Scottish Girls Open

Following on from a good start to the season where Louise Duncan (West Kilbride) finished in 15th place in the Scottish Girls' Open at Monifieth last month, an event which attracted a huge number of talented European players, Louise was the winner in another big event at the weekend. Playing in the annual 72 hole Open International Scratch Championship for boys and girls aged 18 or under at Fairhaven Golf Club in Lancashire, Louise's rounds of 73, 71, 75 and 73 for a total of 292 won the girls' event by 2 strokes. If that doesn't make her enough of a legend, this is the first time a Scottish girl has won this event! Many congratulations Louise! 

Girls Under 16's Championship

Players from 11 different countries teed up for the inaugural Girls' Under 16's Open Championship run by the R & A.   Played over Fulford near York, Rachel Foster (Prestwick St. Nicholas) had two excellent rounds of 77 and 75, marred only by an 85 in round 2.   The CSS for the three rounds was 73, 73, 74.   Rachel finished a very creditable 29th out of a field of 90 very talented girls.  Scottish Girls' 2017 champion Hannah Darling came from behind to win the event on 218.   Well done Rachel!

Lorna Ronnie ALCGA 2018 Champion!

It was a very close final this afternoon between Lorna Ronnie and Alex 
Glennie.

Lorna took a 3 hole lead after 14 holes but Alex pulled 2 holes back to stand on the 18th tee one down.  A great approach shot to the green meant she was in with a chance of taking the match to the 19th hole but the putt didn't drop.

Congratulations to Lorna who played some great golf all week to win her first Ayrshire County Championship.

Thanks to all those who came along to support.
