Earlston golfers in prelude to new season
On a beautiful, sunny winter’s day – but with a stiff breeze which made the course challenging – 24 Earlston Golf Club members travelled to Magdalene Fields at Berwick, to play the Captain versus Vice-Captain Matchplay Competition.
The format was Four Ball Better Ball and, after a closely-fought battle, the Captain’s team emerged the winners by 3½ to 2½.
Nearest the pin was David Gordon.
Prizes from the 2018 ‘Colin Bain Knockout’ were also presented.
The winner was Barry Nelson and the runner-up was Ivor Aitchison.
Thanks have been extended to Dougie Bain for sponsoring the knockout competition.
