Many congratulations to our youngest ELLCGA champion, Grace Crawford.

It has taken some time but we have managed to confirm with Winterfield that her score at our Autumn Meeting is a new ladies’ course record.
Grace’s 65 was the thirteen year old’s lowest ever round and the lowest ladies score since Winterfield was altered six years ago.

Many thanks to Winterfield for confirming this record.

Alongside the Autumn Meeting the inaugural Catriona Matthew Team Trophy was being contested.

Clubs nominated one or two teams of three players to take part, the best two scores being added together to give the score for their team.

23 teams from 14 Clubs took part, including a team from Muirfield and one from the home club, Winterfield.

ELLCGA are delighted to report that our junior team won the competition with a fantastic score of 80. The trophy will be presented by Catriona Matthew at North Berwick Golf Club at a date to be arranged.

Many thanks to Winterfield for hosting this competition.

Result

1st ELLCGA Juniors Ellie Bent, Grace Crawford and Lucy Thomas  80 points

2nd Musselburgh A Trudy Burnett, Anne Rorison and Irene Stewart 76 points

3rd North Berwick A Elinor Blair, Fiona McIver and Gwen Stewart 75 points

 

It was a beautiful day in Dunbar with very little wind and Winterfield was in fantastic condition, scoring was generally good with the front nine proving a lot easier than the back nine. Our members were very positive about the course and all seemed to have really enjoyed their day.

Grace Crawford’s 65 may be a new ladies record but this will need to be confirmed, fantastic score Grace.

Congratulations go to the winner of the Autumn Meeting, one of our new members in her first ELLCGA competition, Val Bird (Royal Musselburgh) with a Stableford score of 43.

There were 15 2’s, special mention for Carole Ross who managed a 2 on the 15th, a hole most of us thought was a par 4.

Thanks go to the staff at Winterfield for their help.

We have 90 entrants for the Autumn Meeting so far, with about 30 spaces remaining on the start sheet. The closing date for entries is 5.00pm on Friday 11 September.

For the first time we will be combining the Autumn Meeting with our new Catriona Matthew Team Trophy. After entry has closed, each club’s lady captain will be invited to nominate up to two teams, each made up of three players who have entered the Autumn Meeting. The Trophy will be awarded to the team who have the highest aggregate of the best two stableford scores from their three players. Note that this is done on overall stableford scores NOT hole by hole. We hope also to have teams made up of county junior members.
Entries can be made through BRS.
