The MCLGA Biennial Tri-Am was held at Prestonfield Golf Club on Monday 19th August. A Solheim Cup theme was presented during the day with the Clubhouse tarted out in European and USA flags and banners. 50 teams arrived throughout the day with their themed dress code ready to play. Weather started off well but became a bit mixed as the day progressed. The format was a Stableford with one players score for the first 6 holes, 2 scores counting for holes 6 to 12 and 3 scores counting for holes 13 to 18. Lots of special hole prizes were on offer too. The Scottish Universities Golfing Society presented a glass decanter in their Centenary Year 2009 to MCLGA and this is the main team prize for first place in this event.

Thanks to Prestonfield GC for courtesy of the course to help MCLGA raise funds. A brilliant effort for running the event which was led by Maxine Nicholson, Prestonfield Lady Captain and MCLGA rep for their Club. Help from all the volunteers was greatly appreciated leading up to the event and on the day. The Course was in great condition with the speedy greens catching some players out.
