The result of the Tournament rested with the top couples who were all square with two holes to play in the deciding match.

Extract from Public Schools Old Boys Golf Association Report on the 37th Grafton Morrish Final 1999.
George Heriots Win Again and in Style
George Heriots, the most successful Scottish School ever, beat their conquerors of last year, Solihull in a repeat Sunday afternoon Final by 3 -0.
In the top game, expected to be the vital one, Ron Bradly, Captain of Heriots, played a wonderful, low running pitch from 40 yards short of the 18th green and Colin Dempster made no mistake with a difficult right to left downhill putt. This put Heriots one game up and their other two pairs responded by winning easily. Heriots have now won the Grafton Morrish three times in the last six years and have been runners up twice. Rob Tickell of Solihull said "We all need putting lessons. They putted us off the course."
Sivewright Trophy: The Club won this Tournament for the first time. The team of G. M. P. Abbott, I. L. Crichton, K. Murphy and J. Langlands won after a three hole playoff in the final against Scottish Life at Prestonfield. It was most appropriate to win this Trophy in view of the very strong Heriot's golf connection with its late Honorary President, Bill Sivewright.

S. Smith won the Duddingston Championship.

Notes
Pride of place goes to the victorious Queen Elizabeth Trophy team at the Royal Burgess Golfing Society. This is a most prestigious tournament and winning it once is quite an achievement. The Club has now won it three times having previously been successful in 1980 and 1982. Special mention must be made of Ron "The Legend" Bradly who has been in all three winning teams and Brian Reid who was also in the 1982 team.
Ron Bradly is also to be congratulated on winning the Club Championship for an unprecedented eleventh time.
David Marshall was a member of the Dalmahoy team which won the Summer League, the Inter Club and the Inter Cities Cup.
An ex darts trophy was presented by G Boon to be competed for in the annual match v Watsonians. Not surprisingly, the trophy is to be known as the “Darts Trophy”.
The Annual Dinner at Goldenacre was back to its normal high standard and Saltire, the new caterers, did an excellent job and the reputation of our Dinner has been re established. Thanks to Steven Brian, Royal Burgess, and James Thomson of the Prestonfield House Hotel for their generous sponsorship of the raffle.
The Hickory Club Challenge evening was played over nine holes at Musselburgh Old Links was enjoyed by all. The winner was D. S. Livingstone (4) 35
It is perhaps worth pointing out that the Club had been in existence for fifty eight years before its first major success - the Dispatch Trophy in 1948. The latest Queen Elizabeth win brings the Club's number of victories in major team tournaments to a most impressive total of ten.
The Club currently has one hundred and eighty members and funds of £3,029.

Two successful social outings were held the Royal Burgess with sixteen members attending the first and twelve members attending the second. These social outings are most popular and are quickly becoming highlights in the calendar.


The Annual Dinner was a great success at Goldenacre where one hundred and four members and guests enjoyed a first class meal provided by McKenzie’s and a most humorous speech from John McKelvey. Reference was made by the Captain that D. R. Campbell had collected seven individual trophies this year and this feat was suitably acknowledged by those present.

The Public Schools Old Boys Association has produced a book “The First Fifty Years” to celebrate its Golden Jubilee and, in particular, to record the competitions for the Grafton Morrish Trophy, the Solihull Salver and the Committee Bowl. The book is crammed full of interesting facts and statistics together with photographs of all the successful Grafton Morrish teams. Heriot’s did not enter the tournament until 1984 and since then has by far the best record having won the Grafton Morrish five times and appearing in nine finals. Only Charterhouse, who have been playing in the tournament since 1965, have had more wins with eight, having won seven times before Heriot’s entered the fray! Heriot’s top the percentages having won 80% of all their matches. On the individual front, some 3,673 different players have participated over the years. Ron “the legend” Bradly heads the list of highest points scored with David Campbell in second place. Bert Nicholson and John Archibald also appear in the top ten which is an amazing record.


The Club membership has increased to 178. The funds stand at £4,391 plus £25,061 in the Legacy Fund.
