County Championship - Anne , Denise and Carol are still smiling !

Anne, Denise and Carol 

Anne, Denise and Carol all tried their best today in the 1st round of the Renfrewshire County Championship Matchplay at Haggs Castle Golf Club.  Unfortunately Denise and Carol were totally outplayed by their Scratch opponents and although they played their best they were both well and truly "gubbed" !!
Anne faired a little better and held on for much of the match but it all slipped away !!
