At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
The past week or two has been particularly busy at Dalmally.
To prove that playing golf is like riding a bicycle, Alan Campbell from Loch Awe came back from a few years break from the game to win his first major club trophy, the Dalmally Gents Senior Championship in his first year of playing it.
Last Sunday, August 30, with a level nett par 62, Alan took the trophy after a prolonged break from golf, three ahead of his nearest rival, Stephen Ross, himself on a very creditable 65.
Meanwhile, on the same day, Rena Ritchie took the Ladies Simmers Quaich with a two nine-hole round total of 33 Stableford points.
Tuesday September1 saw a ladies and gents outing to the scenic Kintyre Peninsula and the “wee gem” that is the Carradale Golf Course.
Carradale and Dalmally signed a reciprocal agreement towards the end of last season which affords members of both clubs favourable playing arrangements at each club.
The Dalmally visitors, after an unpromising drizzly start enjoyed a cool but dry day on the course, which as well as many golfing challenges affords stunning views to Arran and beyond.
An extremely enjoyable day.
