Curtis Cup captain Elaine donates trophy to 
winner of Deeside Junior Open
The Deeside Junior Open - to be played at the Bieldside course on Monday (August 1) - has never had a trophy to present to the winner.But it has now!
Great Britain and Ireland's winning Curtis Cup team captain Elaine Farquharson-Black  has donated a trophy, in the style of the Curtis Cup, to fill the gap. 
That's it pictured on the right.
Despite her long and successful playing and captaincy career, this is the first trophy to bear the name of the Deeside Golf Club honorary member and partner in law firm, Burness Paull.
Said Elaine:
"I took on the role of Junior Convener at Deeside earlier this year to help encourage our junior members and give something back to the club for all the support I have received over the years. I am delighted to put up a trophy for the Junior Open. "

Late entries for the Deeside Junior Open, which is open to boys and girls under 18 and is a qualifier for the Telegraph/BMW Junior Open, can be sent to the club's Director of Golf, Frank Coutts, at this Email address:

Or phone 01224 861041
The entry fee of £10 can be paid when checking in at the pro's shop on Monday. 
If there are enough entries from girls, they will have a separate prize list from the boys.
Entry is not restricted to local players. The organisers would be delighted to receive entries from Angus, Perthshire, even Fife, not to mention up North.
If you are not sure where Deeside Golf Club is, head for the village of Bieldside to the west of Aberdeen on the road to Culter and Banchory. Golf Road, Bieldside takes you over the old railway bridge and down to one of the best clubhouses in the country.
