East Lothian Winter League MOCGC Team

A great season for the winter league team finally came to an end on Sunday 17th March 2024 with a loss in a play off match versus Tantallon Golf Club. Having finished just short of automatic promotion by coming 2nd in Division 2 they had to play the club in the relegation place in the 1st Division. Remarkable that our small club with only a hundred or so members can compete in a scratch competition requiring 10 golfers (5 foursomes pairings). It became apparent that the task was going to be difficult when the total of the 10 Tantallon golfer’s handicaps were revealed to be plus 22.

Every member that played in the season should be congratulated for their performances throughout the winter, including the Captain Scott McFarlane. Difficult decisions regarding team selection had to be made as we had a large group of members wishing to be picked in the team. The future of the club and the winter league team is looking very good. Once again congratulations are the order of the day for the whole squad and the team are already looking forward to next year.
