I would like to apologise to Eric Gourlay and Brian Williams who were the actual winners of our only point against Strathmore and not David Lorimer and Derek Parrot as erroneously reported by me last week. Sorry gentlemen for my mistake.
Yours Ian Cowan
The Seniors got back to their winning ways last week with a good 4-2 away victory against Ballumbie golf club. Teams have now been selected for the the remaining games in August and are displayed on the Senior noticeboard in the gents locker room. Apologies to those members who have not been selected in this instance.
With 3 seniors fixtures to be played in August, the list for names is now displayed on the noticeboard within the clubhouse. Anyone wishing to be considered for these matches should ensure their name is added before this weekend.
SeniorsThe bubble has well and truly burst or rather exploded!! Following their undefeated start to the season, the seniors were thrashed by the whopping margin of 7 matches to 1 at Dunblane Golf Club with only debutant Ian Cowan and his partner Ray Bennett able to record a win, albeit by the narrowest of margins. The other games were not quite so evenly contested with a couple of “dog licences” and other heavy defeats thrown in. As usual the fast sloping greens with their treacherous borrows were given the blame. Efforts to get back on track will be afforded later this month with an away match at Ballumbie which also has a similar reputation for fast greens, time will tell on this one!!Next month’s matches are at home to St Andrews on 14th August when we will attempt to retain the Dick Hands Trophy, followed by away matches against Carnoustie Caledonia on the Buddon course on 22nd August and Strathmore 31st August. Lists for names for all of these matches will be posted on the Seniors notice board shortly.
The seniors continued their tremendous start to the season with another fine home victory over Ballumbie by the handsome margin of 5-1 (4 wins and two games halved). This form is likely to severely tested when they next visit Dunblane where the greens are normally slick and borrows huge and where many of the players struggled last time out. Given the aforementioned, it is surprising that 10 of that team have elected to try again, experience is a great advantage. Fingers crossed the performance and result will be better and our great winning run will continue.
The seniors continued their good form and winning run with a tight but excellent 4.5 to 3.5 victory over Dunblane over the Medal course.
The list for names for the return match at Dunblane on 5th July is now on the notice board.
