What a glorious day we had today for the May visit of the Juniors to the Princes Course. In gorgeous sunshine (with a little wind!), 10 girls turned out for the 9 holes. A big welcome was made to Joanna Lamb who joined in the fun for the first time and said she had enjoyed some of her golf. All of the girls played some great shots and have all taken something home to remember. There were various personal bests for the 9 holes and a remarkable chip in at the second made it a day to remember for Lisa Macpherson. The first group of Emma Morrison, Julia Smith and Sophie Aitchison showed some stunning stuff to their helpers and came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively, Julia losing out by 1 shot on the last 6-hole count back. According to one of the adults walking round with the group, there is some real talent amongst the girls – and it was not just amongst those 3! It was great to see the girls afterwards, chatting together and recounting their various trials and tribulations over their sandwiches in the Braids Driving Range.

Our thanks go to all of the Mums and Dads who turned out to help and to Fiona Hunter for kindly agreeing to give up time this month to come along.

The results were as follows:

1st Non-handicap: Emma Morrison 55 (better last 6)
2nd Non-handicap: Julia Smith 55
3rd Non-handicap: Sophie Aitchison 58

(No golfers with handicaps took part today.)

Points after month 3 of the running competition:

Heather Laing: 6 points
Carla Maran: 4 points

Julia Smith: 9 points
Emma Morrison: 7 points
Sophie Aitchison: 6 points
Kirsten McCorquodale: 6 points

Thank you all for coming along and taking part today. It is great to see you all enjoying yourselves and doing so well and also great to see you all making friends with one another. I hope you enjoyed it as much as the adults enjoyed being out with you.
