The League Secretary has now returned from a long holiday and is trying to catch up! The Scottish Boys Championship at Dunbar, which worryingly did not have a full entry, featured only 22 boys from East Lothian Clubs. There was some good performances from boys with Lothians connections. Keiran Cantley of Liberton and Ronan Higgins of Loretto reached the last 8 but both lost in extra holes. Ronan, also a member of North Berwick, lost at the 19th to Tom Foster, of the Merchants GC. Tom is the current Junior Club Champion of North Berwick GC, and he reached the semi final, but lost to the eventual winner Will Porter of Carnoustie. Well done boys! Full scoring can be seen here.
The Junior Team Golf finals in Spain were held in March 2015. Gullane, who had won the Scottish Championship, were a disappointing 7th out of the 8 finalists from the 4 Home Countries. However, Andrew Ni, did win the Paul Casey Trophy as the Category 1 player winning the most points. The Gullane Team comprised Andrew, Joanne Free, William Ladbrooke, Graeme and James Chalmers, and Calum Black. Some pride was restored when they easily defeated Maesteg from Wales in their last match. The provisional dates for the Scottish Semi Finals and Finals in 2015 are:- the 12th and 13th September for the Semi Finals, possibly in the Lothians area, and the 25th October for the Final. There will be a practice day on the 24th. All dates now on our events calendar.
