4th August 2004: SLGA Centenary Competition Regional Final

The Renfrewshire regional final of the SLGA Centenary Competition was played at Paisley Golf Club today. There were  27 finalist playing and the scoring was exceedingly low with 50% of the field having 36 points or more.
With only one winner from both of the Silver and Bronze Division and a Junior Winner, it was a pity a few more could not qualify the the Scottish National Final at Prestwick St Nicholas on the Friday 1st October 2004 and who will form the "Renfrewshire County Team". The County Champion Karen Fitzgerald will play against the other County Champions at Glasgow Gailes on the same day

The Silver Division was won by  Denise Parr (Cowglen) with 40 points by virtue of the Better Inward Half  from Gillian Mullen (Paisley) and in 3rd Place was Sarah Kirby (Ranfurly Castle) with 39 points.

The Bronze Division was won by Jo Riddell (Erskine) with 39 points and the runner up was Claire Smith (Cochrane Castle) with 38 points - better last 3 holes from Val Lawrence ( Kilmacolm) who also had 38 points.

The Junior Section was won by Eilidh Briggs (Ranfurly Castle) with 38 points from Catherine Conje-Watt (Williamwood) and Jennifer Rossi (Whitecraigs) who both had 36 points
