We are sorry we did not manage to bring back the new Shield - the standard of golf was very high and the opposition tough. It was just not our year! Congratulations to Northern Counties on their success and we appreciate it was very painful for Midlothian to lose on countback. Galloway must be congratulated on keeping their spirits up and are an example to us all.
To qualify for the Scottish Finals two years in a row and to gain a creditable third place is no mean feat. The last time we qualified back to back was in 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 196o and 1961. Renfrewshire won every year bar 1958.
Well done girls. You are a credit to Renfrewshire on and off the course. I have no doubt you will reach your goal in the near future.
Northern Counties won the Scottish women's county team golf championship in a nail-biting finish to the three-day programme at Baberton Golf Club, Edinburgh today.
Northern Counties and Midlothian, the only two teams with 100 per cent records after two days, met in the title decider – and it ended in a 4 ½-4 ½ draw.
The countback of games won previously gave Northern Counties the title (14 ½-14).
It was Northern Counties' first title win in five years but their fourth win of the decade, having previously been national champions in 2000, 2003 and 2004.
And yet, Northern Counties looked to have suffered a body blow to their title prospects when Kelsey MacDonald (Stirling University and Nairn Dunbar), Scottish Under-21 champion for the past two years, hurt her wrist hacking out of the rough during the morning foursomes and had to be taken to hospital where ligament damage was diagnosed.
With Midlothian taking a 2-1 foursomes lead into the six afternoon singles – and Kelsey hors de combat, it looked odds on that the East Division champions would regain the title they won in 2005 and again in 2007.
Midlothian increased their lunchtime advantage to 4-1 when Jane Turner beat Pam Mackay 4 and 3, and Claire Hargan won by 3 and 2 against Alison Bartlett.
But then Northern Counties tail wagged with a vengeance.
Elgin's Jenny Milne stopped the slide by halving her match with Scotland girl international Rachael Watton.
Then Counties won the last three singles to salvage a halved match and win the title on a countback.
Youngsters Julie Vass (15) and Hannah McCook (16) played like veterans to knock 2pt off the deficit. Tain's Julie beat Karen Marshall 5 and 4 while Hannah, the North of Scotland girls champion from Nethy Bridge, beat the experienced Louise Fraser by one hole.
Then the Northern Counties' ploy of saving their champion, Cara Gruber (Royal Dornoch) for the anchor role in the singles paid a huge dividend. In a tight match that went all the way to the 18th green, Cara beat Claire MacDonald by two holes.
Gruber was Counties' outstanding player of the tournament with 4 1/2pt out of six, just ahead of Hannah McCook and Mary Smith (Tain), each with 4pt. Mary, a senior Scotland international, did not play against Midlothian, either in the foursomes or the singles, after winning 4pt out of four through Friday and Saturday. It transpires she was playing in a veterans' tournament at Blairgowrie on Sunday!
Midlothian had the two most successful players over the three days – Jane Turner and Claire Hargan, both with 5pt. Jane won five games out of six, Hargan won all five ties in which she played.
Renfrewshire beat Galloway 7 1/2-1 1/2 to finish third in the table with 1pt. Megan Briggs won 4 1/2pt out of six for Renfrewshire wile sister Eilidh won 4pt.
RENFREWSHIRE 7 ½, GALLOWAY 1 ½
Foursomes: Eilidh Briggs and Megan Briggs bt Gillian Monteith and Tracy Milligan 4 and 3; Donna Jackson and Liz Stewart bt Christina Meldrum and Addi Shamash 2 and 1; lare-Marie Carlton and Gillian Kyle bt Sheila McMurtrie and Gwen Robson 1 hole (3-0).
Singles: Megan Briggs bt Monteith 1 hole, Carlton bt Shamash 5 and 4, Eilidh Briggs lost to McMurtrie 1 hole, Alyson McKechin bt Meldrum 5 and 3, Carol Whyte halved with Robson, Kyle bt Milligan 1 hole (4 ½-1 ½).

Jane won by 2 and 1 after single putting on about 9 occasions and further Midlothian wins by Claire Hargan and Claire MacDonald gave them a 2 point win overall.Clare-Marie Carlton and Elidh Briggs were Renfrewshire's winners with Carol Wyte getting a very goof half
Northern Counties made a 3-0 clean sweep of the foursomes against Galloway but it was not quite so easy for them in the singles.

Northern Counties and Midlothian look to be on course with the title at stake after the opening day of the Scottish women's county golf championship finals at Baberton Golf Club, Edinburgh.
Midlothian, East Division champions and the favourites with "home field advantage," whipped South title-holders Galloway 8 ½-½ while Northern Counties, the North Division champions, beat Renfrewshire, the West title-holders, by the surprisingly convincing margin of 7 ½-1 1/2 .
Northern Counties took the foursomes 2-1 against Renfrewshire before a cracking top singles tie between international team-mates, Scottish Champion Megan Briggs (Kilmacolm), and national under-21 Champion for the past two years, Kelsey MacDonald (Nairn Dunbar) ended in a square match.
Between them they had five birdies over the last six holes. Megan was one up one the 18th tee before Kelsey won the last hole to share the honours.
Northern Counties then won the remaining five singles with wins by Cara Gruber, senior cap Mary Smith, Jenny Milne, and Northern Counties girls champion Hannah McCook, who birdied the 15th and 16th , and another youngster, Julie Vass.
Unfortunately Renfrewshire were without Clare- Marie Carlton today as she was unable to get time off work from her new job at Playsport Development in East Kilbride.
However, to be fair Northern Counties played well and were deserving winners on the day.

Scottish and Renfrewshire champion Megan Briggs, played in the singles match at the Home Internationals against England this afternoon. Megan who had been three down after five holes to English girls title-holder Holly Clyburn, fought back to win the seventh, eighth and ninth. Then she birdied the 11th to lead for the first time. Megan then went two up at the 14th but Clyburn was not finished yet. She won the 15th with a par and the short 16th with a birdie 2 to square the match. In a thrilling finish, Megan edged ahead again with a par 4 at the 17th, which meant she was assured of a halved match at least and that half-point would guarantee Scotland at least a halved match overall with England. Megan in fact was able to clinch overall victory for Scotland, beating Clyburn by two holes when the English player conceded the 18th.

Scotland showed true grit to come from behind to beat Ireland 5-4 on the opening day of the women's home internationals at bright and breezy Irvine Golf Club, Ayrshire today
The bonus for skipper Lesley Nicholson's squad was that Wales walloped England 7-2 in the other match.
"The girls put me through it today but they got there in the end," said Lesley.
"I'm delighted. They did so well to turn it around from what could have been a losing position."
Scotland made up their one-point foursomes deficit by winning the first two singles to finish against Ireland.
West of Scotland Players did well today with Pamela Pretswell winning both her foursomes and singles ties. Renfrewshire's Megan Briggs played very well in the morning with an under form Kylie Walker. Megan was not selected for the singles in the afternoon,however Kylie was and fortunately got her game back together in afternoon singles to bring in the winning result. --- WELL DONE TO YOU ALL

Renfrewshire Ladies County Junior Girls’ Stableford Competition for the Campbell Clock, was held today at Whitecraigs G.C. Forty girls braved the elements and all completed their games despite some heavy rain. Their behaviour and attitude both on the course and in the Clubhouse were excellent and a credit to their parents, many of whom volunteered to act as helpers on the course.
