Elite Squad Coaching

The girls in our Elite Junior Squad have completed three coaching sessions through February and March, in between the periods of snowfall.

The first session was in the driving range on long game, followed by a trip onto the 9 hole course, with Brian and Andy, having a look at course management.

Finally Andrew and Matthew touched on some mental techniques helpful to get into the 'ZONE'.

The girls have enjoyed the coaching and found some of the techniques really useful.

The photographs show Megan, Emily, Nicola, Kathryn and Erica, followed by Hannah, Laura, Rheanna and Erin.

Two squad members not in the photos are Eilidh Watson and Siobhan Teague.

Many thanks to Brian and Andy, shown in the pictures and to Matthew and Andrew.

Our next event is the Junior and Senior game at Strathmore on Saturday 10th April. We hope to have 14 pairs playing.


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