CT takes Final Event

The McHugh Oils Medal brought to a close the regular season at Strabane Golf Club on Saturday last.  Despite a stiff easterly breeze which swept across the course throughout the day, scoring was of the highest quality.  Best round of the day was Chris Timoney’s superb nett 63, his winning effort giving him a one shot advantage over runner-up Barry Whyte.  John Brolly carded a nett 65 to finish in third place while Conal Cooke dropped only one shot to par in securing the gross prize with an excellent 70.  Mark McCrea continued in his current rich vein of form by taking the Category One award with a nett 66.  The Category Two prize went to Paul McConway with a 68 nett, with Martin McCallion topping Category Three with a nett 66.  Adrian McLaughlin and Jim Callaghan had the best first and second nines respectively.

As summer golf ends, so the winter season gets under way.  The Monday JJ Teams event kicked off last week and produced the following result.

1. D. Porter, M. Arnold, J. Wasson, H. Casey                        94 points

2. K. Gallagher, S. McFeeters, J. Douglas, L. Doherty          92 points

Week One of the Thursday Club was won by Adrian McGonagle, his fine 40 point return getting him home by a point from Ronnie Wiley.  Frankie Gallagher marked his return to the game by compiling an impressive 39 points to finish third.

In ladies’ golf, the Final Day Scramble was won by the trio of Mandy Coyne, Lisa Patton and Mary Casey, their 26 point total giving them a point to spare over Norma Brogan, Maeve Corry and Lorna Duffy.  In third place, and also on 26 points, were Catherine Neeson, Loretta Coyne and Noreen McNally.

Congratulations to Mandy Coyne whose consistently high performances over the summer have deservedly earned her the prestigious “Golfer of the Year” accolade.

 Last week’s bridge competition was won by Anna O’Doherty, with Margaret Bonnar in second place.

Tickets for the annual Club Dinner which will be held on Saturday October 30 are available in the clubhouse.
