May Helen and Suzanne do well at the Inter County Jamboree

May Hughes, Helen Faulds and Suzanne Cadden - click to enlarge


Many Congratulations go to West Vet May Hughes of Lanarkshire who played superbly well at the County Jamboree at Kilmacolm this week. Her putting and chipping was fantastic --- Well done May
-- And what about our West Vets Captain Helen Faulds representing D&A -- a good win against Renfrewshire in the Singles and a halved match against Lanarkhire. Also West Vets Suzanne Cadden (D&A) who had a good win in the foursomes against Ayrshire
Meantime --- Ayrshire's Captain Alex Glennie was keeping all her players in check and probably would have been playing had it not been for all her Captaincy duties.

WELL DONE TO YOU ALL --- GOOD FOR VETS GOLF

Senior Scratch Competition for the Riccarton Salver

The Riccarton Rosebowl is on Sunday 8th August over Hamilton Golf Course. This is an SLGA ranking competition of 2 rounds.
On that day there is also the Senior Ladies competition for the Riccarton Salver. This competition is a Scratch Competition over one round and played between the rounds of the Rosebowl. It ran in 2009 for the first time but many ladies did not know about it until too late. The idea of the competition was to encourage Ladies who previously played in the Rosebowl but who now do not wish to play 36 hole competition. We hope that this could renew many old friendships.
