Today we held our first ever flag/stroke play event at Duddingston Golf Club. Many thanks to all the members of Duddingston in giving us the use of their course this afternoon. The course was in excellent condition and the staff looked after us all well.
In total we had 80 boys and girls taking part on a day in which we had a couple of showers but overall was an excellent day for golf. We held our normal stroke play event but had 7 hole flag event over a slightly longer course.
Jane Connachan and David Burns again were on hand to give children lessons throughout the day.
The scoring was excellent on a very testing course, special mention to Connor Wilson who in the Under 14 stroke play section scored a 71 and Jame Cameron scoring 29 in the under 14 flag event.
