Welcome to the Fleming Watson League Season 2018
Congratulations to the winners of this year's league competition Fereneze Golf Club. With only one match lost during the season, which incidentally went down to the very last putt, it's been a great campaign for the boys from Barrhead. It has also been a long road back from the last time the club took this title in 2001, but Junior Convenor Tom Kelly is delighted with all the hard work his team put in this year and the improvements they have all made to their individual games. In second place is Cathkin Braes who have put in a great performance this year, having struggled over the last few seasons to find any consistency. All credit to Junior Convenor Michael O'Neill and his team after losing their first match at home to remain undefeated for the remainder of the season.
Both these clubs will now represent the FWL in the Junior Team Golf Championships, details of which we will have shortly.
