What a gorgeous day it was today as the juniors once again ventured out on to the Hermitage Golf Course for their monthly game of golf. Nine juniors turned up and birdies were the order of the day. In the handicap section, Julia Smith birdied the 5th while Emma Morrison birdied both the 3rd and the 5th. Not to be outdone, the non-handicap girls also threw in the odd birdie, with Kim Naysmith recording hers at the 1st and 7th, Caitlin Turner at the 7th and 10th and Ellie Ferguson at the 7th. Shot of the day, however, went to Emma Fairgrieve who holed from 40 yards for a 5 at the 7th sending up cheers which could be heard all around the course.

Well done to all the girls who played and thank you to Sharon Macpherson who kindly organised this month’s competition and to Noreen Fenton and Linda Caine who turned out to help.

The results from today were:


1st: Julia Smith 57 less 24 – net 33
2nd: Emma Morrison 57 less 23 – net 34
3rd: Sophie Aitchison 68 less 24 – net 44


1st: Kim Naysmith 59 (BIH)
2nd: Caitlin Turner 59
3rd: Lisa Macpherson 98

On the overall leaderboard of the running competition, with 2 months left to go, the non-handicap section is close with Kim Naysmith one point ahead of Caitlin Turner on 18 points with Lisa Macpherson 3rd on 9 points. In the handicap section, Emma Morrison still holds onto her lead on 9 points, with Julia Smith second on 5 points, and Sophie Aitchison, Jane Finlay and Carla Maran tied 3rd equal on 3 points.
