EAST VETS HAVE A CONVINCING WIN AT KILMACOLM


East and West Vets Teams

A strong West Vets team turned up at Kilmacolm determined to win the Elise Duncan Trophy for the first time in several years – but the East Vets team had other ideas, achieving an excellent 7-2 victory. However 4 of the 9 games went to the 18th, and Donna Jackson had an impressive 5 & 4 win.
  
We are indebted to Kilmacolm Golf Club for the use of their excellent course, which was enjoyed by all (despite some tricky pin positions !), and the ‘before and afters’ catering was first class.  


Lady Captain Sara Bishop very kindly acted as Starter, and Club Captain Jane McDonald very  thoughtfully donated a Club crystal glass which was presented to East Vet Anne Brownie (pictured left)  who got a hole-in-one at the par 3  12th hole !

Results : West Team named first

Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) lost to Jennifer Bryans (Harburn) 3 & 1
Donna Jackson (Cochrane Castle) beat Caroline Steedman (Murrayfield) 5 & 4
Liz Stewart (Greenburn) lost to Anne Hanson (Turnhouse) by 1 hole
Lesley Lloyd (Hayston) lost to Lesley Johnston (Gullane) by 1 hole
Lorraine Campbell (Cardross) halved with Sue Penman (Gullane)
Roz Purdom (Prestwick St Nicholas) lost to Sal Shepherd (Craigmillar Park) 2 & 1
Robina Gilbertson (Prestwick St Nicholas) halved with Susan Rennie (Turnhouse)
Janice Paterson (Drumpellier) lost to Dulcie Barnes (Gullane) 4 & 3
May Hughes (Lanark) lost to Anne Brownie (Mortonhall) 5 & 4
