Ladies Winter League 27 Feb & 6 Mar

Two weeks of glory to catch up on... First up 27th February, where 6 of us trooped out to do Winter League battle. After a long gap, someone finally got a two! Hurrah for Elizabeth. And hopefully she returns from the Caribbean in time for our next fixture <joke obvs> Both Elena and Elizabeth had terrific blob-free rounds. But with her two for (sit down) FIVE points, Elizabeth ran out a clear winner. Very well done. Elizabeth 33 points Elena 28 points Janette 27 points Today we had a great turnout with 9 golfers out for Winter League. And conditions…

Ladies Winter League Feb 6th

Well, since the last post before Christmas, there's been a whole two, count 'em, TWO who Winter League fixtures played (thanks to the ongoing freeeeeezing conditions which mean that most of January was a write-off in golfing terms). Saturday January 30th I wasn't out there myself so no photographs I'm afraid. No twos to report but there were some fine scores carded: 1st Annie 30 points 2nd Fiona 29 points 3rd= Kay 25 points 3rd= Janette 25 points It was tough luck on the following two ladies who were only a point or two behind the top of the scoreboard.…

Ladies Catch Up

Hello, I'm freshly-emerged from the black hole known as WHS. Is it still 2020? Oh, I missed some weather! It appears I've missed a few write-ups. Here's a quick catch-up... Winter League 28th Nov It was wet on the course, but dazzlingly bright. We scooted round for 15 sunny holes. Some excellent scoring resulted in: Elizabeth 35 points Fiona 34 points squint and you'll see me in the distance...Gill 29 points No 2's to report. But some rather nice crunchy, oaty biscuits: December Medals 5th Dec (9&18 hole varieties) Playing the front half with Kay, we chose out festive theme of…

Ladies Winter League 21/11/20

Plenty of overnight rain to soften up the course for this week's Winter League. As they mentioned once or twice on the Masters commentary, it'll be like throwing darts at a dartboard(!) Expecting a mud bath, we restricted ourselves to 9 holes despite the sunshine.   Three groups of golfers skidded up the hill to compete for this week's Winter League.   The golf was steady in our group. With a particularly fine chip down the 9th by Erica...   No twos to report from the day's play, but some fine scoring. Marena led the way with a terrific 18…

Ladies – And we’re back!…

...how have you been since March? Here's a gallop through what you may have missed... Soooooo...we had no golf at all 😱 for two months, then we returned with a lot of restrictions. Undaunted, we devised a Lockdown League which kept us entertained for four happy weeks. Elena Rogers was the worthy winner but please don't ask to see the trophy! Once the restrictions were lifted a wee bit more , we hastily re-shuffled our golfing calendar and resumed some of our competitions in July. Unfortunately, the Opens remained cancelled - we hope to be able to run them in 2021.…

Muffins still hot from the oven. Delish.

Ladies – social sweep

It was just a bit too dreich and blustery to entertain the thought of 18 long holes. Especially with the forecast so poor. So all six intrepid golfers headed out instead of a quick social sweep over 9 holes.   It was windy and rainy all the way round. Fortunately, we're all nails so there was hardly any whining to be heard. Mainly because we had so many layers of hats on.   Nobody made it round blob-free. But a creditable three of us managed to hold it down to a single blip.     On a few tees, the…

Ladies Winter League – 29th Feb

  After storms Ciara and Dennis put the kibosh on the last two weeks' play, we were all suffering rather badly from cabin fever. Luckily Storm Jorge was considerate enough to delay his arrival long enough to let us set out for some fresh air. Full disclosure: I wasn't keen having walked up and aquaplaned across - sorry- inspected the first green. But I got run over in the stampede of players who headed for the first tee in eager anticipation. Who was I to argue? So seven, stir-crazy golfers set out in the dazzling sunshine to do battle for…

Ladies February Medal

The weather had improved markedly since last week, despite the horrific forecast. We had 7 golfers line up for the February Medal.   Marena & I set off as the second pair behind Erica & Elena. Janette, Linda & Anne brought up the rear (not a euphemism).   We both managed to stonk our drives up to summerish distance!   And a couple of actual par 4s set us up nicely on the first hole. Ahead of us Elena had also started with a lovely wee 4. The wind was pretty gusty which made club choice interesting (ie a lottery!)…

Ladies Winter League – And then there were five

A balmy 19 degrees in New Galloway today...delicious for golf... .........aye, right! 19 degrees fahrenheit maybe...aka 7 degrees celsius. Not warm. Nor very dry either, as you can see from my gloves after a 9 hole round... And a touch breezy...the fourth green isn't usually the windiest place on the course. So five of us  saw the rain lessen and thought 'it'll be fine, let's go out'. Needless to say, it deteriorated quickly and stayed grim until we got back to the clubhouse. Luckily we'd only committed to a quick 9 holes. There will be few photos. Although my camera…

Ladies Winter League – Burns Day!

Let me assure you that the late arrival of the blog is in no way a reflection of the magnificence of the golf played this week! Week 12 of the Winter League turned out to be a hotly contested affair. We had our closest result in a month. Six intrepid golfers headed up into the chill to do battle with the Winter League/the course/themselves...   The leading group made an excellent start with two 2's and a 3 on show. Proving to Linda it was worth it to run back to the clubhouse for her putter! It earned her the…
