Newbattle Ladies Open

The day dawned grey and wet, but by competition start, the clouds had risen and the drizzle had
slackened then shortly petered out to leave a dry, close day for most of the competitors.

The greenkeeping staff were out adding their final touches and there were many complimentary
comments from the players on their return. They thought the course was looking fantastic and the
greens were fabulous, though tricky and fast with only two players succeeding with a two.

The Pro Shop was busy with competition start preparations and attracting sales from the new ladies’
stock table. Our volunteers and starters kept things moving and the in-house staff were kept busy
throughout the day with a variety of refreshments. Thank you for all your attention to everyone.

A variety of golf clubs were represented with an outing from Melrose. Everybody enjoyed
themselves both on and off the course with many raffle prizes awarded. This year we are collecting
for the Gorebridge Foodbank and Alzheimer’s Scotland (East and Midlothian) and raised £232 today.

There are 12 handicap prizes, 4 scratch prizes together with spot prizes at specific holes, a Veterans
prize and a Best Newbattle prize. Individuals will be contacted and vouchers will be sent out in the
next day or two.

And Here are the results….
