Club Notes – 3rd July 2012


Paul Gallagher playing off nine, was the winner of Saturday’s event the Farmer’s Home Open stableford which, like so many competitions lately, was greatly affected by the continuing wet spell of weather, leading to a much reduced Saturday entry with just over 100 players braving the elements.  Paul’s excellent return of 40 pts was good enough by a single point from early morning starter Paul Bogle (13) who in turn had two shots to spare from third placed Paul McGill (7) who always seems to play very well in adverse conditions. The gross prize went to Patrick Kennedy (2) with a four over par round of 32 points with Keith Patterson (5) taking fourth with 35 pts the same total as fifth placed Stephen McCay (6), the nines went to visiting player Andy Doherty (26) with 19 pts for the first nine and to Ben Corry (4) also with 19 pts for the second nine, Kevin O’Donnell from North West Golf Club took the visitors prize.  All the winners should note that this presentation takes place this Friday evening at 8.30pm.
