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!
Lorna McClymont won the Mackie bowl at Gullane on Sunday, winning by 5 shots from Tara McTaggert (Minto). In her first round she shot a 65, a new course record. Over the 36 holes she had two eagles, eleven birdies and only one bogey.
