Challenge match versus Bruntsfield Short Hole at Leith Links - 4th July 2019

"For a memorable golfing experience using traditional hickory clubs, come to Leith Links and play on the very turf where golf's earliest rules were written"

Due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances, this was the first match in this series since 2016, everyone was delighted that we could recommence our always friendly rivalry.

The result was a 3-1 win for the Society, levelling up the 10-series match at 5 wins apiece. The legendary Pie and Beans was partaken in Seafield Bowling club afterwards and discussion about the return at Bruntsfield in a few weeks was undertaken. Suffice to say that the parties are still way apart on the handicap allowance to be given to us, but we are confident BSH will see the logic in our submission!



The match results were -

Ian Hislop and Chester Kruk defeated Alastair Stewart and Ian Proudfoot
Dave Clark and Jim Scanlon defeated David Barron and Cameron Gardner
Alastair Chalmers and John Dixon defeated Fraser Gordon and Phil Mullery
Pat Denzler and Robin Miller lost to Jimmy Robertson and Denis Dixon
