I felt it was appropriate today to post a wee "blog" this morning given it was the day that we would all have been meeting up at St Nicholas to play in our first event of the year, the County Championship.

Ironically, in a year when we are unable to play, the weather has chosen to be glorious!! Not something that can be said for Championships in recent years. Prestwick springs to mind when it was particularly hellish but the support of our members is to be applauded as you all battled on and supported the event.

Last year was pretty cold and windy on the first day but the sun shone for the final contested by Louise Duncan, West Kilbride and Audrey Thompson, Loudoun in the beautiful setting of the Robert the Bruce Course at Turnberry.

It was a very sporting final with Louise claiming her first Ayrshire County Championship title

Despite the golf courses being closed I hope you are all practicing at home, where possible, for when they open up again. Your committee have been contesting putting and chipping challenges via Whats App, no breakages so far!

Stay safe and look forward to seeing you all again when we can
