Braid Hills, Saturday 12 February
The event was based at the Braid Hills Golf Centre, at the east end of the Braid Hills, with the start a short walk to the NW. The golf courses on the Braid Hills have fast running on the shorter grass of the fairways, carefully avoiding the greens and bunkers. There’s more complicated navigation amongst many small hills and gorse thickets, areas of rougher grass, and some patches of woodland. The longest courses crossed Braid Hills Road to reach the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill.
There was a chilly wind, with some showers, so the vegetation was very wet and paths were muddy.
There were 5 Scottish champions from ESOC:
Rona Lindsay – W21
Sarah Crawford – W35
Sally Lindsay – W65
Margaret Dalgleish – W70
Eleanor Pyrah – W75
