Grant Morrison won the competition trophy, kindly donated by Tommy Mulvee, with 39 stableford points; 2, Jim Hood 38; 3, Gary McDonagh 35. On their return, the group brought an enjoyable day out to a close at the Fox and Hounds in Denholm.

Playing conditions were very windy but the local ladies held their nerve and won by a single point. Congratulations to all three of them.
