The last Qtr final complete this evening with Turnhouse coming out the winners 5.5 - 3.5  against Longniddry in what again another hotly contested match.

The tee times have been booked but both host clubs have a competition on beforehand so Tee is booked from those times.  Captains can decide on when to tee off allowing for a few holes grace for groups in front.  Food and drinks organised for after the matches, again Captains can decide whether to eat together or as groups come in. 

Buggies for Captains/Referee  have been arranged. 

 

Host clubs should provide a courtesy practice so Captains should contact the clubs direct. If there are issues then contact Gordon McSorley. 

With two more Qtr Final matches played on Thursday evening the Semi finals are now shaping up. 

Both matches were closely contested and went to the last 2/3 final matches all of which could have swung either way.

Mortonhall managed to squeeze out a great away victory at Glencorse, who had their first home defeat for 2 seasons. Final result was  Glencorse  (4) and Mortonhall (5).  The other Match was Broomieknowe at home to Craigielaw.  Final matches were played by 'window light' from the houses adjasent to the course.  The match was played in great spirit with Broomieknowe winning 5.5 to Craigielaw 3.5.  The 2nd last group having halved the 18th had started on the extra hole possible decider as the last group headed down 18. Unfortunately for Craigielaw this was not required as Broomieknowe closed the final match out with a  birdie at 18. (Great lag putt in the dark Kenny :) )  

 

Semi finals lining up as follows.

 Just Turnhouse and Longniddry match on the 13th August to finalise the Semi Finals lineup. 

 

MVP update: 

Allan Reoch has again reached the top of the table on 34 points, however with Craigielaw out of the Competition, this leaves an opportunity for the chasing players. 

Gus Santana on 31.25 points could reach a maximum of 35.25 if he wins points in the Semi Final and Final.

Jamie McIntosh could also reach a maximum of 34 points with two wins and Jack McVey could reach a maximim of 37 if he wins points at home against Longniddry and Turnhouse go through to Semi Finals and Finals and he wins maximum points there as well.  Complicated and what Ifs but all possible. 

 

Godd luck to all. 

 

 

 

 

 

Well done to Duddingston on a 6 - 3 home win in the first of the Qtr finals on Mondat night.  Commiserations to the losing Qtr finalists Royal Burgess. 

 

Next two Qtr finals are on Thursday evening.  

 

The 2019 AGM has been booked for Monday 7th October at Royal Burgess 7 - 9pm.  Email and responses for Agenda etc will circulated shortly.
