The Wee Braids Flag Event

The Wee Braids Flag Event

On a day that started with beautiful sunshine and ended with rain, we had 50 boys and girls playing round the newly names Wee Braids Golf Course. Many thanks to all at Edinburgh Leisure in their help in holding the event today, the course was in excellent condition and the conditions with the strong winds made it a very testing day for all the kids.

As usual though the kids rose to the occasion and performed to a high standard special mention to two of our players Rory Thain from the Under 12's who was round in a remarkable 33 shots and Callum Thom from the Under 10#s who was round in 35.

Many thanks also to The Braids Hill Driving range in allowing our Professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns to use their facilities in giving our kids their lessons for the day.

The results for the day were as follows:


1. Samantha MacGregor

2. Megan Linton

3. Orla O'Leary
