Renfrewshire Girls Win against Lanarkshire

Renfrewshire Girls had a successful match against Lanarkshire.

On Sunday 3rd June, Renfrewshire Girls played Lanarkshire at Cambuslang Golf Club on a very damp, thundery day. This 9 hole course was in perfect order and was a very good venue for a girls' match Being a strange course to all the girls, it was ideal to play the 9 holes twice rather than 18 new ones.The plan was to play foursomes to practise for the Kennedy Salver. (1 game was a singles game as Renfrewshire could only field 7 players)


(Renfrewshire girls first)
Heather Conejo beat Jennifer Black -3 and 2
Catherine Conejo & Alyson McKechin halved with Jennifer Gemmell and Abigail Gliksten
Lesley Cosh and Natasha Qayum beat Nicola McLuckie and Kirsty Hogg -6 and 4
Alison Howie and Heather Howie lost to Emma Caddow and Nicole Benson -6and 5

Our thanks go to Margaret Noblett for organising the game and Cambuslang GC for the courtesy of the course.
