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.
