Championship Results 2018


Today at a dry, bright, but cool Elmwood we saw some excellent golf from all the semi-finalists and finalists in the County Championship and the Handicap Championship and congratulations to all the ladies concerned.

The Final of the Championship was contested by new member, Gillian Paton (St. Regulus) and former champion, Elaine Moffat (St. Regulus).
This was a lovely Final to watch with super golf played in a great spirit and Gillian emerging the Champion by the winning margin of 3&2 - the difference between the two being Gillian's birdies coming at the right time of the round at the 12th and 15th.  Many congratulations to Gillian.

In the Handicap Final, Ann Shepherd (Lochgelly) defeated another new member, Jude Allardice
(Ladybank) by 2&1 in a very close match. Jude's fitness levels will surely have risen after this weekend with  her three matches going the full distance. Well done to both ladies."

Bronze Division Winter 4'somes

The result of the Winter 4's Bronze Division which was played on Tuesday 17th April was a win for Alison Paterson and Caroline Mackey from Dunfermline 3/2 over Christine Mathers and Sheila Will from Ladybank.

It was a very blustery day and Aberdour is still very wet underfoot in places but it stayed dry overhead.

The players (and President!) were treated to a soft drink and scone after play.

Thanks went to Aberdour again for the courtesy of the course on both occasions and for juggling days with the weather.

Annual Friendly Match


On a perfect golfing day at Ladybank on Saturday 14th April, Fife and Perth & Kinross halved their annual friendly match with three points each but Perth & Kinross may have Fife to thank for that after Fife allowed them to "borrow" Vice President, Lorna McKinlay, for their team when a late withdrawal left Perth & Kinross one player short.

The golf course was in lovely condition and enjoyed by all the players including the six Juniors included in the two teams.

Results ( Fife names first):

Gillian Paton & Karin Sharp beat Jen Saxton & Laura Walker 2 holes
Susan Jackson & Jocelyn Mackie beat Shonagh Raitt & Isla Moncrieff 3&2
Elaine Moffat & Lorraine Morrow lost to Laura Campbell & Steph Crolla 3&2
Lynn Newton & Brogan Clark beat Jill Milne & Caroline Henderson 3&2
Linda Dyball & Hannah Braidwood lost to Lorna McKinlay & Shannon Pook 5&4
Caelan Laesecke & Tara Early lost to Kirsten Miller & Cathy Lambie 5&3

Thanks go to Ladybank Golf Club for hosting our match and thanks also go to the catering staff for our superb bacon rolls & coffee etc before play commenced.

Presidents Cup Results 2018

Well the season started in glorious sunshine at St Michaels this Easter weekend with a ''healthy'' entry of 32 couples in the Presidents Cup.

All players were sent on their way with a present from the Easter Bunny!!!  🐰 🐰

Conditions were dry and sunny with no winter greens or mats to be seen - winter cobwebs 🕸 were blown away and for some the season has started well.

Congratulations to the winners:
1st:  Linda Watson & Ann Shepherd - Lochgelly:  bih 92-21.8=70.2
2nd:  Fiona Mustard & Joan Tulloch - Kinghorn:  89-18.8=70.2
3rd:  Elsie Hutcheon - Ladybank & Jean Driscoll - Scotscraig:  bih 80-8.8=71.2

Very close between the first 3 places.

Well done to everyone who took part, and good luck to you all for the rest of the season.

Thanks go to St Michaels Golf Club for hosting our event today, the course was in great condition considering all the rain and snow that we have endured over the last few weeks, also thanks to the bar and catering staff who kept us all fed and watered.
