East Vets win the Elise Duncan Trophy at Douglas Park

Susan Penman and May Hughes 

As we welcomed Susan Penman and her team to Douglas Park, it was hoped we could finally get a win over the East on home soil, unfortunately it was not to be. The West Team lost narrowly 5 games to 4.

Although the main thing about this match was that we managed to get it played after all the uncertainty over restrictions, especially travel from different levels.

It was a perfect day for golf, with Douglas Park in excellent condition.
