The Ladies British Amateur Stroke Play Championship was played at North Berwick earlier this month. There was sadly a shortage of East Lothian talent with Dawn Young the sole East Lothian player. Clara Young like so many of of the top young players had already returned to college and were unavailable. Conditions were difficult but Linn Grant was a worthy winner with a score of -4 over the four rounds.
Dawn failed to make the cut but we wish her good luck and better fortune when she plays in the Senior Ladies British Open Amateur Championship at Royal Belfast next week
Commonwealth Spoons -Finals
The finals of the Commonwealth Spoons were held at Alyth on Monday. ELLCGA was represented by five couples but sadly the Spoons have gone south to Dumfries and not to East Lothian. The course was in great condition but with not much run after so much rain and we all seemed to struggle with the greens and at times with a testing wind funnelling down between the trees.
The finals of the Stephen Gallacher Foundation were held last weekend at Kingsfield GC and Ala Gorka scored a great 42 points in the under 14 girls section. This left her after a play off in 2nd place. Ala also finished 2nd in the under 14g girl’s order of merit despite being unable to play in a number of competitions. Ala has cut her handicap from 16 to 10.7 this year. Well done Ala.
East of Scotland Championship
A reminder that this event is being played at Royal Burgess on Sunday 15th October. The closing date is Monday 26th September so get your entry in soon if you want to play.
The final of this year’s Summer Hole & Hole took place on Sunday between Dulcie Barnes and Susan Penman. After a hard fought Match Dulcie triumphed at the 17th. Congratulations to Dulcie on her win and well done Sue on reaching the final.
