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!
