Bruce Putting Cup.

June 29, 2018 11:34 by Gordon

The annual competition for the Bruce Putting Cup was held on the practice green on June27th. An excellent turnout of members enjoyed great overhead conditions, with two rounds of the nine holes laid out by Sandy Reid resulting in a sudden-death play-off between Alan Baird, Aidan McColgan and Donald Ford. In spite of the enormous amount of time spent over the last two months “on my stance, swing, concentration, shakeless arms, wrists, shoulders and perfect stroke”, the Dalhousie Treasurer three-putted the first hole of the play-off from around four feet. That left Messrs. Baird and Ford to battle it out, and the Captain was left speechless when his long, first putt at the fourth extra hole hit the cup but refused to drop. The Match Secretary then sank an excellent putt at the next to win the trophy.

 

A first class buffet was served in the Golf Hotel thereafter, and the evening closed with the seven-time winner of the trophy, Arthur Coleman,  presenting the prizes – a duty which he did with the utmost grace and pleasure.

Dalhousie v Edzell.

May 22, 2018 16:30 by Gordon

The return match against Edzell over the Championship Course presented Dalhousie with the Herculean task of overcoming a  five matches to one deficit from the away fixture two weeks previously. The Willock Bowl – one of the home club’s finest trophies – was at stake once again and relatively benign weather (no doubt ordered the previous night by Captain Andrew Turnbull in his prayers!) certainly reduced the possibility of a Dalhousie victory. On a shortened course, Edzell took full advantage of the favourable conditions and ran out comfortable winners by five and a half matches to a half. It was a brave effort by Norman Howie and David Ashford which prevented the whitewash, but the star of the evening was undoubtedly Edzell’s Andy Cooper, whose phenomenal striking and brilliant iron play saw him round in gross 70. Captain Donald Ford and Match Secretary Alan Baird (principally the latter!) held their own until the ninth hole, but three superb birdies on the way back sealed the away victory. The defeated Dalhousie pair were suitably glowing in praise of Andy Cooper’s performance, which – in all honesty – is unlikely to be bettered by any amateur on the big course this season.

 

The evening was rounded off by another splendid meal in the Golf Hotel, some sympathetic words from Captain Turnbull not REALLY lessening the disappointment of yet another Dalhousie loss, but widespread agreement was expressed at each of the dinner tables that the friendship between the clubs was in ample evidence once again. Edzell have very kindly offered the courtesy of the course to Dalhousie in the three weeks or so of July closures for The Open; given spaces in the home club’s own fixtures and tournaments to allow reasonable tee-off times, all DGC members  can therefore anticipate a warm welcome should a July visit be planned

BLAIRGOWRIE SENIORS v DALHOUSIE SENIORS CAPTAIN'S REPORT

May 4, 2018 16:56 by Gordon

Dalhousie’s first Senior Inter-Club match of the season took place on May 3rd at Blairgowrie. With the Rosemount and Lansdowne still showing the signs of a long, cold winter, the two layouts and, of course, the countless trees which play SUCH a big part in the success or failure of performance, were displaying little evidence of nature welcoming the first week of May to Perthshire. Nevertheless, there was some excellent golf played – by both sides – with the home team running out as victors by four and a half matches to two and a half.

 

Home captain, Colin Blues, was undoubtedly the star performer, as he put together an almost faultless display from tee to green (his short game was just stunning), finishing up with a gross 71 (net 65) and, with his 82-year-old partner, Bill Farquharson, the two comfortably defeated Donald Ford and Lindsay Hood. The four and two victory would have been close to an embarrassment for Dalhousie, had Lindsay not played some excellent shots himself to prevent TOTAL embarrassment!

 

As always, the hospitality displayed by the hosts was absolutely superb, with both lunch and a splendid post-match dinner enjoyed by all. Needless to say, the camaraderie enjoyed by everyone who took part did nothing other than reinforce the friendship which has developed over thirty two years between the Dalhousie and Blairgowrie senior members. The latter are, apparently, within just one victory of squaring the overall scores between the two clubs…..the opportunity to stop that in its tracks is presented in June, when Dalhousie play hosts on the Championship course. It could be QUITE a match!!
