Match Result: 8.5-3.5

 

DUGS comprehensively won the Caldwell Quaich at the 3rd attempt. Despite heavy rain forecast for the morning, Baltray ignored the forecast and miraculously remained dry throughout the morning and afternoon foursomes. The Quaich, named in honour of Gavin Caldwell, only the third Irishman to Captain the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews, was presented at dinner by Henry Collier (President, Flat Caps) to Fergus Duddy (Captain, DUGS).
