Ayrshire Girls' St. Nicholas Trophy

9 girls competed for the St. Nicholas Trophy yesterday at Barassie Links.   Playing conditions were exceptionally difficult with cross wind speeds of 40+.   However, this did not deter Alison Malcolm (Prestwick St. Cuthbert) who had an excellent round of golf.  Her nett 78 (SSS 76) won by 6 shots over West Kilbride's Claire McLaughlin.

Silver:   1st    Alison Malcolm        92 (14) 78
              2nd  Claire McLaughlin    95 (11) 84

Bronze:  1st    Zara Mason (Kirkudbright)      117 (30)  87
                2nd  Rebecca Hale (Troon Ladies)   120 (31) 89

Alison's scratch 92 won the prize in the qualifier for the Telegraph Junior Golf competition, and as scratch winner on the day will go forward to Scottish Golf's Junior Champion of Champions at the Dukes on 22nd October.

Pre-handicap girls Katie Ronnie (Barassie) and Kirsty Shaw (Dalmilling) played 9 holes, Katie finishing just ahead of Kirsty.
