Even although it is half-term, five girls turned out for the monthly 9 holes at the Princes Course. It was ideal conditions, although a little chilly and the wind did blow a little towards the end. Congratulations to Emma Morrison who won the handicap with a 2 over par net 33, playing off her newly acquired CONGU handicap of 36. Second was Heather Laing with a net 39, playing off her recently cut handicap of 24. Rumour has it that Heather it on the hunt for a new foursomes partner after her dad did not come up trumps at the recent SLGA Adult/Junior Foursomes competition at Arbroath!

In the non-handicap section, Caitlin Turner, fresh from a fabulous victory over her mum at Baberton yesterday, won with 67. Second was new member Heather Kynoch with a 73 while third was Lisa Macpherson with a 75, furious at just missing out on her best ever score.

Tomorrow sees some of the juniors heading to North Berwick’s Children’s Course for the Girls’ in Golf Fun Team competition. There was much excitement at the Princes Course today with thoughts of meeting Catriona Matthews tomorrow who is turning out to not only watch the girls but also to present the prizes. I hope you all enjoy the day and have fun meeting Catriona.

A quick reminder that November sees a 9-hole adult/junior competition at the Princes Course. This will be on Sunday 15th November with the first tee time being 10.30 am. If anyone has not yet entered but would like to, there is stil time! Please e-mail Tracy with details of name, partner’s name and handicaps. Please note that you do not need a handicap to enter and you do not even need a partner. Let me know and I will find someone for you.
