Huge congratulations to Rachael Livingstone who reached the final of the Scottish Women's Amateur Championship which took place at Ladybank Golf Club in he last weekend of May. Unfortunately, Rachael lost in the final but played some fabulous golf throughout both the qualifying rounds and the matchplay stages against some tough competition. The magnitude of this achievement cannot be underestimated and Baberton are immensely proud of Rachael’s performance.
Huge congratulations to our Men's Interclub team who won this year's event. Owen Brady, Jake Edgcombe, Dougie Waugh and Mark Riddell overcame Swanston 2-1 in the final. Well done guys!

Having won the event in 2021, Baberton entered this year's event as defending champions. Two Baberton Teams battled through 36 holes over the very tricky Braids No 1 course. The wind made the course even harder, not to mention the gorse bushes! Some excellent golf was played and at the end of the day Baberton Team A came runners up to Turnhouse A. No trophy for Baberton this year but a great performance none the less.
Well done to both teams!
Baberton Team A: Nicky Graham & Jackie Bracewell, Laura Reekie & Adrienne Turner
Team B: Margaret Alexander & Ella Marshall, Olga Greenan & Julie Robb
