Council has arranged three courses
for alternative golf during the July Open preparations and the tournament
itself. In spite of three separate messages, a fourth club has yet to respond.
The present availability is as follows:-
Edzell has kindly offered the courtesy of the course to Dalhousie
members from July 2nd to 22nd. Bookings should be made
well in advance, if possible, through Alistair Webster in the Pro shop on 01356
Arbroath has offered the links to members at a price of £15 per
round. The course is likely to be exceptionally busy in the lead-up to The
Open, so DGC members are asked to give as much notice as possible to Lindsay
Ewart in the Pro Shop. He is on 01241 875837.
Kirriemuir has offered to accommodate DGC members at a similar cost
of £15 per round. Contact should be made through Alan Tucker at 01575 573317 to
arrange tee times – once again, please give as much notice as possible.
Forfar Golf Club has not yet replied to enquiries on availability.
If further opportunities arise,
members will, of course, be advised immediately.
On a separate topic, several
members have enquired whether – as in past Open Championships – DGC members
will be allowed access to the R & A ‘marquee’ during the tournament for
teas, coffees etc etc. As soon as we have a reply, it will be circulated by
e-mail, put on the club website and displayed on the notice Board in the Golf
Please contact me if there are any
queries on the above – by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by mobile phone - 07711 805580.
