As previously indicated to you John Hunter (Kingston) reached the quarter finals of the CoC and played his match a few days ago. Unfortunately for John he lost the match narrowly. Having taken his opponent Ian Dickson (Mortonhall) to the 20th hole it was just a step too far. However, as they say there is always next year John, if you can regain the Kingston title!

The annual Kingston / Ladies / Juniors match was played on Friday evening. The rainy theme continued, although it wasn’t too bad this time…
Congratulations to Kingston for a fine performance – they were very clear winners (ladies, don’t worry! we will be looking at the format next year).
Special congratulations to Gordon Dickson for a hole in one at the 11th! It contributed well to his 45 Stableford points!
We all enjoyed a lovely meal and a few good laughs in the dining room afterwards. Many thanks to the catering and bar staff.
