 CONGRATULATIONS

Many congratulations to Carmen Griffiths (Aboyne) who has achieved her first win in the United States, winning the Olde Stone Intercollegiate Championship with a 2 under par 54 hole score. This is a fantastic achievement and we wish her continued success.

Carmen is also included as one of the seven players named in the recently announced Scottish Golf High Performance Group. Aberdeenshire players are well represented in the performance program with Jasmine Mcintosh (Murcar Links) also being included in the High Performance Group. Robyn Fowlie (Murcar Links) is one of five players in the Performance Development group and Ruby Watt (Paul Lawrie) one of eight players named in the Girls' Performance squad. Well done to everyone.

SHEENA WOOD ROSEBOWL FINAL

The final of this year's Sheena Wood Rosebowl was played at Hazlehead on September 29th between Maria Giblin (Torphins) and Karen Soden (Peterculter). Congratulations to Maria who played good golf to win in rather damp and blustery conditions. Well done to Karen on reaching the final.

This was the final golfing event of our season. However I would take this opportunity to remind you that our AGM will be held at Curl Aberdeen on Saturday 12th November at 11am. I hope to see you there.

COUNTY FINALS, KIRKCALDY GOLF CLUB, 26-27 AUGUST 2022 

Our team assembled on Thursday 25th for our practice round. No one had played the course before so it was a new experience for everyone. The course was challenging with several hilly areas including a daunting first hole.

Our first match on Friday 26th was against Galloway. We unfortunately lost the morning foursomes 2-1 with our point coming from the pairing of Fiona Campbell and Robyn Gallon. In the afternoon singles we had two convincing wins with Carol Wilson winning 7&6 and Lauren Whyte 5&4. Unfortunately, while other matches were close they slipped away over the last few holes giving an overall match score of 6-3 against us.

On Saturday we played Fife losing the foursomes 3-0. The singles score was again 4-2 against with Robyn Gallon (1up) and Carol Wilson who again had a convincing win (6&5) getting our points. While the overall score was 7-2 against, again several of the matches only slipped away over the final holes.

On Sunday our final match was against Lanarkshire, the strongest team in the competition and the eventual winners. We lost the foursomes 3-0 and the singles 5-1 with Lynne Tough scoring our point.

Congratulations to Lanarkshire on their win.

I would like to thank the team for all their efforts. For the majority of them this was the first time they had played for the County and this was a new experience for them. They all played good golf, were very supportive of each other and formed a strong cohesive group. It was a pleasure to captain them and I am very grateful to them. 

Thanks to Zibby Brown who has now completed her term as selector. A County Finals is a good place to bow out. My special thanks go to Laura McLardy for volunteering to help out when it became apparent that there would be absences from the usual support team.

Finally, thanks to all our supporters who either attended in person or sent their good wishes. 

Let's hope we can win the Jamboree again next year and qualify again.

Well done to Carmen Griffiths, Robyn Fowlie and Ruby Watt who have been playing for Scotland this week. Carmen played in the Home Internationals at Ballyliffin, Ireland and Robyn and Ruby played in the Girls and Boys Home Internationals at Downfield.

All the Aberdeenshire players did well in their matches but unfortunately the overall results did not go Scotland’s way.  The results can be found on the R&A website.

I would also wish the best of luck to Robyn who is playing in the R&A Girls’ Championship at Carnoustie from Monday 8th August.
