The joint event with the Stephen Gallacher Foundation and East Lothian Clubgolf, took place on Friday 4th May at Dunbar Golf Club. There were, in total, 31 entrants - 29 boys and 2 girls.
The weather, although dry, was extremely cold for all the participants so congratulations to every one of them for completing their round on the day. Despite this cold weather everyone had a great time, the course itself was in excellent condition with fast greens which made it tricky for some.
The day was organised by Kate Green of East Lothian Clubgolf, who again did an excellent job in ensuring everything went smoothly on the day, with excellent help from my colleague Stuart Johnston.
As usual all the kids received their free lesson on the day, with excellent tips being given from our Professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns.
The golf again was of an excellent standard on a slightly longer course. Due to the numbers attending we held an under 12 boys event and an under 10 girls event.
In the Under 10 girls event Hannah Darling managed to hold off Katie Liddle to win the main prize.
While in the Under 12 boys event, Euan MacIver and Archie Wilson tied for victory with an excellent score of 40 for the 9 holes
Two special mentions:
Archie Wilson was the only under 10 boy on the day, he is actually aged 7, and he managed to not only compete with the older boys but beat them ( Stephen beware Archie is after you!).
Alistair Fell became the first youngster in a Stephen Gallacher Foundation day to have a hole in one, Alistair hold his tee shot on the 3rd hole at Dunbar, well done Alistair.
The winners on the day were:
Under 10 Girls
1. Hannah Darling
2. Katie Liddle
Under 12 Boys
Tied 1. Euan MacIver and Archie Wilson
3. Lewis Purves
(all winners qualify for the Finals Day at Kingsfield Golf Club, Linlithgow on Sunday 23rd September 2012)
Well done everyone on the day and I look forward to seeing you all again at our future events. The next event is at Haddington on Friday 8th June, first tee time 2pm. Entries are limited to 30 on this event and currently it is full but if you wish to be on the waiting list please send entries through to East Lothian Clubgolf by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to accommodate
