22nd December 2005: Clare- Marie Carlton and Jennifer Jenkins keep the flag flying for Renfrewshire

 Jennifer Jenkins (Ralston) and Clare Marie Carlton (Fereneze)  who both received certificates from Renfrewshire County Council for Outstanding Sporting Achievements in 2005 are in the limelight again.
The University of Stirling is to send its six best female golfing students  to Florida next month to compete in two events on the prestigious Orange Blossom Tour.
Clare-Marie  joins Kylie Walker (Buchanan Castle), Dawn Dewar (Monifieth),  and English-born Alex Marshall, Olivia Briggs and Emma Tipping, on the trip.
The players will spend almost three weeks in Florida preparing for and competing in the Jones/Doherty Amateur Championship at Coral Ridge Country Club and the Women’s International four-ball event hosted by Orangebrook Country Club.
It is almost 14 years since Catriona Matthew, then a Stirling University golf scholarship student and now the most successful Scottish player ever to play on the LPGA Tour, made the same trip and brought home the Jones/Doherty Cup.Clare-Marie Carlton and Jennifer Jenkins

Jenny Jenkins (Ralston), the Scottish girls’ match-play champion in 1988, will be on double international duty next year. First she leads the Scotland squad at the European Under-21 junior women’s team championship at Golf Club de Pan, Netherlands from July to 15.
Scotland has only ever landed one female European team title at any level. That was in 1980 when the Scots were winners of the European Under-21s’ title in Austria.
Jenny will again skipper the Scotland team in the Under-18 girls’ home internationals at Portstewart, Northern Ireland from August 9 to 11.

Click on Gladys and Carol for a 5 minute trial video run with Gladys singing Carols at the Douglas Park Golf Club Lunch. Can you spot her. I think you may need to be on Broadband for it to work.
The picture should be fairly small. There is a small arrow on the RHS below the film and to the right of a control slider that if you click on should be on original size. If it is bigger than that the picture is blurred. I've heard that the sound can't get thro' quickly enough on dial up. The next one I try I will see if there is a way you can see it on both broadband and dial up


Also you made need
macromedia flash player installed to see the video.If you don't have it you can download it (Free) by following this link - Flash download

8th December 2005: SGU Under Review

The Scottish Golf Union, the governing body for the men's amateur game, is to undergo a review four years after its last restructure.
A three man independent review will be chaired by Craig Reedie,  husband of RLCGA member Rosemary (Ranfurly Castle).
Craig is a keen golfer, international Olympic Committee member and has also chaired  the British Olympic Association for the last 13 years
Two main issues to be considered are the make up and division of responsibilities of the SGU  board and executive council and the role of area associations and clubs.

7th December 2005: The Age of Technology !!!

LGU Press Release
LADIES’ GOLF UNION EMBRACES NEW TECHNOLOGY

This year the Ladies’ Golf Union introduced, for all championships, web-based online entries and encouraged by the success is proceeding with an updated online system for 2006.
Though the 2005 system was introduced late in the entry process, over 80% of all entries were received electronically.
Susan Simpson, Director of Championships of the LGU said: "We believe we are the only British-based golf governing body to have such a system in place. The adoption of the technology has been a huge asset to the players and administrators alike."
"It has dramatically cut down administration but more importantly has made our championship entry process much more accessible worldwide. It is interesting to note that in 2005, tournament entries overall rose by 10% and we believe this to be mainly down to our online system. We realistically expect over 90% of all entries next year to come through that route."
The LGU has always recognized the need to stay at the cutting edge of technology. Championship services now include automatic text messaging of tee times and cuts, WAP scoring to mobile phone handsets and online live scoring at all events.

At the moment we can publish our RLCGA results after a competition to the howdidido website plus also send the CSS, SSS, and winners to your mobile phone if set up.
