Autumn update

There has been so much happening and to round off the season by winning the Scottish Junior Team Championships is just incredible. (See previous post).  The season is nearing an end and unfortunately the medal winners medal had to be abandoned on Saturday due to a torrential downpour and hailstones! The 36 hole scratch Strokeplay trophy takes place this Saturday (8th October) and on Sunday Cameron Ledingham, Mark Brooks, Danny Hendry, Sam Hall, Sam Westwood, Lucy Morrison, Megan Linton, Emily Rigg all take part in The Stephen Gallacher Foundation Race to Dunbar finals.

Winter coaching starts at the Braids this Saturday at 3pm. We will also be holding monthly 10 hole Adult/Junior scrambles once a month on Saturday afternoons, with times staring from 1pm. Dates are:

  • Saturday 28 October
  • Saturday 18 November
  • Saturday 9 December
  • Saturday 20 January
  • Saturday 24 February

You can enter as a team of one adult and two juniors.  The adult does not need to be a member. Or three juniors can enter as a team, but one must have a handicap of 18 or less. Or you can enter as an individual or a as two and we will try to team you up. Open to ALL junior members.
Those with handicaps can enter online.  For juniors without handicaps please email us at cpjuniorgolf@gmail.com  to enter no later than the Wednesday morning before the event. 

Conor O'Toole was selected  to play in the Italian International Individual Under 16s Championship and put in some great performances in a very strong field, reducing his handciap to 1 into the bargain. He was also part of a 3 man Scottish Golf team competing for the Nations Cup at the event. 

Sam Hall has continued his amazing year with even more silverware, In the Independent Schools Golf Association tournament at Kingsacre, he won the U15 Boys Competition with a 69.  He followed this up by recording the best scratch score of 69 over a very windy Strathtyrum Course (St Andrews) in the St Leonards National U15 Junior Golf Championships.  Not to be outdone, sister Lucy, was third scratch and handicap in the U13 event at Craigielaw.

Our Tiger Cubs have been busy as well.  Congratulations to new members Craig and Katie MacKenzie on gaining their bronze certificates and many thanks to some of our more experienced junior members who have been out playing with and encouraging the Tiger Cubs.  Great to see.

We also held a very successful Pig Racing night on Saturday 23rd September.  This was the night before the Scottish Team Championships and although the organisers were very tired it obviously didn't affect the team.  Now we know how to prepare for big events in the future! This was a well attended, fun family evening. Thank you very much to all our sponsors, to everyone who bought pigs and all who contributed on the night. We raised a fantastic amount of money for our junior funds and some of the money raised will be donated to charity (to be decided).
