Hole No. 12: DIBBINSDALE
originally sponsored by T. Devlin Associates Terry chose this name because when he was courting in England , he often went down the Dibbinsdale Road. He was also responsible for initiating the system of hole sponsorship, and had first chance of naming a hole and, not surprisingly, he called No.12 Dibbinsdale The hole begins with a gully (often called Ted’s Gully, after Ted Day) then becomes a reasonably straight forward hole until it ends with a large green with hungry bunkers to the left and right. From the tee you can see the early stages of the pine hedge with the large poplar on the left.
In the early days there was a forward tee on the right just over the gully which could be used by
the men and by the ladies in the winter. As with most other holes at this stage in the trees were small and the course looked wide open.
