The final County Competition of the year is the East Division Championship hosted by Fife at Lundin Links. A perfect day for it and perhaps a little breezy with the wind picking up making it slightly more trickier for the final groups. A field of 86 played with 26 players representing Midlothian. Some varied scores returned within the field but as the last few groups returned many of the players scoring got lower and lower.

Well done to Team Fife beating Team Midlothian (Rachael Livingstone, Karen Ferguson-Snedden, Karen Marshall, Anne Hanson) by 2 points. Best 3 out of 4 scores counted for the 4 players nominated before play.

Fife 231 points
Midlothian 233 points
Stirling & Clackmannanshire 243 points
East Lothian 249 points
