Today we had over 52 children participating in our latest event over Pumpherston Golf Course.
Many thanks to all the Pumpherston Golf Club members for allowing us to use their course this afternoon. The course was in excellent condition and was a great test for the children in blustery conditions. Special thanks to Professional Richard Fyvie for all his help in organising the event and making it run so smoothly.
Our Professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns again were on hand to pass on useful tips to all the children.
Despite the difficult conditions the scoring was excellent yet again. Special mention to Angus Mather in the Under 10's scoring 34 in our 9 hole flag event and Cameron Johnstone, again Under 10, scoring 79 in our 18 hole stroke play.
For the prize giving, Stephen Gallacher was on hand to present the prizes which made it all the more special for the children.
Best wishes go to Bernard Gallacher and all his family from all the helpers, children and parents of the Foundation for a speedy recovery.
