Club Notes – 31st October 2017

Thirty-five teams lined up on Saturday in an end of season fundraising day for Caoimhe Harkin, with a most enjoyable day had by all playing in a team scramble format. Thankfully the weather was reasonable allowing the day to proceed with no hitches which was just reward for the tremendous efforts put in by the organising committee headed by Billy Doherty, many thanks go to the multitude of tee sponsors on the day, at least four at every hole on the course and to so many of the businesses near and far who made great contributions towards the amazing prizes that were up for grabs on the day.
The winners of the event were actually in the very first four-ball on the course just after 8am in the morning, others got extremely close but their total was never bettered, the winners were Marty Houston, Peter O’Connell, Dan Downey and Jonathan McGonagle who all left with new M2 Taylor-made drivers for their efforts! Their round started off very ordinarily for this particular format, opening with four straight pars but a fantastic run from the 5th hole where they recorded an Eagle 3, saw them birdie the following 5 holes and despite a bogey at the 17th hole they added a birdie 3 at the last hole to post an eyecatching 54.5. The unlucky runners up just one tenth of a shot behind on 54.6 were Fred McGavigan, Stephen Donaghey, Liam Callaghan and Kevin Neeson, this team had a remarkable start to their round managing to record birdie at the first seven holes! Third place went to Senan Roarty, Damian Roarty, Adrian McLaughlin and Shaun McGonagle with another great score of 55.4. The leading ladies team were Anne Sharkey, Donna Doherty, Adeline Gibson and Dympna Doherty, the prize for nearest the pin went to Ronnie Wiley with the longest drive going to Martin McDermott. Again many thanks to the members and visitors who gave great support to the competition the final total raised will be announced as soon as possible.

Thursday Club.
With better weather the sixth week of the Thursday club had its best entry to date with 58 players taking out cards, the winner in an extremely close finish was Joe Doherty with 34pts for the 15 holes in play, the runner up was Jimmy Henderson also with 34pts with Brian Brolly third again with 34pts, Paul McGill was this week’s gross winner.

Monday Club
This week’s Monday club saw 12 teams going to post, the winners were Dermott Corry, John McCallion, John White and Oliver McNally with 85.25 Nett, the runners up were Vincent Bradley, Patsy Wilson, Eric Reid and Seamus McPhilemy with 84.25 nett.

The three remaining players in “Last man standing” all progressed to week nine after they all selected Liverpool last weekend, this week’s fixtures would appear difficult to predict and we could well have a £1000 winner very soon!

This weeks’ £50 bar credit draw winner was Margaret Wolfe.

The Winter mats have now been introduced to save the course from any further damage after the recent inclement spell, all member and visitors must use them as directed with no exceptions.
