The ESVLGA Spring Meeting was held today at Gullane No 3.
Despite very strong winds there were some great scores.
Congratulations to the winner Dorothy Thomson who was 4 under CSS.
The strong winds caused putting to be very difficult with the 4th green proving to be the hardest, with many tales of woe being told in the clubhouse.
Well done to all 66 ladies who braved the elements and congratulations to those who produced great scores.
The CSS was 71 an increase of two on the SSS 69. Par 69.
