Rachel takes the title for a second year.

Rachel Hanlon, East Girls Champion 2010

Congratulations to Rachel Hanlon from St Regulus in Fife who successfully defended her East Girls Champion title by beating Alison Goodwin of Glenbervie by 2&1 in a very closely contested final at Haddington Golf Club. On a very blustery afternoon the standard of golf was high and was enjoyed by a gallery of spectators.

Champion Rachel with runner-up Alison and the two beaten semi-finalists Gillian Simpson and Kate McIntosh

The first of the semi-final matches saw Alison beating Gillian Simpson (Murrayfield) by 3&2. In the other semi, Rachel and Kate McIntosh (Broomieknowe) had a very good battle which ended on the 18th where Kate missed a short putt giving Rachel a place in the final.

Our sincere thanks go to Haddington Golf Club for kindly allowing us courtesy of course to play both the Summer Meeting and Championship and for their very kind hospitality in the Clubhouse. We would also like to thank Dawn Young for her kind help as starter for the Summer Meeting
