Friendly match vs Midlothian 20th March at Newbattle

Many thanks to all the ladies who volunteered to play in the above match yesterday at Newbattle.

The sun shone and the shorts were out (brrr) a little early for most of us.

Midlothian ladies handicaps ranged from +1 to 5 and we ranged from 1 to 12 so the ladies played very well and although we did not win any matches two matches went to the 18th so well done everyone.

A good start to the season

Border Ladies AGM - Thursday 28th October

We will be holding our AGM this year on Thurs 28th Oct 2021 at St Boswells golf club.

We welcome everyone to our meeting at 1900hrs to help us discuss and move forward with the Border Ladies.

It would be super if we could have a representative from each club as we confirm all our 2022 dates for the season and if we clash with any large events / club championships we can certainly look to change.


We are changing the constitution at the AGM , we hope this will encourage more ladies to come and play for the County.  Please click the link below to check it out

We look forward to catching up on the 28th.
