RLCGA Caddies - Click to enlarge Some of the caddies at lunch -- Click to enlarge

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members who came along to support our victorious team. There is nothing more uplifting that seeing our "Renfrewshire Pink" dotted along the fairways, around the greens and through the trees.

It goes without saying the players are indebted to their loyal caddies - they are vital in three days of competition. It was also so nice to see how impressed the caddies were with the high standard of golf and how much they enjoyed getting to know the girls. Everyone agrees they are a great bunch of girls!

Captain May Hughes, Secretary Jean Macintyre and all the Lanarkshire officials organised and ran a most efficient and happy Centenary Jamboree (the fond name for the West Division Inter-County Matches). They tick all the boxes 100% and much more! The weather, the course, the clubhouse, the staff - everything was first class.

West of Scotland Secretary, Isabel Crawford, relaxed the players and entertained all the spectators with her light hearted banter on the first tee and all the games were played with friendly rivalry.

In all, a very happy and successful Centenary Jamboree.

Well played, girls. Renfrewshire is very proud of you.

The Renfrewshire Team, which will be announced in due course, will head for The Scottish County Finals at Baberton Golf Club, Edinburgh, from Friday 18th to Sunday, 20th September. Please enter this date in your diary now and if you are interested in caddying please e-mail Vice Captain Trish.

The 2010 West Division Inter-County Matches will take place at Kilmacolm Golf Club from 14th to 16th June.
