2016 Finishes in Style at Kingsfield

2016 Finishes in Style at Kingsfield

On a fabulous day we held our 2016 Finals Day at Kingsfield Golf Club, Linlithgow. In total we had 152 boys and girls taking part, which with all the parents attending meant around 360 attending.

The day was made that bit more special with Stephen Gallacher being able to attend the presentations after flying from Holland that day after playing in the KLM Open

Many thanks to everyone at Kingsfield Golf Club for their help on the day, the course and food were fantastic, special mention to Jane Allan, Robert Arkley and Lee Fraser for all their hard work and to Stephen's wife Helen and our many volunteers on the day for their fantastic efforts.

To my special assistant Stuart Johnston and our merry band of volunteers, Louis Knowles, Jim McDiarmid, Val McDiarmid, Jeff Little, David McAdam, Justin White, Tracey Johnston, Niamh Johnston, Jake Johnston, Robert Johnston, Lisa Gallagher, Carol Gash, Matthew McDiarmid, Cameron McDiarmid and Lynne Little, without these people our events don't run, some of these people helped today but all have been a great help throughout the year, we as a Foundation salute you all.

We also had help today from Golffit with Kelly and Alex giving all the kids an excellent warm up routine before they start, many thanks Kelly and Alex..

On top of our main event we also held our "Short Game" World Match Play Championship in which all of the children competed in , this was superbly run, as always by our Professional Jane Connachan. Fantastic job Jane.

Our Professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns have done a fantastic job for the Foundation and the proof of how good they are is shown not only by the scoring today but by the improvement all the boys and girls have made throughout the year, Well done

The golf on the day was of an exceptional standard and befitting a finals day event. Cameron Adam Under 14 boys, Josh Beveridge Under 10 Boys and Fergus Brown leading the way with excellent one under par scores of 33, with Samantha MacGregor in the Under 18 girls scoring a great 39.

Also congratulations to Ryan Stoyell and Adam Laidlaw who both completed the flag course in 35 and 36 shots respectively.

This event also seen the completion of our year long Order of Merits in the stroke play section. A fantastic competitive event throughout the year for the Under 14, Under 12 and Under 10 Boys and under 18 and Under 14 girls.
