Championship 2019

LIBERTON completed their Championship Finals for 2019 last Sunday. It may have been a day late but thank you to Brian Toal and his team for getting the course in an excellent playable condition after the two days of rain mid week.
Also thank you to the competitors for fitting in with the rescheduled timetable. Thanks to all the Referees who
officiated in all the Finals.
Congratulations to all competitors and the eventual winners.
To John Butler on retaining his title as Gents Champion for 2019. The runner up was Clark Munro. It was a well fought final over 36 holes, with John getting the upper hand earlier on but Clark coming back in the afternoon. John finally moved ahead again to win at the 16th 3 and 2.
The Gents B Division Championship was won by Lee Hamilton, and the runner up was Gordon Dickson.
Although Lee had the upper hand for most of the match Gordon put up a good fight in what was an enjoyable
game for both players.
The Ladies Silver Championship was won once again by Jill McLean, and runner up was Stephanie Sutherland. One of the best ladies finals at Liberton, spectators were treated so some excellent golf and a nail biting finish at the 17th.
The Ladies Bronze Championship was also won by a repeat winner, Gillian Fisher, who had the upper hand on the greens over runner up Rosalyn Marshall. Again another good final concluded 4/3 at the 15th hole.

Entry for the Family Foursomes is now open for members to play with eligible family members who need not be members of Liberton GC.

Please note that entry is very much open to members who would like to play with a Junior. Our Junior Measured Course with dedicated tees are now in play and it would be great to see some Junior / Old Yin teams.

Morison Millar Competition at Turnhouse on Thursday 4th July.

We are off at 10am and 10.30am and then 2.30pm and 3pm. The teams are:

Team A – Susan Walker (Capt) & Sheila Keith with Pat Stables & Karen Bell

Team B – Janet Collin (Capt) & Lindsey Rolland with Jo Robertson & Lynn Dalrymple.

Still looking for 2 caddies and all spectators welcome, there are quite a few holes close to the clubhouse, so it lends itself to easy watching. Good Luck Girls.

Ladies Strawberry Foursomes and Tea – Monday 17th June.

Just to advise that we have an odd number so if you are 60 plus, ok for 14 holes, then please let the Lady Captain know. The draw will be available on Sunday, first tee off is 1pm and we have about 18 couples signed up so far. If you just wish to come for the strawberry tea then, sign up in the locker room or tell the Lady Capt, tea starts at just after 3pm.
