East of Scotland Championship at Luffness on Sunday 27th Sept

The 2015 East of Scotland Championship hosted by East Lothian was played at Luffness New Golf Club.The competition was well supported by all the Counties involved (Fife, Midlothian, East Lothian and Stirling and Clackmannanshire) with the result that many hopeful competitors were unfortunately balloted out. There were 48 competitors and everyone played in glorious sunshine with no wind, very unusual for a Links Course. 

We now have the East of Scotland champion , Hannah Scott.   She won with an excellent scratch score of 70 - a new Ladies course record at Luffness New, beating the previous record of 75, held by Keren Ward (East Lothian) in the 2013 ELLCGA Spring Meeting. Very well done Hannah. Brilliant golf.

Hannah also helped our Midlothian team to win the County team cup with a score of 219. 

Our team consisted of Hannah Scott, Gabrielle Macdonald, Karen Marshall and Wendy Nicholson. Very well done to you all. 

 A big thank you to the East Lothian for organising this event this year.
