The team lost 5 & 4: the experienced first couple being five down and the young second couple being all square! The Captain paid all expenses amounting to 14/- plus entertainment of the schoolboys and their caddies.
An amusing anecdote is that Gordon McCall and Ronnie Couche were badly teased at being shown up by two schoolboys who, to make things even worse, were still wearing short trousers!

The Lord Provost Sir Andrew Murray, the Honorary President of the Club and a former pupil of the School, accepted the Trophy on behalf of the Club.

The first couple W. A. W. Sivewright and W. F. Biggar played exceptionally steady golf and won all their games. The younger and less experienced second couple of J. D. H. McVey and R. R. Farmer played soundly and showed the real fighting spirit necessary to win the tournament.

Wallace, President of the Scottish Golf Union, Mr. H. K. Anthorn, President of the Lothians Golf Association, James Miller, City Treasurer, Mr. L. S. Miller, President of the Heriot Club, Mr. Wm.

Dispatch Trophy: the team of G. A. Scott and R. D. Yule and J. G. Ewart and R. O. Aitken was originally selected and would have been one of the youngest Heriot's teams ever but, due to unforeseen circumstances, the team which "took the tee" was W. F. Biggar and W. A. W.

As well as being Captain of the Golf Club in 1933/1934, he was Secretary of the Rugby Club for twenty years and he was the regular umpire for the FP Cricket eleven. Mr. Clark, who could remember when rugby was introduced to the School, not without opposition, in favour of association football, had a leading part in the negotiations which led to the acquisition of New Goldenacre.

Although it is believed that the Club has entered teams in the Queen Elizabeth Trophy at Barnton since its inception in 1953, no previous reports have been recorded. This may suggest a lack of success.

"The playing strength of the Heriot's FP Golf Club has never been better than during the past three years.

Automatic selections would be former University champion Jackie Mather (Duddingston), Ronnie Yule (Merchants), Ian Watt (Royal Burgess), former Lothians Champion Campbell Brownlee (Craigmillar Park), Bobby Robertson who also plays on the Blackford Hill circuit, Kingsknowe's Graham Ewart, Dalmahoy's Ian Lumsdaine, Ratho's Bobby Leslie and the Prestonfield brothers Richard and Ronnie Aitken."

The Annual Dinner was held in the Wee Windaes at 25/- per ticket and, whilst it showed a loss of £7.14/8d with only twenty six tickets paid for, it is hoped that more members and their guests will attend in future.

1963’s Annual Dinner was held in the Wee Windaes. Club Champion George Scott receiving his trophy from T. Muir Jinkins, President Lothians Golf Association, watched by the Headmaster, W. Mc.L Dewar, J. Strudwick, Tantallon Golf Club Captain, A. C. Nesbit, Heriot's Golf Club Captain, former Lothians Champion S. Smith, Boroughmuir FP, L. M. Allan, Carricknowe and J. Lumsden, Braids United.

The Club had a most successful film evening and golf clinic in the School which was well supported by Club members and by the School golf team who were invited guests. The clinic was held by Gordon Durward, the Longniddry professional, who gave the youngsters encouragement and valuable advice.
It is encouraging to note that sixteen new members joined during the year. Sixty eight members paid their subscriptions in 1963 compared with thirty five in 1962. It was agreed at the AGM that Committee members would each serve for two years, three members being elected, en bloc, each year.

Notes
The Annual Dinner was held in the Carlton Hotel. The principal guest was John Panton of Glenbervie who provided a most entertaining film show. Unfortunately, the Dinner again ran at a loss - this time of £16.00 and, as a result, the Club was in the red at the end of the season. The members discussed this fully at the AGM and the subscription for season 1965 was increased to 12/6d and remained at 2/6 for new members from the School for the first two years. The Club also decided to withdraw from membership of the Lothians Golf Association in an attempt to save money. G. Blamire offered to print any tickets, menus and fixture cards that the Club required, to save further expense.
Concern was shown at the failure of members to play hole and hole and foursomes ties and it was agreed that, in future, a subcommittee would be formed to deal with the selection of teams for the matches and to organise the hole and hole and foursomes competitions.

A Silloth competition was played in the afternoon followed by High Tea in the Paul Jones Inn.

Muirfield: Seventyseven members and guests attended this outing only ten days after the completion of an historic Open Championship.

Only two balls were lost in the four days of the Open - it was estimated that the Club's members and guests lost about three hundred balls in this one round. J. G. Ewart played splendidly for his seventysix which included two lost balls. Linton Medal (handicap): J. G. Ewart (3) 73: scratch 76.

Notes
It was stated previously that the Club appeared to stage a revival in 1925. Similarly 1966 reversed the trend of falling attendances and lack of participation in competitions. The average attendance at outings in 1966 was forty three which must be an all time high and reflects on the thought and originality of the selection of venues for outings. 
The Club Dinner was held in the Iona Hotel with some sixty members and guests. The guest speaker was Norman Mair.
Skittles evenings which were held in the Fox Covert and Hillburn Roadhouses were well attended and were most enjoyable.

I trust that I may be excused for including a personal note. Frank Scott, a mediocre golfer at Heriot's FP and Baberton Golf Clubs, returned a scratch 67 to win the scratch and handicap with a net 61, playing off a six handicap, in the Baberton September Medal. He struggled to the turn in 38 with the help of four one putts. He then played the second nine in 29 strokes aided by a hole in one at the 153 yard 17th hole with a nine iron. He took fourteen putts for the first nine and only nine putts for the last nine holes which consisted of one solitary par, two bogey fives, five birdies and an eagle! An interesting footnote is that several years later, the Ryder Cup golfer Brian Barnes, playing in a Caledonian Lions Tournament at Baberton, needed to hole a birdie putt on the last green to come back in 29 strokes. To Frank's delight, big Brian duly three putted for a 31 and he had to be content with winning the tournament and setting a new course record of 62!
M. W. Taylor played for the Bahamas in the Eisenhower Trophy at Buenos Aires, Argentina.
As highlighted above, Bert Nicholson won the Scottish Open Amateur Stroke Play title over Dalmahoy and Ratho Park with a fine score of 290 for 72 holes. He is to be congratulated on being the first FP and Club member to win a Scottish Men’s title. He won the trophy from a top class field containing many Internationalists and Walker Cup players. It is interesting to note that the previous five winners were Bernard Gallagher, Ronnie Shade, Scott McDonald, Dale Hayes (South Africa) and Ian Hutcheon. 
Bert also won eight open tournaments in 1972 and he was extremely unlucky not to win a Scottish Cap.

Tournaments
The Queen Elizabeth Trophy team of G. McLeod, R. W. Bradly, G. F. Aggett, T. Robertson, H. M. Gilmour and L. G. A. Morton must be congratulated in defeating Watsonians in the Final at the Royal Burgess.
1st round: v Hutchison's G. S. F. P.: won 2-1.
2nd round: v Stewarts Melville: won 3-0.
3rd round: v Old Gramarians: won 2-1.
4th round: v Gordonians: won two and a half to a half.
Semi-Final: v Hillhead H. S. F. P.: won 2-1.
Final: v Watsonians: won 2-1. 
The Final was all the more pleasing as Heriot's were very much the underdogs as Watsonians had won the Trophy six times since it began in 1953 and had been the losing Finalists in the past two years.
The result of the Tournament rested with the top couples who were all square with two holes to play in the deciding match. The Heriot's pair of Ron Bradly and Gordon McLeod won the 17th hole and, at the 252 yard par four 18th hole, Ron Bradly closed the door on Watsonians by driving the green to ensure a Heriot's victory for the first time. Heriot's were the only semi-finalists to play six rounds over the long weekend, with the other teams receiving byes into the second round
In addition to the fine victory in the Queen Elizabeth Trophy, teams were entered for the Dispatch Trophy. where we were defeated by Ethicon in the third round, and in the Sivewright Trophy, where our new "bogey" team, Ethicon, defeated our team in the second round. R. W. Bradly and G. McLeod finished a very creditable third in the Kingston Trophy at Liberton, with a total of 143, but our team in the Lothians Team Tournament failed to qualify for the final stages of the competition.

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.

Championships
S. McCulloch won the Kingsknowe Championship for the third year in succession.
S. Smith won the Duddingston Championship.

Notes
At the AGM, the death was announced of Donnie McMath, Secretary of the Club from 1973 to 1975 and from 1988 to 1991. He will be fondly remembered for his expert organisation, especially during the Centenary season in 1990.
