Dalhousie Dinner and 2018 Trophy Awards

March 19, 2019 09:52 by gordonl

The ‘postponed’ Dalhousie Dinner and presentation of awards for the 2018 golf season took place in the Carnoustie Golf Hotel on Friday, March 15th. It was preceded by the second annual golf tournament on the Championship Course, in celebration of the Club’s 150th anniversary in 2018. Bruce Ferrier won the inaugural event last March, but it was Dalhousie’s youngest member, Michael Stewart, who swept all opposition aside as he amassed thirty eight Stableford points on an extremely testing afternoon of fierce winds. (As Dens Park stalwarts, both Bruce and Michael will at least be able to boast that they achieved something which Dundee F.C. are unlikely to witness in season 2018-19!!)


No fewer than FORTY ONE trophies and medals, painstakingly brought together once again by Ian Wilson and Alan Baird, were presented to the triumphant members from 2018. An excellent evening was once again enjoyed by all, with a splendid meal provided by The Carnoustie Golf Hotel and its hard-working staff, while guest speaker Michael Wheatley entertained the audience with some excellent, humorous story-telling from his own sporting background in rugby, cricket and golf.


It would be remiss not to mention the tremendous contribution made to Dalhousie in its sesquicentenary year by Clive Douglas. Not only did he specially compose and write “The Dalhousie 150th March” for the bagpipes, he donated a beautifully framed tableau of the music,  as well as a brief background history of the event itself, while his brilliant idea to apply the signatures of ALL who attended the ‘big’ Dinner last August to the mounting around the finished article was inspirational. It will now join the fascinating Dalhousie memorabilia around the walls of The Dalhousie Suite – room 116 – in the Golf Hotel.


It is fair to say – in spite of the disappointing numbers who attended the Dinner – that the curtain was perfectly brought down on an outstanding year of celebrations.

Members will no doubt be aware of the departure of Dalhousie’s Honorary Professional, Colin Sinclair, who has accepted the role of Chief Executive at the Nairn Golf Club. Colin has been a superb member of the Carnoustie Golf Links’ team for twenty years, is steeped in both Carnoustie golf and our Dalhousie history, so it is sad to see him leave after the enormous contribution he has made to members, season ticket holders and countless visitors to the Professional’s Shop.


Derek Cavellini organised a farewell evening out at the Cambustay Hotel in Broughty Ferry, so that club members could wish him well in his new career. It was a hugely enjoyable evening, punctuated with much story-telling, memorable – generally hilarious – conversational gems;  a fitting picture is attached, as Club Captain Donald Ford hands over the Club’s signed Carnoustie print as a ‘thank you’ for his enormous contribution to both the Dalhousie Golf Club and Carnoustie Links.
