Once again the Renfrewshire ladies had the courtesy of East Renfrewshire Golf Club, this time for the final of the Winter Foursomes and we are most grateful to then once again for allowing us to use the course.
The 1st Tee - Marilyn, Birgit, Evy and Fiona

The final was between Fiona Roger and Evy McGregor (Ranfurly Castle) and Birgit Clark and Marilyn Muir (Old Ranfurly). 
The conditions were much improved from last week and the course had dried out amazingly well. The conditions overhead were perfect with no wind but with quite a chilly feel to the atmosphere. 

Fiona and Evy were slow to start and found themselves 2 down after 2 holes. They managed to half the 3rd and went on to win the next 2 holes to bring them to all square at the 6th. After that it was a bit of 'ding-dong' battle with the match all square stepping on to the 14th tee. Unfortunately for Evy and Fiona the water hazard at the 14th and the 15th proved a bit of a problem and Birgit and Marilyn went 2 up. 
Fiona and Evy had a chance to get it back to 1 down with 2 to play as their opposition found the left-hand greenside bunker and took 4 to get on the green to their 3. Fiona and Evy's putt from the back of the 16th looked incredibly quick but it was in fact, incredibly slow and sadly, it took them too many to get to the hole and the rest is history! 
It was a close fought match with some good golf both off the tee and on the greens and, as always, played with the usual Renfrewshire camaraderie which is our hallmark.
