DUGS v Flat Caps, The Island Golf Club, Friday 31st March 2017

Match Report

DUGS and Flat Caps assembled at The Island just after sunrise when tea/coffee and bacon rolls were served in the Front Lounge. John Quigley, Hon. Sec. of the Flat Caps, introduced both XIIs before setting out the schedule for the day. Morning foursomes would be followed by lunch and afternoon foursomes would be followed by dinner. The forecast was for a bright fresh day.

Playing off the medal tees, the links provided a formidable test. The Flat Caps took advantage of local knowledge and raced into an early lead ending the morning foursomes with a 4-2 advantage. Bovril and sherry at the turn, customary at Deal and Sandwich, was a nice surprise however.

A long lazy lunch gave DUGS a chance to regroup, lamb shank providing the sustenance required for an afternoon fight-back and reversal of the morning result. The 4-2 afternoon score was hard-fought however with five of the six matches being separated by 2 holes or less. In the end, a final score of 6-6 was a fair result and probably fitting for an inaugural match.

Dinner, preceded by the Trinity Grace, was followed by the customary formalities. Henry Collier, President of the Flat Caps, thanked DUGS for participating in what was their Society’s inaugural match. In response, Gavin Caldwell, President, Fran Quilty, Captain, and Fergus Duddy, Manager, thanked the Flat Caps for hosting us at The Island and wished them well in the future. Finally, we called time on what was a great day’s golf and camaraderie between kindred spirits.
