Club Notes – 30th October 2012


The heavy early afternoon rain on Sunday put paid to any chances of completing the matches on week 2 of The Sperrin Springs Winter Cup.  A few of the earlier matches had been completed but they must all be replayed next Sunday when hopefully conditions will be much better.  The shot of the day of the golf that was played went to Stephen McCay who aced the par three 16th hole playing a perfect 6 iron shot.

Saturday Stableford
Saturdays planned stableford event was also a victim of the weather with the early morning frost leaving the greens unplayable, and as a result the temporary winter greens were in use, this as expected led to a much smaller than expected entry with the competition reverting to a Saturday Sweep non-qualifying event. Off the 63 cards that were taken out Foncie McNally (15) led the field home with a good 42 pts winning on break of tie from Aidan Corry (10) with John J Duffy in third with 41 pts.

Next weeks event will be a 15 holes Stableford with the new winter handicap system in operation, further details of this are available from the club web site.

Thursday Club
Week four of the Thursday Club did proceed as planned with Brian Haughey the winner with 40pts over the 16 holes in play, club vice-Captain Ciaran Kelly was the runner up with 39pts with Gerry Quinn taking third place with 38pts.

The early leader in the Golfer of the Year stakes is Dennis Porter from Oliver McNally in second place.

The weekly Club Quiz will start back on Thursday night 7th November beginning at 10.00pm.

Acoustic Night
The club are hosting a brilliant Unplugged Acoustic Night this Friday night at 9.00pm with all the proceeds going to the Oscar Knox appeal.  Some of the town’s best live acts are kindly giving up their time to be there and it would be great to see a big turnout of club members to support this great cause.

Young Oscar has recently returned from Philadelphia after severe complications in his treatment and this have left his family with reported medical bills in excess off £400,000 so continued fundraising is essential.

“The Three Fivers” Bobby, Brian and Terry will be in the club on Sunday evening from 6-30pm- 8-30pm everyone very welcome!!
