What a final!! The battle of the generations was won by 12 year old Grace Crawford by 1 hole, although Lesley Johnston really made her fight for it. At one stage Lesley was 4 down but used all her experience to come back to 1 down with a great 3 from the sand at 13. Grace won the next hole narrowly missing an eagle putt. A brilliant birdie at the long, par 4, 15th brought Lesley back to 1 down. After slightly wayward tee shots the players halved the 16th. The last two holes were also halved, giving Grace the victory.
Thanks must go to the caddies for all their efforts today.
The sun finally came out and allowed the presentation to take place outside, a fitting end to a week of great golf at Longniddry. Many thanks to all at Longniddry for their hospitality and friendliness, we were all made to feel very welcome. The course was in excellent condition so a big thank you to the greenkeepers.
