Preview: Kilmacolm set to host Scottish Women’s County Finals

Teams of the country’s top women’s county players from Aberdeenshire, Dumfriesshire, Renfrewshire and Midlothian will descend on Kilmacolm this Friday (14 September) for the chance to be crowned 2018 Scottish Women’s County Champions.

In the Scottish Golf organised event, first played in 1909, teams of eight players from the four winning counties from this year’s inter-county matches will contest three days of round-robin match play with the winners confirmed on Sunday.

Renfewshire will be looking to defend the title they won at Glenbervie with a team featuring two local Kilmacolm players, Megan and Eilidh Briggs. However with 2018 Curtis Cup player Shannon McWilliam (Aberdeenshire), ex-professional Corisande Lee (Dumfriesshire) and Kate McIntosh in the Midlothian team amongst others in attendance, competition for honours will be strong again this year.

Fraser Munro, Head of Events at Scottish Golf, said: “The County Finals are an excellent showcase for women’s golf in Scotland and we look forward to another exciting event. With Renfrewshire winning last year, Dumfriesshire in 2016 and Angus in 2015, it’s all to play for this week.

“We would like to thank our hosts Kilmacolm and wish all teams every success. We hope all players enjoy the course and we look forward to seeing some exciting matches contested in a great spirit over the next few days.”
