Top qualifier Linzi Allan (West Kilbride) defeated last years winner, Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies), on the 18th hole to win her first Ayrshire Ladies county title. The final was played over Glasgow Golf Club, Gailes Links in the best playing conditions of the week.

The game was squared at the next with a par from Linzi who then went on to sink a 30 foot putt for birdie on the 9th to turn 1 up. Winning 2 of the next 5 holes Linzi was then 3 up and a half in 3's at the 15th left her dormie. Defending champion Connie then produced a par and a birdie to take the match to the 18th hole.

WEST OF SCOTLAND'S ELIDH BRIGGS IS RUNNER UP IN THE R&A FOUNDATION SCHOLARS TOURNAMENT

Stirling students Jack McDonald and Eilidh Briggs both had to settle for the runner-up spots in a dramatic finish to the 54-hole R and A Foundation Scholars golf tournament over the Eden and Old Courses at St Andrews on Sunday.
Eilidh Briggs lost at the second hole of a women's title play-off to the defending champion, Paula Grant (University of Ulster), who is also the Irish women's amateur champion.
Four shots dropped over the first seven holes on the Old Course - including a double bogey 6 at the sixth - cost Stirling University's Jack McDonald victory in men's tournament.
McDonald, who had scored 69 and 65 over the Eden Course on Monday, could do no better than a closing two-over-par 74 over the Old Course for a four under par total of 212 for the 54-hole tournament contested by 60 student golfers from the UK, Ireland and some Continental countries.
All the competitors in this event receive financial assistance from the R and A to play competitively as amateurs while completing their studies.

In the women's event Paula Grant, joint overnight leader with Ailsa Summers (St Andrews), finished in a tie with Eilidh Briggs on seven under par 215 while Ailsa dropped down to join fourth place after a closing 81 for 219.
The Irish player had a pair of 69s over the Eden Course on Monday and a one-over-par 77 off the womens tees on the Old Course.
Eilidh, a physical education student and a member at Kilmacolm GC, had scores of 72, 68 and 75.
Eilidh birdied the first, second, ninth, 13th and 14th in her final round over the Old Course but bogeys at the fifth, 11th, 12th and 16th cost her victory the regulation 54 holes.
Paula had bogeys at the sixth, seventh and 11th but birdies at the 10th and 14th enabled her
to share the No 1 spot after 54 holes.
Then the Irish champion prevailed at the second extra hole of a sudden death playoff

The Douglas Park Ladies’ Annual Dinner took place on Friday the 21st February. Over 80 ladies enjoyed a glass of Kir Royale on arrival and were entertained and fascinated by a young Paul Donaldson, with his card tricks.
Moira Kerr played the guitar and amused the audience with her witty anecdotes and Sarah Perricone charmed them with her beautiful violin music. The finale was Moira, appearing as Madame Fifi La Monde, with her ‘Oooh Lala’ outfit of a French beret, fish-net stockings, tight skirt and cigarette holder – what a hoot! The staff (pictured above) , in their Bistro-style outfits, and Moses (or rather ‘Dooglass’), in his ‘Garcon’ outfit with his onions round his neck, completed the ‘look’.
Maggie Rutherford the Lady Captain ran this successful social evening.
