Golf: Alliance event in the balance

Have your say

A STRONG field is scheduled to do battle at Gullane tomorrow in the Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance Championships.

Alliance secretary Alan Greenshields is keeping an eye on the weather and is set to review the situation later today.

If he decides to press on as scheduled, Andrew Oldcorn (Kings Acre) and Willie Laing (Prestonfield) will be defending the scratch and handicap titles respectively.

Oldcorn’s rivals for the Uni Royal Trophy are set to include former Scottish Challenge winner Jamie McLeary and EuroPro Tour player Mark Kerr.

The event consists of 36 holes – one round on No. 2 and the other on No. 3.
