The Scottish Veteran Ladies Golf Association team beat the Irish senior women's team 6.5 to 5.5 at Murcar Links Golf Club today to win the Mary McKenna Trophy for the first time since 2009.
Scotland took a 1pt lead in the first-day foursomes and just managed to hold on to that advantage by drawing the singles 4-4.
The Irish had won the last seven years in this fixture in which the venue alternates between Scotland and Ireland.
The vital Scottish victories in the singles came from Lorna McKinlay (Midland), Gillian Kyle (West) and Aberdeen Ladies stalwart Sheena Wood (Northern).
Donna Jackson (West) and Buckpool's Meg Seivwright (Highland) halved their singles.
It must be the North-east air that inspires the Scots Vets. The 2009 victory was achieved at Cruden Bay!

SPRING MEETING OVER EAST KILBRIDE -- HARD TO TAME THE COURSE AND THE WIND !!


It was great to have 82 ladies testing their early season skills at East Kilbride on a dry but very windy day. The conditions contrived to lengthen some holes on an already long course !!

However some Vets deserve praise for managing to almost tame the course.
In particular, Dorothy Horsefield (Crail)  was the overall winner with an excellent nett 73, with runner-up Lilias Snodgrass (Ranfurly Castle) achieving a nett 75 (bih), and Sara Scott (Troon Ladies) was 1st in the Bronze Division with a nett 78.

Lilias Snodgrass (Net 75) also was the Super Vet winner  with Lana MacDonald (Hilton Park) one shot behind. with a net 76.  The best gross score of the day was achieved by Liz Stewart (Greenburn) with 79.

Despite the difficult conditions, everyone seemed to come off the course with a smile – or was it just relief !!
However we look forward to having a big field for our Summer Meeting at Ralston. Thanks go to Marion Stewart and Anne Dunn for their work throughout the day.
