Scottish Women’s County Finals: A Short 2021 Story

Scottish Golf hosted the Scottish Women’s County Finals at Forres Golf Club from Friday 27 till Sunday 29 August.

The Competing Teams

Competitors in the County Finals are the four County Teams who won the Jamborees in their respective divisions of Scotland.

  • Perth & Kinross was representing the North.
  • Midlothian was representing the East.
  • Dunbartonshire & Argyll was representing the West.
  • No team was representing the South where their Jamboree fell victim to covid.
In order to retain the traditional round robin format of the County Finals, Scottish Golf asked Jenny Milne, Northern Counties Captain, to provide an unofficial fourth team. With several of her players unavailable, she extended an invitation to members of the Aberdeenshire squad.

Jenny was delighted to welcome Susie Macleod (Deeside) and Fiona Campbell (McDonald, Ellon) to join the North Invitational team. She valued their support, their participation, their efforts, and the very good golf that they played. Susie and Fiona enjoyed the experience very much.

The Worthy Winners

I made a trip to Forres on the Friday to spectate and support. Our President Ros went on Saturday. We were both very impressed by the quality of golf that was on display. It was a bonus to be basking in beautiful sunshine as well.

Congratulations to Perth & Kinross who were triumphant. They were convincing winners. They took the match points again all opponents. Those of us in the Northern Division were absolutely delighted for them.

VICTORIOUS – the Perth & Kinross team with the coveted trophy

Jillian Milne, Perth & Kinross Captain, emailed me that “[The girls] played some amazing golf and I’m so proud of them.” And absolutely so she should be … they played brilliantly.
