Dalhousie Seniors Lose To Blairgowrie GC

June 20, 2019 22:17 by ian

Dalhousie Seniors lost their home match against Blairgowrie by 51/2 to 1 1/2, an identical score to the first match in Blairgowrie. The match was played in blustery, but dry conditions and the newly grown rough presented a real challenge for all competitors. However, at least there was the opportunity for some of our golfers to meet some local celebrities, with John Philp managing to get a photograph with washed-up former runner Pete McColgan. 


Kennedy Cup 2019

June 13, 2019 15:32 by ian
There was a fine turnout of 24 golfers for this year’s Kennedy Cup competition for Senior golfers at Edzell Golf Club. The course was in excellent condition, although the weather (in keeping with most of this summer!) was wet and cool. Because of the conditions, scoring was not as good as in previous years, but even so, Stuart Braid managed to win with a fine score of 33 points. David Ashford won the Reg Neish Trophy for finishing second, two points back and Norman Howie won the Tanner Trophy for best over 70, also with 31 points. In a new innovation, an over-80s award was presented to Stuart Gearty. Many thanks to Pete McColgan, the Peter Pan of the Seniors world, for his organisation of the competition. And a special thanks to Pat Robb, who is bravely fighting serious illness and was unable to attend, but sent a message of support and gifts to all the competitors. He is very much in our thoughts.

Dalhousie GC Win Gary Player Salver

The Dalhousie team of D. Ford, I.Wilson, R. Geddes, T. Wotherspoon, C. Duncan and D. Ashford achieved a notable success in Carnoustie’s only inter-club strokeplay competition, which was played over the Burnside and Buddon Courses on Friday 7th of June. Conditions were dreadful, with heavy rain and cold easterly winds making scoring extremely difficult, but Dalhousie mastered the elements best and produced a stirring victory. Well played to all, and thanks to Mike Sinclair for his work in putting  the team together.

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.
