Sophie Murphy won the 2019 Junior Championship. Played in glorious sunshine at Clydebank and District Golf Club, she won with a scratch 79. Winner of the Cowan Cup was Kirstie Soutar. County President Fiona Cowan presented the girls with their trophies. This year we also ran a pre-handicap competition over 9 holes to encourage some of our new girls to play. Lily McGrandles (Dumbarton) and Bella Lakeland-Newman (Cardross) both braved the heat and had equal scores over 9 holes.
It’s that time of year again, the season is coming to an end and the AGM is approaching, a number of the committee are about to retire and new members are required. If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved you can contact any of the existing committee, details are on your card. Or better still volunteer!

A sign on Stockiemuir Road says that the road will be closed from 10th June for one week for re-surfacing. This is from Craigton Road to Carbeth. i.e. covering a few miles stretch past Hilton Park Golf Club.
The businesses have not been advised of this so the council have been contacted and they have assured us that although the sign says the road is closed there will be local access to the Club and there will be people at both ends of the road. There may, however, be a delay in being allowed through because of tarring so their advice is allow an extra 20 minutes onto your journey.
