Club Notes – 7th October 2014

POPULAR CAPTAINS OUTING WINNER
Captains Outing

Stephen Alexander (20) was the very popular winner of last Saturday’s Captains outing to Greencastle Golf Club, with an excellent return of 43 pts to head the fields of 131 entrants. A very modest total of 17 pts from the Sion man on the opening nine, was definitely not a sign of things to come as he found his best form ever on the back nine shooting level par for the next eight holes and despite a double bogey five at the final hole he had amassed an eye catching 26 pts for the inward nine for a total that was never likely to be matched.
The runner up was club secretary, Brian O’Kane (20), with a fine score of 41 pts that would have been good enough on most days, third place went to Willie Irvine (16) with a solid 40 pts with the very much in form John McMenamin in fourth also with 40 pts, Rory McColgan (13) took fifth, another with 40 pts, with the gross going to Fred McGavigan who was round in one over par. The Captain Senan thanked everyone who had help organize his outing, everyone who travelled to play especially in such large numbers and special thanks to the Sponsors- The Herald Newspaper, The Sports Centre and Caldwell Motor Factors and special praise for Greencastle Golf club for the use of their beautifully presented course and their excellent hospitality on the day.

For those members who could not make the day away there was a qualifying club sweep which was won by Paul Kavanagh (20) with 39 pts, Aidan Langan (19) was the runner up with 37pts with Noel O’Kane third with 36 pts the gross went to Dermott Corry (12).
