Wednesday 15th August 2007: Eilidh wins the Tom Lehman Trophy

Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) won the Tom Lehman trophy played over Troon Lochgreen Golf Course. Eilidh scored a 77 against the CSS of 74. This result is one better than last year when Eilidh won the best nett prize. This trophy already has the name of Briggs on it with Megan having lifted the trophy 3 times. As Eilidh is only 13, the name Briggs could be on this trophy for several years to come.

Monday 4th June 2007:Renfrewshire Girls win against Lanarkshire Girls

Renfrewshire Girls had a successful match against Lanarkshire.

On Sunday 3rd June, Renfrewshire Girls played Lanarkshire at Cambuslang Golf Club on a very damp, thundery day. This 9 hole course was in perfect order and was a very good venue for a girls' match Being a strange course to all the girls, it was ideal to play the 9 holes twice rather than 18 new ones.The plan was to play foursomes to practise for the Kennedy Salver. (1 game was a singles game as Renfrewshire could only field 7 players)

Results-

(Renfrewshire girls first)
Heather Conejo beat Jennifer Black -3 and 2
Catherine Conejo & Alyson McKechin halved with Jennifer Gemmell and Abigail Gliksten
Lesley Cosh and Natasha Qayum beat Nicola McLuckie and Kirsty Hogg -6 and 4
Alison Howie and Heather Howie lost to Emma Caddow and Nicole Benson -6and 5

Our thanks go to Margaret Noblett for organising the game and Cambuslang GC for the courtesy of the course.

Catherine Conejo-Williamwood
Lesley Cosh-Cowglen
Alison Howie-Whitecraigs
Alyson McKechin-Elderslie
Natasha Qayum-Ranfurly Castle
Nicky Wilson-Whitecraigs
Saorcha Warren-Eastwood-reserve

We are beginning our countdown to June 18th with a practice and meeting at MCGA on May 31st.The Kennedy Salver has a new format this year which involves foursomes and singles in a round-robin format against every other county-all in one day!

On June 3rd, we are playing a “friendly” match at Cambuslang GC against Lanarkshire. We are hoping to play 8 aside that day so Heather Conejo and Heather Howie are also playing to gain some experience for future years.

The following weekend, some of the girls will have a practice round at Cowglen, others on the Tuesday, then a course walk round Cowglen with Dorothy Yates as our expert guide on the Wednesday! There is so much golf on for the girls just now, never mind exams, hockey, athletics, tennis, Duke of Edinburgh trips etc.

I will be telephoning our “volunteers” to organise duties for the 18th over the next couple of weeks and am grateful for all their willingness.

I hope to report another triumph for the girls in a few weeks time.
