Mortonhall Golf Club was the perfect setting for the Annual East v West Vets Match for the Elise Duncan Trophy. The fine, testing course along with the good weather was enjoyed by all, but the East Vets retained the Trophy, narrowly beating the West 5-4.

The match couldn’t have had a better start, with Donna Jackson achieving an eagle 2 at the first hole ! However despite losing overall, there was lots of good golf played, and all players should feel justifiably proud of their commitment and effort.
As usual the camaraderie was evident on the course and in the clubhouse during the meal, and we must thank Mortonhall G.C. and East Vets Captain Caroline Kinnaird for hosting such an enjoyable day.

The results were as follows:- (West Team players first named) 

Donna Jackson lost to Jennifer Bryans 2 & 1
Gillian Kyle halved with Anne Hanson
Lesley Lloyd beat Sue Penman 5 & 4
Nicky Henderson halved with Carol Brown
Roz Purdom beat Dawn Young 4 & 3
May Hughes lost to Anne Brownie by 1 hole
Robina Gilbertson beat Sophia Spiewak 9 & 7
Jennifer Mack lost to Linda Grieve by 1 hole
Anabel Kane lost to Hazel Saunders 4 & 3

Finally all in the team ( and I’m sure other West Vets ) are thinking of Liz Stewart,  and we hope to hear better news soon about her Mum.

LIZ STEWART WINS THE 2017 WEST VETS CHAMPIONSHIP

Liz Keohone and Championship winner Liz Stewart
For once we were treated to some wonderful weather, which showed Renfrew Golf Club at its best. The fairways were in very good condition, but all players found the greens very difficult due to dressings which had been sprayed beforehand.

The morning’s play saw 3 of the 4 matches tied after 9 holes, and in the 4th match Carole Hill (Hilton Park) was in control and eventually ran out the winner by 5 & 4 over Glynis Rintoul (Old Ranfurly) to reach the final of the Stewart Trophy. In the other semi-final, the players had to go down the 18th before Morag Key (Ralston) eventually prevailed over Helen Burnet (Hilton Park),  winning by 2 holes.

In the Championship, both semi-final  matches were keenly contested with some great golf, and it took a birdie by Liz Keohone (Loudoun Gowf) to see off Nicky Henderson (Haggs Castle) by 2 & 1 and reach the final. In the other semi-final, Liz Stewart (Greenburn) found Anabel Kane (Kilmacolm) a difficult opponent to beat, especially as both played the front 9 in 39. It took 2 long putts by Liz to secure victory on the 16th green.

In the Championship Final, Liz Stewart got off to a good start and was quickly 2 up. Several holes thereafter were halved until Liz Stewart pulled away to be 4 up. However as expected, Liz Keohone pegged 2 holes back but was unable to force the game down the 18th, so Liz Stewart became the Champion for the first time.

Carole Hill - Stewart Cup Winner and Morag Key
The Stewart Trophy Final proved another tough effort between new Vet Carole Hill and the ‘evergreen’ Morag Key. Considering that both ladies are not used to playing 2 rounds in a day, especially in those warm conditions, they played consistently good golf. However the ‘youngster’ Carole eventually prevailed on the 16th green, winning 3 & 2.

We would like to thank Renfrew Golf Club once again for hosting the 2 days play, and all members who were most welcoming. Thanks also to the small number of spectators who walked the fairways, and finally we are indebted (as usual !) to Carol Fell for her skills in keeping the website up to date, and for her photos. -- Click here for some Photos of the day -- - courtesy of June Lockhart and Carol Fell
