Thanks are due to Dunbar Golf Club for hosting our MD3 on their excellent course and to the Management and Staff for hosting our 59 competitors. Special thanks go to those who helped on the day – Shona Paton, Ric Foulner, Dave Northcott and our Starter, Dunbar member Joe Gillan. The Home Team won the Team event with their 4 counting scores averaging over 40 points each! With 161 points they were 9 points ahead of joint runners-up – The Glen and Craigielaw, but The Glen had a better 5th score so picked up 2nd place. Pride of place in the individual scores went to Callum Kenneally playing for Dunbar who scored 39 points with a gross score of 68 round the par 71 course. The best net points total was 43 scored by Andrew Milne of The Glen. All scores have been posted to WHS. Team Scores are below. Individual scores can be seen on the Leaderboards on the App. The West Links Team take over the lead in the League Table, with East Lothian Girls and Craigielaw close behind. MD4 is at Haddington on Sunday the 25th July. Players can enter online through Golf Genius. PACE OF PLAY – Congratulations to all the Competitors – I could see that there were often 3 matches on the 18th hole at the same time, one on the tee, one on the fairway, and one on the green, so most groups were – KEEPING UP WITH THE MATCH IN FRONT! Well done! The last match got round in around 3.5 hours which is a good sign for the future. Keep it up! Don’t let gaps in front of your game developers, and if they do – speed up! Prizes will be issued at the next MD which the players attend. The Orders of Merit will soon be compiled – its the best 5 out of 10 scores, so keep entering the MDs to give yourself a chance!
