Great Day at Portobello

Great Day at Portobello

Today we were at Portobello Golf Course, many thanks to Edinburgh Leisure for all their help on the day.

In total we had 64 boys and girls competing on another warm and sunny day. Many thanks to our Professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns on the day and also our starter Jeff Little, not forgetting our ever present receptionist Louis Knowles.

The course was in excellent condition for the children and helped produce excellent scoring. Special mention to Annie Wilson who in the Under 16 flag event scored 34, now qualifying Annie for our stroke play events. In the stroke play events the lowest score was from our Under 10 player Aidan O'Hagan who scored 35 for the longer 9 holes, excellent scoring.
