T T Sanderson won 9 Border Championships and 15 Peebles Championships. His memory is celebrated by an annual trophy match with all the Border Clubs invited to send a team of 6 to play for the Trophy. This competition is different from the usual competition, it caters for all golfers. The teams are made up of two low, two middle and two high handicappers. Scoring is stableford and the sum of the 6 scores is added, to give a winner. Melrose, Hawick, Peebles, Kelso, Jedburgh, Innerleithen, The Hirsel, Galashiels. Torwoodlee, Langholm, Cardrona and Gala Bakers are all former winners.
This year 7 clubs answered the call and it is hoped that next year the entry can be doubled.
The Lauder team of SHANE PATON, JIMMY GILLIE, KENNY GILLAN, LEE MANDERSON, GRANT ROBSON and DOUGIE BAIN were 2nd on 191 pts.
