Snow stops play

The Qualifying rounds for the Championship and Bronze Championship had to be abandoned today because the course became unplayable due to snow.
All of those in the Championship who are able to play in the Matchplay rounds had completed 18 holes and so the qualifiers have been decided over 18 holes.
As many of those in the Bronze Championship were unable to complete their round the qualifiers have been decided over 12 holes.
As the competition was abandoned it will be reduction only but the scores will still count for handicap with the CSS being equal to the SS (73).
The leading qualifier in the Championship was Susan Wood with a level par 73.

Death of Past President and Past Captain Dor Rutherford

It is with sadness that I announce the death of Dor Rutherford, a much loved and respected Honorary Member of the County.
Dor was Captain in 1971-1973 and President from 1999-2004. Dor, a member of Lenzie Golf Club, was a great supporter of the County, attending all Championships and Jamborees up until 4 years ago when her health prevented her from doing so and when she took up residence in a care home.
We send our sympathy to her family. 
Dor's funeral will take place on Monday 27 April at 11.00am at Daldowie Crematorium.
