Junior Newsletter

An exciting and successful month for our juniors.
Firstly many congratulations to Mackenzie Holmes winning the Junior Championship final against Timmy Erskine -an exciting match played in difficult conditions.
Also well done to Romy Erskine winning the Renfrewshire girls trophy, the Campbell Clock -in atrocious weather!
Our boys have also been very successful in the RGU Under 15 Order of Merit
Young Scott Newman finished in first place, an superb achievement-well done Scott.
Also Mackenzie H finished 5th, Timmy E 6th, Alexander Farmer 12th and Harry Kellock 14th. Congratulations to all.
And Scott and Timmy played in the successful County team who retained the West League title for the third year.

Unfortunately no competitions were played during September due to the appalling weather. Hopefully all can be rescheduled into October.
Mention though of one young player -Lucie Barclay who, not only was determined to play in one of the 7 hole competitions regardless of the rain, managed to beat her previous best and reduce her handicap- what a girl!
