Downfield vs Dalhousie

August 4, 2017 09:44 by gordonl
Following the postponement of the first Dalhousie v Downfield match at Carnoustie this season (due to torrential rain), no-one should have been the least surprised when another five-hour downpour began in Dundee as the two teams stepped on to the first tee to do battle in the return fixture.

A solid drenching of the twenty four players was soon underway. Sadly, the Downfield course, looking magnificent, was unable to cope with the amount of water which was falling and, with most groups having played nine holes, the sensible decision was taken and a VERY soggy collection straggled its way back to the clubhouse.

In contrast to the rearranged first match (which Dalhousie lost by four and a half to one and a half), the visitors to Downfield were up in two, down in one, with three all square when the whistle blew; NOT claimable as a victory, of course, but a good Dalhousie performance nevertheless. An excellent meal was enjoyed afterwards, the company and banter was first class, but the Graeme Paton trophy remains the property of Downfield for yet another year. Drat! 2017 might have been the comeback year....
