As you will know, the Gent’s Newton Shield team played their final against Erskine Golf Club on Friday night.
On a beautiful night, both teams took part in a fantastic match which was keenly contested in the great spirit of golf. Whilst our team put in a valiant effort they were unfortunately beaten on the night by a very strong Erskine team by a score of 6-2. The game was very tight for the first half and after 9 holes it was in the balance but a strong finish from Erskine saw them over the line to win the trophy.
Whilst finishing runners up, the Club can be proud of the lads outstanding achievement this year of reaching the final. They have been great ambassadors for our Club and played every game with enthusiasm and determination.
You can see pictures of the lads on our Facebook page and on our website.
