The Earlston golfers' Macaduf Tour this year was played over four rounds at Taymouth Castle, Newburgh and Peterhead.  The competition for the McKays Hotel Tankard was won by the narrowest of margins by Brian Hunter from Brian Thorburn and Frank Laidlaw, the result being decided by the count-back principle.  Frank responded by winning the Shirt Competition later in the day.
Using a format similar to the Ryder Cup, the competition for the Rhymer Cup was played over three rounds, with a Fourball at Newburgh being followed by Foursomes and Singles rounds at Peterhead.  The competition went right down to the wire, only being decided in the last holes of the Singles.  Full results are shown below:
