West Girls beat East Girls at Strathaven

A strong West Girls' team defeated the East Girls by 6 matches to 2 at Strathaven Golf Club, Lanarkshire,  to win the Mhairi Mackay Trophy for the first time since 2010. All the games were closely contested and played in the best of spirits with all the girls enjoying their annual get together. Although conditions were wet underfoot, it stayed dry and calm throughout the match and the spectators enjoyed watching excellent golf.

Our thanks to Allison Bell, Chairman of the West of Scotland Girls, and her committee for their warm welcome and generous hospitality.
