The West Vets played their annual foursomes match to-day against the East over Troon Portland. This match has been taking place for over 30 years. Noting the lack of something to play for, the ASP Trophy (Amicitia Semper Palma - Friendship Always the Prize) was kindly donated , a few years ago, by Asp Robertson from the East.
Between 9 and 10am this morning the weather was anything but good. However by the time we all met for coffee at 10, the views over Royal Troon to Arran were improving by the minute, and by tee off time at 11, the sun was beginning to shine and we enjoyed a lovely windless day! The matches were closely contested and the result was honours even - 2.5 : 2.5. The West having won last year at Gullane retain the Trophy for the coming year.
Our thanks go to Royal Troon for the courtesy of the course and to the staff at The Ladies Club for looking after us so well. A lovely day was had by all and we look forward to next year's match in the East.
