I saw this video and thought that it would be good to share the exploits of our champion at The Machrie on the Isle of Islay. It was the venue for a spectacular end of season tournament for golfers from the Barrie Douglas Foundation, Paul Lawrie Foundation and Stephen Gallacher Foundation.

Our thanks to all the Players, Parents, Junior Convenors and particularly Frances Hall for managing our East Lothian Ladies Junior team who have achieved so much this year.

The East of Scotland Championship was held at North Berwick GC today.  It was a calm, mostly dry day but quite cold.  We had a full field of 69 players from across the four counties (East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian, Stirling & Clackmannanshire).  Many of the competitors had not played North Berwick before, and enjoyed discovering its unique features and world-famous holes.  The course was in superb condition and the clubhouse made everyone feel very welcome.
Congratulations to the 2019 East of Scotland Champion, Karen Ferguson-Snedden and the winning Midlothian team.
