Craigentinny was blessed with some lovely sunshine as the 2024 Ladies Open got under way.
The greenkeepers had done a sterling job preparing the course, however there was nothing they could have done about the rough.
Having cut as much of the rough as possible, the objective of the day was just keep out.  The rest of the course was in fine nick.
Unusually, Lochenders didn’t exactly sweep the main prizes. Mandy McBain was “Best Lochend Lady” and Lorna Lynch was “Best Lochend Senior”. However we made up for it by bagging a fair number of the sponsors prizes.
Jennifer Bryans (Harburn) scored the best scratch round of the day with her 77.
It showed just how tough the course was actually playing when there was only one nett score under 70.
That of course came from the Overall Winner, Comiston Lady Fiona Hunter with a score of 68.
Followed by three players who all carded 70 (Susan Greenfield from Swanston, Katy Gillies from Melville and Kayleigh Cane from Braehead)
Fiona is well known to those of us who are members of Comiston Ladies and her bubbly personality shone through as she accepted the trophy, well done Fiona.
Just to re-iterate what Captain Jaci Moriarty said.  Grateful thanks to all the helpers, the Bar staff, Peter Anthony (catering), all of whom had a long day ensuring everything ran smoothly. Also thanks to all our sponsors, your generosity as always was much appreciated.
And most importantly thanks to every one of you who supported the event, its great seeing some old and new friends being warmly welcomed by Lochend members.
See you all again next year.

This win leapfrogs Kelly into top spot in the League, two points ahead of Jaci Moriarty

Congratulations to Bren Ford who won the Salvesen Shield today.
For a while it looked like Maurice Paterson was going to do it again with his 64 posted early on. However, Bren came in, very late in the day, with a 64 of his own to win by the last 6-hole countback. A very close-run competition. And Maurice was left to rue his little faux pas at the 17th.
