24th March 2005 (Thursday): East Renfrewshire duo win the Winter Foursomes Final

The Winter Foursomes Final was played at Haggs Castle yesterday between Penny Baglin (7) and Audrey Barclay (17) from East Renfrewshire against Sheila Shaw (14) and Maureen Cook (13) from Lochwinnoch.
The East Renfrewshire pairing got off to a great start by having 3 consecutive pars  to go 2 up. They then lost the long par 4th and halved the next 2 holes. A par at the par 3  7th followed by another par at the the 8th when Audrey chipped to 6 inches won them these 2 holes.

With heavily sanded greens making putting difficult at times both sides 3 putted the 9th to halve the hole and Penny and Audrey were 3 up at the turn. They then won the 10th when the Lochwinnoch pair 3 putted the 10th. With Sheila and Maureen being now 4 down they then started to fight back by winning the 11th and 14th with pars to go back to 2 down. The 15th was halved in par and with the Lochwinnoch partnership looking perhaps to get another one back at the  339 yard 16th, the East Renfrewshire Ladies Captain Penny holed a magnificent long putt to par the hole and win the match 3 and 2



21st March 2005(Monday): Spanish Seniors Photographs and your Webmaster returns from Portugal and Kate O'Sullivan does well again

Hi everyone -- Have just returned from Portugal after a great holiday with Helen Faulds our guest speaker at the County Dinner and both of our husbands.
We had 4 rounds of golf, 2 of which were competitions. Our highlight was a 4 under par  68 net 59.5 in the Texas Scramble in which we were 2nd last --- We decided the high handicaps of the rest of the field made it rather difficult to compete against !!

It was won with a 52.5 net !! However, we were pleased with our efforts.
We also bumped into Curtis Cup player Anne Laing (D & A) with the GB and Ireland Training squad at the Millenium Golf Course. (Click on the picture on the RHS to see an enlargement)


Kate finishes in the Top Ten
Second year Highpoint student Kate O'Sullivan (RLCGA) climbed up the leaderboard to take a share of 9th place in the Shamrock Inter-Collegiate tournament at Tega Cay, South Caroline on Sunday. Her third round par score of 72 gave her a total of 237 and she led Highpoint to fifth place in the team totals.
The tournament was won by Morgan Olds (Elon University) on 224. Elon won the team tournament by three shots from North Carolina - Greensboro.
Many Congratulations Kate

The Winter Foursomes Final will take place on Wednesday 23rd March at Haggs Castle Golf Club --- Tee Off Time 10:06. The Final is between Audrey  Barclay and Penny Baglin (East Renfrewshire) and Sheila Shaw and Maureen Cook (Lochwinnoch).
Please put the date in your diary and come along to support

There will be no news on this website for over a week as Gordon and I are off the Portugal with our County Guest speaker Helen Faulds and husband Bobby. After some new found tips from our county coach Karyn Burns and Adam Hunter in the Get the Edge  seminar last month I hope to give Helen something to think about !!!


10th March (Thursday): Success for  County Team Player Kate O'Sullivan, and a superb evening was had by all at the RLCGA County Dinner at Williamwood Golf Club

Women's Golf Wins Monarch Invitational; O'Sullivan beats  Svensson In All-HPU Playoff --- Southern Pines -- 7th March 2005
High Point's women's golf team captured the team title at the rain-shortened Monarch Invitational on Monday 7th March  which was hosted by the Methodist at Forest Creek CC and Mid-Pines GC in Southern Pines. Tuesday's final round was washed out.

Kate O'Sullivan (Scotland and RLCGA ) and Anni Svensson each fired opening-round 80s to tie for the individual crown.
O'Sullivan won a scorecard playoff to determine the title. Teammate Lena Svensson (84) finished fifth.
Great News Kate and keep up the good work


The County Dinner took place last night (Wednesday 9th March) at Williamwood Golf Club and  was attended by 93 Renfrewshire County  Members

The guest speaker was Helen Faulds from D & A County who entertained us with a multitude of terrific jokes of which I think Jennifer Mack, Elspeth Hanlon, Fiona Roger and Carol Fell were the prime targets.
The Top Table (Click to enlarge)


We all had a fantastic meal and Captain Aileen told many stories and quizzed us all on our knowledge on who in the last 50 Years from Renfrewshire had gained a full Scottish cap. Think about it and see if you can come up with the correct answer --- You never know I might donate a golf ball if you are correct

the Girls' Home Internationals Team Manager Jennifer.


7th March 2005 (Monday): News from the Spanish Seniors from Fiona Roger

Interested to see the photo of the lunch you had on 5th March. Magic!!  Didn't realise Margot Mclean is current captain of Eastwood Golf Club. Her daughter Barbara was in Alison's year at school. Sorry haven't got many photos to give you from Spain. Found it difficult to get photos while trying to concentrate on serious golf and to get everyone at the same place at the same time!!  I have put some photos on on a disc and I thought I would send them to you. Some are o.k. others are pretty poor. Someone took some out of the car window while I was driving !! They didn't make a very good job of them.
It doesn't seem to have reached anybody's web site that Anna Telfer (D & A County Captain) had a hole in one!! I can't remember the club she used, but it was the 14th hole and the distance was 105 meters. An island hole - water in front of the green and water immediately behind the hole - not an easy hole. This is the Trophy they presented her with --- click to see an enlargement.

The Scotland/Ireland/Canadian contingent did extremely well as a group. It was brilliant that Noreen Fenton came 2nd in the individual on 150, only one off the pace. The regulars seemed puzzled by this new face they had never seen or heard of before taking second prize. Brilliant!

A good week was had by all. Weather was bright and sunny but cold. Last couple of days much warmer. Hasn't rained since last September - guess what? we had a battering one day - fortunately it was short lived.
