Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

The Cathkin Braes team have re­cently wrapped up a great sea­son after win­ning the In­ter Cities Cup.

In the match, played on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 7, at Mus­sel­burgh Golf Club, they de­feated the Ed­in­burgh Golf League cham­pi­ons Turn­house by 6-3.

In dif­fi­cult and blus­tery con­di­tions, the match was an­other In­ter Cities clas­sic, with both teams look­ing like win­ners at dif­fer­ent stages of the match.

It was Cathkin, how­ever, who got over the fin­ish line, de­spite some nail bit­ing putting on the slop­ing 18th green!

The team have re­cently com­pleted a his­toric three in a row in the Brand Put­ter League, were win­ners of the Bound­ary Bell for the sec­ond time, and are now win­ners of the In­ter Cities Cup for the sec­ond time.

A club spokesper­son said: “Credit to all at Cathkin in­volved with the team, man­ager Gor­don Ren­nie and his sup­port team in­clud­ing cap­tain Billy Mathie and stand in team man­ager John Sang­ster, plus many oth­ers.

“We would also like to thank Turn­house GC for their great sports­man­ship, tour­na­ment or­gan­iser Ian McDon­ald, and Mus­sel­burgh Golf Club for pre­sent­ing a golf course in great con­di­tion and host­ing the event.”
