Played Wednesday 8 September 2021.
11 ladies played in weather that was unexpectedly boiling for the time of year!
1st Silver: Marion Munro 89 (12) 77 (bih)
2nd Silver: Jan Macnab 86 (9) 77
1st Bronze: Mary Hardie 101 (25) 76
2nd Bronze: Gillian Donaghy 104 (25) 79 (bih)
TROPHY WINNER: Mary Hardie
The scoring was relatively high for such a calm day, but there was a highlight when Denise Cowan had a HOLE-IN-ONE at the 14th.
Reported as a 7 iron shot that was played through the bunker gap for a kick in towards the pin on the right, both Marion and Denise were not sure the ball was in the hole until they looked closely! Well done Denise 😀

This last friendly fixture of 2021 was hosted at home on a beautiful warm day with the course in excellent condition.
The Elderslie ladies enjoyed the match and our hospitality afterwards.
The match result was a very equitable half.
Many thanks to our team of Lindsay Wright, Pauline MacEwen, Fiona Christie, Morag Cunningham and Evelyn McDermid who represented the club magnificently.
Very many thanks to Jan Macnab for organising and for playing on the day with the Elderslie organiser.
If any lady wishes to take part in a friendly match in 2022 (usually 3-4 matches over the season) please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can participate in as many or as few matches as you like. They are actually fun fixtures and good for match play practise in a relaxed atmosphere.

The Renfrewshire Ladies County Championship was played at Ranfurly Castle this week. Thanks to Craig and the greens staff for presenting the course in such a beautiful condition to show off to our visitors.
The Championship title was ultimately won by Jennifer Rankine of Haggs Castle (handicap +1) in a close match on Friday afternoon against Julie Wilson of Williamwood. Earlier, there had been a very good showing from our ladies.
Congratulations to Jan Macnab who won the Peggy Clark Cup for the best net score (73) in Wednesday's (very windy) qualifying round, just pipping Allison Murray with the better inward half.
Then, on Friday morning, Morag Cunningham won the handicap knockout final, beating Vicky Rennie at the 18th, to win the Irvine Trophy (presented 5 years ago by our own Jean Irvine).
Well done also to Denise Cowan who reached the semi-finals of the Championship itself and to Jan and Marion who both won their first match and were knocked out in the quarter-finals.
