TO SEE SOME PHOTOS OF THE JAMBOREE Click Here

Renfrewshire, the host county, won the West Division women’s inter-county team golf championship at East Renfrewshire Golf Club today
After beating defending champions Lanarkshire, then Dunbartonshire & Argyll, Renfrewshire completed a clean sweep over the three days by beating Ayrshire 5 ½-3 ½ .
In the morning foursomes we were down in all 3 matches at the 16th hole but with brilliant play and birdies the games were turned round and we were able to go into the afternoon singles with a 2.5 / 0.5 lead.
The supporters had to endure great stress when somewhere around the 13th hole we realised Renfrewshire were DOWN in all all 6 matches .
However, leading the field was Clare- Marie Carlton, who was 2 down with 2 to play against L Hendry and won the 17th and 18th to halve her match. Donna Jackson won her tie on the 18th, Lesley Robertson halved against Catherine Malcolm and then Gillian McGinlay had a superb  birdie down the last to secure a wonderful victory
Renfrewshire’s top player was Donna Jackson (Cochrane Castle) with 4 1/2pt out of a possible six. Donna was followed closely by Stirling University student Clare-Marie Carlton (Fereneze) with 4pt.
Dunbartonshire & Argyll finished runners-up by beating Lanarkshire 5-4 in the other last-day match.

Renfrewshire now go forward to the Scottish county finals at The Hirsel Golf Club, Coldstream from September 22 to 24. They have not won the Scottish title since 1987.
