frustration with the BRS booking system.

Players would like to know who their playing partners will be when booking and unlike booking through your home club’s BRS you are treated like a visitor and so have to fill in a form requiring all your details including CDH number.

Unfortuately at the moment due to the limitations of the system we cannot change these settings. Hopefully in the future these issues can be resolved.

ELLCGA JUNIOR REPORT

Since the last meeting we have had 5 ELJGL Match Days at North Berwick West Links, Longniddry, Gifford, Castle Park and Dunbar.

At Longniddry we also held the ELLCGA Junior Spring Meeting and had 9 girls competing. Grace Crawford won with an excellent 40 points, Emma Chapman was 2nd, also with 40 points and Lucy Hall was 3rd with 37 points.

At Gifford the ELLCGA Girls’ Team had the best overall score on the day, of the 12 teams competing. Abby was the leading scorer with 43 points, followed by Ellie Bent and Louise Martin, both with 41 points. Thank you to Jenni and Jane for their help at Gifford.

We had just one girl competing at Castle Park, mainly due to a clash with the championship qualifier at Gullane. There were 3 girls competing at Dunbar. The next match day will be at Craigielaw on 30th June.

East of Scotland Girls played a match against the West of Scotland Girls at Pollock Golf Club. Ala Gorka was the only ELLCGA girl who was able to play. The West won the match.

We have arranged a Get-Together for the girls at Fenton Barns on the 17th June with Martyn Huish. We will use the session for a bit of coaching, a bit of help with the rules and how to mark scorecards and the responsibilities of marking your playing partner’s card. We have got 4 girls who have said they will come along. Thanks to Jenni for arranging the evening.

The Cuthbertson Cup has been re-arranged for 29th September at Falkirk Tryst following its postponement in April.

Many of the East Lothian Clubs host open competitions throughout the year and it was thought that these should be publicised on the ELLCGA website.

I have collated information from several websites and this can be found at https://www.ellgolf.co.uk/county-events/open-competitions/

Opens are a great way of playing a variety of clubs in the area, they can be booked online, though the club website or by a printed entry form depending on the club.

There are several sites that can be accessed to help you enter:

Scottish Golf https://www.scottishgolf.org/players/club-members/open-competitions/

Golf Empire https://www.golfempire.co.uk/

Happy Golf https://happygolf.co.uk/

Printed forms can usually also be found at the individual clubs website.
