AYRSHIRE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP - Inaugural championshp win for Caprington at Irvine Ravenspark

Caprington GC won the Ayrshire Club Championship for the first time in the 22 year history of the event, when the 2022 competition took place at Irvine Ravenspark on Sunday the 3rd of July.

Fourteen member clubs entered the championship, for the R.L. Crawford Trophy, in 2022 where the best two scores from three constituted the team score for the competing clubs.

The Irvine GC team of George Robertson (79), John Shanks (70) and Gareth Lamb (74) established the early leading team total of 144, which ultimately gave them second place in the tournament.

Steven McEwan laid the foundation for the Caprington victory with a two under par return of 69, the best individual return of the day, and alongside Robbie McFarlane (74) and Marc Smith (83), the Caprington team total of 143 took the lead by a single shot from Irvine. 

Despite some good individual scores in very testing, breezy, conditions, none of the remaining clubs could get closer than five strokes adrift of the Caprington club's winning score.

At the conclusion of the competition, the trophy and prizes were awarded to the successful team by Ayrshire Golf Association Vice President Andrew Gilligan.
