The annual match v Gullane GC  for the Percy Vere Trophy took place today on a beautiful sunny winter Sunday. There was some great golf and all the matches were played in good spirit. The score lines in some of the matches did not reflect how closely the holes were contested. We  all enjoyed a meal in the clubhouse afterwards as guests of Gullane.

I regret to report that the trophy was returned to the safekeeping of Gullane GC after their 3.5 – 2.5 win.

12.30  – Keith Anderson (13) and David Hardwick (6) lost to Sue Penman (6) and Pam Hall (8) 1up

12.36  –  Malcolm Robert (5) and Ian Johnston (12) beat Mhairi Tufail (6) and Sharon Lynch (8)  4&3

12.42 –  Stuart Barnes (6) and Davy Saunders (11) beat Mary Lou Watkins (5) and Hazel Saunders (9) 2&1

13.00 –  Alan J Fraser (7) and Jeff Aitken (7) lost to Jill McNicoll (5) and Dianne Brown (8)  2&1

 The final winter squad event was our annual friendly match v Borders County. The match was reduced to three foursomes matches played off handicap since Mother’s Day was a popular competing event!.  The match was played at Torwoodlee in glorious spring sunshine and as Kay and Lauren demonstrate cut offs and polo shirts were to the fore.

Borders welcomed us with soup and sandwiches before the match and Tea and a wonderful spread of cakes and meringues after the match. Both the match and the cakes were enjoyed by all.  Sadly we lost the match 2-1.
