Dalhousie vs Downfield Report.

Following the postponement of the scheduled annual home match against Downfield a few weeks ago (after horrendous rain), there was much satisfaction expressed for Match Secretary Alan Baird’s subsequent efforts to find suitable tee times for the meeting to be rescheduled. Dalhousie pleasure at taking on the Dundee team was short-lived, however, as the home team –on a glorious Carnoustie evening - was soundly defeated by four and a half points to one and a half. The individual scores more or less mirrored the superiority of the visitors, although the sole victory by Donald Ford and Nick Yates was achieved on the eighteenth green, following a real “up and down” matchplay confrontation over the previous seventeen holes. On the eighteenth, however - having played a sensible and well executed second shot to lay up twenty-odd yards short of the Barry Burn - Nick proceeded to execute the ‘shot of the round’ with a magnificent pitch to fifteen inches from the hole. With neither of the opposition producing a final piece of magic in their longer putts to gain a half, the Yates’ grin at such an outcome was thoroughly merited. Such satisfaction may, however, be short-lived, as Dalhousie head to Downfield next week for the return fixture!
