Dalhousie Seniors v St Andrews New Club

September 20, 2017 14:01 by ian
Dalhousie played the second leg of this fixture, seeking to restore some pride following a disappointing 51/2 1/2 defeat over the St Andrews New Course in May. In glorious sunshine, over a beautifully prepared Championship Course, we outplayed our competitive opponents to win 31/2 to 21/2. Not enough to take the trophy overall, but honour was regained & an enjoyable time was had by all. We look forward to next year's return!

Panmure Seniors v Dalhousie Seniors – July 20th

July 24, 2017 11:26 by gordonl

After the splendid victory by the Seniors against Panmure at Carnoustie in May, there was an understandable confidence in the team which headed to Barry for the return match. Unsurprisingly, the stiff test provided by both the hosts and VERY difficult rough made the task much more difficult. As usual, the course itself was in superb condition and the many subtleties of very slick greens were pretty difficult to read for the visitors. There were some splendid tussles, with the last green being decisive in four of the seven ties. As that statement indicates, it WAS a very tight contest and, fittingly, it duly ended all square at three and a half points each.  (That left Dalhousie as clear winners in the 2017 confrontations, of course!)


The hospitality generated by the hosts was, as ever, simply splendid, and it was a very contented Dalhousie team which eventually headed for home. If there was one disappointment, it was the absence of TV cameras…..the companies clearly preferring the minor event at Royal Birkdale to the much more exciting one over Panmure!

Seniors Kennedy Cup 12th June 2017 At Edzell GC
25 Dalhousie Seniors enjoyed a splendid day out at Edzell while competing for the Kennedy Cup. The weather was warm and breezy and the course was superbly presented. Scoring was excellent, with Lindsay Hood winning the Kennedy Cup with a score of 39 points, Gordon Adam winning the Reg Neish Trophy with 35 points, on count back from Pat Robb, and David Bell winning the Tanner Trophy for over seventies with 35 points, also on count back from Pat Robb, proving that at 82 there is still hope for us all!
The catering was, as ever, superb and the welcome warm. With the Carnoustie Country half price deal offering a round for £23, I would highly recommend a visit this summer to our members!

Dalhousie Seniors vs Panmure Seniors.

May 26, 2017 08:33 by gordonl

After heavy defeats to both Blairgowrie and St. Andrews New earlier in the month, the Dalhousie Seniors brought May to a much more acceptable conclusion by soundly defeating Panmure on the Championship Course by five and a half matches to one and a half. Without doubt, Malcolm Lowe was ‘star man’ as, playing in the first match with Graeme Paton, he was heading for a gross 73 or thereabout  - but, sadly, pulled his second at the eighteenth out-of-bounds. The pair had set the barrier high, however, and the remainder of the team (well, most of them!) followed suit with excellent performances.  

The weather was absolutely magnificent, the Championship Course rapidly regaining its ‘normal’ splendour and the post-match meal in the Golf Hotel was also first class. There is huge enthusiasm for the return match at Barry in July, though Captain Ford reminded his team mates that a promised pre-match programme of press-ups, star jumps and pelvic thrusts on the first tee - should further defeats ensue as the season progresses - is NO idle threat!  

“Early to bed” on June 21st is thus the clear instruction for senior team members, prior to the return match against a very strong Blairgowrie side the following day. The taste of another victory would, indeed, be sweet…….
