A lovely day at Longniddry for the Babe Zaharias Competition, although later starters had somewhat windy conditions. A warning from the starters to make sure that you played a provisional ball if your shot went into the rough was essential as many players found out. Most importantly today the money raised for McMillan Cancer Support is over £5000.

This year’s winner of the Babe Zaharias Trophy is Anne Hanson (Turnhouse) with a gross 74.

This year’s winner of the Ultraplast Trophy (for best handicap score) is Kimberley Campbell (Harburn).

Congratulations to both our winners.

A hole in one from Elinor Blair was one of the highlights of the day.

We’ve been amazed (and really pleased) at how quickly the Babe Zaharias start sheet has filled up this year.

The start sheet is currently on ten minute intervals, and we have decided to shift this to nine minute intervals to squeeze out some extra places for people on the waiting list.

If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please just reply to this email (ellcga2@gmail.com).

This will mean some minor changes (no more than half an hour, and just a few minutes for most players) for everyone else. We’ll publish the start sheet as soon as possible after the closing date (30 June).

This will allow us to maximise our contribution to Macmillan Cancer Care.
