It’s been a busy week at Dalmally. Last Tuesday saw the annual Dalmally v Oban Rotary match.
Two teams of eight, playing four, fourball better ball match play slugged it out on a pleasant evening. The course was playing extremely well, thanks in the main to the club’s voluntary greens staff, in particular Ewen Groat, the club’s voluntary equipment maintenance technician who had restored the fairway cutter to life.
After a close competition, Terry Macnair, captain of the Oban Rotary team announced the match was a draw.
Terry thanked everyone at Dalmally, the players and the lady members who laid on a great spread for the visitors and the home team.
In reply, club captain Graeme MacKechnie thanked the Rotary Team, who are always welcome guests at Dalmally, and with whom the annual match is always a welcome event on the club’s fixture list.
Friday saw the annual Ralph Boon Trophy match. By tradition, this gents fixture is played at an away club, with the match held at Crieff Golf Club this year. Despite an ominous weather forecast, Friday proved a perfect day for golf, with the course in immaculate condition. As ever, the welcome at Crieff was extremely warm and the hospitality excellent.
The competition, 18 holes Stableford, was fierce, with only two points between the first four players. Tony Graham pipped Terry Macnair, both on 33 points, but Tony with the bih. Third was Graeme MacKechnie on 32 points and fourth, James MacMillan on 31 points.
The day’s golf concluded with an excellent meal in the clubhouse along with a quiz and prizegiving. Everyone agreed that Crieff had proved one of the most successful venues for the competition and anticipated an early return.
Coming up at Dalmally on Sunday June 30 is the annual Three Man Team Stableford competition.
There are still a few afternoon and early morning (before 9am) tee times available. As an incentive to enter, here is one of the questions from Crieff quiz. The first team to enter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct answer will win half price entry – £22.50 instead of £45.
What is the maximum number of Stableford points (theoretically) possible for a scratch golfer to score at one hole?’
