SENIORS’ OUTING TO EDZELL

June 12, 2018 17:15 by donald

There was scarcely a breath of wind up at Edzell, as nineteen Dalhousie Seniors turned up on June 11th to compete for the Kennedy Cup, the Reg Nish Trophy and the Tanner Trophy. The popularity of the annual day out was well and truly maintained, with the Stableford competition producing some excellent points totals - in benign conditions off the yellow tees. With one Mulligan permitted per golfer, there was even more reason to throw caution to the wind from the tee, though some members (including the Captain!) totally forgot that such was available. We won’t forget next year…..

 

The Kennedy Cup was won by Bill Jackson, who played splendidly to amass thirty nine points in his round. Murray Kydd lifted the Reg Nish Trophy, while John MacDougall collected the Tanner Trophy. Suitably rewarded with a bottle of wine and a tube of new balls, it goes without saying that at least three Seniors returned to Carnoustie with a song in their hearts!

 

As expected, the course was in fine condition, though most found the slower pace of the greens (by comparison with Carnoustie Links) difficult to conquer.  Off the course, the quality of service - bacon rolls on arrival, a splendid two course meal after golf and a warm welcome in the Pro Shop from Alastair Webster and his assistant, Carol - was everything for which Edzell has become renowned. In spite of quite a few call-offs which necessitated late personnel changes, Peter McColgan had everything under control (he claimed!) and deserves thanks for his organisation of one of the most enjoyable days out in the Dalhousie calendar. If the level of banter in the dining room is anything to go by, nineteen members had a superb time!
