New Earlston Golf Club member Keith Hutchison (centre) walked away with both trophies from their visit to Kelso GC.

On a cool breezy day, Hutchison won the Donaldson Trophy, sponsored by Donaldson’s the Butchers of Earlston, with 37 stableford points.

He also lifted the Wallace Cup, the oldest trophy in Earlston’s cabinet, with a stunning nett 67.

George Cessford claimed the runner-up spot in the Wallace Cup, while Dougie Bain was in third place. Here is hoping the handicap committee are gentle with them.

The biggest hit of the day came from Ross Aitchison, who took the prize for longest drive with a blistering 311-yard shot that smacked into the middle of the fairway.

Earlston members head off to Peebles GC on Sunday for a strokeplay competition.
