East of Scotland Ladies Championship

Jane Turner takes the East of Scotland Title.

18 year old Jane Turner from Mortonhall added the adult East of Scotland Championship to her Junior East of Scotland title which she won in July, when she won at The Glen Golf Club, North Berwick on Sunday.
The morning started off gray & overcast and somewhat chilly with a slight N/E breeze but by lunchtime the sun was shining and the Glen Golf Club could be seen at its best, complimented by the magnificent views of the Bass Rock and the coast of the Firth of Forth.
Jane tied with her Midlothian County team-mate, Claire Macdonald (Gullane Ladies), on 72 and won on the better inward half. Alison Davidson (Stirling) was third on 73.
