Muriel Young from Old Ranfurly wins the Renfrewshire Ladies County Golf Association Spring Meeting at Caldwell

Even though the sun didn't come through until lunchtime, it was still a comfortable day for playing golf in the Renfrewshire Ladies County Spring Meeting at Caldwell Golf Club today.  The numbers were down a bit on account of quite a  few members playing in the Revive Active Scottish Women's Regional Silver and Bronze Medal Finals at Kilmacolm. 

The course was in good condition although competitors found the greens somewhat tricky to judge the pace, especially after playing on the slick greens of Portland Troon at the West Vets Summer Meeting on Wednesday.   It must have been those 3 putts that resulted in a CSS of 74

Patricia Davidson ( Erskine Golf Club) pictured left won the scratch with a gross 81 which included a birdie at the 14th and 8 pars.

In second place was Linda McDougall (Greenock) with a gross 84 (bih) and Carol McNally (Williamwood) finished in third place with a gross 84.

Muriel Young (pictured above) of Old Ranfurly Golf Club playing off a handicap of 17 was the overall winner of the Spring Meeting with a nett 71. Muriel played very steady today, going out in 45 and back in 43 with 5 pars in her round and no higher than a 6 on her card.

Divison 1 (Handicap Scratch - 12) 

1st: Patricia Davidson (Erskine) 81(6) 75.
