Reaching the semi-final of the prestigious Daily Mail Womens’ Foursomes finals at Dalmahoy Golf Club recently was “the experience of a lifetime” for St Medan lady members Liz Maiden and Evelyn McLellan.

In the end the determined duo were just beaten in the semi by the eventual winners.

Evelyn told The Galloway Gazette: “On the Sunday we had a practice day and on the Monday morning we won our first game against ladies from Bigbury Golf Club, South Devon. In the afternoon we took on a mother and daughter from Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club and had to give them nine strokes. We finally got the better of them after 19 holes!

“In the semi final we met two ladies from Northamptonshire County Golf Club who went on the win it after beating us.

“The whole competition at Dalmahoy was very, very well organised by the Daily Mail. We must give credit to them as it was done to perfection and we were very well treated.

“Both Liz and I have said it was the experience of a lifetime.”
