Today saw the final of the County Championship and Gibb Trophy and what a great day we had for this event. The weather was lovely and warm but the golf was hot hot hot!!
This morning in the County Championship Laura Walker played junior member Eilidh Watson and young Eilidh showed fantastic calm and nerve and took Laura to the 17th green. Fantastic Eilidh, great golf!
In the second of the semi finals Emily Ogilvy played Jillian Milne and Emily showed her form and won the match 4&3.
This left a final of our two lowest handicap players Laura Walker and Emily Ogilvy and they certainly did not leave us in any doubt of their ability. With the very first hole halved in birdies we just knew we were in for a treat. With a total of 6 birdies and an eagle the match was all square going down 18 where Laura won the hole and took the Championship for the second time. Well done to Laura, a brilliant display and a worthy winner.
The Gibb Trophy semi final was played this morning with Susan MacDougall winning 4&3 against Kathy McKay and Linda Mailer winning 3&2 against Marion Forbes. Agains this final was hard fought and a very narrow winning score of 1 hole made Susan MacDougall our new Gibb Trophy Champion.
Well done to all and I will post lots of new photo's tomorrow. Many thanks go to all who came along to support the players.
