Europe triumphs over the US

The US Kids Tournament returned to East Lothian with The Glen hosting two age groups, 12 and 14 year olds.  The competition took place over three days, the 28, 29 and 30 May culminating in a horribly wet final day's competition.  It was a challenging day for all those competing, but yet again their resilience shone through.  The best and most consistent scoring was achieved by 12 year old Sebastian Desoisa from Gibraltar who shot rounds of 71, 70 and 72 for a 3 under total of 213.  While the top 14 year old, Alex Lynch from the United States trailed the European by 5 shots with rounds of 74, 67 and 77 for a total of 218.

Double Success for Glen Ladies

Nancy Thorne and Ann Nimmo represented the Glen at the SGU Regional Medal Finals after qualifying last season as overall winners of the SGU silver and bronze medals played over the season.

They played on Friday 3rd May at Haddington and both came third in their respective divisions.  They will now go through to the Grand Final to be played on the Eden Course at St Andrews in June.  A fantastic double. 

Congratulations to Nancy and Ann and good luck for the final.

5 Year Fixed Wire Testing
