The league was first established in 1931 by Isabel Greenlees. She was a member of Prestwick St Nicholas before joining Troon Ladies where the 50th Anniversary was held and where she presented the trophies. We are all grateful to her for establishing the league and for giving us such pleasure in playing inter club matches through the years

Willeen McCallumWilleen McCallum (Whitecraigs) the Greenlees Divisional Secretary chaired the presentation lunch. She congratulated all the winners and also announced her retirement from the post by saying that it seemed appropriate that she should retire this year when so many new names have appeared on the trophies. Jean Donaldson Life Member of Largs gave a very enlightening talk on the history of Largs and Sandra Nordbe, Captain of Largs presented the trophies
