A large turnout took to the Hill to play for the much-coveted Julie Lawrie Trophy last week.
For a pleasant change the weather was kind to the ladies which resulted in some fine scoring, none more so than Martine Pow who proved too strong for the opposition to win the trophy with an excellent 67 (+1) nett 68.
Diane Cassidy took the scratch award with a respectable 78.
Martine was the only one with a two, so got the money as well to round off a fine night.
