Angus Watson’s opponent was former Scottish Amateur champion , George Duncan.George opened with 5 straight 3s and despite Angus bringing him back to 2up George went on to win 4 & 3.

Michael Giovannetti was 2 down with 2 to play and kept the match alive with a tap in birdie at the 17th.Unfortunately he could not replicate this result at the 18th and lost 1 down.

Steven Wightman played some excellent golf to win 3 & 2 and it was good to see Matthew Anderson returning to his usual high standards when winning 4 & 3.

Andrew Abercrombie was also 2 down with two to play when he secured  a birdie two at the 17th.Unfortunately he also lost at the last.

Ross Cameron suffered a bad night on the course when losing 5 & 3 which result secured a winning margin for Windyhill.

Adam McLeod improved the overall result with a fine 3 & 2 win.

This loss to Windyhill by a score-line 5 matches to 3 could result in the relegation of the team to Division 2.

with the match finishing on the 17th green.This match was an excellent experience for Scott who , I am certain , will be an exciting prospect in the coming years.

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 COMING BACK TO DOUGLAS PARK

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.
