West of Scotland Inter-County “A” League
Dunbartonshire 5.5, Renfrewshire 2.5
Report from Jim Paton, DGU “A” Team Manager.
On arrival at Elderslie GC, you couldn’t see the end of the first tee due to dense fog. We decided to wait 30 mins but decided it was too dangerous to go onto the course as the players would not be able to see who was in front of them or where even the holes were shaped.
Renfrewshire GC contacted Paisley GC as it is higher up and the majority of the holes there were in sunshine. So rather than postpone the match we agreed to play there.
To accommodate Paisley GC we split into two groups, starting at both the 1st and 10th tees, playing in four-balls, but as singles matches to allow Paisley their course back as soon as possible.
After the two previous matches, where we were unbeaten, albeit both at home, the challenge was now to see how we could perform away from home.
I struggled to get a full team during week and had to bring in two rookies, at the last minute. Who said rookies couldn’t win anything? Well, we had two and Ross and Chris both won their games. Along with David, Richard and as usual Steven, and Andy’s half match, we beat the 11 times previous league winners 5.5–2.5
A great result, so now on to next week’s game against Stirlingshire at Falkirk Carmuirs.

Steven Stewart                 won 3 and 2                 D. Dickson lost 3 and 2
David Lindsay                   won 2 and 1                 S. Watt lost 2 and 1
John McMahon                  lost 3 2                        D. Sibbald won 3 and 2
Chris Thursby                    won by 1 hole             L. Jenkins lost by 1 hole
Andy Campbell                 Halved match              P. Dorrian
Ross Hepburn                   won by 2 holes            O. Lavelle lost by 2 holes
Richard Bridges               won  by 1 hole             A. Farmer lost by 1 hole
Craig Bisset                     lost  by 7 and 6            C. Thomson won by 7 and 6
