Well done to all the Midlothian Girls participating and returning scores over 2 rounds strokeplay qualifying in the Scottish Girls Amateur last week at Blairgowrie. After qualifying, in 9th position Carys Irvine, Craigielaw, qualified for the Scratch event with a total of 154. Carys met tough opposition against Claire McLaughlin from West Kilbride who was then beaten by the eventual Scottish Amateur Champion Katy Alexander from Blairgowrie.

After the strokeplay qualifying, Lucy Morrison Craigmillar Park, Mollaidh Nicholson Prestonfield, Lucy Hall Craigmillar Park and Kirsten Murison Craigmillar Park all qualified for the Handicap event. Lucy Hall and Mollaidh were beaten in the first round. Kirsten and Lucy Morrison both won round 1 but unfortunately met each other in the quarter finals for a friendly Craigmillar Park battle. Lucy won through to the semi final and met Kirsten Millar from Strathmore and won comfortably 5/4 through to the final. In a close contest for the Handicap Trophy, Lucy squeezed out Grace Evans from Royal Waterloo GC.

Congratulations Lucy Morrison, Craigmillar Park, Scottish Amateur Handicap Champion.
