Craig Young came up against an opponent in form who was 5 under par when he defeated Craig 5 & 4.
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.

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.

Congratulations to past Captain Ian Letford who won the Douglas Park Trophy at the Seniors Open on Tuesday 4th July. Rain started at 4am and continued unceasingly until 1pm resulting in a number of late withdrawals and a reduced field of 72 players. Surface rain appeared on some greens about 10am but thanks to the efforts of Drew and his staff the course remained eminently playable throughout. Many of our visitors commented on the excellent condition of the course. Scores were unusually high and Ian’s excellent nett 68 achieved in the first group of the day was never challenged. The Quaich for the best scratch score was also retained in the club by past club champion, Danny Ward with a gross score of 80.

Last Saturday Douglas Park hosted Bearsden in the annual GowGlen Shield match and in a weather interrupted afternoon, managed to retain the trophy 10 holes up.
First played in 1901, the match consists of 12 Greensomes matches led off by a courtesy match between the Captains and Secretary/Vice Captain.
Although the match started in dry weather, the clouds soon gathered and we were soon under thunder and lightning, followed by a hailstorm which turned the greens white! The horn blew and the match paused for over an hour before the decision was made to reduce the match to 9 holes, played over holes 1 and 2, then 12-18, with matches played to the 18th green.
The traditional dinner took place and was followed by playing for the Forrest Putter, a one club challenge over a short, composite course which was won by Bearsden.
A good time was had by all, even surviving the Captains’ bad jokes! Thanks are due to all players, the course staff and the Clubhouse staff for their contributions to the event.
