Cuthbertson Cup on 17 April 2016

The FCLGA Junior Team competed in the annual Cuthbertson Cup at Craigielaw Golf Club on Sunday 17 April on a bitterly cold and windy day.

The team played Midlothian in the morning single matches and despite the girls playing great golf they narrowly missed out on reaching the afternoon final.  (The Midlothian team were the eventual winners beating Stirling and Clackmannan in the final.)  The FCLGA team played East Lothian in the foursomes to determine 3rd and 4th place and again the girls played really well to secure a very fair half match.

The FCLGA Junior Team were Jenna Downie, Eilidh Henderson (reserve), Evanna Hynd, Anna McKay and Porscha Wilson (Captain).  This is a relatively young team and it is a tremendous achievement to win and half matches with players who are more experienced and about to come to the end of their junior careers with every likelihood of moving into their respective senior teams.  FCLGA has a promising Junior Team and one which with continued support from our members will surely succeed in years to come. 

On behalf of the team I would like to thank everyone who supported the girls on the day and we look forward to seeing you again at future events.

Scottish Senior Team

Well done to both Lorna Bennett and Lorna McKinlay who travelled to Ireland with the Scottish Senior team to play the Irish Seniors in the annual Mary McKenna match.  Unfortunately the Scots lost 10 - 2 but both the Lornas contributed by helping to put the two points on the board.

Congratulations ladies.

Junior Spring Meeting At Crail Golf Links on 3 April 2016

Seven Juniors played at Crail on the Craighead course.  They started in light drizzle and finished in lovely blue skies and sunshine.  All the girls enjoyed their game on what is a challenging course with fantastic but tricky greens.  I thoroughly enjoyed walking around and watching some very good golf being played.  I look forward to the Summer Junior meeting at Lochgelly Golf Club on Sunday 19 June 2016.

Congratulations to Evanna, Hannah and Anna who all had handicap reductions.

1st   Evanna Hynd               79 (10) net 69

2nd  Hannah Braidwood    96 (26) net 70 (bih)
