New “Family Foursomes” – Sunday 8th July from 1pm

The format of the “Family Foursomes” competition has been changed this year in an attempt to open up the event to more members.

Participation in this once popular event has over many years dwindled to only a very few members. One reason may be the low number of family members who are both Liberton GC members.

To address this and to hopefully reinvigorate this competition the format will be a one round, pairs, best-ball stableford competition which members of Liberton GC can play with a close family member who is either a member of Liberton or another club and who hold a national handicap. Handicap allowance for the competition will be ¾ each player.

Should you wish to play for the Anderson Trophy in what we hope will be a very popular event you can enter by way of our website, please go to the competitions page, click on “Enter a Competition”, login to BRS and click the link to the competition. Please note that although you will be entering against a time, a draw will be made and your time will likely change.

Competition entry opens Thursday 21st June at 7pm.

 Last years winners, Brian O’Neil and Lee Hamilton

Strawberry Tea, Senior Ladies

The Strawberry Tea took place on Monday, 19th June. We had a great turnout and it was lovely to be joined by seven senior ladies who no longer play golf. The strawberries were gorgeous! A special thank you to the caterers for the beautiful presentation of the dining room and the strawberry dishes.

The golf was good too! Winners – Marjorie Thomas and Margaret Hogarth – Well done ladies…

Ladies Outing to Ladybank

Ladies Outing to Ladybank

Sunday, 10th June 2018

Thirty Liberton Ladies gathered at 9:00am to travel to Fife for the annual outing. This year we went to Ladybank, a long, parklands course in North Fife. The weather was kind to us and the sun even shone for some of the time.

As always, a great day was had by all. It was the Ladybank Ladies open and we had ten tee times for the Tri-am. This was followed up with an excellent lunch and back home on the bus.

Here are a selection of our photos…..

LYNX DEMO AND EXHIBITION DAY

I would like to thank all the members who came out for the Lynx Exhibition and Demo Day on Friday 8th June.

I am sure you all enjoyed walking the course and watching Becky Brewerton playing a few holes, Becky is a current European tour player and Solheim Cup team member, it was great fun watching her play and taking time out to explain her thoughts and practices from everything from tee shots to putting.

I would like also to thank the Lynx team of Graham Laird and Andy Sumner for their help on the day and equipment advice to the members.

Finally i would like to thank Brian Toall and his staff for their patience and I can pass on that Becky loved the day and that the greens and course conditions were the best she’s played on all year.

Now i look forward to seeing you up at the club and practising.
