Monday 31st December 2007: New Year Message from Captain Christeen Finlayson to all RLCGA Members and from the Past Captains

The RLCGA 2007 County Team with Santa Hats

I hope you have all had a very enjoyable Christmas and getting set to enjoy the New Year festivities!
May I wish each one of you every success in your golfing aspirations for the coming year.

2007 was a year of enormous progress for some of our members and less so for others! 2008 is a great opportunity for us all to improve our golf and move forward. My own aspiration is to improve along with you all.

I hope we are blessed with good weather and good health in 2008 and that many of you will be available to play in our competitions and, of course, return great scores!

Every best wish to you all for 2008.

A little extra! On your behalf I would just like to say many thanks to our wonder woman webmaster, Carol, for all her efforts and time consumed in producing and maintaining our RLCGA website.
Best wishes and thanks to you Carol from us all.

Thursday 6th December 2007: Lauren Mackin is the Spanish Balearic Islands’ Girl Champion

16 Year Old RLCGA's Lauren Mackin (Ranfurly Castle) who lives on the island of Majorca with her parents, has won the Spanish Balearic Islands’ girls championship and the No 1 Under-18 ranking for 2007.
The Balearics consist of Majorca (20 golf courses), Menorca (one course), Ibiza (one course), Cabrera and Formentera. The Islands had close on 800,000 inhabitants at the last census.
Lauren, picture left from St Andrews Links Trust website, who did not take up golf until four or five years ago, has improved her handicap from seven to four this year.
After a good showing in the Ballearic Islands’ women’s championship – she lost out by one shot to experienced Spanish senior player Vicky Pertierra, Lauren came into her own in the girls’ championship last weekend.
At Alcanada Golf Club, rated the most difficult of Majorca’s courses, Lauren won the title with rounds of 75 and 77 for 155. She won by five strokes from Luna Sorbon, a highly-rated Spanish girl and the favourite for this title.
Last year Lauren played in the St Andrews girls’ open quaich (handicap) tournament and lost to Jessica Scott (Wanstead) by one hole in the final. Lauren was conceding nine strokes to her opponent.
Miss Mackin is a member at Son Muntaner golf course, a newer course than its immediate neighbour, the better-known Son Vida. Both are fairly close to Palma, the capital of Majorca.
+Renfrewshire thanks Annabel Kane for supplying the information for the above article. Annabel played with Lauren recently in Majorca and was most impressed. Remember the name, she says,


Saturday 1st December 2007: Past Captain Aileen gets a new knee, Karyn Burns is Caddying for Clare Queen and Do we have some Masterminds in RLCGA

Past RLCGA Captain Aileen WIlson had a knee replacement on Monday -

We all wish her a speedy and successful recovery and look forward to seeing her back on the golf course next year


Clare (The Carrick at Cameron House) and Karyn left today for Bangalore. Clare is the only Scottish Professional taking part in the Indian Ladies Masters (the first Ladies European Tour event on the sub-continent) from 5th to 8th December.

Amateurs, Kylie Walker (Buchanan Castle) and Michel Thomson (McDonald Ellon) will be joining Clare.
Good luck to you all.
The BBC has begun its search for contestants for the 2008 series of Mastermind. This time we are concentrating some of our efforts on attracting new women to the programme – many of whom are busy juggling so many other things in their life that they may not get to see some of our other attempts to recruit new contestants.

Considered by some to be the mother of all quiz shows, Mastermind’s first three cerebral champions were all women. However, after an early lead, the torrent of female victors ebbed away. The BBC production team are now recruiting for the 2008 series and we would like to hear from women applicants. There is no money – just the kudos of being recognised as the UK’s Mastermind – that and a Caithness Glass Trophy.

For more  the details and an application form go to the Mastermind Website
