Monday Open
This weeks Monday Open saw some remarkable scoring from a troop of the lower handicap players, obviously relishing the softer conditions on the greens, after a count back Ciaran Doherty (11) was declared the winner with a tremendous total of 44 pts just denying Keith Patterson (6) who got round in two under gross to also post 44 pts, third went to Peter Doherty (6) who was also level par in returning 42 pts, the gross went to Ronan Foley (5) with 36 gross pts.
