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.

What started off as a fairly nice summer’s day quickly became wintry thanks to a stiff north easterly “breeze”. The front 9 was playing into the wind and proved difficult for many players, not the only problem though as at least one snack bar was snaffled by a crow at the first.

Overall winner: Isabel Nisbet: 70

At the start of the day Jenni and Mary Lou were helping to fly the flag for ELLCGA at Longniddry

A perfect golfing day with hardly any wind and a very pleasant temperature saw Grace Crawford produce a fantastic scratch score of 74. Grace’s score included 3 birdies and 11 pars, two of the birdies being 2’s at the 6th and the 16th. Grace was the winner of division 1 with a net score of 71 just beating Anne Rorrison on a count back, Tina Mooney was third with a net 72.

Our winner with Alyssa Balding and Jill McNicoll
