Babe Zaharias 2019

The Babe Zaharias Tournament will be held at The Musselburgh GC this year on Monday 19th August. The proceeds of the day will once again go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Subject to Scottish Golf confirming that Open Competitions can be played, and toilet facilities being available, we are planning to go ahead with the Babe Zaharias Trophy at Muirfield on Monday 17 August. Entries, via BRS on the East Lothian Ladies website, will open at 0800 on Monday 13 July.

We have put back the opening date for entries so that we can provide you with as much information as possible about what facilities will be available, as it is likely that these will be restricted. We will run the competition in accordance with whatever rules Scottish Golf have put in place. (They have recently confirmed that club competitions can restart, with special arrangements made for recording and submitting scores).

If the event is over-subscribed, we will run a waiting list.

So we will be in touch again some time around 10 July to confirm the arrangements that have been put in place, to allow you to decide whether to enter.

Fingers crossed!

Remember The Babe Zaharias is being held at Muirfield this year.

The Babe Zaharias Tournament was held at The Musselburgh Golf Club today, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. The competition took place in somewhat mixed weather conditions, ranging from torrential downpours with high winds to dry with a light breeze.

Captain Jenni Ray was hard at work early on, cleaning the huge Babe Zaharias Trophy with a toothbrush!

The winner of the scratch prize and The Babe Zaharias Trophy was Rachel Livingstone from Baberton. Last year’s winner Leanne Wilson was runner up.The winner of  the handicap prize and The Ultraplast Trophy was Helen Warnock from Harburn. Many congratulations to both of you.
