A substantial contribution of around £3,000.00 was made from the entry fees of the Senior Stableford’s, Senior Open, CADS and the Buchan Seniors into the Club funds this year. Members of the Senior’s section continued to support all the Social events at the Club in good numbers.
The Buchan Seniors team had a good year, winning the league and also beating Cruden Bay in the final of the House of Commons Cup.
In the CADS the McDonald Seniors were a meritorious 5th, our best result in quite a number of years. The top performer in the CADS was Les Wilson with an excellent 30 points achieved.
Our annual match v Newburgh GC in the Ythan Challenge resulted in an emphatic victory for McDonald GC by some 48 points.
In the Clubs’ 3 Senior competitions Anne Bowman and Bob Murray won the Senior mixed pairs for the Paterson Trophy; Alex Bruce won the Senior Handicap Championship, claiming the Chadwick Trophy; and Ewan Stewart won the Senior Scratch Championship picking up the Ironside Trophy.
In our annual two leg matches against Meldrum House GC, the result was a win for McDonald GC over both legs. In an away match against Rosehearty GC, the result was another win for McDonald GC away from home. In yet another away match, unfortunately we lost to Turriff GC at Turriff.
The Seniors had a tremendous outing at Duff House Royal GC in Banff. Ken McDade played well and secured the Ali Michie Trophy.
