The HGS golf team and FPs enjoyed taking part in the annual McMillan Quaich competition at Pollok Golf Club.
The FP team performed very well this year and the matches were played in a friendly but competitive spirit.
During the first match, Lewis Irvine (C.2017) and Jim Bulloch (C.1961) played current S6 pupils David and Robbie. The game was a close one all the way with the School winning on the 18th.
The second match took between Carol Smith (C.1965) and Evi Park (C.1958) who played current pupils Emily and Sophie (S5). The game saw the FPs go 2 up after 3 but the pupils settled into steadier play and squared the match at the 8th. A birdie from Emily at the 9th saw them take the lead for the first time and the girls went on to win 5 and 4.
The final match was between Ian Crawford (C.1975) and Gillian Kyle (C.1983) against S5 pupils, Blair and Alastair. Despite Blair winning the first hole with a net birdie, the FPs played well and were 4 up after the 9th. Alastair had a great net 4 at the long 10th to reduce the score to 3 down.
The next few holes were halved but then the boys came on to form and won the next 4 holes with good pars to take the lead at the 17th. Ian had a fighting 4 at the last but Alastair matched him, resulting in the current Hutchie pupils winning.
The school won 3-0 and the organisers thanked pupils and FPs who came along to support the event and to Pollok Golf Club for their warm welcome as always.
