2018 Spanish Seniors Festival

Monday, 26 March 2018

Monday 22nd October:

After Sunday’s practice round, where the Captains team (Drew’s) narrowly defeated the Past Captains (Gordon’s) team the Festival started in earnest today with the first round in the pairs competition.

Glorious sunshine and fine weather with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s, produced some sparkling golf.  Leaders after round 1 are Rob Craw and Allan Hogg who top both the scratch and Net leader board with a score of 66/63.0.  In second place in the scratch are Nick Robson and Andy Campbell 4 shots adrift on 70.  In 3rd place are Stuart Drysdale and Les Pirie on 72.

In the handicap section, local pairing of Phil Browne and Dave Marriot and only 0.5 behind, with 3rd place being held by Alan Harrington and Steven Connolly on 64.0

Tomorrow sees the first round of the Singles Competition, and with the forecast for the week promising even warmer weather we are sure the scores will match.

Autumn Meeting 23rd/24th August Downfield G C

Monday, 13 August 2018

No place like home for Graham Bell, winner of autumn meeting at Downfield

Graham Bell (Downfield) and Derek Paton (Dunnikier Park) led the field at the end of the first round and they were still there in first and second places after the second and final round of our autumn meeting at Downfield Golf Club, Dundee.
Graham, playing over his home course, headed a field of well over 100 with so-steady rounds of 70 and 71 for a three-under-par total of 141. His winning margin would have been greater but, after birdieing the 10th, 11th and 12th in his second round, he bogeyed the 17th and 18th holes.
Derek, the only danger, left himself with mission impossible after bogeying the second, third and fifth in his second round. He did recover a bit to birdie the fourth, 11th, 12th and 14th, finishing with rounds of 70 and 73 for 143.
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) bounced back from a double bogey 6 at the first to birdie the second, fourth, 13th and 15th in coming through to fill third place on 145 (73-72).

Derek did however have the consolation of topping the Handicap section with a Net score of 141, with Duncan Hamilton (Mortonhall) second 3 shots behind on 144.
