Another great turn out by the juniors for their monthly 9 hole competition at the Princes Course. Today 14 girls took part and all played extremely well with several personal best scores. It is great to see the advances the girls are all making and the improvements in their swings and course management. All of the girls appeared to enjoy themselves and our thanks go, as ever, to all of the mums and dads who came out to help and walk round with the girls and to Claire Hargan who kindly gave up her morning to help out.

It was great news to hear that Emma Morrison has gained her first ever handicap of 42 at Craigmillar Park and joining the handicap ranks for the first time certainly gave her a huge boost today. She had a tremendous score of 42 (net 21) to a par of 31 which included a birdie at the tricky 2nd hole. Her score could have been much better had she not ended with a triple bogey. Congratulations Emma and good luck to you, Julia Smith and Lisa Macpherson when you play in the regional finals of the Wee Wonders Tournament at Troon on the 30th June.

1st Handicap: Emma Morrison (42-21) net 21
