Clare - Marie Carlton was runner up in the Scottish Strokeplay Championships played over West Kilbride. To read all about it go to the Junior News Section . Well done Clare- Marie and also well done to Megan Briggs (Kilmacolm) who was in the top 12
Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) was the youngest in the field.  There were no other under 12s so she was moved to the under 14 category and won the prize for the best net aggregate over the three rounds.

There are not many entries for the August Medal over Gourock and Maureen Skinner who is in charge of the day is disappointed in the response and says surely they must remember the great day we had last time the medal was played here .The course is in excellent condition at the moment and should be even better by 9 August since that is only a few days after the Club Championship. She will be happy to take entries by email to save the hassle of posting

5th July 2005:  County Rosebowl Result and European Team Championships

Carol Fell (Ranfurly Castle) and Susan Young (Fereneze) played their County Rosebowl tie this morning at Ranfurly Castle. Despite Carol giving 5 strokes to Susan who proceeded to have 3's at all the short holes to Carol's bogey 4's the game was a closely contested match (Better Ball 7 over Par !!!)
 Birdie 3's at the 1st hole and the 18th hole were just enough to secure a 1 hole win for Carol who now meets Moira Hogg (Old Ranfurly) in the top half of the draw. See the rersults so far  at this link 2005 RLCGA County Rosebowl Matchplay Stages

3rd July 2005: Message from Captain Aileen

What a great Team effort at Lanark Golf Club by Renfrewshire players, caddies and supporters!

Renfrewshire lost 4-5 to Lanarkshire, and won 6 1/2 -2 1/2 against Ayrshire and won 7-2 against Dumbartonshire and Argyll.

We were so close to winning, but came second to Lanarkshire just a little more luck and half a point more when we played them on Monday and we would have been going to the Scottish Finals at Ranfurly Castle on Friday 16th -Sunday 18th September 2005.

Our Team gave everything they could, whether playing or supporting (only 6 of 8 team members play at one time). Every player helped put points on the board and remained positive and enthusiastic throughout.

I just wish more members and supporters had been there to see our team and individual players from their own Clubs. Our younger members had some outstanding results with Megan, Clare-Marie and Kate gaining lots of points. If Ruth Rankin of Lanarkshire had not put a driver shot off the fairway to 12 inches from the hole at the 15th on Monday morning we might have gained that extra half point. Then on Wednesday afternoon we had new girl Gillian Kyle winning against Internationalist Kylie Walker. I just wish some East Renfrewshire members had been there to see it. (It was reminiscent of Gillian McGinlay defeating Clare Hargan a few years ago. Gillian McGinlay had some good play and her description of others efforts as 'awesome' became the saying of the competition!
Julie Wilson also did her bit , playing well on her debut. Donna Jackson our 10 times champion was her usual reliable self with a high standard of play and Jenny Jenkins did well not holding back on hitting the ball as far as possible and having some excellent wins.
I would life to thank our caddies and supporters for their help and encouragement. It DOES make a difference. It was good to have our coach Karyn Burns there on Tuesday supporting.

Next year's Jamboree is at East Renfrewshire GC on Monday 26th June - Wednesday 28th June 2006.

Good golf to you all for the rest of the season.
