Anne Terrey (Bronze Champion) and Lorraine Campbell (2014 West Vets Champion)
The Championship was held at Renfrew GC once again and our thanks go to them for their courtesy of the course and their kind hospitality over the two days.

There were 16 qualifiers again this year for our annual Championship. All matches were keenly contested and the golf was of a very high standard. The shock of the 1st round was the defeat of former champion, May Hughes (Lanark) by Cathy Morton (Eastwood) at the 18th but Cathy proved to be a steely and determined competitor.
The quarter finals were played on the Thursday afternoon and saw the field reduced to four players. Both semi finals on Friday morning were extremely close and tense affairs. Lorraine Campbell (Cardross) eventually edged out the number 1 seed Janice Paterson (Drumpellier) at the 18th. Meanwhile in the other tie - which swung one way and then the other- Linda McDougall (Greenock) holed a downhill 5 footer on the 18th to take the tie into extra holes. However a par 4 at the first was good enough to take Anna Telfer (Milngavie) through to the final.
Some Spectators 

The final was played in glorious sunshine although disappointingly there were very few supporters or spectators to watch the game. Anna took an early lead and was 2 up after 3 holes but a chip in at the 6th spurred Lorraine on and she rallied to go 3 up after 13. However a mini fight back saw Anna reduce the deficit to one hole as they stood on the 17th tee. Both had good drives, but Lorraine's superior length enabled her to hit a 5 iron ( and in her words " my sweetest and best struck shot of the day") to about 10 feet. She calmly holed her birdie putt and emerged a worthy winner and our West Vets Champion of 2014. Lorraine will now go to Strathmore GC in September to play in the Scottish Vets Championship and I'm sure we all wish her the very best of luck in that competition.

There were 4 qualifiers for the Bronze Championship and unfortunately the final was rather one sided. Anne Terrey (Greenock) was 3 up after 6 holes against the 2013 champion Ann Colthart (Dalmally). Then a blistering run of 5 consecutive holes won from the 8th to the 12th saw Anne win by 7/6.

Janice Paterson
The Summer Meeting at Milngavie was played today in rather wet underfoot conditions after all the torrential rain we have had recently.  No competitor was able to get a score in the 70's. It was therefore no surprise that the competition was -- REDUCTION ONLY. --- SSS 71, CSS 74 (Reduction Only)

Janice Paterson (Drumpellier) pictured left  had the best round of the day with an 80, and is the winner of the Heather Anderson Trophy for the best Scratch score

Fiona Roger
Fiona Roger (Ranfurly Castle) pictured right took 1st handicap prize in the Silver Division with a 73 and May McGhee (Balmore) was the Bronze winner with a nett 84

Super Vet winner was Fiona Cowan (Balmore)
