Dalmally Golf Club’s competition season is in full flow with a fiercely contested MacIntyre Greensome the latest chance for members to strut their stuff on the course.

Played since 1995, the greensome format is good fun and an opportunity for impressive low scoring.

This year’s competition couldn’t have been closer, with only one stroke separating the top three teams.

Coming first with a nett 57 and one stroke better on the back nine were Ewen Groat and Bill Ross. Second, also on nett 57, were Angus MacGillivray with Graeme MacKechnie and Martin O’Keeffeclose close behind in third.

The club’s third Match Play Sunday was held during the last weekend of June. This is an alternative to the club’s gents Match Play Singles competition which was previously run across the season.

The current format involves three nine-hole singles matches played in one day with
players scoring points according to whether they win, halve or lose. This year’s winner was Arik MacKechnie who won all three of his matches.

The club continues to attract new lady members, several of whom are taking part in regular coaching sessions under the direction of club captain Graeme MacKechnie.
