Senior Ladies Home Internationals at Tramore – by Helen Faulds

Thanks to Past Vets Captain Helen Faulds who as Captain led the team representing Scotland at the Senior Ladies Home Internationals at Tramore Golf Club recently and has sent this report of their time there.

Senior Ladies Home Internationals from Tramore G C in County Waterford, Southern Ireland.
The weather as you probably read was terrible—mist and fog causing numerous suspensions in play and torrential rain on the last day. I think we were the only part of the whole world not basking in sunshine last week. In fact it was glorious sunshine just 10 miles away.
The Scottish team lost narrowly to Ireland on the first day, were thumped by England on day 2 and beat Wales on day 3 to finish in 3rd place. I thought the girls showed a lot of grit and determination in poor weather conditions and team spirit was always good.
Tramore GC could not have done more for us. They had 60 volunteers who either caddied, ball spotted or acted as scorers with each game. The club welcomed us with open arms –even giving each player and captain a lovely Waterford crystal memento of the occasion. I think we all left Ireland with very special memories.

A truly memorable occasion for Helen and her Team! Next year the venue for the Senior Ladies is at Elie, we wish them luck and good weather – and hopefully some of us will make the journey through to Fife to support the team.
