We were treated to some great disc golf today by Craigentinny Primary School. They have a some very athletic students who took their skills to our Red Course with some style by matching a few of the best scores to date by Primary students. The winner Andrew topped 19 of his fellow classmates and set a new Primary School course record of 30 strokes!! +3 for the day. An amazing score when you consider any score under a 50 for a first timer to be legitimate score. All in all there were 9 scores of 40 strokes or better, Craigentinny has raised the bar for Primary Schools across Scotland.
A day of disc golf at Foxlake Friday during Dunbar Civic Week was packed full of events for everyone and will not soon be forgotten. We hosted three disc golf events over the course of the day starting with our first event that was not only exciting the first of its kind in Scotland but also is in contention for the longest name in sports history, The Dunbar Civic Week East Lothian Schools Community Sports Hub Games Disc Golf Invitation (over one word per player). We finished The Invitational in time to tee off our Dunbar Doubles event which evolved into the Parent/child doubles as we had entered 3 Father-daughter and two Father-son teams. No sooner did we settle a necessary playoff then our attention turned to our final event of the day The Foxlake Furious Five which is a timed highly disciplined event featuring all operating businesses at Foxlake Adventures. Sunny Dunny did not fail at Foxlake Friday and all present were enjoying a very pleasant day by the Lake.
The DCWELSCSHGDG Invitational
Dunbar Civic Week Doubles
We set out on the course for our second event of the day Dunbar Doubles. We had 4 teams from East Lothian and one team representing Dalkeith (Team ringer!). Like it was by design each team consisted of a Father-child. On the first 4 holes we each took turns with a birdie on the 9 hole, par 27, Red Course. Team Doc after storming out of the gate with 2 birdies on first three holes could not find the basket and faded in mid-course to team ScanFam. But in the end it was Team C that prevailed by taking the trophy ending the round with 2 birdies carding a -3 under 24 then polishing off team ScanFam by drilling the birdie on the first playoff hole.
On a side note both players from Team Chzburger played very well while enjoying their first ever round of disc golf.
