West Of Scotland Inter County Jamboree Day 220th June 2016
Success for Dunbartonshire and Argyll at West Of Scotland Jamboree23rd June 2016
The Donald Cameron team travelled to local rivals Bearsden to play their fifth match of the 2016 campaign.
This turned out to be a great night for the team as they recorded a 6 to 2 win which result ensured that Douglas Park are the 2016 Division 2 champions and winners of the Campsie Trophy which tr will be presented to the Club at the annual dinner in February 2017.
Chris McManus led the team out but suffered a 5 & 4 loss to Bearsden’s best player Chris Prior.
This was the only loss suffered by the Douglas Park team as the next 5 matches all went our way.
Angus Carrick won comfortably 6 & 5 finishing with a delightful birdie 3 at the long 13th hole.Angus is probably one of the finest strikers of a golf ball when he is in this form.
Team selector , Angus Watson , continued his unbeaten form registering a 5 & 4 win.
Our “Senior ” representative , Dave McClement , faced a hard fought match with former Douglas Park member , Craig Hughes , before winning 2 & 1.
Adam McLeod proved too strong against his opponent winning 5 & 4 and Steven Wightman also registered a convincing win 6 & 4.
This left two matches on the course with both matches finishing all square involving Craig Young and Andrew Abercrombie.
The final match will be played next week , Wednesday 29th June , at home to Hayston GC . The team will be making every effort to finish on a winning note as that will result in a clean sweep of all 6 matches , a feat that I have never experienced in my years of involvement with the team.
Club members who wish to see the team in action next Wednesday will be made most welcome.
