Sandra Goldie wins the 2018 Ladies Championship

The Douglas Park Golf Club Championship matches took place yesterday with Fiona Rattray against Sandra Goldie in the Championship, Helen Faulds against Olive Mackay in the Seniors and Kirstie Souter and Christiana Capaldi in the Junior Girls Final.

Fiona who had played well in the West of Scotland Inter County Matches last week at Erskine eventually ran out of steam — It was her 8th match of  a long hard week playing a very steady Sandra Goldie and eventually lost on the 17th Green. She did however have an EAGLE 2 at the 16th hole !!

Helen and Olive had a ding dong match with Helen being the eventual winner 2&1

The Junior Girls match was well played with Christiana being the winner

Many congratulations go to the winners and many thanks go to all the referees – Helen Robertson (Championship), Denise McNaughton (Senior Ladies) and Susan Rattray (Junior Girls)

JUNIOR NEWS

JJ McCarry Team

At the halfway point of the season, our JJ McCarry Juniors are sitting top of League Division 2 with a perfect 100% record.  We started the season at home to Kirkintilloch and won 3.5-0.5 with wins from Scott Souter, Farris Hassan and David McColl and a half for Greg MacLeod.

 

We then came up against a strong Bearsden side which contained 2 county players, and boasted handicaps all lower than ours, and ran out 4-0 victors.  Incredible wins from David McColl and Robbie Trainer, over the 2 county players, and emphatic wins also from Greg MacLeod and Sophie Murphy (on her competitive debut) completed the whitewash.

 

The return match at Bearsden looked a tough one, away from home and with a few regulars missing, however the team managed another victory.  Robbie Trainer led the team out against one of Bearsden’s county players and held onto a narrow 1up lead for much of the round.  After driving into the trees at 17 and having to lay up, he proceeded to hole a 30ft putt for a par to take a 1up lead down the last and secure a win.  Greg MacLeod and David McColl had impressive victories to bring home the victory.  Ross Mirmelli (making his competitive debut) stepped in at the last minute and unfortunately came up against an opponent having a great night.

 

Tonight (Friday 8th) marks our final home fixture against Dougalston with Robbie Trainer, Ross Mirmelli and debuts for Chris Lathan and Archie Scott.

 

Marley Team

Our Marley team have played just one match so far, away at Hilton Park.  Unfortunately, due to the bank holiday weekend, we only had a 3 person team and, with the Marley format being a 4 person combined stableford competition, this put us slightly behind.  We still have 5 fixtures to make this up, starting this Sunday (10th) away at Glasgow, with Ross Mirmelli, Archie Scott, Chris Lathan and Cameron Burns representing the club. 

 

My thanks go to all team members and their parents for their commitment, along with both team managers for their ongoing support; Calum Gordon (JJ McCarry) and Alan Dunipace (Marley)

Lady Captain’s Day

Prizewinners Lady Captains Day

Some of the prizewinners on the day

72 ladies took part in a Tri-am on Friday 1st June. This was over 11 holes  as there were dire warnings of thunder storms after 2.00pm. — In the event it did not happen & the day was completed in warm sunshine.

The 2 best stableford scores counted at each hole
Congratulations go to the winners with 54 points — Barbara Aitchison, Alison Miller & Elaine McEwan.
Runners up with 53 points were June Gordon, Susan Rattray & Linda Robertson.

At the same time they had an individual competition where they were given stableford points which they could loose in certain circumstances.

There were 6 of our older ladies who took part in the putting competition which Drew so ably organises for them. This was  won by Marjory Cooper after a playoff & some amazing putting.

The Primrose Cup for the junior girls was won by 13 year old Sophie Murphy (pictured above)

In the evening everyone returned for another of Lisa’s excellent buffets & a prize giving.

R&A 9 hole Championship Qualifier

Thanks to all 44 members who played in this event on Bank Holiday Monday, 7th May. This was a most encouraging entry for a new competition which Scottish Golf had asked clubs to get involved with to appeal to as wide a cross-section of club members as possible.Those who participated enjoyed ideal conditions and some excellent golf was played.

The winners going forward to the next stage at Milnathort in June are David McClement and Steven Cairns after a count back on the last 3 holes

Thanks, also, for the forbearance shown by those members who did not take part in the event but played the  designated 9 hole course twice.

A new competition such as this in an already crowded golfing diary inevitably creates logistical challenges but the goodwill shown by members on the day allowed for a most enjoyable and worthwhile competition

Season Opening Shotgun and Past Captain’s Dinner

The official opening of the Douglas Park golf season took place on Saturday. The day started with the morning shotgun  stableford  pairs event for the Camel Trophy. This was won by Mark Carnegie and Graeme Maxwell who, due to a prior engagement could not attend the prizegiving. Runners-up Scott Brown and Gareth Young are shown with Immediate Past Captain Alistair Forrest who presented the prizes.

The afternoon was given over to the Captain versus Past Captain’s match. A keenly contested match was won by the Past Captain’s team by 7 matches to 5.

This was followed by a most enjoyable evening buffet during  which Immediate Past Captain Alistair was officially inducted into the Past Captain’s Society.

Wee Wonders at Douglas Park

A qualifying event for the Wee Wonders competition was held at Douglas Park on Thursday 12th April. Competitors from as far afield as Dumfries, Troon, Gullane and Stirling, along with our own budding stars Cameron Burns and Gethin Eynon,  produced some very high quality golf in the cold and blustery conditions. The best return of the day over the 9 holes 1,2 and 12-18  was a highly creditable 34. Given that the ages ranged from 7 to 11 this was an outstanding performance.

Sincere thanks to  Vice-Captain  Alan Dunipace for his registration duties; to members Gordon Innes, Len McFadyen and Ian Steven for acting as course marshalls and, of course, to Assistant Professional Andrew Hutchison for organising the event, including the course and the scorecards on the  day. Many of the parents in attendance remarked on how good the organisation of the event had been compared to similar events held on other courses.

Here are just some of the competitors who took part on the day.

BE FIRST OUT AT CARNOUSTIE

R&A 9 hole Championship (Grand Final Carnoustie, July 14th 2018)

 

This new initiative by Scottish Golf gives Douglas Park members the opportunity to compete in a 9-hole Stableford pairs competition. Pairs can be female, male, mixed or junior, although only one under-18 per team is allowed.

 

The competition will be played on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7th, over holes 1,2 and 12-18 so that all competitors finish at the clubhouse. Handicap adjustments for the 9-hole course will be made on the day. The team score is calculated from the combined stableford points of both players.

 

The winning Douglas Park pair will qualify for the National final in June, with the opportunity to progress to the Grand Final at Carnoustie to be held on 14th July 2018.

 

For anyone NOT wishing to take part in the 9-hole competition, 18 hole play will be available but to ease the flow of play this will consist of playing the designated 9-hole course twice.

 

This is a unique opportunity for friends and relations to compete together for the chance of progressing to a prestigious Grand Final at the historic Carnoustie Links in the week before the Open Championship is played there.

 

Entries for the club competition can be made now via the BRS booking system in advance of the day itself – Monday 7th May 2018.

“Wonderful” Whisky Night at Douglas Park

An enthusiastic audience enjoyed an evening devoted to whisky last Friday in the Douglas Park lounge. The very knowledgeable speaker from Glengoyne distillery gave an fascinating talk on the history of our  national drink. Key dates reflecting significant years in whisky’s development were entered on bingo cards and those with lines of dates and all four corners on the card won prizes. It was both innovative and  highly entertaining. This was interspersed with a range of whisky tastings which were greatly savoured by those attending.

Catering manager Lisa Cuthbert was ably assisted by Charlie Anderson in providing excellent canapes to help absorb the alcohol. An evening much appreciated by all who attended.
