Northern Counties include American pair in team for

Northern Division Jamboree at Edzell

Northern Counties Ladies Golf Association team selectors are pinning their hopes on reaching the Scottish women's county finals this year on two American members of Royal Dornoch Golf Club, who are spending summer months in Dornoch.

Ashley Rose, who is from South Carolina played, in the county championships at Brora last month and made a good impression. Her American friend who has been a member of Dornoch for 20 years and holds a very low handicap is Sandy Jackson from New York. They will be joined in the team by Claire Riddell and Cara Thomson, bringing the Royal Dornoch representation up to four, half the team.

Completing the line up for the Northern Division Jamboree against Aberdeenshire, Perth and Kinross, and Scottish champion Angus at Edzel Golf Club, Angus from June 11 to 13 is new county champion Hannah McCook (Grantown on Spey), Carinne Taylor (Nairn), Kerri Harper (Inverness) and the experienced Meg Sievwright (Buckpool).
