This event again took
place at Whitecraigs Golf Club and
38 girls took part this year, which was down on previous years for some
reason. The weather was reasonable kind-just a few heavy showers then a

Renfrewshire winning with 37 points. Heather Conejo of
Williamwood was 2nd with 36 points and the Briggs Girls
3rd equal with 34 points.

Williamwood winning with 16 points and Linsey Stevenson of
Whitecraigs coming 2nd with 15 points.
13 played in the Par 3 strokeplay competition with Laura Wilson
of Cowglen winning with a score of 33 and Eilidh Foster, also
Cowglen coming 2nd scoring 34.Their putting competition was
won by Ailsa Thomson of Portpatrick with 41 putts.
We had some novelty competitions as well so hopefully most of the girls
went home with a prize.
Thank you to all who helped on the day -walkers, scorers etc – but a
very special thank you to Beth and Christeen who ran the after as
I was playing elsewhere.
