Drumnadrochit Golf Course

 

   " The second mixed foursome match was played on the Drumnadrochit course on Wednesday.  The course was in good condition during the first part of the game, the latter part having been played in a thunder storm; nevertheless, the match was finished in great spirit.  Fifteen competitors, including five ladies, entered, details being as follows; 1.Miss Iona Macdonald and Dr Macdonald,Kilmichael, 51;  2. Miss Nellie Cumming, Drumbuie, and Mr Macdonald, Balmacaan, 54;  3. Miss Cathie Macdonald, Balmacaan, and Mr D. Mackenzie, Milton, 57;  4 (a tie) Mr Jack Macdonald, Balmacaan, and Mr A. Munro, Milton, and Mr Mackintosh, Drumnadrochit, and Mr Colin Ferguson, Milton, 58.  The last couple were rather heavily handicapped.  Mrs Maclymont Needem and Mr Sutherland, Milton, and Miss Sutherland and Mr J. Campbell, Milton, brought in cards of 61.  

   The playing was good notwithstanding the adverse nature of the elements.  A number of very good approach strokes was noticeable; Mr Sutherland sent in some deadly shots with his mashie, but (adds our correspondent, who has a strong vein of humour) on account of the soft condition of the course rather large slices of the county flying about in the air were the order of the day.  The prizes were handed over by Miss Ella Macdonald, Balmacaan." (NC 27.5.1925)

   "The third mixed foursome match was played on the Drumnadrochit course on Wednesday.  The course was in good condition, the weather ideal, and the competitors in great form.  There were twelve entries, the following being the details ; 1. Miss Cathie Macdonald, Balmacaan, and Mr D. Mackenzie, Milton, 44; 2 Miss Ross, the Schoolhouse, and Mr Macdonald, Balmacaan, 54; 3. (a tie) Miss Nellie Cumming, Drumbuie, and Mr J. Campbell, Milton, and Mr Mackintosh, Drumnadrochit, and Mr Jack Macdonald, Balmacaan, 57;  4 Mr Alick Munro and Mr Colin Ferguson, Milton, 58. Miss Cathie Macdonald and Mr Mackenzie had a “walk over” with a score of 44.  Miss Ross and Mr Macdonald played a good game, but their approaches were lacking in “sting”.  Miss Cumming and Mr Campbell put up a stiff fight, the latter giving a display of hefty aerial driving" (NC 3.6.1925).

 

  "The first round of the test tournament (handicapped) was played on the Drumnadrochit course on Wednesday under ideal conditions.  The following were the results of the drawing and scoring :-  Miss Nellie Cumming 49 and Mr W. Mackintosh 48; Miss Iona Macdonald 46 and Mr D. Mackenzie 47; Mr J. Sutherland 37 and Mr W. Munro 44; Mr J. Macdonald 35 and Mr Ross 44; Miss Sutherland 51 and Mr C. Ferguson 40; Miss Macrae 47 and Mr Dawson 43; Mrs Mackintosh 48 and Mr J. Campbell 50; Mrs McClymont 47 and Miss Ross 53; Rev. A. Boyd 42 and Mr Ian Burgess 37; Mr A. Munro 48 and Mr F. Stewart 39.  

   The match was of great interest to watch, and was conspicuous by the absence of “turf raising” and “sky-scraping”.  Mr Ross, a visitor from Inverness, played faultless approaches, while his opponent, Mr J. Macdonald, played an excellent game and had the visitor “down and out” with a narrow margin of two points." (NC 10.6.1925)
