Match Result: DUGS 5-1 Flat Caps


This was the fourth staging of the Caldwell Quaich and DUGS retained the trophy with a comprehensive win over the Flat Caps. Given Covid-19 restrictions, the format for this year’s match was changed from 36-holes foursomes to 18-holes four-ball match play. Conditions were very pleasant and the general consensus was that Royal Dublin was in excellent condition. Following a light meal on the veranda, the Quaich was presented by Henry Collier (President, Flat Caps) to Niall O’Connor (Captain, DUGS).
