Snow wipes out Weekend Programme

The weekend snowfall put paid to any hopes of play at Strabane Golf Club on Saturday and Sunday.  Thankfully, some of the scheduled fixtures earlier in the week were able to proceed.  Tommy Forbes was in tremendous form in Week 8 of the Thursday Club racking up an outstanding 39 points to win the competition by a point from Frank McKay, with Jim Arbuckle a further point back in third place.

Current standings in the race for the coveted “Golfer of the Series” title are:

1. Jimmy Wasson         40 points

2. Denis Porter              23 points

3. Kevin Keegan           20 points

Last week’s JJ Teams event produced the following result:

1. F. McCay, B. McDonald, S. Taylor, J. Malcolm                      98 points

2. J. Arbuckle, M. Harkin, P. McGillian, J. Duncan                   98 points

3. K. Gallagher, C. McGrath, S. McFeeters, M. McColgan       98 points

The Sperrin Springs Winter Cup has reached the play-off stages, the draw for the first of the knockout rounds reading as follows:

Michael and Aidan Baldrick v Cathal McLaughlin and Noel O’Kane

Dermot Corry and Sean McInyre v Ciaran Duffy and Andy Connolly

Jim Potts and Declan Doherty can count themselves very unlucky to lose out on a place in the ‘semis’ despite finishing in joint second place in their group.

On the entertainment front, there are still a few tickets available for the Club Dinner which will be held in the clubhouse this Saturday (December 4), with the music provided by “Friends”.

Next Thursday (December 9) is the annual Christmas Quiz Night, commencing at 10.00pm. Members and visitors should note that a discounted double ticket is available for the Boxing Night and New Year’s Eve celebrations at the club.

Looking further ahead, the Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held at 8.00pm on Wednesday December 15.
