Dalhousie vs Turnberry Match

September 1, 2017 17:00 by gordonl

In quite superb weather, the annual Dalhousie v Turnberry ‘friendly’ took place on August 31st over the Championship Course at Carnoustie, where a pretty strong Dalhousie line-up ran out winners in a ‘whitewash’ of six matches to nil. In the number one match, Dalhousie’s Honorary Professional Colin Sinclair was in sparkling form as he and Donald Ford defeated Turnberry Director of Golf - Ricky Hall - and captain Peter Rae.

 

The camaraderie between both clubs was satisfyingly reinforced by a splendid meal in the Hogan Suite of the Golf Hotel. Much banter, consistent leg-pulling by Messrs Cavellini and McColgan and a feast of (often meaningless but hilarious) man-talk meant that the evening just sped by and there were more than a few bleary eyes on the first tee of the Buddon the next morning as the visitors and a handful of Dalhousie members re-engaged in a Stableford competition. Once again, the weather was outstanding and there is little doubt that Dalhousie participants will already be looking forward to next year’s visit to Ayrshire a) to renew battle and b) to reinforce the tremendous harmony between both clubs’ playing members. With so much in common between both the memberships of each and the magnificence of their respective ’big’ courses, this annual get-together is rapidly becoming one of the highlights of Dalhousie’s summer inter-club golfing diary.
