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 brisk wind!

8 played in the 10 hole competition with Hannah King of 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.
