Murcar Links meet Kilmacolm
in last 16 of Mail on Sunday
Ladies Classic

Murcar Links are through the the eighth round of the Mail on Sunday Ladies Classic ( and will now play Kilmacolm in the next round which makes it the last 16.
Either Murcar Links or Kilmacolm will go forward to the quarter-finals at Manchester in September.
"The semi-finalists and finalists get a week in the sun, I think," said Murcar Links player and Aberdeenshire county treasurer Laura McLardy, pictured right (Cal Carson Golf Agency image) competing in this year's Scottish women's championship at Lossiemouth.
The Murcar Links line-up includes Donna Pocock, the Aberdeenshire county champion. She is also the club champion.
Murcar Links previously reached the sixth round in 2004, when the format was such that four players out of a named pool of six competed.
"We lost 4-0 at Fortrose & Rosemarkie on that occasion. In 2005 we also reached around the sixth round, losing 3-2 to Westhill Golf Club (Aberdeenshire). So we've done OK in the past, without making it to the latter stages," said Laura.
"We have a good group of golfers to choose from. Both this year and last year Murcar Links provided half of the Aberdeenshire county team, and three of these players (myself, Donna and Carol Wilson) are regular members of the Mail on Sunday team.
"Carol's mother Pat is the current chairman of the Scottish Ladies Golf Association, and is also a regular member of our team."
In the match against Dunkeld Murcar Links' players were Laura McLardy, Pat Wilson, Carol Wilson, Susan Murray and Donna Pocock.
"After being successful on August 2, four of our team (Pat didn't play) then went on to win the Aberdeenshire county inter-club double foursomes competition at Inchmarlo."
Current handicaps of our players competing in this competition are:
Donna Pocock - 2
Carol Wilson - 3
Laura McLardy - 3
Sammy Leslie - 5
Susan Murray - 6
Pat Wilson - 7
Kathleen Thomson - 10
Shona Anderson - 12
Mary Robinson - 12
+++So there's the lowdown on Murcar Links. If Kilmacolm Ladies would like to E-mail Colin@Scottishgolfview with some information about their players, we'd be delighted to publish it.
