West Vet's Bronze Championship Final -- Maureen is the Winner

(Double click on the slideshow to go to the album and then click slideshow to see larger version of the photographs --- taken by Helen Faulds)

As promised here is the result of the Bronze Championship played today over Renfrew.
Maureen Rennie(Douglas Park) beat Anne Donnelly(Whitecraigs) 6 & 5
The game was played in good conditions and in a great spirit. Maureen & Anne had a good game but the former was playing beautifully round and on the greens. I don't think she missed a putt the whole match!

Thank you to Renfrew Golf Club for allowing us courtesy of the course to rearrange the final.

The Championship Final will take place at Renfrew on Thursday 9th June at 11am between Helen Faulds(Douglas Park) and Linda McDougall (Greenock)
