Our thanks are due to Craigielaw Golf Club and to Neil McAllister for their hospitality at Craigielaw today. The match results are as detailed below “Read More.” The League table has been updated. Gullane are still the leaders after a 2 – 1 win against the host Team. Longniddry had a 3 – 0 win over 2nd placed Haddington, so they jump into 2nd place. Dunbar and The Glen maintain their challenges with 2 – 1 wins over Tantallon and Kilspindie respectively. Musselburgh’s 2 – 1 win over North Berwick keeps them in touch with the leaders. The next match is at Musselburgh GC on the 9th August. Some players have commented to me on the alleged “Zach Johnson” incident at the Open. See link here to the R&A comment. Zach is totally vindicated. Let’s hear no more of it please? [Read More…]
