East of Scotland Championship 2017

Sunday 15th October 2017

A full field of 111 enjoyed the rare opportunity of playing The Royal Burgess Golfing Society's pleasant parkland course in Edinburgh on Sunday 15th October 2017 in the East of Scotland Championship.

Despite challenging conditions of strong swirling winds and very soft ground making the course play long, Fife County players were to the fore.

Vice President, Lorna McKinlay, posted an excellent gross 74 (against a CSS of 75: R/O) and looked set to take the title until the last player on the course, Rachael Livingston of Midlothian, also returned  a gross 74 and won the title of East of Scotland Champion on a better inward half.

Fife County Team Member, Brogan Clark, also scored well - winning 3d handicap with a nett 76.
These impressive performances helped Fife to 2nd place in the Team event.
Well done Ladies.

(Thanks to Lorna Bennett - Vice Captain for the above report)

Ann Smith Quaich - Results

The Ann Smith Quaich was played this year at Crail on the lovely Balcomie course with 43 ladies tee-ing off.   It was a woolly hat kind of day - dry but with a cool wind that swirled around. 
The course was in fabulous condition for the time of year & with great views, it is always a pleasure to play even when the game is not necessarily going your way.  
Many thanks to the team at Crail who looked after us really well.

The 2017 winner is Hazel Sturrock (St Michael’s GC)  who during her round of 37 points chipped in twice.   Runner Up is Crail member, Anna McKay also on 37 points but Hazel won on better inward half by a point. 

Many congratulations to you both for great scoring.  
The Lucky Squares winner is Jackie Sheach.   

The end of a good season of golf with FCLGA.   Wishing you all a good winter & see you in the Spring.  Keep Swinging!

CSS - 72
