An Elmwood College professional golf student has recently set a new course record of 69 at Broomieknowe in Edinburgh.
HNC Professional Golf student, Hannah Scott from Edinburgh took part in the Broomieknowe Golf club Ladies Medal competition, beating the previous course record of 70, set by Claire MacDonald in 2007. Broomieknowe is Hannah’s home course and she is a member of the Midlothian County Ladies’ Golf Association.
2012 has been a successful year for Hannah. In April she qualified for the British Schools and Colleges National Finals at St Andrews, where she came second. Students from all over the UK competed at the Torrance Course.
During her time at College, she completed a three-month work placement at Braid Hills Driving Range in Edinburgh, where she shadowed a professional and assisted with coaching the juniors.
Hannah said, “Elmwood has improved me as a player and as a person. It is the biggest achievement of my career so far. I got hooked on golf from the age of 12 after watching my family play and I have never looked back. I hope to come back to Elmwood after the summer and study the HND.”
Anne Laing, Elmwood College sports lecturer commented, “Hannah has done exceptional in breaking this record and has developed well over the last academic year, both as a player and as a student. I can envisage Hannah taking on coaching as a career and I’m sure she will be successful in this.”
Hannah has just been selected to play for her County Ladies Golf Team as they attempt to win the East Inter County Matches in June.
