Challenge match versus Bruntsfield Short Hole at Bruntsfield - 23rd July 2009

Our return match with Bruntsfield Short Hole resulted in the same scoreline as the previous year, a 3-1 victory to BSH. However, as 3 of the Bruntsfield team are LRGS members, we felt we could at least claim an honourable draw, a view NOT shared by our rivals!  

Due to the very specialist nature of the course, we were again given a few holes advantage in each match.

The matches were, as always, played in the true sporting manner, the enjoyable evening rounded off with typical hospitality from our hosts. The results were .....

Martin Fletcher & Brian Graham defeated Jimmy Robertson & William Wright 
Robin Morris lost to Paul Middleton & David Rintoul.
(Robin's partner was unable to play at the very last minute, so he valiantly took on his opponents single-handedly) 
Douglas Foulis & Chester Kruk lost to Steven Doyle & Gordon Cochrane
Eugene Bradley & Jim Maguire lost to Ian Hislop & Graeme Macdonald
