The summer school holidays are looming........ and wishfully, some fine weather to play golf together and enjoy our great Scottish golf courses.

What’s happening in P&K ?

The Noah’s Ark coaching under Niall McGill’s expert eye has concluded.
The ladies’ committee had hoped for a better take up of these six hours of personal golf tuition, however, I’m certain the girls who attended will have benefitted and thanks to the parents, who brought them.

The intermediate coaching continues at The Golf Academy, Gleneagles under another expert eye of Matthew Galley. There are now four sessions left to run;
Sunday 10th July, Sunday 31st July, Sunday 14th August and Sunday 3rd September ( a change).
These coaching sessions with Matthew and his team are good fun and designed for you to improve your golf game and “get more out of the game”. So, try not to miss them.

2016 Gleneagles Scholarship Girls: Katy Alexander, Megan Ashley, Kirsty Brodie and Amy Mitchell
These County girls along with Zoe Morton, Shannon Pook and Katriona Taylor have benefitted from the scholarship and are all enjoying playing golf, reducing their handicaps and having success on the fairways........congratulations.

Important change to 2016 P&K County Girls Championship
As this year’s championship, due to be played on “The Wee Course” Blairgowrie on Sunday, 22nd May was cancelled, the ladies’ committee has come up with a substitute “cunning plan” Here it is:
The scratch and handicap championships will be awarded on the basis of an “Order of Merit “ amongst those participating in the P&K County Ladies’ fixtures and the junior County Opens. So enter as many of these events as possible and improve your chances of success.

Here are the websites to investigate for details :

The secretary for the County is David Ramsay and he will be happy to explain the “Race to Kings Barnes” Junior Bell Trophy and any other junior open on their website.

Finally our own revised fixtures 2016.

Sunday 21st August, North of Scotland County Girls Championship
Your County is the host this year and our STRATHMORE GOLF CENTRE is the venue. Girls from Northern Counties, Aberdeen, Angus and Perth &Kinross are eligible to play at scratch and handicap level. Excited? Well I have enclosed an entry form and......the more of you that enters the bigger the prizes! Andy Murray is a millionaire you know! And ......the food is great at Strathmore. If you have a current handicap....what’s stopping you?

Sunday 28th August, Milnathort, McPherson Medals
This has not changed. Milnathort is a delightful 9 holer in our County and not to be missed. The thing about playing 9 holers is of course your “second service” in the second nine!

Sunday 11th September, Drysdale and Karyn Dallas Trophies
This has been rearranged from 12th August....still at Alyth... tee times start from 10am and our own Megan Thom, of course won the P&K County Ladies Handicap Championship here in May .

Ok gals! Lets get golfing!

I am your junior convenor and don’t hesitate to contact me with any of your golfing queries.
