Good luck Rachael

Good luck to Rachael Taylor who is participating in the British Women's championship at Dundonald Links which starts tomorrow.
She is a member of the Scottish Team at this Championship and has been selected for the Scottish Team for the European Team Championships.

Well Done Pamela

 Pamela Pretswell finished joint second in the Ladies European Tour  Tipsport Golf Masters in the Czech Republic.
Pamela, was happy with joint second place. She said: “I’m absolutely delighted. I played well all week, especially in the second round. I gave myself some chances out there and I’m happy with how I finished on 18. Everything was working nicely and there was a consistency that had been lacking a bit this year. It was good fun.”
