  • Dalmilling Cup round 2 results.

  • We had 21 players line up for the second of our Dalmilling Cup events played this week. With only 3 scores under par it would appear the course took a heavy toll on the players through penal rough and rock hard greens which made scoring more difficult. Ian Young, James Burnett and Alan Muir tied on nett level par 69 with both Ian and Alan managing to birdie hole 16 and ultimately Ian pipped the others for 4th spot on countback. In 3rd place was another of our recent new members, Robert Greenwood who fired birdies at holes 1/6 but dropped 6 shots in between and 4 more shots were spilled as Robert turned in nett 4 under par. The inward half was a rollercoaster as 8 shots were dropped on holes 11-15 before a par at 16 brought some respite. However an unfortunate 8/7 finish meant 7 more shots were spilled and the result was an inward half of nett 3 over par and an overall nett 68 (1 under par). Runner-up this week was Ian Gray whose only blemish in his first 5 holes was a quadruple bogey at hole 3. Further shots were dropped at 6/7/8 as Ian finished nett 1 over par at halfway. Bogeys at 10/13 were a setback but a birdie at 16 appeared to put him back on track. However, 2 finishing bogeys derailed any chance of victory as Ian finished nett 3 under par on the inward half, nett 67 (2 under par) overall. Our winner this week was Hugh Mackie who dropped shots at 1/2/4 before 4 successive pars steadied the ship. A bogey at hole 9 meant Hugh was nett 3 under par at halfway but a poor start to the back 9 saw 3 consecutive bogeys on holes 10-12 but birdies at 13/14 appeared to put him back on track. Despite dropping a shot at 15 and finishing with successive double bogeys, Hugh was back in nett 1 under par for an overall nett 65 (4 under par) and a two shot victory. The two's competition was keenly fought with Robert Greenwood (6), Scott Kirk (4), Alan Smeeton and Hugh Mackie (13) and John Boyle (15) all making two's. However the prize pot will be shared among the other 4 as John Boyle does not enter the 2's event. Hugh Mackie currently has a 2 shot lead after 2 rounds of this best of 3 event but with 18 holes to play the trophy is still up for grabs.

We are now in the busiest part of the season with all match play events in full swing. Please ensure you arrange your games in a timely manner and not at the last minute. Extensions will only be granted in exceptional circumstances by Alan Smeeton. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter and good luck to everyone left in these events.

  • Electronic score returns

  • Please refer to the email instruction sent out on 10/08/20. If members require further assistance in this matter they should contact Alan Smeeton as per the guidance attached to the email.

  • Amendment to procedure

  • Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game, the following procedure must now be followed by all players who pull out of a game after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
