SVLGA Blairgowrie Meeting

The Patrick Rosebowl for the best overall nett score was won by Moira Begbie of Ladybank with an excellent score of 72. Midland Vets came second to North Vets in the Lyon Trophy (awarded to the Divisional Team recording the best 3 nett scores). No other Vets featured in Monday's prize list, but they are full of good intentions to feature in the prize list of Tuesday's Greensomes competition! The CSS for Monday's strokeplay was 76.
