Match report from Chris Athanas:
Sadly , that's the closest BGC Seniors will get to this Trophy until the fixture is renewed in 2016  !

Thursday's match was lost by 2.5 to 5.5 . So , Glasgow have completed the treble ! However , this year was a much closer run thing than the overall score might suggest as two of Glasgow's winning full points were gained by the slenderest of single holes . Small margins indeed !

All had a most enjoyable day on and off the course in excellent golfing conditions . Many thanks indeed to the dining room and bar staff for their excellent service and fine food .
Thanks to Chris Athanas and his team, better luck next time!

Match 7 - Panmure v Blairgowrie (Away) - RESULT

 Sorry James MacFarlane (Captain of the Day) failed to supply a picture, 
so I thought you'd like to see some of our up and coming Juniors instead!

Sadly we lost by 5.5 to 2.5.

We had an excellent match against our friends at Panmure.  The usual standards of their hospitality were in evidence, the course was in good condition, as they build up to the Amateur next month (which they host jointly with Carnoustie) and the matches were played in an excellent, competitive but convivial spirit.  The weather was the only down-side: a cold day, made worse by a strong easterly wind.

The matches could hardly have been closer: 5 of the 8 were halved, 2 were lost 2&1, the other lost by one hole.  The upshot, therefore, was an overall loss by 5.5 to 2.5.  There is ground to be made up in the return fixture in order for Blairgowrie to retain the Senior Trophy, but all is to play for and we look forward to success at home in August.

Match 6 - Blairgowrie v Ladybank (Home) Result

Hamish Grant - Ladybank Captain       David Rice - Blairgowrie Captain

During blustery, mixed weather unfortunately Blairgowrie lost 2 - 6 to Ladybank, which was the same score as last years' home leg.  It was an enjoyable match lead by David Rice, followed by an excellent meal.
However, quite a bit to play for on the return match on Thursday 10th September.
Many thanks to all team members.

Match 5 - Blairgowrie v Dalhousie (Home) Result

 Doug Mitchell (Capt Dalhousie) - Graeme Hunter (Capt. Blairgowrie)

On a blustery fresh wind Blairgowrie Seniors managed a very respectful win against Dalhousie 4.5 - 2.5.
This was the 30th anniversary of our first game against Dalhousie, so a good first round, the return match will be tough on their home ground.  
We had an excellent post game dinner which everyone enjoyed. 
So compliments to the caterers and staff.
