Barassie Captain David Miller presents the unique Combined Operations Trophy to the Brian Dennison, Captain of the winning team.
Both David and Brian were magnanimous in their recognition of the matches, the players, the course and the hospitality accorded to everyone. The Club has an excellent culinary reputation and its catering and bar staff at Barassie were singled out for all their work.
The Captains recognised the continuing bond between an all four clubs and were grateful to the original efforts of the troops but in 1945.
When the trophy is contested next year at Prestwick Golf Club, whilst the competition will be as intense the winner always be the Royal and Ancient game that hooks us every weekend.
Will Western did it again? There are three other Clubs and three new teams who will have a definite say in the matter.
