On a sunny yet windy and cold day down the east lothian coast at North Berwick we held our latest winter flag event, on North Berwick's Childrens Course. In total we had 60 children Under age 14 competitng on the day.
A special surprise awaited all the children on the day with Scotland's No 1 player Stephen Gallacher doing the starting. It was great that Stephen took time out of his busy schedule before the US Masters to spend some time with the children on the day.
The scoring on the day was exceptional and it shows that the winter coaching is working well and the children are taking all things on board. Out of the 60 children competing 24 managed to complete the short but tricky course in 36 shots or less, special mention to two of the players on the day, Cameron Spencer in te Under 14 boys who scored 30 and Katie Liddle in the Under 10 girls who scored 31, fantastic scoring from both players.
The full results for the day were as follows:
Under 14 Boys
1. Cameron Spencer Score 30
2. Archie Hamilton, Liam Currid and Ben Mace Score 32
3. Malachy Hayward Score 33
Under 10 Boys
