Keep improving your game through the Winter! See PAIS and U14 Winter Series info below –
From Kate Green 4th October 2023 – Hi there, just a quick reminder that our 2023/24 Performance Athletes in Sport (Golf) Squad and Winter Development Squads @ Loretto Academy closes for registrations this Friday 6th of October.

I am also looking to try to pull together girls that are in P7 – S6 that either have a handicap or the ability to gain one. If you could let me know if you have any girls in this category at your club or ask them to contact me so I can gauge numbers that would be great.
The 2023/23 Junior Golf East Lothian (Schools) Order of Merit is underway.
This is open to any junior that lives in East Lothian and has an official handicap.
Secondary aged pupils are given priority and then if I have space I can include P7’s.
These competitions are a mixture of 9 and 18 holes and count towards handicap.
We have 32 booked in for Longniddry this Friday.

I am also running a series of Winter Stablefords for U14s with or without handicaps.
Flyer attached and below.
Please see the attached from Kate Green.
Morning All. Please find below details of the 2023/24 Junior Golf East Lothian Order of Merit events. I run these events free of charge from September to May with the support of our local clubs. These events are open to juniors that attend high school in the first instance but primary aged juniors with handicaps can be accommodated if space allows. This information has been circulated to eligible juniors that I have on my register as well as to all high schools. If you can also share this information with your juniors as appropriate this will help raise the profile of these opportunities that will help to ensure that we don’t miss anyone that might like to play. There are a few dates that I’m still firming up venues for which I’ll update online in due course. We are looking for courses that have a measured 9 hole course for these dates which are in the depth of winter so any suggestions would be welcome. The pupils have to be able to get round 9 holes straight after school on a Friday so time is tight if we tee off at 1pm. Any questions just let me know. Best wishes, Kate
