Just to let you know I had the privilege of refereeing the Haggs Castle GC today.
The final was between Jinty Rodger and Lesley Forsyth of Williamwood and Morag Little and Thea Morgan of Whitecraigs.
It was a super day weather wise although bitterly cold.
The match was played in the best spirit and for 12 holes there was no more than 1 hole in the match.
After 9 holes the match was all square.
At the 14th hole Jinty and Lesley were 3 up. The 15th was won by Morag and Thea , the 16th all square making Jinty and Lesley dormie 2
Two good drives at the 17th with Morag's fabulous second shot just catching the bunker.. Jinty's second shot was superb just short of the green. Thea's shot from the bunker was excellent but so was Lesley's chip. The hole was halved giving Jinty and Lesley a 2/1 victory.
Supporters from Whitecraigs and Williamwood followed the match but the cold got to them and at the end only President Eileen Gibb, Past Captain Aileen Wilson were the only spectators left .
Jinty and Lesley were worthy winners but Morag and Thea will definitely be winners soon.
Eileen Gibb kindly presented the salvers to the two winners.

Message from Sheila Robson from Whitecraigs:
I  would like to rectify  Jennifer’s statement that the cold got to us spectators during the Foursomes final at Haggs on Friday.    Not at all the case, Whitecraigs ladies are made of sterner stuff than letting a little cold interfere while supporting their friends!     I was looking after my granddaughter in the afternoon  and Jennifer Macgregor had to shop as she had been on Jury Duty during the week.
It was a shame that the Final took place on Good Friday when quite a few spectators would be on holiday.   It was a good match to watch with Haggs in very good condition given our foul weather.    We managed to watch till the 12th hole then had to head off.     Morag and Thea must have missed our support!
