The match was preceded by the usual excellent lunch provided by Panmure Golf Club. All four matches set off under a cloudy sky with occasional blasts of warm sunshine. The wind was brisk, at times a two clubber and not from the prevailing direction. The course, which had recently hosted final qualifying for the Open was presented in magnificent condition. Recent rain had softened the fairways a little and had strengthened the rough, but this was still a great links golf experience. Early gloom mongers had forecast showers later in the day and at 5.10 the heavens opened and all four matches were finish in heavy rain. This did nothing to diminish everyone’s enjoyment of the day. The individual match results were varied, but the losing pair went down 6&5! The others were much closer.
