Holders into the quarter finals

With the current travel restrictions affecting our annual winter foursomes, an all South Ayrshire tie took place at Barassie today between holders Minnie Hamilton and Liz Fitzpatrick and past captain Liz Wilson and her partner Linda McDonald.

Minnie and Liz booked their place in the quarter finals with a 4 and 2 victory.

They may have a long wait to find out their opponents as ties have been put on hold until travelling between counties can resume.

Dundonald

 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
