The competition in the four sections of the 2010 Ayrshire Junior Golf League are nearing completion with all matches due to be played by 31st July.

SECTION A is led by Annanhill on 16 points from 4 games played, with Troon Welbeck on 10 points after 5 completed ties. With Troon St Meddans on 4 points from 4 matches and Prestwick St Nicholas, with 2 points from 3 matches, the other teams in the section cannot catch the leaders, leaving Annahill going through to the semi finals from the section.

In SECTION B all matches have been completed with Kilmarnock (Barassie) claiming the semi final place with 14 points, ahead of  Defending Champions West Kilbride on 10 points and Irvine Ravenspark.

With two games in the section remaining to be played, Largs face trips to both Belleisle and Irvine, with all three clubs still in with a chance to go through to the semi finals.
