Commonwealth Spoons Results from Lochgelly

Thanks to Lochgelly Golf Club for hosting the Commonwealth Spoons, foursomes strokeplay event on 16th May. The course was in good condition, the sun made an appearance and I am told that those who played in the morning enjoyed some fabulous food! Thanks also to Mary Davenport for writing out the paper cards that we gave to players as a back up but it was very pleasing to see all players managing to score this event on the APP, so thanks again to everyone for playing their part in learning the new system. 

The course set-up was tricky and scoring was a little challenging but there still ended up a tight leaderboard! Congratulations to the winners Ruth Kinnell and Linda Watson, who used their local knowledge to good advantage and will represent Fife County in the final once more - here's hoping they can defend that title too!!

Leading Scores

  1. Ruth Kinnell & Linda Watson                  93 - 18 = 75 (BIH)
  2. Margaret McKenzie & Elaine McCallum    88 - 13 = 75
  3. Karin Sharp & Gillian Paton                    76 - 0 = 76

2024 Championship results

It's been an exciting weekend of golf on the Jubilee course in St Andrews, the wind blew yesterday, and there was a sprinkling of rain, but the standard of golf shone! We even had a hole in one... 

Hopefully those of you who could not make it to St Andrews to watch were able to keep track of the scores via the link to the Match-play draws on the previous website post. Full match-play results are at FCLGA Championship 2024 and FCLGA Handicap Championship

This afternoon saw Elaine Moffat take on Gillian Paton, which was an incredibly tight game and went all the way to the 18th, with the match all square through 17. Elaine played a superb chip to gimme distance, which Gillian couldn't unfortunately match and clinched the 2024 Championship title.

In the handicap final, Ruth Kinnell took on Sue Nicholson which was another good match for our hardy spectators. Ruth successfully wrapped up the match on the 16th with a 3&2 victory.

2024 Champion Elaine Moffat

Championship runner-up Gillian Paton

Handicap Champion Ruth Kinnell

Handicap Championship runner up Sue Nicholson


Not only did Elaine Moffat win the Championship, she had a hole in one on the 5th hole in her first match. Congratulations Elaine!

Winter 4 Ball Final - Congratulations to Crail

Today in mainly dry, sunny and blustery conditions (one heavy shower) the final of the Winter 4 balls was played in friendly company on the Eden in St Andrews between Crail (Ali Townson and Irene Alexander) and Aberdour (Norma Pajak and Kathryn Murray). Crail were early leaders but Aberdour nipped at their heels on several occasions, Crail winning 4/3. The course was in good shape, dry underfoot, though holes 14 and 15 were still out of play being largely under water.

Thanks to both sides for showing some good golf and to not giving the referee any difficult decisions!!
A big thank you to our 2 supporters Mandy and Irene who came for the first 9, and to St Andrews for the generous courtesy of the course.
