Winter Foursomes Final

The final of the Winter Foursomes took place at Kilmarnock Barassie Golf Club on Sunday, 13 March, on a lovely Spring day.

The winners, of the all Barassie final, were Helen McGibbon and Fiona Brawley with the match going to the 19th hole.

Joanne Sharp and Helen Love took an early lead going one up with the match continuing in the usual match play fashion with never much in it.

Sharp and Love had gone one up but the match was squared at the 16th and the remaining holes were halved, taking it up the 19th where Fiona Brawley sank the winning putt.

Thanks to Liz Wilson for the report

Girls' Friendly Match 28th of February

Ayrshire Girls were off to Lanark for their friendly match against Lanarkshire on Sunday.   It was a beautiful sunny morning all the way up the clyde valley but on reaching the carpark the course was shrouded in mist and the course closed!   However, over the next 45 minutes, the mist started to lift, the sun shone through and, by 12 o'clock the scheduled tee off time, it was perfect!   The result was a very friendly halved match with two wins and two losses.   The standard of golf was very good considering the winter weather.....the girls clearly have all been working hard on the practice ranges.   Playing for Ayrshire were Rachel Foster (Turnberry), Claire McLaughlin (West Kilbride), Katy Hill (Prestwick St. Cuthbert's) and Gemma Paton (Loudoun).   Well done girls!
