Ladies Competitions 2019

13th June

Well done Susan Randall and Diane Moncrieff in winning the national final of the R&A 9 hole Challenge today winning with 41 pts, second place was a mere 37 pts.
They may have been representing Comiston Ladies (where they qualified from) but they have also done Lochend proud.
Susan and Diane have won a chance of a lifetime, all expenses paid trip to the Grand Final over Royal Portrush on the eve of this year’s Open Championship where they will compete for the overall title against winning pairs from England, Ireland, Wales and Australia.
Wonder if they need a caddy.

Lorna MacKay and Myra Law were the medal winners in a very low scoring contest today.
Lorna scored a fantastic 62 to take the Bronze and spare a thought for Carole Owens who carded 64 and only made the runner-up spot. Mary Law's 66 saw her into third place.
In the Silver Myra Law also carded an equally impressive 64 giving her a six shot lead over Jaci Moriarty who was runner-up on the better-inward-half from Diane Moncrieff who also carded 70.
This Medal was also a qualifier for the James Erskine Interiors Centenary so Lorna wins the £50 voucher and will be joined by Myra, Jaci Morairty and Jennifer Somerville at the Grand Final at Graigmillar Park in September.
CSS=69 (1-up)

2nd April Diane Moncrieff won the Winter Round Robin today, a very successful run which saw her the only unbeaten player in the group stage and nailing a hole-in-one in the quarter final, steady golf throughout, well done.
For Jaci it was a day of two finals, along with Coleen Derighetti they won the Midlothian County Winter Foursomes. For details of their comeback in the final CLICK HERE.
It was also a successful competition for Diane Moncrieff and Susan Randall who almost made it an all Lochend final but just lost out in their semi-final.

The Ladies had a couple of fun competitions during January and February. The January American Greensomes was won by Susan Randall and Eileen Gillespie with a 68.6 followed by Diane Moncrieff and Linda Hutchinson (69.8).
Diane went one better in the February Tex Mex competition finishing in the winning team with Christine Dugan, Fiona Findlay and Diane Crolla.

12th January

Congratulation to Diane Moncrieff who nailed a hole in one at the par 4 fourth hole today.  She was playing her final tie in the group stage of the Winter round robin with Coleen Derighetti (needless to say she won well) and moves on to the knockout quarter final as the only player to win all her group matches.

1st January Jacqui McIntosh was not only the final competition winner of 2018 (winter greensome with Susan Randall) she was the first winner of 2019 winning the New Year’s Day trophy with a 68, one stroke ahead of Eileen Gillespie in what was a very nice mild New Year's day.
