We had a fabulous day at Strathmore Golf Club on Sunday. 14 juniors and 14 seniors took part in a Greensome Competition. First of all I would like to say, what a marvelous turnout! Well done all who took part and I do hope you all enjoyed the day and also hopefully learnt something from your 'senior' partner. I do know that all the 'senior' players enjoyed their day and were all very impressed by the standard of play and also your company on and off the course. You should all feel very proud of yourselves, I know I am!

We were extremely lucky with the weather with only a little rain for the players at the end of the draw. Although it didn't seem to make any difference to the scoring!!
The results of the day were as follows:
Nearest the Pins Girls:
6th Hole - Emily aird
13th Hole - Ailie Burnett
Nearest the Pins Seniors:
4th Hole - Sandy Bushby
17th Hole - Laura Walker
Scratch Prize-winners
1st Place - Laura Walker & Laura Campbell (pictured above)
2nd Place - Dawn Butchart & Erin Millar
3rd Place - Annabel Niven & Megan Aird
Handicap Prize-winners
1st Place - Sandy Bushby & Eilidh Watson
2nd Place - Dot Doris & Emily Aird
3rd Place - Pat Colquhoun & Siobhan Teague
Again a huge thank you to you all for coming along and making the day so much fun. Thanks also to Carol Lambie and Shona Leighton for helping with the organisation. The biggest thank you also go to Strathmore Golf Centre for providing Courtesy of the Course and also thanks to the catering staff for the lovely food.
I look forward to seeing you all over the season. Please keep in touch with all you news and feel free to contact any member of the committee and if you need any help or advice.

We are delighted that 14 of you are making your way to Strathmore Golf Club on Sunday. That is a great response, so much so we have had to request more Tee Times!! Our Thanks go to Strathmore Golf Centre who are kindly providing courtesy of the course.

Each of you will be paired with a senior player for a fun greensome competition. We were hoping to pair each junior with a squad member but with more juniors wishing to take part than we actually have senior squad players we are drafting in some lower handicap P&K members to help out! Some of whom are past Team members. We hope you all enjoy your day and learn loads from your partner.

First Tee Time is 11am but make your way to Strathmore before that time to meet up with your 'Team Mate' before you go.

There will be prizes for scratch and handicap, so fingers crossed for some good weather on the day. I will post some photo's next week.

What wonderful news came to me whilst playing golf in Tenerife!! The news being that P&K squad member Carly Booth had been selected for the Curtis Cup Team which will be played at St Andrews this year. Carly, at 15, becomes the youngest ever player to be selected for a GB&I Curtis Cup team. The previous youngest was Jane Connachan from Musselburgh when she made her debut at the age of 16 in 1980.

This is a fantastic honour for Carly and one which she is more than ready to accept. She has already been part of the Junior Ryder Cup team and playing against the United States will not intimidate our Carly at all in fact it will probably inspire her!

Carly's response when hearing the news was 'Awesome, Awesome, Awesome'!! We all send Carly our heart felt congratulations and look forward to seeing her at St. Andrews!

The team along with ages are below:
Liz Bennett (Brokenhurst Manor) 25, Carly Booth (Comrie) 15, Krystle Caithness (St Regulus) 19, Jodi Ewart (Catterick) 20, Breanne Loucks (Wrexham) 20, Florentyna Parker (Royal Birkdale) 18, Michele Thomson (McDonald Ellon) 19, Sally Watson (Elie & Earlsferry Ladies) 16.
1 Kerry Smith (Waterlooville) 36, 2 Sahra Hassan (Vale of Glamorgan) 20, 3 Rachel Jennings (Izaak Walton) 19, 4 Danielle McVeigh (Royal Co Down Ladies) 20.


Auchterarder was the venue for our McPherson Medal on Sunday. The results were as follows: CSS 69 Scratch Kirsty Brodie (Strathmore) 72...
