The Junior Spring Meeting was held today at Liberton Golf Club. As well as the 18 hole competition for those girls with handicaps, 8-hole and putting competitions were again held for those without handicaps. The weather was dry and sunny, although a bit chilly and certainly windy. The course was in good condition and the girls seemed to enjoy their games and had several stories to tell. One was how Rachael Watton and Gillian Simpson stood in awe and watched 10-year-old Emma Morrison birdie the first hole.

Our thanks go to all of the parents, grandparents and helpers for being present and helping with the non-handicap competitions, and to Liberton Golf Club for the use of their course and their hospitality. Thank you also to Joan Simpson for organising the day and for giving out the prizes.

The prizewinners, pictured above, were as follows:

1st Scratch: Rachael Watton (Mortonhall) 79

2nd Scratch: Gillian Simpson (Murrayfield) 87
