The new season of Golf Sixes is about to start. There are six Teams competing. The schedule is detailed below and all dates are on our Calendar on our website. The Sixes are an important part of keeping our active League refreshed with new Players after they obtain handicaps. We already have some 8 and 9 year olds playing in League Matches. We will publish the Golf Sixes results and League Table on our website Katy McNicoll, a professional at The West Links, North Berwick, is organising this years events.

There has been a lot of fun in the playing of these events, run by our Clubs in partnership with Scottish Golf, and other volunteers, so many thanks to them. All the earlier results can be seen below. In the final fixture at the “Wee Course” at North Berwick West Links, home advantage paid off and West Links Juniors won the day with 141 points. Emilia and Aedan of WLJ were the high scoring pair with 50 points. The League however was won by The Glen with Gullane a close second. The Glen finished with 31 points and Gullane 27 points. It’s been a fantastic effort by all to run the league this year and very much hope it continues next year. The East Lothian Junior League donated prizes for all the Teams, and we hope to see these youngsters competing in our ELJG League events in future! A big thanks are due to Katy McNicholl and all the helpers throughout the year.
