The R & A have advised that Dalhousie members (as well as members of other Carnoustie Golf Clubs) will be permitted to enter and exit the Open Championship. The following operational points were added:

  1. The exemption will apply to your members, but not their guests, friends, wives, husbands, etc.
  2. However if the member is attending with under 16s, then these individuals will also be permitted to leave and re-enter the course if accompanied by the member (a re-admittance wristband for the junior will need to be requested at the exit gate)
  3. Members may be asked to show some photo ID on returning to the course to ensure that these re-admittance tickets are not being passed around outside the venue

Captain's New Year Message.

December 28, 2017 15:36 by gordonl



2017 seems to have flashed past at an enormous rate (as, to be honest, many of my golfing exploits on Carnoustie Links have similarly done!) but it would be remiss of the captain not to acknowledge the camaraderie (as well as a fair chunk of innocently directed, apres golf ribbing, of course) which he has enjoyed during the year, from many Dalhousie members.


The dawning of 2018, as well as its enormous significance for Dalhousie, seems to have been reached at  extraordinary speed, particularly as the sub-group established to celebrate our 150th anniversary has now – astonishingly – been meeting up for FOUR and a half years. Hopefully, the schedule of events which has emanated from a barrow load of discussions and decisions will, first of all, satisfactorily celebrate one hundred and fifty astonishing years of Dalhousie’s contribution to golf in Carnoustie. Most importantly for your captain, however, will be the anticipated pleasure and pride which club members will derive from all the activities, events and enjoyment of yet another VERY special time in our club’s history.


In recognising the inestimable contributions made by countless Dalhousie names over the years, I would like to offer thanks to both the present Council and, in particular, the members of our sub group for their terrific support over four stirring years of effort. More than anything, however, I would thank all Dalhousie members who have contributed to my enjoyment of the past year and – with total sincerity – I wish you all a terrific 2018 and hope that you will throw yourselves into the programme of celebrations (and enjoy everything that lies ahead for us) during 2018.


With very best wishes,


Donald Ford

Sincere thanks to all members who have promptly completed the schedule of proposed Dalhousie events for 2018 – and duly returned them by November 30th. With much pre-planning to be carried out, early indications of members’ intentions to take part (or not!) in the list of events is of great assistance to Council.  

To those who have yet to complete and return their own forms, could I ask that they do so as soon as possible please? It is frightening to realise that 2018 is only a few weeks away ( with a major Dalhousie event in the first half of March) and there is MUCH to be done ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure that things go according to plan.  

Meantime, I hope pre-Christmas build-up is on schedule for members and, should your events form still require completion, look forward to hearing back from you as soon as possible.
