Message from our president

I would like to congratulate the Border Ladies Golf Team of Tara, Julie, Fiona, Sharon, Leanne, Juneanne, Orla and Denise our Lady Captain who took part in the South Jamboree last weekend.
It was a pleasure to see such a high quality of golf being played by all three teams - Borders, Galloway and Dumfries. I really enjoyed the weekend and I am very very proud of our team who showed great team spirit and are a good bunch to be around.

Jamboree 2018

Just to keep everyone informed of the Counties achievements at the 2018 Jamboree which was held at the Wigtownshire Golf Club 23/25 June.
The squad was selected at the end of May, a mix of ladies from 5 different clubs represented the County.

Julie Birdsall                    Roxburghe
Fiona Ker                         Roxburghe
Sharon Paterson               Kelso

We arrived on the Friday and had a practice round just to get our heads together for the links course which was very dry and bouncy due to the great weather we have had.
The first match was against Galloway the host county, the morning round is a foursomes competition we managed to win 1 match out of the three so the afternoon singles was going to be a big ask for the ladies, but everyone went out with all guns blazing to do their best and what a great result, we won 3 matches and halved another so the overall result Vs Galloway was a draw 4 ½ points each.
So back to our lodges which were only 15 mins from the course located on the beach with a view to die for (weather permitting), I think our ladies will be  returning to the Ardwell lodges for a golf trip in the area soon.
Day 2 was another scorcher so sun protection was applied ….. Dumfriesshire were very strong with all 8 of their ladies under 5 handicap with the best being +3…..AAAHHHHH
We managed to win 1 match in the morning so again we had to dig deep for the singles, we came up trumps again winning 3 matches so overall we only lost 5 / 4 , a great achievement, ladies you should all be very proud.
Next year we will fight back at Thornhill and try try again.
I would just like to thank everyone for their support over the last few days, it really is a honour to represent our County, things are so easy when everyone works together.
Thank You Denise
