Wednesday September 8, The Bannatyne Cup. A total of 16 played in The Bannatyne, one of the last medal play events of the season and always played on a Wednesday.

Results: 1 Sandy Pringle 13, 56, 2 Jamie Macpherson 4, 59 and lowest gross, 3 Mark West 12, 62, 4 Duncan Heenan 12, 64. Magic twos Duncan and Jamie @17th.
Sunday September 12, Aitken Rosebowl. Donated to the club in 1909, The Aitken is one of the club’s oldest trophies and one of the few played as a foursomes, a demanding format which requires both playing partners to contribute to the team score.

Results: 1 Neil Lucas and John Pennycott 14, 63, 2 Gavin Mainds and David Brookens 9,65 acb, 3 Duncan Heenan and Bruce Cameron 21, 65.
