This year’s Minto Senior Ladies’ Open attracted one of the best entries, with 35 teams of three playing the course, which was in great condition, thanks to the hard work of head greenkeeper Paul Cranston and his team.

Entries were drawn from clubs as far afield as Carlisle, Elie and Buchanan Castle, with a number from East Lothian, as well as many of the Borders clubs.

The success of the day is a tribute to the hard work and meticulous preparation by the ladies’ competitions secretary, Linda Geatons, assisted by the ladies who helped with checking scorecards. Tam Glendinning ensured that the day ran like clockwork.
