Club Notes – 25th July 2017


William Potts (27) was Saturdays winner of the Irish Road Motors Accident and Repair Centre stableford with an excellent return of 43pts, a fine opening nine of 22pts being undone somewhat with no further addition at the par 5 10th hole, but William rallied well to score a further 21pts over the last 8 holes to give him a one point win from the unlucky runner up Ciaran Doherty (9) who was just three over par for his round, a blank hole at the par 3 sixteenth hole possibly doing the damage although he was one of the very few to record a birdie on the final hole with the pin in a treacherous position. Third place went to Paul Houston (28) one of the early morning starters also with 42pts, fourth went to Brian Kelly (19) who has maintained his great run, with Charlie Patton (17) taking the final nett prize with 41 pts.  Caolan Crawford (5) took yet another gross prize with an excellent level par round which consisted of 4 birdies, 4 bogeys and 10 pars!  Jim Potts (18) was the over 60’s winner with 39pts with the nines going to Johnny McGonagle and to Stephen Conroy.
