Haggs Castle GC Finals Day took place today in glorious sunshine.
The Ladies final pitted 4 times champion Jennifer Rankine against 2014 Champion Laura McGeachy, a repeat of 4 previous Ladies Championship Finals.
Both players had been in good form recently and the final was expected to be a close contest. So it proved.
Jennifer was 1 up playing the 11th and both players were slightly short with their tee shots. Laura unfortunately missed an opportunity to get back to level. After halving the 12th Laura drove into trouble at 13th and went 2 down.
Laura was again in difficulty at 14th to go 3 down. The 15th was halved leaving Jennifer 3 up with 3 to play.
The 16th was played well by both players but the resultant half left Jennifer a 3& 2 winner and Champion for the fifth time.
Many thanks go to Neal Stewart for the report and photograph
Amy Foster (pictured above) has just won the Ratho Park Ladies Club Championship this year.

Congratulations go to Renfrewshire's former County Team player Denise Cowan who won the Ranfurly Castle Club Championship on Sunday beating Jan Macnab in the Final - To read the full report go to the Ranfurly Castle Ladies Blog
Also that day the Douglas Park Golf Club held their finals day with D&A county team member Fiona Rattray putting on a display of great golf to beat Renfrewshire's Shirley Back -- (Poor Shirley got stung at the side of her eye at the 3rd green by a wasp but I believe all is ok now.)
No spectators were allowed to watch these matches so no more photos as I was a caddy in the Seniors Match !! -- However here is a short video at the end with Ladies Vice Captain Paula Galloway presenting the Seniors Trophy at the end.

Looking out the window this afternoon on yet another awful day - with last week the AIG Women's Open at Royal Troon and this week the British Women's Strokepay Championship at West Lancashire -- it reminded me a bit about the bad weather!!!
So looking down Memory Lane -- Here is the 2010 British Seniors Strokeplay Championship at West Kilbride and the weather wasn't much better there either !!
Bev New from Lansdown, Somerset, was the 2010 Senior British ladies’ open amateur champion.
Have a wee look at the video below !!!!

At the renowned venue in the north-west, the English trio of Emily Price, Rosie Belsham and Isabelle Simpson were joined by Carolina Melgrati from Italy and Denmark’s Amalie Leth-Nissen in signing for one-under-par rounds of 71 in the Women's Amateur Championship QualifierWith stroke play qualifying reduced to one round after Tuesday’s inclement weather, play was delayed a further hour on Wednesday morning due to strong winds. West Lancashire, hosting the championship for the first time, was then blessed with far more favourable conditions.
Good luck to Katie Graham (pictured above) who is travelling to Oaklahoma today to begin her golf scholarship.
