Scottish Night Championships 2022

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

Other ESOC members in the top half of the results for their age class were:
    M50 (11 competitors) – Alistair Hindle 4th
    M60 (10) – Richard Oxlade 3rd
    M65 (10) – Crawford Lindsay 5th
    M70 (4) – Les Dalgleish 2nd
    W55 (11) – Alison Cunningham 5th, Helena Nolan 6th
