Who said Golf was no matter of life or death Ö.it is FAR MORE IMPORTANT!†

I did!† Well, I borrowed the prase from Bill Shankly.


The Horners match on Friday was a tough challenge for our golfers against the weather and a sterling challenge by the Horners. Some capitulated ( not mentioning any names Chris) but the team came through with a magnificent 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 pts. win at the Europa course.

The trophy was presented to Frank Garvey at the gala dinner on Saturday night held at the Tamisa Hotel.

Text Box: Edna Milneís Golf Dinner presentation Speech

When John joined Probus it soon became clear to me that Tuesday and Thursday mornings were for golf but two became three then four and even five. What was the problem? I still had one day to go shopping.

I learnt early on if you canít beat them join them. Thatís my motto. So, I watched all the sports on tv with him.
 I really had no choice, he had control of the remote.  But I learnt to love it , especially the six nations.

Golf soon became an obsession.  But then John told me for him the greatest enjoyment was being with the chaps, ALL of YOU!

For me, the best part was the many great friends we made. All of you!

Because of this he wanted to give you this Trophy. So, I am honoured and proud to present The John Milne Memorial Trophy to Martin Butler.
