Congratulations to Neil Plenderleith and Douglas Hewat on winning the inaugural Seniors Championship and “B” Division Seniors Championship.
Today’s finals concluded the week long match-play stages of the tournament which, notwithstanding the various medical check-ups, injuries and falls, was a great success.
Neil edged out Brian O’Neil at the last hole to win the Seniors Championship and the George Anderson Hunter Trophy. The trophy was kindly donated by George’s son John and we felt it fitting to ask John to present the trophy.
Douglas’s win over Charlie Love was a little easier but just as hard fought in order to win the “B” Division Seniors Championship and the Hugh J Lawrie Quaich which was kindly donated by Hugh’s son Alister who presented the trophy to Douglas.
Many thanks has to go to George Inglis and his team of Bob Bee and Bill Kent for all their work in the implementation and organisation of this championship which proved to be very popular with the match-play extremely competitive but, as always, played in such a friendly manner.
Well done all competitors this week.
Congratulations to Claire Hogg and David Rennie for a great display in the Ping Scottish Mixed Championship played last Monday over the Queens course, Gleneagles.
Claire and David scored 37 points for a top 20 finish and thoroughly enjoyed their day courtesy of Ping, Scottish Golf and Gleneagles. An outstanding score of 47 points by the team from East Kilbride Golf Club won the trophy.
Claire and David had such a good day that they have already offered to represent Liberton again next year, however, they will have to win the qualifying event, which I am sure will have a much bigger entry next time given the superb day of golf on offer, by a good enough score to be in the top forty from all clubs in Scotland.
Well done again!!
The SELGC annual outing was held on the afternoon of Saturday 16th September. Everyone got a drenching but the course held up and was very much admired by the visitors.
Liberton had a successful afternoon!
Scratch Winners : Susan Walker and Tommy Paterson (Liberton)
Handicap Winners : Sheila Keith and Brian O’Neill (Liberton)
Claire Hogg and David Rennie will be representing Liberton in the Ping Scottish Mixed Championship on Monday 18th September at Gleneagles.
Claire and David qualified at Liberton in July with a superb stableford score of 40 points which placed them eighth out of the forty qualifying places available to all clubs in Scotland.
We wish Claire, who is in her first year as a member of Liberton, and David, who is definitely not in his first year, all our best wishes on Monday over the Queens course, Gleneagles.
Just a reminder to all those players who have successfully qualified for the A& B Senior Championships that the knock-out stages start on Monday 18 September. The draws are currently on display in the main hall in the Clubhouse and in the Gents locker room. Please ensure you note your time of playing and we wish all qualifiers success in the competition.
