A fantastic day was had by 162 MCLGA members and guests at Duddingston today, continuing our centenary celebrations.

Our Captain and President got the event off to a flying start when they teed off first this morning bright and early, and whizzed round in their buggy, putting their names on all the nearest the hole/ longest drive notices. (Yes it was a Tri Am but they thought they would be different).

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves for the first 6 holes (1 ball counting) and even the next 6 holes were fun with 2 balls counting. But when we all got to all 3 counting the pressure mounted, especially for my team (sorry ladies!). Some great golf was played, with ‘longest drives’ that seemed unreal and ‘nearest pins’ that I am sure must have been placed there ….and unbelievably, two holes in one by Pat Jackson of Kingsknowe at the 6th and Linda Boyle of Harburn at the 14th. Congratulations ladies.

Fun was the name of the game today and lots of laughter could be heard around the course and in the clubhouse. Thanks to everyone who took part, our guests from East Lothian, Fife and Stirling and Clackmannanshire counties and to everyone who helped with the organisation and helped on the desk, especially Karen Ballantyne, Mairi Pollock and Agnes Leslie. Thanks also to Duddingston Golf Club for all their support in running the event.

The results were as follows:

1st Moyra Statham, Lynn Cackett & Sandra Cackett (Broomieknowe) (134)

2nd Pam Williamson, Joan Marshall & Karen Marshall (Baberton) (137)
3rd Linda Allen, Louise MacGregor & Elizabeth Goodwin (Stirling & Clackmannanshire) (138)
