Inverallochy 20th September 2019

Inverallochy Golf Club was delighted to welcome the Buchan Ladies Senior Golfing Association for the first time on Friday 20th September. The event brought the 2019 season to a close with 52 players taking part.

 We enjoyed a beautiful day for late September and received some great comments regarding the condition of the course.                                                                                    The winner in the Silver Section was Lorna Hay from Inverurie Golf Club with an excellent score of 37 points and the Bronze Section winner was Doreen Souter from Fraserburgh Golf Club with the leading score of 38 points.

 It was a pleasure for the club to host the event and we look forward to welcoming everyone again in the 2020 season.

Cruden Bay 5th September 2019

In total, there were 19 silver division and 44 bronze division ladies playing in the Cruden Bay meeting on Thursday 5th September.  It was a dry, although slightly windy day (not unusual for Cruden Bay!).  Congratulations go to Pauline Johnson of Fraserburgh, who had a hole in one at the 15th hole on the main course!  Well done Pauline, who was also the first prize winner in the silver division.  Doesn’t get much better than that!

 

Ellon 23rd August 2019

No problems with the weather this year as 61 ladies took to the fairways at Ellon on a warm sunny day. Although the course was in excellent condition the rough was very thick in places and coupled with fast greens made scoring quite difficult. This was reflected in the CSS which went up 1 and only one lady managed to play to her handicap. Hopefully everyone enjoyed their day despite the tricky playing conditions

Newburgh 8th August 2019

Fifty Six ladies had an enjoyable day at Newburgh.   The weather wasn’t wonderful but considering how much rain we had had the day before and how wet the following day turned out to be, we were very lucky.   I don’t think anyone had to go fishing in the flooded bunkers for their ball.   There were some very good scores on the first nine but the second nine seemed to defeat a lot of players.   However Helen Stewart from Peterhead played well throughput and came in with 36points to win the Bronze and Astrid Koppernaes 35 points to win Silver on her own course.

Longside 26th August 2019

What a wonderful day it turned out to be, however, some of the Ladies found it quite hard going, the temperature for some was just a bit too much, I think we reached 25 degrees and towards the afternoon there was a slight breeze which did help.
The course was in excellent condition but should stray from the fairways it could become quite difficult, I think we had a good turn out with 60 in total and thanks to everyone that turned up on the day.

Fraserburgh 11th July 2019

A good day was had by all that played with weather staying favourable for most of the players with added bonus of no wind.   Congratulations again to Jackie Guthrie of Inverurie who had a Hole-In-One at the 17th.

Turriff 20th June 2019

Don’t think many of us set the heather on fire but the course was playing long and the occasional heavy bursts of rain and gusts of wind did not do us any favours.  I hope you at least appreciated the beauty of the course.

It was a good turnout – 76 – and on the whole I think everyone enjoyed their day.

Oldmeldrum Friday 7th June 2019

Yet again the Buchan Seniors had a glorious day weather wise at Oldmeldrum. After the previous days of thunderstorms and even hail, we were delighted by all the sunshine! Nearly 70 ladies took part and it all ran pretty smoothly. The course was  amazingly dry and our greenkeepers received several compliments. I think the home made scones and cakes in the clubhouse also enhanced our day. Good luck Turriff!

Inverurie Friday 24th May 2019

We started off with 81 players having had to add an extra tee time but unfortunately ended up with 68 on the day after call offs.   Weather was cooler in the morning till the sun came out and the temperature rose to the delight of all.   Our greenkeeper had been out in the morning before play ironing the greens and as we like to find an excuse for our bad scores this was it, as it made putting difficult.     I don’t think I heard so many saying when they handed in their card  “for the bottom of the pile”   but on saying that everyone remarked on how good the course was looking.

           

Peterhead Rep Margaret wrote from Peterheads day on 9th May 2019

Our little feline visitor from last year appeared today to welcome the ladies at Peterhead’s Senior Golf competition. One of our ladies made the mistake of giving the cat a cuddle before going to the first tee! The cat then followed her and her companions to the first tee and proceeded to accompany them down the fairway. At one point they were also joined by a little bunny rabbit! A good day had by all although very windy!
