Our East Lothian Ladies Squad team played the annual match against the Gullane Men for the Percy Vere Trophy on Sunday. The matches were all very close and it is with great pleasure that I can say that we won the trophy this year 3 1/2 – 2 1/2. Congratulations to Kay Lannin, Jill McNicoll, Susan Penman, Ann Sewell, Barbara Biggart, Elinor Blair, Grace Crawford, Gail McKill, Mary Lou Watkins, Pam Hall, Hazel Saunders and Karen Fullerton for representing the County. Many thanks to Gullane Golf for inviting us again and hosting us to the golf and a magnificent high tea.

Many of the East Lothian Clubs host open competitions throughout the year and it was thought that these should be publicised on the ELLCGA website.

I have collated information from several websites and this can be found at https://www.ellgolf.co.uk/county-events/open-competitions/

Opens are a great way of playing a variety of clubs in the area, they can be booked online, though the club website or by a printed entry form depending on the club.

There are several sites that can be accessed to help you enter:

Scottish Golf https://www.scottishgolf.org/players/club-members/open-competitions/

Golf Empire https://www.golfempire.co.uk/

Happy Golf https://happygolf.co.uk/

Printed forms can usually also be found at the individual clubs website.

If you would like any other information posted or if I have made any errors please let me know by email to: lesleywood@blueyonder.co.uk

Junior Convenor, Frances Hall sent this photo of the East Lothian Junior League team at Pinehurst.

There are more photos and stories on the ELJL website, it makes for a really interesting read.
