NEWS FOR 2018

The Committee is reviewing the way  we pay for our Subscriptions and Meetings.  Many Clubs  now ask that we pay a higher green fee, so there will be changes for 2018.  Can  we ask you, please, not to pay for any Meetings or Subs until the new system is in place.  We hope to have everything finalised by the end of the year.  The Fixture lists will be  distributed in January, as usual, in the meantime the venues and dates  for 2018 are on the left hand side of the Blog.
Thanks!

SENIOR WOMEN'S HOME INTERNATIONALS FINAL

The Senior Women's Home Internationals  ended yesterday with Scotland "winning" the wooden spoon.  A draw with Wales on the last day  meant that Wales finished with a slightly better "games won" column, 9 to Scotland's 8.5, edging Scotland into last place.

The title-deciding match between Ireland and England was all square after the foursomes but wins by Gertie McMullen, Sheena McElroy and Laura Webb in the singles gave the Irish a 4.5-3.5 victory, ending England's bid for a fourth title in a row.
 
FINAL POSITIONS
1   Ireland 3pts
2   England 2pts
3   Wales 0.5pts       (games won 9)
4   Scotland 0.5pts   (games won 8.5)
