Message from Eilidh - it was Megan that had the most points !!

It was Megan who had 5 1/2 points out of 6.
 I had 5 out of 6 I think someone has mixed up the Briggs sisters.
Megan is still getting over people at Inchmarlo thinking she was the younger sister.

Well she is so small !!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info Eilidh --- and Well done to you both  -- Brilliant for Renfrewshire

Well done to the Renfrewshire Team

Congratulations to our Team on winning the F.J. Morison Trophy awarded to the runners-up at the Scottish County Finals.

The Team played with their heart and soul and all contributed to our points total. It was a tense finish as we waited for the result between Perth & Kinross and Fife knowing there was a possibility our name could be on The Shield. Our congratulations go to the Fife County Team on becoming the Scottish County Champions. Well deserved.

Special mention must go to Donna who celebrated 25 years of success and service to our Team. Donna, here's to the next 25!

Well done to Alyson on her winning debut. We have no doubt this will be the first of many.

Thanks to everyone who sent us good wishes before we set off to do battle and our grateful thanks to caddies and supporters who travelled far and gave of their valueable time. You do make a difference and we couldn't have done it without you.

Here's to next year! Well done girls!

Eilidh's dash down south to play in the school's Internationals

Renfrewshire's teenager Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) was so determined to play for Scotland in Monday's annual schools golf international against England at Royal Lytham & St Anne's Golf Club, that her Dad whisked her last night from Aberdeenshire to the Lancashire venue - a drive of some six hours.
Eilidh, a 15-year-old pupil at Gryffe High School, Johnstone, played for Renfrewshire in the Scottish women's county championship finals at the Inchmarlo Golf Resort, Banchory from Friday until the three-day programme ended in the early evening today.
Then the Briggs - Eilidh's older sister Megan, a Scotland cap - was also playing for Renfrewshire, set off for Royal Lytham & St Annes.
+ Megan Briggs was the joint MVP in the County Finals  with 51/2pt out of 6 and sister Eilidh Briggs was the second  MVP (Most Valuable Player) in the county finals with 5 pt out of 6
Megan matched  Fiona Hastie's points total for title-winners Fife

Renfrewshire, who beat Borders 7-2 in their final match, finished runners-up.
