Lochend Golf Club




The week of surprizes continued all the way to the final as Jaci Moriarty held her nerve to win the Ladies Championship at the 18th Hole. The match with 3-times Champion Eileen Gillespie was a close tense affair with Jaci taking the early lead and then crucial putts at times kept her just in front all the way. 1-up at the last with the nerves jangling and having just played a poor 17th hole, Jaci's approach shot to the 18th made the green and with Eileen finding the sand a deep breath and a couple of putts ensured Jaci's name will be proudly added to the list of Champions. This is the second part of a remarkable double for Jaci who won the Midlothian B Championship earlier in the year but today's achievement must top the lot.


Lorna Lynch carried on her successfull season by winning the B Section Championship. Having won a couple of Lochend Stablefords and slashed her handicap at Newbattle ladies open recently Lorna proved too strong on the day for Joan Gray, a twice previous winner of the B Championship herself.
Well done to all and many thanks to the ladies for supporting the day.
