Today we held our first event of 2014 at Kingsfield Golf Club, Linlithgow. We had 67 boys and girls taking part in our Under 14, 9 hole Texas Scramble. There was some doubt regards the event with regards the rain fall within the last week but full credit to all the staff at Kingsfield Golf Club for having the course in excellent condition for the children on the day.
Many thanks to all the staff at Kingsfield Golf Club today for making us all feel so welcome and keeping us well fed and watered throughout the day. Also many thanks to Jane Connachan and David Burns for providing all the children with lessons throughout the day
The standard of the golf was excellent on the day and clearly all the winter coaching seems to be paying dividends. On the day we had 14 of the 17 teams scoring 32 or better. There was a tie for the top 3 places with 5 teams all scoring 30, fantastic.
We also held a adult and junior team putting competition on the day for everyone, which was fun for all and very competitive
The winners on the day were as follows
