Winter was still very much in the air for the first event of the ILGU Scratch Cup Circuit at Carlow Golf Club yesterday. However the high winds and icy squalls did not phase 16-year-old Aine Donegan (Woodstock) who, following rounds of 78 and 77, secured a three shot victory over Louise Coffey (Malone).

The 64-strong field included Irish International Shannon Burke (Ballinrobe) and High Performance Panellist Lauren Walsh (Castlewarden) who finished in third and fourth place respectively.

The circuit travels north to Royal Portrush Valley Course for the Mabel Harrison Scratch Cup on March 23rd where Paula Grant (Lisburn) cruised to a three shot victory over Jessica Ross (Clandeboye) in 2018.
