End of Season

With the recent spell of warm sunny weather it is hard to believe that the end of season is fast approaching and with the darker evenings you are now only maybe managing 9 holes after work.

The final of the Sheena Wood Rosebowl was recently played at Banchory Golf Club between Michelle Finnie (Aberdeen Ladies) and Mary Robinson (Murcar Links) which Michelle won in a keenly contested match. Congratulations to both Ladies in reaching the final of this popular competition.

The Commonwealth Spoons was held at Alford Golf Club on Tuesday 22nd August. 36 Couples took part and despite a bit of rain the course was in excellent condition and everyone enjoyed their day. Penny Smith (Rosehearty) and Elaine Pirie (Duff House Royal) (17.5) won with a score of 67.5. The other qualifiers are Michelle Black (Murcar Links) and Emma Gising (Murcar Links) (12) 70, Sheila Wilson (Duff House Royal) and Beverley Pirie (Duff House Royal) (21) 70 and Mary Robinson (Murcar Links) and Helen McIntosh (Murcar Links)(18) 71. Good luck to all 4 couples when they represent Aberdeenshire in the Scottish Finals which this year is being played at Alyth on Monday 11th September.

The North of Scotland Girl’s Championships was recently held at Portlethen Golf Club. We witnessed some excellent golf with Jodie Taylor (Downfield) winning the Championship with an excellent score of 73 playing to 8 under her handicap. The Handicap winner was Megan Ashley (Strathmore) (3) 75 and the runner up was Kirsty Brodie (Strathmore) (1) 76. The girls all conducted themselves in such a great manner and they are a great credit to their families, Clubs and Counties and I look forward to watching their progress over the coming years.

The Lyon Foursomes was played at Royal Aberdeen, Balgownie Course on the 7th and 8th August. 12 teams took part and the course proved an excellent venue and a real test of all the player’s match play skills. Unfortunately we had some heavy downpours on Monday afternoon but we still managed to complete all the matches so were then all set to play the semi finals and final the following day.

In the first semi final Aberdeen Ladies 1 (Fiona Seedhouse, Michelle Finnie, Kim Watt and Lesley Marnoch ) played Kemnay 1 (Rachel Polson, Sammy Leslie, Donna Pocock and Vikki Thom) and lost by 9 holes and in the other match Aboyne (Carmen Griffiths, Kimberley Beveridge, Georgette Hollingsworth and Maryla Sime) played Hazlehead (Morven Adam, Karen Thow, Kath Emeleus and Karen Pottinger ) and won by 8 holes.

Vikki and Rachel were also awarded Lyon brooches as first time winners.

It was very fitting that in their 125th Anniversary year, Aberdeen Ladies hosted this event as Charlotte Lyon who donated the trophy in 1936 was a member of the Club for over 80 years and was their secretary for 51 years. A huge thank you to Fiona Seedhouse, their Lady Captain, and all the members who worked so hard both before and throughout the two days in making this event such a success. You made us all feel so welcome and the home bakes were a real treat!!

Unfortunately Shannon McWilliam (Aboyne) , Jasmine McIntosh (Hazlehead), Sheena Wood (Aberdeen Ladies) were unable to play in the Lyon’s Foursomes as they were all away on International duty. Shannon was representing Scotland in the Home Internationals and Jasmine was representing the U18 Girl’s Scottish team in the Girls’ event with both competitions being played at Little Aston. Both teams finished third and both girls contributed to their wins over Wales on the final day.

Sheena was selected to represent Scottish Vets in the Veteran Ladies Golf Association Jamboree at Frilford Heath Golf Club and although Scotland finished in fourth place it is great for Aberdeenshire to have 3 of our players representing Scotland and I am sure their achievements will be a huge incentive for other county members to work towards.

Aberdeenshire was also represented in the Management team of the Scottish Vets with Ellie Whyte (Aberdeen Ladies) as Vice- Captain.

Congratulations to Lynne Terry (9) (Cruden Bay) who reached the semi finals of the Handicap knock out stages at the Strathtryum Tournament at St Andrews before being beaten by the winner, Elizabeth Doyle from Ireland who was playing off 25.

Carmen Griffiths headed over to the States to represent Scotland as one of 6 young Scottish golfers to be selected for a trip of a lifetime to this year’s Solheim Cup at Des Moines Golf and Country Club, Iowa to be part of the hand- over ceremony for the 2019 Solheim Cup coming to Scotland .

Good Luck to Sheena Wood (Aberdeen Ladies) who is playing for the Scottish Senior Women’s team in the European Team Championships this week at Skalica, Slovakia and in October Sheena will again represent Scotland in the Senior Home Internationals at Newport in Wales.

The next date to put in the diary is Saturday 11th November – The County AGM – which is again being held at Aberdeen Curl at 11am and I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

Despite the weather, we had a great day last Friday  at the County Tri Am competition which this year was held at Deeside Golf Club. 28 teams took part and there was some excellent scoring with Penny Burrows (Banchory), Gladys Ward (Banchory) and Margaret Ogden (Banchory) the winning team with score of 62.

Margaret Ogden, Penny Burrows and Gladys Ward


The longest drives went to Rachel Polson (Kemnay) winning the Silver and Grace Porter (Deeside) the Bronze. Carol Wilson (Murcar Links) was nearest the pin at the 1st for the Silver and Linda Moore (Deeside) the Bronze.  Christine Dallas (Banchory) had the straightest drive at the 11th and Carol Whicher (Kemnay) was nearest the Pin at the 17th with her second shot. Special thanks must go to Jenny Skene the Deeside County Rep and Alison Graham their Lady Captain for all their help both before and during the day and to all the ladies who supported the day and helped make the event such a success and I am sure this will now become a regular event on the County calendar.

Scottish Seniors Women's Championship

In the Scottish Seniors Women’s Championships held at Blairgowrie Sheena Wood (Aberdeen Ladies) finished 8th and then qualified for the match play stages which were played over the following 2 days. In the first 2 rounds Sheena beat Donna Jackson (Troon Ladies) and Jennifer Bryans (Harburn) to reach the semi -finals when she beat Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) at the 19th. In the final Sheena played Fiona De Vries (St Rule) but unfortunately lost 5&4 however Sheena is to be congratulated on her excellent performance all week.

However the highlight of the day was Kimberley’s score of three under par 70 which set a new course record.

Kimberley and Sammy both won their first round matches when unfortunately they had to play each other in the next round and after a tremendous match Kimberley won at the 19th to set up a semi- final match against Gillian Paton (Royal Montrose). The other semi- final was between Eilidh Watson (Muckhart) and Jen Saxton (Muckhart).

Kemnay proved a popular venue and was a real test in both stroke and match play conditions and special thanks to all the staff at the club for making us feel so welcome and to Karen, our Secretary for all her hard work in organising such a successful event.

Scottish Girl’s Amateur Championship

We are also organising the Junior North of Scotland Championships on Sunday 20th August at Portlethen Golf Club so we are hoping for a good entry from our Junior County members.

Unfortunately our younger County members were not able to play at Kemnay because they were playing in the Scottish Girl’s Amateur Championship over Drumoig and Scotscraig. After 2 stroke play rounds Shannon McWilliam (Aboyne), Jasmine Mackintosh (Hazlehead) and Carmen Griffiths (Aboyne) all finished in the top 10 to qualify for the match play stages. In winning her first round match against Jennifer Rankine (Haggs Castle), Shannon had a hole in one with a 5 iron at the sixth hole (148yds).

Jasmine also won her first round match to set up a quarter final match against Shannon on Monday morning which Shannon won 6&5 but sadly she then lost her semi -final match to no 2 seed Jillian Farrell (Cardross) 2&1.

Carmen has an exciting Summer ahead as she is one of 6 young Scottish golfers to be selected for a trip of a lifetime to this year’s Solheim Cup at Des Moines Golf and Country Club, Iowa to be part of the hand- over ceremony for the 2019 Solheim Cup coming to Scotland . Carmen will also be part of a Pro- am team competing at the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Kingsbarns Golf Links in August.

Another Hazlehead youngster Rachel Mathieson is also heading to the USA at the end of July to play in the US Kid’s Golf Teen World Championships which are being held at Pinehurst, N Carolina.

We wish Rachel and Carmen a great trip and I am sure they will be great ambassadors for their clubs and Aberdeenshire County.

The Inter Club Lyon Foursomes are being held at Balgownie Links  on Monday 7th / Tuesday  8th August and the closing date for entries is Monday 17th July.

On Saturday we beat Angus 5-4. Had a superb win over Northern Counties on Sunday 7 – 2 so the following day was the title decider between ourselves and Perth and Kinross. We won the foursomes 2-1 in the morning but unfortunately we just couldn’t quite get the winning point in the afternoon with P&K winning with the last putt on the 18th green.  I would just like to thank Ann, Margaret, Laura and Karen for all their support and encouragement over the weekend – they really kept me going! -  and to all the Aberdeenshire caddies and  supporters who did a brilliant job – there  was a real ‘Aberdeenshire’ team spirit throughout he whole weekend  and it was great to see so much yellow round the course.

British Amateur Championship

In the British Amateur Championships held in Wales Shannon McWilliam (Aboyne) again performed well to be the best placed Scot after the qualifying rounds on 7th place. She won her first round tie at the 19th against Ana Pelaez (Spain) before narrowly losing in the next round on the 18th to another Spaniard Ainhoa Olarra. Shannon was an automatic selection for the girl’s side but because of her consistent form in leading events she has been named in the Scottish Women’s team for next months’ European Team Championships in Montado, Portugal. Many congratulations to her on this excellent achievement.

County Championship

Well the County season is well and truly underway with four county opens successfully completed – Ballater, Aboyne, Banchory and Fraserburgh – and all have been well supported with some excellent scores being produced. Congratulations to all our Prize winners.

A couple of weekends ago, it was the County Championship at Cruden Bay and what a fabulous three days we had. The sun shone and the wind blew and the course was in great condition demanding a very high level of skill and course management in both stroke and match play situations. It proved to be a fantastic venue for the most prestigious event in the calendar. 30 ladies teed off on Friday afternoon with Gillian Mackenzie (Banchory) being the leading qualifier on 79.

Gillian MacKenzie and Margaret MacNaughtan


The following day the match play stages in both the Scratch and Handicap sections started (A full list of all the results can be found on the website under competition results). The matches were all closely contested and played in such good spirit and it was obvious to the spectators that all the players were thoroughly enjoying the challenges the course had to offer. On Sunday morning the final of the handicap trophy was between Karen Mackay (Murcar Links) and Catriona MacDonald (Aberdeen Ladies) which Karen won 5&4.
