18th May 2004: The Wind Blows at Old Prestwick !! Surprise Surprise !!

The first qualifying round of the Scottish Women's Amateur Championship was played today with a strong westerly wind blowing over the ancient and potentially awesome Prestwick links.
With the clubhouse and car park awash with tales of players' calamities from countless out of bounds excursions, visits to bottomless bunkers shored up with railway sleepers and rough with a capital "R," it was a real struggle for all the players (Thanks to Colin Farquharson for the info)

Kate O'Sullivan  (Cochrane Castle) was the best from RLCGA with a gross 83 on a day when only 7 players broke 80 !!
