STRABANE HOSTS ULSTER SENIOR CUP QUALIFYING EVENT

For the second time in four years Strabane Golf Club was chosen to be one of the eight Ulster Qualifying venues and once again the course was turned out in pristine condition with many golfers paying special compliments to the fantastic condition of the greens on the day. In a blustery and sometimes showery day good scoring was tough to say the least, Strabane were out in the first match of the day and after losing a few senior players were not really expected to qualify in the senior cup company they found themselves in, however the local lads rallied well and stuck at the task in hand to make the top four in a nail biting conclusion, North west G.C almost taking the final spot. The top Qualifiers
On a brilliant 298 were Rosapenna G.C with Enda and Patrick Kennedy in their ranks they used their vast course knowledge to great advantage, next were City of Derry followed by Portstewart with the local Strabane side fourth on 308. The next round is matchplay at Strabane on Sun 30th June where Rosapenna will play Strabane and City of Derry will take on Portstewart with the two winners meeting in the afternoon final.

HEAVY RAIN STOPS PLAY

 

Saturdays highlight event the Mark James Open fell victim to the

Continuing poor summer weather with lashing rain making it impossible for play to proceed and the competition was abandoned for the day just after lunchtime. This event will now be played as part of Open Week on Friday 12th July.

Thursdays rescheduled competition the Foothill’s Restaurant barely survived the torrents too with the downpours hitting the course just after 6pm leaving it almost impossible for play to continue, but continue it did with a few brave souls battling the elements and completing their rounds .The winner was one of the mornings early starters Brian Brolly (11) who has been showing a steady improvement in form this season and his 40 pts was good enough on break of tie from Mark Bradley (18) now playing out of Letterkenny G.C who was one of the evenings late finishers, third went to Conor Sharkey (7) with a very steady 39 pts with the Gross going to Caolan Crawford (7) with 32 gross pts, the C.S.S for this event was 70-35 pts which reflected how difficult the conditions were.

Shamrocks team Classic

The Shamrocks Teams classic was able to proceed on Sunday despite the flooding of the course on the previous day the greens were able to be cut and the course presented in amazing condition considering what it had endured in the previous days, much praise again to our magnificent Greens staff for this.

The winners were in the penultimate Fourball of the day returning an excellent 102 pts were Denis Porter, Declan McDonnell, Kevin Keegan and Michael Neeson, the runners up were the long time leaders Caolan Crawford, Eoin O’Neill, Paul Houston and Johnny Gallagher with 99 pts, with third going to Aiden Corry, Oliver Creswell, Liam mcDevitt and John Doherty with 97pts.

The longest drive at the 18th hole went to Caolan Crawford.

In the junior singles Patrick McGranaghan was the winner with Shaun McCall ion the runner up.

TOPAZ MONDAY OPEN

The Monday Opens returned on Monday past and will now continue until the end of August, this week’s event was kindly sponsored by Topaz.

Our Ulster Cup team suffered a heavy defeat at Cairndu G.G going down by 7 matches to nil, the result was not as clear cut as the score line would suggest with Two matches losing at the last and two at the 17th, the return leg is this Sunday.

ENDA TAKES 10TH STRABANE SCRATCH CUP.

 

Local golfing circles were again dominated by Enda Kennedy who for the 10th time took the Strabane Golf Club Scratch cup which was kindly sponsored by Local Company Frylite LTD.

As in recent years again the weather was a major factor as a strong north west wind coupled with heavy prolonged showers for most of the day made good scoring almost impossible and if it had not been for the diligence of the organising committee sweeping the water of greens it is somewhat doubtful weather play could have continued with the deluge of water falling persistently  upon it .

There was however a great renaissance in this years Scratch cup with Damian mcGranaghan and his hard working committee going all out top attract a top field in both the Senior and junior sections with a lot of great prizes being offered on the day, a total of 98  entries were received with only about 10 golfers not showing due to the conditions which still made the final entry of 88 the best in recent years.

Enda Kennedy had gone out in the final fourball in round one in strong company which include City of Derry’s Kealan Quigg who has been in sparkling form at his home course in recent weeks  like Enda winning a nett competition recently with his gross score of seven under par, and it was the Derry man who led after round one with the best score of the day a one over par 70 which was one shot ahead of the Strabane man Kennedy who this year was playing out of Rosapenna Golf club. however with the weather deteriorating even further at the beginning of the second round Quigg’s challenge seemed to wane somewhat and he would eventually sign for a nine over 78. By the 10th hole Kennedy had built a two shot lead and although Lindsay and Morris kept their challenge going awaiting any major mistakes from the experienced Strabane man, an uncharacteristic bogey six looked to have opened the door for Belvoir Park scratch player Andrew Morris who with par at the 17th hole lay only one shot adrift playing the last, Kennedy went slightly long at the last leaving an awkward chip from the back left apron and with Morris nicely on the green with a 20 foot attempt to come for birdie nothing was decided, Kennedy was first to play and his deft chip stayed four feet above the hole, Morris feeling he would need to hole his putt to force a playoff went too strong narrowly missing the cup but rolled on some 10 feet downhill, unfortunately for him he missed the return leaving Enda to tidy up for par to eventually win by two on 146  and record an historic 23rd Scratch cup win of his golfing career. James Lindsay with par at the last finished as the runner up on break of tie from Andrew Morris with Kealan Quigg next also with the same total of 148

In the Junior section of the Frylite event Freddie Patterson took the plaudits with a great total off 157 with Conor Sharkey the runner up on 160. The Captain thanked the Sponsor Mr Eamon mcCay for his continued invaluable support and paid great tribute to Damian mcGranaghan, Peter Doherty and David McGrath for their superb organisation and paid special mention to Paul Mc Fadden and his Greens staff for presenting the course in such great condition despite the recent inclement weather and many players agreed with these sentiments adding the the greens are probably the best in Ireland at present.

Full Results can be found on the SGC scratch cup facebook page or on the clubs website.

 

SPORTS CENTRE OPEN

Saturdays event was the Sports Centre Open highly regarded as one of the clubs leading competitions .Conditions were better than Sunday but were still extremely tough with none of the 185 competitors managing to break par on the day from the Blue Markers. The winner was Patsy McHugh (16) who won on break of tie with an excellent 69 Nett just taking the honours from runner up Mark Neely (12) and Oliver Creswell (10) who finished on the same total. Martin Rouse (11) finished in 4th with 70 Nett with Junior player Eoin O’Neill (10) in 5th also with 70 Nett. The Categories went to Patrick mcCrossan (8) 71 Nett,Maurice Doherty (17) 70 Nett and to Joe Kennedy( 25) also with 70 Nett, the gross went to Patrick Kennedy(1) with a six over 75.

 

LADIES GOLF

Well done to the ladies Minor Cup team captained by Rosemary Wilson who are through to the next round of that event with n excellent win over City of Derry Ladies last week securing the two matches they needed for victory in the away leg.

The latest Ladies competition was the McMillan Cancer charity event which was won by Olive Reid(30) with an excellent 40 pts, category one went to Maeve Corry (23) with 38 pts with Category two went to Catherine Connolly (27) with 37 pts.

The latest mixed foursomes event went to Anne Sharkey and Ronnie Wiley with 29 pts, the runners up were Norma Brogan and Eddie Patton with 29pts also.
