Wishaw golf

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS -

The 21st edi­tion of the Wishaw v Wishaw golf event saw the Scots team beaten by their English coun­ter­parts. The com­pe­ti­tion, which started in 1997 to mark the cen­te­nary of the Scot­tish Wishaw Golf Club, sees Wishaw take on War­wick­shire Wishaw ev­ery year. The Scots took a 12-strong team across the bor­der hop­ing to re­tain the tro­phy they won last year on home turf. Wishaw GC mem­ber Craig Dalziel said:“The week­end was fan­tas­tic and the hos­pi­tal­ity im­mense. Weather wise on both days it was roast­ing hot and we stayed dry, just. “On the Sun­day just as we com­pleted the match thun­der and light­en­ing struck and stayed on for about six hours. “The re­sult wasn’t so good for Wishaw Scot­land as we were beaten 7.5 to 4.5 over the 12 matches. How­ever, we did man­age to win at the Skit­tles which re­placed the dance, on the Satur­day night. “Wishaw Eng­land have al­ready booked a ho­tel here for next year’s event.”
