In fine weather at Renfrew today Carol Fell (Ranfurly Castle) was the overall winner of the July Medal by virtue of the BIH from Sheila Shaw (Lochwinnoch) winner of the 13 -28 handicap division and Grace Malone (Cochrane Castle).
 Despite having a triple bogey 7 at the 6th after putting her ball out of bounds and then carding a double bogey 6 at the 8th and a double bogey 7 at the 15th Carol played to her handicap with being only 4 over par for the rest of the holes.
Kate O'Sullivan (Cochrane Castle)
won the Scratch Award with a Gross 80
Renfrew Golf Club
had been one of the courses used as a qualifier to get into this years Open and the greens were in magnificent condition --- a trifle fast to say the least !!
The SSS for Renfrew is 75 and the CSS for the day remained at 75
