Junior Coaching at Mearns Golf Academy

12 Juniors and some seniors were at Mearns Castle Golf Academy today for a coaching session. Unfortunately due to the pouring rain the arranged game on the 9 hole course was unable to take place.

However chipping practice and putting followed by lunch was the
order of the day. Alyson McGinnigle's Team of Lucy
Bannerman, Natasha Qayum and Nicky Wilson
were the winners of
all the fun competitions

RLCGA Ladies Training Squad

The Ladies Training Squad had an excellent morning's coaching with Karyn Burns at the Mearns Golf Academy on Sunday morning. The emphasis was on the short game and this was followed by 8 of the girls playing a friendly match over 9 holes against the Renfrewshire Boys. It was a very close contest with the honours just going to the boys.

The Four Seasons Vilamoura Stableford Classic

Bobby Faulds played steady golf today over Pinhal Golf Course in the Algarve today. Despite getting no points at the last, his 33 points was enough to lift the trophy for the 1st time in more than 10 attempts. Gordon Fell was runner up despite not scoring at the last 2 holes. Somebody stole his ball at the 17th and 18th !!
On the distaff side Carol and Helen scored the same number of points . We are not telling you what !
We however finished a point outside the prizelist.
This was all played in glorious sunshine.
We would like to recommend Quinta de Ria which we played yesterday . It was in magnificent condition and a tough test for all.
Cheers from your roving reporter Carol !!
