Alex Glennie

4th July

Alex Glennie (Kilmarnock Barassie) lost 3 and 1 in the final of the
Scottish Senior Ladies' Amateur Championship at Elgin against the top
qualifier Alison Bartlett of Royal Dornoch
Very well done to Alex on her achievements this week.


Past Captain and Past County Champion Alex Glennie from Kilmarnock Barassie has made it through to the match play final of this years Scottish Senior Ladies Amateur Championship at Elgin.  This morning she beat Fiona De Vries by 2&1 and this afternoon plays top qualifier Alison Bartlett from Royal Dornoch.

Alison beat Kathleen Sutherland this morning by one hole and is looking to make the double having already won the stroke play title this week.
3rd July 2014
Mixed results for Ayrshire in todays match play stages of the Ladies Senior Championship at Elgin.

Liz and Alex won their first round ties this morning at the 17th hole with Liz wining 2&1 and Alex 3&1.

In the afternoon Liz faced a tough opponent in last years runner up from the Match play stages, Kathleen Sutherland, from Montrose. Unfortunately Liz lost by 4&2.

Alex faced Anne Brownie from Gullane and successfully won her way through to the semi-finals by 2 holes, another close game. Alex made the semi-final in 2011 and she will be hoping to go further this time but will have a tough game in tomorrows semi against Fiona De Vries from St Rule.

Good luck to Alex for tomorrow and hard lines to Liz but a great tournament for her.


2nd July 2014
Continued success for Ayrshire on the golf links as our own Vice Captain, Liz Keohone, and Past Captain, Alex Glennie, have both qualified for the match play stages of the competition which is being held at Elgin this week.

Both posted identical scores in the stroke play with 77's in round one and 79's in round two, with a Par of 74 that was great scoring from them both. In fact, they finished tied 2nd in the stroke play, only 2 strokes behind the winner Alison Bartlett from Royal Dornoch. In a field of 91 players the girls have really done us proud.

Sixteen players go through to the match play which starts tomorrow morning. Liz will face another West golfer, Sheena McDonald from Milngavie and Alex plays Linda Grieve from Musselburgh.

Good luck to both.

Ladies British Amateur Championship
Royal St Georges Golf

Day 2
After qualifying for the match play stages Connie was up against it this morning when she was drawn to play the 3rd place qualifier, Luna Sobron from Spain. Unfortunately Connie lost 3&2 this morning but hopefully she has enjoyed the experience and should be proud of getting through to the match play in a high class field of competitors.

The only Scot to survive the first round match play was Gemma Dryburgh from Beaconsfield

Day 1
It wasn't until all the second round scores were in this evening that we learned Connie Jaffrey has qualified for the Matchplay stages of the Championship. At one point it looked like she might have missed out by one shot and at times it looked like there may be a play off for the final places.

Another great achievement for Connie who joins fellow Scots Lauren Whyte (St Regulus), Gemma Dryburgh (Beaconsfield), Ailsa Summers (Carnoustie) and Alyson McKechin (Elderslie) in the knock out stages which begin tomorrow morning.

Good luck Connie
