The 9 clubs of the league competed on finals day this year at Newbattle Golf Club.
The entire day's golf was played in glorious sunny weather which is always a bonus. The condition of the course was outstanding and numerous competitors made a point in seeking us out to compliment the Greenkeeping staff on its excellence. I have, of course, passed on all these congratulations to Jim Christisen and his staff.
110 players took part in the days play. Three age groups competed for a number of trophies and voucher prizes. The overall scratch prize was won by Malcolm Graham from
