Golf teams prepare for battle of the high tees


PRESTWICK GOLF Club will bear witness to some tigerish competition during the annual Thomas Telford Trophy on 3 September.

Each regional association will field a four man team to do battle at the home of the inaugural Open Championship, which took place in 1860.

Scottish regional associations have dominated the event in recent years, with the East of Scotland branch claiming the prize last year. Home advantage should ensure that the rest of the challengers face an uphill task to wrest the trophy from the Scots' grasp.

A full day's golf with individual and team prizes up for grabs should ensure a keenly fought contest.

Many teams include the winners of qualifying competitions, generating a high quality field.

Previous trophies have been played for at the famous Royal Birkdale, Wentworth and Royal Troon courses.

Barr Holdings is supporting the event with assistance from Amey Highways, Bear Scotland, George Leslie and the Civil Engineers Club.
