A great day was had by all for the first County Cycle Cumbrae Challenge.  Twenty four cyclists took part with every age group represented from teenagers to 20's to 30's to..................

We were ably supported by our President Nora McCrossin and our Treasurer Jill West who came along and made a day of it with their families and dogs!

The weather could not have been kinder and the conditions were perfect for our cycle.

A very quick stop at Fintry Bay before on in to Millport where we were welcomed by fellow county member Pat Wright who had kindly provided a superb afternoon tea for us all.  Sandwiches, cakes, tea, coffee and a comfort break were very well received.  A big thank you to Pat for her hard work and generosity.

While at Pats we had an early birthday celebration for Captain Sheila who is celebrating her birthday on Sunday before heading back to get the ferry home.

Thanks to everyone who took part and all the generous sponsors.

Pictures to follow.
Catherine Malcolm wins third Ayrshire ladies title 23 years after last win

Having beaten the top seed, Emma Hale (Troon Ladies), in the mornings semi-final Catherine Malcolm (Prestwick St Cuthbert) then defeated defending champion Linzi Allan (West Kilbride) to win her third Ayrshire ladies title at the 21st hole.

At the halfway mark Linzi was up by one hole and then went on to win the 10th with the first birdie of the game.  The next 2 holes were halved in pars but Catherine got one back at the short 13th when Linzi found some bunker trouble.  Catherine then squared the match at the 15th and got her first birdie of the day at 16 to go one up.  Halves at 17 meant Linzi had to win the 18th to take the game into extra holes which she duly did with a par 4.

The first extra hole was halved in pars then Catherine found trouble off the tee at the 20th and had to return to the teeing ground and play a second ball.  She then produced an amazing par by chipping in from the back of the green for a 5.  Linzi played the hole in a more conventional way for her 5 and a halved hole.

Catherine then went on to win the match with a steady par 4 at the 21st hole.
