Junior Girls Championship

Check out the Junior page for details of this years Junior Championship


 Fantastic turn out at Dundonald on Tuesday with 78 ladies taking part.

Due to the current situation it was a change from the norm with a fun fourball format which seemed to be enjoyed by all.

The winning team were Linda McDonald (Barassie), Susan McKenzie (Balfron), Shirley Morran (Barassie) and Audrey Thompson (Loudoun) scoring 62 points. Coming second, on the better last 6, were June Dempster (St Nicholas), Julia Henderson (Troon Ladies), Linda Nairn (St Nicholas) and Lisa Neilson (Barassie) scoring 59 points.

We also had teams of 3 with the best score of 49 coming from Katie Hodge (St Nicholas), Greta Smith (Ardeer) and Janette Stewart (Barassie)

Well done ladies

It was lovely to see our Honorary President Nancy Chisholm there chatting with the members as they went through the turn or as they came off the 18th.

Thanks to Dundonald and to Helen and Sheila for all their organisation

Womens Amateur 2020

Hazel MacGarvie (Royal Troon) was one of 12 Scots in the field at the recent Womens Amateur championship at West Lancashire.

The stroke play was reduced to one round and Hazel shot a one over par 73 to qualify in 16th place for the match play.

Unfortunately Hazel lost out in the first round of the match play to England's Thalia Kirby losing by 2&1.

The championship was won by Aline Krauter from Germany

Barassie pairing retain winter foursomes title

L to R - Liz Fitzpatrick, Minnie Hamilton, Gillian Pollock and Irene Papworth

A dry but blustery day for the delayed final of this years Winter Foursomes.

It was a close match for most of the front 9 then Liz and Minnie built up a lead after some very tidy play around the greens. 

There was a comeback from Gillian and Irene winning the 13th and 14th but the Barassie girls then won 15 and the match.

Congratulations girls and thanks to Jocelyn Faris (Secretary) for photographs and report.

Winter Foursomes Final

For obvious reasons we had to postpone the final of our Winter Foursomes which was due to be played in March! This is now being played tomorrow at West Kilbride Golf Club, tee off 1350. The final will be contested between the holders Marion Hamilton and Liz Fitzpatrick (Barassie) and Irene Papworth and Gillian Pollock (Skelmorlie) Conditions should certainly be different than expected for a winter tie, lets hope that the sun shines and the golf is good. The best of luck to all involved, spectators/supporters are very welcome.

Margaret MacGregor

In an update to the earlier post about the sad death of Margaret MacGregor (Barassie) I have been notified that her funeral will be on Thursday 2 July.

Obviously, under the current circumstances, many people who would have attended will be unable to do so.  The cortege will be leaving Margaret's home at 1.10pm and will slow down on the stretch of beach on the A78 between Ardrossan and and Seamill.

The family have suggested that those who wish to pay their respects should stand on the path between the 2 car parks on that stretch as the cortege passes.

Alternatively, you would be welcome to stand outside the Clyde Coast and Garnock Valley Crematorium where the service will be held at 2pm.


Congratulations to Freya Russell (Royal Troon) on receiving the South Ayrshire Council Active Schools award for Sports Performer of the Year.
