Two Ayrshire girls won trophies today at West Kilbride Girls' Open. Louise Duncansuccessfully defended the Nancy Chisholm Trophy for the best scratch score, with an excellent round of 76 on a bright sunny afternoon, but with a very strong northerly wind making scoring conditions very difficult. Cristina McCracken (Troon Ladies) won the Kandy Bar Cup for the best nett score 104 (28) 76 bih. Well done girls 😊
Samantha McKay (Loudoun Gowf Club) was a double winner on Sunday at Prestwick St. Cuthbert's. Claire McLaughlin (West Kilbride) and Samantha both returned scores of 81. The girls were still locked together on the better inward half, and the last 6 holes, but Samantha clinched the trophy having the better last 3 holes to become County Junior Champion for 2018. Playing off 14 handicap Samantha had the best nett of the day to win the St. Nicholas Trophy.
