The Foulis Medal was the only event that we managed to complete at Leith
Links due to
atrocious weather this year. The Medal, presented to the Society by our President, Douglas Foulis,
in 2007, was handed over to new winners, Duke Street United Reformed
Church. As they had taken part every year, the father and son team of
Jim and David Maguire were fitting and worthy winners.
8 teams took part, this included 3 from Leith Rotary.
The weather had an impact on the scoring, with almost zero run on shots.
We started cutting the greens about a month in advance and we looked
forward to playing on well-manicured surfaces. But sadly, the weather
reduced them to bare mud in places with very little grass, but maybe
this was in keeping with the conditions faced by our forebears in 1744?
