Match 04 - vs Glenbervie GC Seniors on Tuesday 7th May

Result - Match 03 Vs Downfield Away.

In extremely windy conditions, the Seniors came a  cropper at waterlogged Downfield but narrowly avoided a whitewash.

The team only managed one halved match out of eight, however by all accounts it was an enjoyable game and my thanks to John Hope for acting as Captain for the day.

The feedback  received is that due to the poor winter, Downfield,  like many other courses has severe drainage problems at the moment which is making the course even heavier than usual.

Score - 1/2 to 7 1/2.

Result - Match 2 - Vs Edzell on 11th April

On a cold but dry day, the home match against Edzell resulted in a 5 -5 draw.

With many of the games going to the final hole it turned out to be a very close and enjoyable match.

Positive reports were received from both teams on the first class condition of the courses and our excellent catering.

Thanks once again to Captain of the day  - Bill Younger.

Result - Match 1 Vs Ladies

On a bitterly cold but sunny day both teams played some excellent golf considering the conditions, but despite many of the games going to to the final hole, the Seniors just  managed to prevail and win the Columbine Cup back again with a flattering  8 - 4 victory.

Many thanks to the Ladies, our Seniors' Team and also the catering staff for a  wonderful day out.
