Golf round-up

MILNGAVIE Golf Club Ladies Greenlees team have made it three in a row when they were crowned West of Scotland Premier Scratch champions for the third successive year.

Their title defence to our title got off to a slow start but two massive 9-0 home wins in August saw the team climb into the top three.

The final match saw them narrowly lose to nearest rivals, Cathkin Braes, who have been runners up for the past two seasons.

However, the four points claimed were enough to see them crowned as champions.

The club’s Anna Telfer said: “This was a fantastic achievement and a superb advert for Milngavie GC to be recognised as the Premier Scratch Team in the West of Scotland for the third year running.

“I would like to publicly thank Stewart MacAulay who has managed to access sponsorship through Arnold Clark for the past three seasons.

But mostly I would just like to thank all the players. It has been a great team effort - the spirit within the group is excellent, as are the playing skills.”
