Alongside the Autumn Meeting the inaugural Catriona Matthew Team Trophy was being contested.
Clubs nominated one or two teams of three players to take part, the best two scores being added together to give the score for their team.
23 teams from 14 Clubs took part, including a team from Muirfield and one from the home club, Winterfield.
ELLCGA are delighted to report that our junior team won the competition with a fantastic score of 80. The trophy will be presented by Catriona Matthew at North Berwick Golf Club at a date to be arranged.

It was a beautiful day in Dunbar with very little wind and Winterfield was in fantastic condition, scoring was generally good with the front nine proving a lot easier than the back nine. Our members were very positive about the course and all seemed to have really enjoyed their day.
Grace Crawford’s 65 may be a new ladies record but this will need to be confirmed, fantastic score Grace.
Congratulations go to the winner of the Autumn Meeting, one of our new members in her first ELLCGA competition, Val Bird (Royal Musselburgh) with a Stableford score of 43.
There were 15 2’s, special mention for Carole Ross who managed a 2 on the 15th, a hole most of us thought was a par 4.
Thanks go to the staff at Winterfield for their help.
