When we arrived at Kingsknowe I knew this year would be exciting, memorable and one to remember. With all the changes to the format and challenges in actually getting here, it was a relief when the first ball was struck.
Midlothian welcomed us warmly, they had put so much work into making sure it ran smoothly. The course was in great condition, offering some interesting and challenging pin positions, more hills than the links courses and trees, again don’t see too many of them on the links either. But none of these deterred the girls.
On day one we were delighted with a half match against Midlothian. We were treated to some wonderful golf, eagles and birdies galore. At points I had to control my own nerves, so the girls must have felt it even more. At the end of the day we were tied with Midlothian on the leaderboard.
Day two arrived, with a damp feel, and we were second out against Fife. We battled it out again on the greens and came away with a 5/3 victory. This put us second on the leaderboard 1/2 a point behind Midlothian going into Sunday, so all to play for.
The weather was on everyone’s mind when Sunday arrived, lightning forecast, we all kept our fingers crossed we could get round before the thunder and rain started.
Stirling & Clackmannanshire gave us a very close match, we secured points early from Captain Tara, Clara and Kirsten. The rest of the matches were all close, hard fought and extremely exciting golf. We just got pipped at the end by S&C and they secured a 4 1/2 to 3 1/2 win. Just after putting the kit away the thunder and lightening started. Torrential rain flooded the course in minutes, boy were we lucky!
Even after Sunday’s loss we still managed to come in second overall, a very good result and all the girls did so well, a very happy bunch, our younger, newer girls to the squad were a fantastic addition.
I was extremely proud of them all and the support they showed one and other.
It was wonderful to have many supporters, and I cannot thank everyone from EL Committee, Frances, Jane, Alex, Helen, Lesley and Nancy enough for all their help and playing their part in the organising of everything. Carole Ross, our President, came to cheer us on and we were delighted to have her there along with past Captains, Elaine Dick and Jenni Ray.
Midlothian came out victors and we wish Louise Fraser and all her team good luck at the National Finals in August at Forres. A big thank you to Kingsknowe Golf Club who kept us well fed and watered, and presenting the course in excellent condition.

Today’s match was against Fife. In an exciting finish Carys won her match and confirmed an overall win for the team. It’s all to play for in the final match against Stirling and Clackmannanshire tomorrow. Midlothian will play Fife.
Midlothian played and won their match with Stirling and Clackmannanshire today.
Well done to the team.

The East Division Inter-County Jamboree 2021 will be held at Kingsknowe Golf Club, from Friday 2nd July – Sunday 4th July 2021 inclusive.
Many thanks to Midlothian County for organising this event and to Kingsknowe for the courtesy of the course.
The Jamboree is an annual three day competition between the East Division counties, East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian and Stirling & Clackmannanshire. This year the format has been changed so that the teams will play 8 singles matches against each other on a round robin basis. There will be no caddies/ trolley pullers.
The winners go on to represent the East Division in the County Finals in Forres in August.
Tomorrow East Lothian take on Midlothian in the first of their matches, looking at the potential pairings there will be some very exciting golf on offer. First tee time 12.34pm. You will be able to get live updates from the Scottish Golf App and also reports from our website.
Accessing the Live Scores from the Scottish Golf App
Go to the Homepage of the App and click on the comps Icon at the bottom of the page. Select Open and Future then scroll down the page until you find Midlothian County Ladies Golf click on this and at the moment you will be able to see player line ups, tomorrow live scores.
Spectators will be allowed access to the course and are asked to respect the current level of guidance and the measures that the club has put in place at the time of the competition.
The main car park is off Kingsknowe Road South. There is a small car park off Lanark Road to the South West side of the Clubhouse. When car parks are full, cars should be parked on a carriageway not blocking any of the Golf Clubs neighbour’s driveways and parking is preferred only on the golf course side of the road on Kingsknowe Road South unless other golfers have parked on the other side. Due to Edinburgh’s ‘spaces for people’ programme the amount of parking next to the Clubhouse has been impacted massively.

This year’s tournament will consist of 8 singles matches each day. Due to COVID-19, the format has been changed to keep within current guidelines. There will be no caddies or trolley pullers this year.
We welcome spectators and ask those who are coming along to respect all social distancing measures and guidelines in place at the time.
Please watch our social media and website for each days order of play, results and daily match reports.
We’ve been amazed (and really pleased) at how quickly the Babe Zaharias start sheet has filled up this year.
The start sheet is currently on ten minute intervals, and we have decided to shift this to nine minute intervals to squeeze out some extra places for people on the waiting list.
If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please just reply to this email (email@example.com).
This will mean some minor changes (no more than half an hour, and just a few minutes for most players) for everyone else. We’ll publish the start sheet as soon as possible after the closing date (30 June).
This will allow us to maximise our contribution to Macmillan Cancer Care.
