It was great fun, but....our third and final inter divisional match versus the West was at Auchterarder which gave us beautiful views, beautiful greens but sadly not a beautiful result!
The West managed to defeat us 7-3 albeit with friendly rivalry!  We witnessed Midland team members wrestling with too many bunkers but many a laugh could be heard.  Thanks to all the players - a terrific group with a great sense of humour.
We shall be back next year with renewed strength and energy.

MIDLAND V EAST 18/05/2017

Anne Brownie  receives the Liz Miskimmin Friendship Quaich from  Lizee McGraw
Midland Vets took on the East Vets on a beautifully manicured Stirling Golf Course with excellent  greens and the grace of the famous castle in the background.  Very competitive golf was played in glorious windless weather and the results of each match were eagerly awaited at the 18th.  Finally the East star shone brightly and  Midland lost the Liz Miskimmin Friendship Quaich to an extremely happy  East team  by 4/3.  
Stirling Golf Club rounded off the day with a tasty meal served by lovely young and attentive staff.  Well played all and special thanks to VC Lorna who travelled over from Fife in support.

MIDLAND V NORTH 11/05/2017

Blairgowrie provided ideal weather for our first match of the season which was hotly contested by both North and Midlands with matches swinging both ways until finally a DRAW was declared!  As holders of the  Inter-Divisional Trophy, Midland retain it.
The matches were played  on a testing Lansdowne course in a friendly spirit with the ball rolling great distances on fast fairways, combined with true greens.  An excellent meal rounded off the day.  
Thank you to the team and also to our own Emma Wilson, President of the SVLGA, who came to cheer on the players.
