Lanarkshire and RLCGA Teams -- Click to enlarge
Renfrewshire, the defending champions, made an impressive start to their 2009 campaign to retain the West Division women's inter-county team championship at Stathaven Golf Club today.
They beat Lanarkshire, without Vagliano Trophy player Pamela Pretswell, soundly by the resounding margin of 8-1. The writing was on the wall for Lanarkshire after they lost the morning foursomes 3-0.
Dunbartonshire & Argyll, without their GB&I team selection and county champion Kylie Walker managed to edge a 5-4 win over Ayrshire, which represented a good afternoon's work by Ayrshire. They had lost the morning foursomes 2-1 but battled hard to share the singles 3-3
Tomorrow, it's Renfrewshire v Ayrshire and Lanarkshire v Dunbartonshire & Argyll.
On Wednesday, it's Lanarkshire v Ayrshire, Dunbartonshire & Argyll v Renfrewshire.
The winners of the West Division title qualify for the four-cornered contest for the Scottish women's county team championship at Baberton Golf Club, Edinburgh in September.
