The Team, caddies and supporters travelled to “Costa Del Aboyne” for the Scottish Women’s County Finals. Unfortunately the results did not match the weather:
Day 1: Dumfriesshire 7 . 2 Dunbartonshire and Argyll
Day 2: Aberdeenshire 7 . 2 Dunbartonshire and Argyll
Day 3: Midlothian 5.5 . 3.5 Dunbartonshire and Argyll
The event was won by Dumfriesshire. Over the three days the golf from all teams was of an excellent standard and despite the results we had a fantastic team spirit. The caddies as usual were very supportive and fun and were very much appreciated. Karen and the committee would like to say a big thank you to our team and everyone who came to caddy and support, contributing to it being an excellent event.
Some of our junior girls played a friendly against Ayrshire juniors at Milngavie on Sunday 4th Sept. Unfortunately only two D&A girls were available so Christina from Ayrshire kindly played for us. the result of the match was a friendly half. Julia Thompson won 5 and 4, Sophie Murphy was beaten 4&3 and the Ayrshire girls had a very friendly halved match.
D&A are representing the West Division in the County Finals at Aboyne Golf Club, Friday 16th September to Sunday 18th September, playing against Dumfriesshire, Aberdeenshire and Mid Lothian. Anyone wishing to come along and support the team will be welcome.
