The Greenlees Team faced an additional challenge getting to their final match of the season at Cathkin Braes today due to a certain VIP visiting the City of Glasgow.
Despite roads being closed and one of our team staying just a 5 iron distance from Bellahouston Park the Team set off in good time to ensure punctuality!

The journey to and from the match was easy, it was the golf that proved more of a challenge.

Despite Ranfurly's best efforts in fine sunny weather with a stiff breeze the result was an 8 - 1 loss (two halved matches) against a very strong Cathkin team aiming to top the division. Cathkin now await the completion of the last matches to see if they have won the Greenlees Trophy.
Ranfurly Castle have done well to remain in Division 1 thanks to the commitment and good match play by the team over the season.
