Results of Greensomes at Linlithgow - Monday 30th July

The Midland Vets enjoyed the Summer Greensomes Meeting at Linlithgow today.  It didn't rain - in fact the sun shone and the 30 couples playing had wonderful views over the Forth Valley from the vantage points of the many hills!

The Winners of the Stableford Greensomes were Emma Wilson(Elie & Earlsferry) and Linda McDonald(Ladybank) with an excellent score of 37 points.  Emma and Linda were also the winners in 2011 - will there be a hat-trick in 2013?

Runners up were Moira Begbie(Ladybank) and Janice Lang(Blairgowrie) with 36 points and a better inward half from Sandy Bushby(Blairgowrie) and Alison Houston(Milnathort).

Ladies - remember that Heather, Lorna and Fiona are playing in the Vets Jamboree at the Hirsel next week.  Support would be much appreciated.

Also note that the re-arranged Spring Meeting will take place at Auchterarder on Thursday 23rd August.  The draw will be made on the weekend of 15th August, so if you don't have an entry in, whether you were in the original draw or not, send it now to Alison Houston, Secretary.
