From L to R - Liz Wilson (Captain) Aileen Anderson, Sheila Adams,
Helen Craig and Irene Papworth

Due to temporary greens in play at Prestwick St Nicholas, the final of the Ayrshire County Winter Foursomes was played over Kilmarnock Barassie.  

When it was played in February— It was a dry but extremely cold day with everyone well wrapped up against the elements!

The final was between the Loudoun Gowf pair Aileen Anderson and Sheila Adams against the West Kilbride’s Helen Craig and Irene Papworth (Skelmorlie) 

To the match itself, Helen and Irene got off to a flying start with a great putt to win the first hole.  However, Sheila and Aileen hit some great form, including a birdie at the Railway hole, to end the front nine 4 up!

They stretched their lead to 5 after the 11th but a fantastic fight back from Helen and Irene, winning 5 of the next 6 holes took them to the 18th all square.

Extra holes looked on the cards but a 2 putt from long range was good enough for Sheila and Aileen to win by one hole.
