C.R.Y. Night Golf – Result

What a night!!!

Last night – Friday 5th November (Guy Fawkes night), Strabane Golf Club had some fireworks of their own.

70+ golfers played in the first Night Golf competition held in the north of Ireland.
We were blessed with a great night which helped make this a night to remember.

When James Patton approached our Captain Seamus Friel about having a golf competition at night time, Seamus thought he was mad!!  Anyway a few months  later, after a lot preparation, we played in in the dark.  Glow-in-the-dark balls were being launched into the air and golfers were having a brilliant time, we even had a few birdies!!!!

Along with all the craic there was a serious side to the night, this year the Captain’s chosen charity was C.R.Y., and all proceeds went to this worthy cause. Louise McShane from the charity was there last night selling tickets and adding to the total.  Even her daughter, got into the act by winning first prize 🙂  http://www.c-r-y.org.uk/ni.htm

3rd Sharon Haughey 14pts
