Borders Trophy - message from our Past Captain Denise RIchards

 Good Morning Ladies

My last wee message to all our Border Lady golfers. I would just like to thank everyone for their support over the 2022 season and wish you all well for 2023 under the new leadership of Kirsty and her committee.

The AGM was well supported on Monday evening and under the section of AOB I brought to the attention of the ladies, a competition which was organized and run by each club alphabetically over the years but was NOT a BLCGA competition.

The Jedburgh ladies brought me a "Black box" at the end of our season which they had come across in their club and thought it would be of interest to us. It contained the minutes / constitution of the competition which was played for from 1949-2009. Kirsty and I have been trying to locate the two trophies, we have managed to find the Lady Henderson Trophy, silver division (the original county champion) but we have not found the Pettigrew Cup for the bronze.

Please could I ask everyone to hunt in their club's cupboards/ storage areas to help us locate the cup, it is a silver quaich 20cm diameter engraved "Pettigrew Cup Border Ladies Golf Tournament  - bronze division'  the trophy has two plinths, one wooden and one black.

Peebles /Hirsel/Melrose and Torwoodlee have been checked.

We would really like to start the competition again as it seems a shame to have these historical trophies sitting in cupboards.
Please contact us on our email to say if you have searched your clubs with or without success.

Many Thanks 
Denise Richards (Past Captain)
