Netta Lawrie

Netta Lawrie
It is with great sadness that I have to report that BLCGA honorary member and ex Captain, Netta Lawrie died yesterday in hospital.  
Netta, originally from Selkirk, a founder member of the county and also a Past President of the Scottish Veteran Ladies Golf,  supported the county at many matches, championships and county finals, even as recently as last year she was walking on the course at Stirling with her close friend Isobel Massie.  Isobel has many fond memories of Netta, one of which was watching her in her playing days, holing a long putt across the 18th green at Selkirk which took the Borders into the County Finals for the very first time. 
She was a lovely woman who had a kind word for everyone. She will be sorely missed by all those who were lucky enough to know her.

Friendly vs Midlothian at Newbattle

It turned out a really good although  blustery day for the few of us who were available to play against Midlothian at Newbattle yesterday.  It stayed dry and many thanks to Midlothian and Newbattle Golf Club for their hospitality.

Sharon Paterson & Fiona Ker were first out against Louise Fraser & Kate McKintosh, Borders were 2 up after 9 but a fightback by Midlothian reversed that score.  The match was eventually lost 2&1

Judith Anderson & Marny Waddell (super-sub) had a great game against Rachel Livingstone & Emily Dalgetty and were 3 up with only a few holes to play, they managed to hold on to win 2&1

Our only junior, Rebecca McDonald, joined the
Midlothian junior squad for some match play practice, she was paired up with Sophie Aitchison against Alison Lamond & Lisa McPherson, unfortunately Rebecca (right) & Sophie were beaten 5&4.
