Winter Fun at Swanston

Winter Fun at Swanston

Today we held the last of our winter events at Swanston GC. On a beautiful winters morning 48 boys and girls, competed over the excellent 9 hole course n our flag and stroke play events.

Many thanks to everyone from Swanston GC, especially Mike Robson and Captain Graeme Millar who presented the prizes to the kids on the day. The course was in excellent condition considering the recent weather and everyone was well fed and watered in the bar afterwards.

We had our Professionals Jane Connachan and James McGhee giving out some useful tips before the children competed, this clearly worked well going by the scoring, many thanks Jane and James.

Also thank you to Craig Martin from We Film Golf who was on hand to video some of the action today for our fund raising dinner on Thursday, can't wait to see the video!

Over the winter we ran a Winter Series Event at Swanston in which it qualified for you to enter a prize draw for a lesson with Stephen Gallacher and his Coach Alan McCloskey the winner for the was Maisie Witt, well done Maisie and we will be in touch to organise that soon.
