Fantastic Finals Day at Kingsfield

Fantastic Finals Day at Kingsfield

On a fabulous day we held our 2015 Finals Day at Kingsfield Golf Club, Linlithgow. In total we had 145 boys and girls taking part, which with all the parents attending meant around 350 attending. Stephen Gallacher was on hand for all the children and there for all the presentation of prizes.

Many thanks to everyone at Kingsfield Golf Club for their help on the day, special mention to Jane Allan and Robert Arkley for all there hard work and to our volunteers, too many to mention on the day, but also a mention to our volunteers who have also done a fantastic job all year, without them the events would not run as well or as smoothly, so thank you to Stuart Johnston, Jim McDiarmid, Cameron McDiarmid, Matthew McDiarmid, Justin White, Jeff Little, Graham Ewart and Louis Knowles.

We also had help from Golffit with Craig Tumblety and Alex Woods given all the kids an excellent warm up routine before they start, many thanks Craig 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 by our Professional Jane Connachan. Fantastic job Jane.

The golf on the day was of an exceptional standard and befitting a finals day event. The Under 14 Boys Stroke play being decided with a 3 man play off with Jack Gallacher coming through on the second extra hole with a fantastic 2. The Under 10 boys also went to a two man play off with Andrew Hendry and Josh Beveridge renewing there rivalry with Andrew Hendry edging this one on the first extra hole. Also congratulations to the following flag players, Jamie Grainger and Robert Hill in the Under 14 Boys, Jake Johnston in the Under 10 boys and Joseph Kelly in the Under 8 boys who all have now qualified to play in the stroke play events next year
