For the veteran seniors members of Ross Golf Club the annual Over 75s Peter Carton-Kelly Cup, first introduced in 2001, provides the opportunity for those eligible to show that age has no barrier in golf and major prizes can still be won and lost.

The result of the 2019 event being, as customary, a 16 holes stableford competition played on the Club’s yellow course.

This was won by a relative new Ross club member in Alf Simpson and his 37 points score made him a clear winner to take the traditional Famous Grouse  Whisky top prize.

Tim Rigden, Graham Chick and Graeme Forrester did their best to catch Alf, ultimately all falling short with 34 points each although Tim was able to take home second prize on count-back.

The octogenarians taking part also have a prize at stake to suit their age category and Cec Wheatstone with 32 points proved to be the most adept just edging out Club President Geoff Baker with 31 points. Cecil was delighted to receive his bottle prize and to share with those present at the lunch afterwards some endearing memories of event’s founder Peter Carton-Kelly, who was his doctor, to add meaningfully to the occasion.
