Scots score hat trick with golf trophy prize


SCOTTISH GOLF teams have displayed their superiority once more by scooping the Thomas Telford Trophy for the third successive year, as predicted in NCE (23/30 August).

East of Scotland branch won for the second year running at the Glasgow & West of Scotland hosted event held in Prestwick.

The gauntlet has been thrown down to the remaining 14 non Scottish associations to try and mount a respectable challenge for next year's trophy - to be held on the Rosemount course at the luxurious Blairgowrie club in Perthshire.

Inspired by the forthcoming Ryder Cup, civil engineering golfers are expected to take to the fairways in preparation for next year. It is hoped national interest can be brought to the annual event and ensure that the very best golfers from each association take part - not just the willing and able.

In a bid to give other associations a chance the system of the winner hosting the tournament two years later is to be abandoned in favour of a rotation arrangement between all associations.

Principal sponsor for the competition was Barr Holdings with support from Amey Highways, BEAR Scotland, George Leslie Ltd and the Civil Engineers Club. In addition, individual holes were supported by Babtie Group, Bullens, Charles Scott & Partners, Halcrow, Farrans, Glasgow & West of Scotland Association, Mackenzie Construction and Scott Wilson.
