We held our first ever Xmas Texas Scramble at the Hermitage Golf Club today in Edinburgh. The weather was kind to us, with the children enjoying a bright winters day. In total we had 52 children taking part.

Many thanks to all the staff at the Hernitage Golf Club for all their help. especially Sabrina and Fiona. All the children had great fun on the day, with our helpers on the day getting into the spirit of Xmas with Santa and Elf hats, even our starter, Stephen Gallacher joined in.

Special thanks also to pour Professinals Jane Connachan and David Burns for their coaching on the day.
