El equipo de damas de Glenbervie puso en una gran actuación en el Annodata Golf Club Classic Finals en España, ganando su semifinal, pero lamentablemente perdiendo en la final.
For the non-Spanish speakers out there, the title and first paragraph above reads: "Very Well Done Glenbervie Ladies. The Glenbervie ladies team put in a great performance at the Annodata Golf Club Classic finals in Spain, winning their semi-final, but unfortunately losing out in the final."
Having won through 6 earlier rounds against teams from across the UK, the Glenbervie Ladies team travelled to the Montecastillo Golf Resort in Cadiz, Spain, to play in the finals of the Annodata Golf Club Classic. After two days of practice, the Glenbervie ladies took on and beat the Lambourne GC team in their semi-final. In the final, Glenbervie faced the ladies from the Links GC in Newmarket. The first two matches resulted in 1 win each, before Links GC went on to win the remaining three matches. These were close affairs, however, with one match finishing at the 17th and the other two going the full distance.
What a superb performance to get all the way to the final of a UK-wide competition. Everyone at Glenbervie should be very proud of what these ladies have acheived. Congratulations to the team members that played in Spain (shown below) - Fiona Ross, Margaret Tough, Helen Goodwin, Alison Goodwin, Elizabeth Goodwin - and to those other ladies who played in the earlier rounds.
Many congratulations to Linda Allan who has been selected to represent the Scottish Senior Ladies team in two major forthcoming competitions.

Good luck to Linda and the rest of the Scottish team in these important competitions. We will be keeping an eye out for the results.

Well the club 2018 finals day was again blessed with fantastic weather, for the third year running ! (Long may this trend continue). With the course also in fantastic condition, the setting was perfect for all our finalists. See the flyer below for the results of all the finals played on the day, along with a photograph of our gents and ladies champions alongside our club chairman and lady captain.
It was a double triumph for Tommy Wilson in the gents championship qualifying event played over 36 holes on Saturday 9th June. With the course a little "fiery" from the recent spell of dry weather, low scores were at a premium, with both rounds posting a CSS of 72 (one more than the SSS). However, with exceptional rounds of 72 (net 70) and 71 (net 69), Tommy won both the Millar of Falkirk and Lindsay Cooper trophies for lowest gross and lowest net scores.
Spare a thought, however, for Ross Kane who missed out on both trophies by the narrowest a margins - a better 2nd round for Tommy. Congratulations Tommy on your success and commiserations to Ross. And good luck to the two of you (and all the other 14 qualifiers) in the championship matchplay stage.
Congratulations to Glenbervie member Linda Allan for making it through to the matchplay stage of the 2018 Scottish Women’s amateur championship. Played over Elie golf course, the top 32 players after two strokeplay rounds made it through to the matchplay stage of the competition. With rounds of 78 and 77, Linda qualified from a high-quality field. In her subsequent first round match, Linda lost 3&1 to Gemma Batty of West Linton golf club, a very credible performance against the woman who went all the way to win the championship. Very well done Linda.
The Glenbervie gents team successfully retained the Stirlingshire County team matchplay championship for the 7th time in 8 years! This years team pool consisted of Mark Hislop, Graeme Robertson, Colin Mundie, Craig Hughes, Peter Maxwell and Ross Kane, with the selected 4 playing 2 ball foursomes. This year saw all team members contributing at some point over the four rounds played.
Congratulations to the team on yet another great win! (Shown below are 4 of the team with the championship trophy).
