Club Notes – 9th December 2014


Michael Neeson and his playing partner Brian Kelly were the clear winners of the Leo Kavanagh Winter cup sponsored by Sperrin Springs. The final was played in the worst weather conditions of the competition and that made good golf extremely difficult. Shane McLaughlin and his partner Brian Forrester had played really well to reach the final stage but just didn’t adapt to the elements and went down by a clear cut five & four margin. Third place in the event went to Conal Cooke & Donal Cairns with Neil Alcock and Chris Timoney taking fourth overall.
The two week better-ball section was won by Joe & Ciaran Doherty with Nicky Wolfe & Mark Gillespie in second place, Franke Gallagher and Andrew Connolly took third place.

Saturday sweep
Fifty-six cards were taken out on Saturday for the 15 holes sweep with the win going to the ever improving Stephen Donaghey (16) with 36 pts, Michael Neeson warmed up for Sundays match with 34 pts Nett for second with Damian Carey in third also with 34 pts, Fred McGavigan again took the gross prize with a one over par round.

Thursday Club
Conditions were very favourable for week 14 of the Thursday club with Denis Porter again topping the leader board with a whopping 39 pts over the 15 holes in play which was only two over par for his round.
