At the 3rd attempt, after cancellations because snow and illness, Fiona Roger and Evy McGregor played Elaine Munn and Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) at Ranfurly Castle. Although wet underfoot and on 4 temporary greens, the overhead conditions were perfect and very pleasant for golf. The East Ren visitors were giving 6 shots but took an early lead when Elaine played a perfect wedge to 2 feet at the 2nd then the Ranfurly pair found the greenside bunker and thick rough at the 4th, gifting the hole to their oppostion. A fantastic recovery shot from Evy from the wet rough at the short 5th and an amazing 20 foot putt from Fiona saved the loss of that hole but steady play at the 6th and 7th saw the visitors go 4 up. BUT…shots given at the 8th and 9th brought the score back to 2 at the turn.
A poor 3rd shot at the 10th from the home players let the visitors gain another hole but an excellent par at the long 11th, net birdie, brought the score tighter again, Chances were given and lost at the 12th resulting in a half and the thick rough proved too tough for Fiona at the 14th so despite getting a shot there, they could not match the par from Elaine and Gillian who went back to 3 up. The visitors found the greenside bunker at the 14th and Evy and Fiona didn’t need their shot at the 15th when Fiona pitched their 3rd shot to 3 feet. So back to 1 up. Nerves kicking in!
A good drive and 5 iron to 3 feet let Elaine and Gillian win the hole with a birdie so dormie 2.  The 17th was played well by the East Ren pair giving them 2 putts to win the match after Evy’s putt just missed by a couple of inches.

A lovely morning was had by all with lots of good chat and pretty good golf for the time of year!
