Marshals Needed

The Ladies Scottish Open at Dundonald Links starting on the 27th July will be one of the highest profile Ladies events ever held in Scotland outside of the Majors.

 With prize money trebled from last year to 1.5 million Euros and sponsored jointly by The LPGA and The LET it is expected to attract 25 of the top 30 players from these tours.
Dundonald Links was designed by Kyle Phillips who also completed the Links at Kingsbarns where the week following the Scottish the British Ladies will be held. An ideal preparation which will have a great appeal to many of the players.
Marshals are required where they will be operating in one of 9 zones covering greens and tees giving an opportunity to see the players at close hand. Ideally volunteers should be available for at least 3 playing days of the event.
I have attached to this message a registration form. Should any further information be required please contact;
Alex Littlejohn The Chief Marshal  
 We are well short of marshals for this event and it will be such a pity if it cannot be marshalled properly.  At the moment I am more than 120 marshals short of what I require.
Here is a list of the top 10 Ladies who are playing.
7 of the world’s top 10 players including (list below)
26 of the top 50
51 of the top 100
 Players from 30 Nationalities
Rolex Ranking - 19/6/17

Our own Honorary Member, Pamela Pretswell will be Competing

Well done Molly

Many congratulations to Molly Richmond, Strathaven, who is through to the Quarter Finals of the Scottish Women's Championship at Royal Aberdeen GC. 
Molly qualified in last place but beat the top qualifier, Chloe Goadby ,4 &3. She then unfortunately  met her fellow Lanarkshire member Susan Wood, Drumpellier, in the second round. Susan had had a good 4&3 victory against Karen Ferguson Sneddon in the first round.
Molly was the 3&2 winner and goes on to play Jillian Farrell, Cardross,  a fellow Scottish Girl Internationalist in the Quarter Final tomorrow. We wish her well. 
Ruth Hunter, Lanark, qualified for the Clark Rosebowl but lost by 1 hole to Lorna McClymont, Milngavie.
