The 2019 Inter Cities Cup was held at Pollok Golf Club on Sunday 13th October
With both team having already appeared in previous finals, a good match was in prospect. The final is played as 9 individual singles matches.
Mortonhall got off to a good start with Greg Nicholson winning the top game 5&4 against John Mathers. The second game also went Mortonhall's way with Alex Main securing a 2&1 victory.
Haggs Castle fought back and won the next 3 games courtesy of David Gravil, Mark McMillan, and Ross McLeod, giving them a 3-2 lead after 5 games played. However Mortonhall proceeded to win the next 4 games with Bill Buchan winning 3&2 and Craig Terry defeating Adam Mackay 6&5.
Graham Clarke then secured the Cup on the 15th winning his game and shortly after Andrew Hogg holed a great 30 foot putt for birdie on the16th to win his game and get the celebrations well and truly underway. The final score was Mortonhall 6 v Haggs Castle 3.
Commiserations to Haggs Castle who are still looking for that elusive win, but congratulations to Mortonhall on a great performance winning the Inter Cities for the second time in 3 years.
Many thanks to Pollok Golf Club for their hospitality and for hosting the event, and to all those who helped to make this another great Inter Cities final.
