DONALD CAMERON FIRST MATCH

The first match of the 2018 Donald Cameron League campaign saw the formidable Cawder team being entertained at Douglas Park.

Due to work commitments  our Club Champion , Alistair Thomson , was unable to play.However the team put up a great performance to hold Cawder to a 4 all halved match.

Craig Young played some superb gold to defeat his opponent 3 & 1.Clark Nelson was in impressive form resulting in a 6 & 5 win.

Matthew Anderson was not as his best and lost 3 & 1.Angus Watson was well down for much of his match but produced an exciting come-back to win on the last green with a birdie 3.

Steven Wightman,Chris McManus and Dave McClement all lost before Ross Cameron produced the win to give the team their halved match with a fine 2 up victory.

The team are away to Dullatur next Wednesday.

“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.

LAM 2017

Sixty nine ladies attended this year’s Annual meeting, during which Ladies’ Captain Christina Graham and key speakers, Honorary Treasurer Denise Macnaughton, Match Secretary Barbara Aitchison, and Junior Girls’ Convenor Susan Rattray gave a summary of their year.  In addition to the usual reports and business, two additional matters were raised: the Ladies’ Constitution was updated and a lively discussion was held on the proposal made to the meeting that the Silver Cup Knockout Competition should be open to Silver Players only. The cup, the Ladies’ Section’s first trophy, was presented to the Ladies Section, ninety six years ago, in 1921 by the Gents Committee, to be played for by all Lady Members.  A vote was taken and the proposal was accepted.

Ladies’ Captain Christina thanked her committee and all members for their support over the season and for helping to raise £2380 for the chosen charities this year.  She also made special mention of the Patrick Trophy team on winning the trophy two years running and for the third time in 4 years.

Three new committee members, Kirsty Fergusson Honorary Secretary, Brenda Murray Honorary Treasurer and Karen Neilson were welcomed.  The retiring members, Past Captain Mary McLean, Joyce Ferguson and Barbara Aitchison, were thanked for their commitment and hard work to committee and club.

Ladies’ Vice Captain Anne Reid introduced proposed new Vice Captain elect Denise MacNaughton, retiring Honorary Treasurer.

The ladies’ champion, Fiona Rattray concluded the annual meeting with a most amusing speech.

ANDRA KIRKALDY FINAL

The Douglas Park Past Captains’ team reached the final of the Andra Kirkaldy Trophy which was played on Sunday at Cawder Golf Course against old foes Lenzie.

In a very close fought match our team was beaten by one hole with the final pairing of Graham White & Captain Brian Thistle winning their tie 3 up but just missing out on achieving an overall halved match.

My thanks to all Past Captains who performed so admirably this year and to Captain Brian Thistle who came in as a late substitute on Sunday morning.
