in the Daily Mail Foursomes Final
Buick and Kay Murray Whitecraigs won through to the final of

Interestingly, about 1800 Ladies Clubs from the UK and Ireland had
entered this competition.
The practice round was played in perfect weather on a course that was
both parkland and moorland with water features creating interesting
Unfortunately come Monday we were knocked out by the eventual winners
Cowdray Park who were off 1 and 6 and
definitely had age on their side being 17 and 32 !!
Sadly too, we didn't bring home any champagne from the two following
competitions on the Northern Course which was not such an interesting
Everyone was very friendly and the Daily Mail looked after us
As we have won this years summer foursomes we hope again to be forwaed
by the club and try to qualify again for the 2006 final which will be at
Dalmahoy. However, although it has had a very expensive
upgrading it won't have quite the same appeal.
Sincerest thanks to the many friends and family who supported us -- we
did appreciate it and although it was all a great experience we were
only sorry we didn't do better.

Dalton from Carlow finished 97th and 98th respectively with totals of
251 and 252.

12th October 2005 : Whitecraigs celebrate winning
the 3rd Division of the Greenlees Trophy in their Centenary Year and Good
Luck to Elspeth and Kay
Little (Whitecraigs) current Greenlees
secretary thought it would be nice to have a
dinner where everyone who had ever played in the Greenlees team
could come along. So they had 51 out of a
possible 70 at the dinner. Jess MacKenzie
who had played in 1953 and is the oldest surviving
Greenlees secretary (at
their club) was one of the speakers and
Eileen Gibb, who has been a team member and Greenlees
secretary twice. Jess
recounted tales of matches of a different era which were funny and
Eileen told tales of some of her
matches which as you can imagine were also humorous!
There were quite a few of the "old brigade" there - all team
members at about the same as Jess.
All in all, I've been told it was a very good night and everyone enjoyed
