Sarah Ramsay wins second County Championship

The curtain is now down on the 2024 County Championship at Trump Turnberry.

Audrey Thompson (Loudoun) was the first to book her place with a win over Lorna Ronnie (Barassie). The other semi final went to the 17th hole where Sarah Ramsay (West Kilbride) beat Pauline Patrick (Irvine)

The final was contested in a great manner by the 2 finalists, the sun came out and it was pleasantly warm compared to the previous 2 days!!

Audrey took the first hole then the next 3 holes were halved with Audrey taking the 5th to go 2 up. Sarah then took the next 4 holes to reach the turn 2 up. The next 3 holes were halved before Sarah found bunker trouble on 13 which took it back to one hole. A birdie at 14 restored Sarah's 2 hole lead, a half on 15 then a par on 16 was enough for Audrey to close the gap. A birdie from Sarah on 17 sealed a 2&1 win and a second County Championship for Sarah who won at Prestwick in 2022.

Many congratulations to both finalists and thanks to all those who came out to support.
