The match took place in glorious sunshine at the Blairgowrie Golf Club. Temperature 20 degrees. It was great not having to contend with wind and rain. The Rosemount course was in magnificent condition and the clubhouse looked stunning in the sunshine. All the players felt very privileged to be playing such a wonderful course.The catering was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by Bev Brown and her Midlands team.

East Vets Team - Winners of the Elise Duncan Trophy
West Vets Team

Report from Anne Brownie (East Vets) ) Captain.

The annual scratch match between the East and West Divisions of the SVLGA (Scottish Veteran Ladies’  Golf  Association) took place today at Mortonhall Golf Club, Edinburgh.    
The result was a 6 to 3 win for the East whose team members  are seen pictured with the Elise Duncan Trophy
On a “blustery” (i.e. strong to gale-force winds) day, the sun at least shone at Mortonhall and some sparkling golf was on show despite the unseasonable weather. 
Players on both sides complimented the condition of the course; iron shots were played in close and putts (long and short) were holed on both sides. 
There were four halved matches, one win for the West and four wins for the East.   In fact, after the first six matches, it was evenly poised at three points apiece  but the East won the last three games to close out the 6-3 win. 

Report from Marion Stewart (West Vets Captain)

Captain Marion arrived late having taken the wrong turn off after exiting the motorway.
Her team however, arrived on time and enjoyed scones and coffee/tea before playing.the weather was sunny but very windy and the West players found the conditions very tricky and were glad the green keeper had not rolled the greens as he had intended.
Lesley Lloyd was our only winner but 5 other matches went to the 18th.
Gillian Kyle earning a great draw against Noreen Fenton after being 3 down at the 15th.
Congratulations to Captain Anne Brownie and her East team who won 6 /3 and we look forward to challenging them again at West Kilbride next year.
