2017 Dalrymple Cup Winners
Congratulatuions to Newton Stewart on Retaining the Dalrymple Cup. The final was a cagey affair with Newton Stewart initially taking the initiative before Stranraer put a surge on with a few holes to go to get within one hole of the winning post but Newton Stewart held their nerve and pushed again to win the holes they needed to make it all square in matches and tied on countback. And with the light fading due to the delayed started this meant a playoff with all teams playing an extra hole until there was an aggregate winner. After all four pairs had played the first hole Newton Stewart had their noses in front and won the trophyThe team are pictured below. From left to right: F.Hughes, D.Brodie, W.Orr Jnr.
