Gullane Ladies were the winners in a closely fought match against Dunbar played on a beautiful sunny Autumn day at The Glen. The course was looking fantastic with the Bass Rock providing a stunning background. Thanks go to everyone at The Glen for kindly hosting the event and providing a fine afternoon tea for the players and their supporters. Carol MacLeod kindly came along and presented the Carols’ Trophy to the Gullane Ladies Team Captain, Susan Corrie. We saw some great golf from all the ladies.

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.
Grace Crawford from Gullane Golf Club who won the Scottish Under 14 Championship after a playoff with Kasumi Tran of Wales.
Grace who was part of the Scotland Girls’ Home International team just last week, reached the turn in three-under, level par overall, to close the overnight deficit and reach the top of the leaderboard going into the final nine.
After five straight pars to start the back-nine, Crawford took a two-shot lead into the final three holes over her playing partner Tran.
However, Tran birdied 16 and 17 to take a one-shot lead going down 18 but Crawford bounced back from a bogey at 16, birdieing the par-5 18th to force a playoff.
The players headed back down the 1st and it was Crawford who secured the victory with a stunning eagle three.

Congratulations to North Berwick on winning the 2019 Dewar Trophy. The league had two teams finishing with the same number of match wins North Berwick and Dunbar. However North Berwick won more overall games to take the Trophy.
Congratulations to Captain Dawn Young and all the players from North Berwick.
Congratulations to our ELLCGA champion Grace Crawford, who has been selected to play for Scotland U18 Girls in the Home Internationals. This is the first time that Grace will play for her country and I am sure that all of ELLCGA are very proud that Grace has been given this opportunity. The competition is being held at Downfield Golf Club on the 7-9th of August.
Good luck to all the girls taking part in this event.
After a very successful bonding session the night before the team were determined to do well on day 3. Clara and Grace lead out the team in the foursomes and made a great pairing winning their match 3 and 1. Hazel and Sue just lost out on the 18th so we went into the singles trailing by one.

Kay had a great victory against Karen Marshall a real captain’s performance.
Jill and Sue both lost to very strong opponents so all was resting on the last match between Dianne and Karen Ferguson-Snedden. They went onto the 18th tee with Dianne one up. Dianne played the hole well and with her opponent finding the rough won her game and the match.

The team did really well to recover from the first day’s loss against Fife to finish second overall. All credit must go to them, their caddies and all who played a part but especially Jenni who lead us magnificently.
Congratulations to Fife and their captain Lorna Bennett on their victory in the East Division Jamboree. Fife go on to play in the Scottish Finals versus the North, West & South Divisions, to be held at Peebles Golf Club from Friday 30th August – Sunday 1st September inclusive, where they will all fight out to be crowned Scottish Champions. We wish them luck at that event.

After the foursomes were halved it was all to play for in this afternoon’s singles. The match was always in the balance and two wins from the first two matches thanks to Clara and Grace put us in the driving seat. Stirling and Clackmannanshire fought back with two wins against Kay and Sue. Dianne had a very close match losing on the 17th.
A big thank you to all the players and caddies who played their part in giving us this exciting, nail biting round of golf.
On the tee Jill McNicoll
Jill who had been 3 down at one stage fought back to 1 down with 2 to play. At the 17th, the shot of the day, a fantastic long putt won the hole.
The only game to go up the 18th saw Jill remain calm while her opponent got into trouble in the rough, a really good approach and an excellent putt made sure of the win and a halved match overall.
