2018-11-04 Kilkeel GC win inaugural Harry Ridler Trophy

Greenisland Golf Club visited Kilkeel on Sunday 4th November to compete for the first playing of the Harry Ridler Trophy. The Greenisland Club put up the trophy as a thank you for attending to one of their members who took ill at the side of the 18th a few months ago. On that occasion, members of the Rathfriland Sunday Club looked after the patient until an ambulance came and tended to him. As a result of that gesture, Greenisland presented the memento and the two clubs will now play yearly for the Harry Ridler trophy.

For the inaugural match, Kilkeel ensured their name was first on the trophy with a 5½ - 2½ win. Leslie Edgar received the trophy from Greenisland members.
