Scottish Open and Seniors Pro Am
We have been lucky enough to be able to enter a team into each of these events in the past and we hope to offer something similar in 2018. This is likely to be the winners of the Scratch and Handicap divisions and possibly one other wild card place which will be played for at our final event at the Scottish Open host club, Gullane, on the 27th April 2018.
East Lothian v Edinburgh Secondary Schools Ryder Cup
Following our Order of Merit events the top 8 players in the scratch and top 8 players in the handicap order of merits qualify to represent East Lothian in this event. Edinburgh unfortunately couldn’t field a team in 2017 due to staffing but we are hopeful they will in 2018.

A number of Senior Pupils gained their qualification this season and it would be good to have more on board as role models for the younger players.
