BGC – Captain’s Message – 18th September 2023

Good morning,

A busy weekend of Finals!

Our 8 man Jessiman Team played Clober at Milngavie GC in the Final of the Competition which Bearsden have never won in the 56 year history of the event. In a very close Match, Bearsden were just edged out by 2 holes overall across the 4 pairs matches. Congratulations to Bryan Brown and his Team for reaching the Final this year and coming so agonisingly close to picking up the Trophy. Well done to all and hopefully we can go one better next year!
