Congratulations to Fereneze Golf Club
With week 9 matches now complete, it's congratulations to Fereneze Golf Club who are winners of this season's league. They completed their league campaign in style with a win over East Renfrewshire, the match being played at Pollok. The club last won the league in 2010 and 13 years has been a long wait to reclaim the title.
The team this year has been a great mix of regular players blended with youngsters joining from their very successful Fleming Watson team. The result has yielded a superb 8 wins and only 1 defeat in the campaign to date, with total of 40 points.
Meanwhile at the bottom end of the table it was a night of drama for both Cathcart Castle playing against Williamwood, and East Renfrewshire playing against Fereneze - both teams desperately trying to avoid "winning" the Wooden Spoon.
With both ties evenly poised and looking like draws, East Renfrewshire went down in their final game, while Cathcart Castle snatched a late win in theirs to ensure the WS would make the journey to Loganswell. With both teams having had a relatively poor season, this thrilling finish to the season means ER pick up the Spoon they last held 5 years ago.
In second place in the league were Bonnyton, winners in 2021 and in third place Haggs Castle the 2019 champions.
It's been another great year in the league and we look forward to the Annual Dinner in October being held this year at Haggs Castle.
