Regional Match v Northern England 2013
This match was held at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club on Thursday 13th June.
Both teams were warmly welcomed by host club Secretary Alasdair Miller and each attendee was provided with a goodie bag containing ball, ball marker, course guide and various leaflets extolling the virtues of the area.
Despite Alasdair's concerns regarding the effect the wet spring had had on his course everyone enjoyed their day.
At an excellent meal following play both teams were entertained to an impromptu cabaret by the host club Captain Mr Ian Beattie who was, perhaps thankfully, somewhat curtailed by the attendance of the Regional Secretary's wife.
Our thanks of course go to the club for their generosity and hospitality on the day.
