Last weekend the 22nd and 23rd our Gents played over 12 holes in a singles stableford and the kinder of the two days weather wise was Sunday with little or no wind after a very blustery Saturday. 41 played and we had some excellent scoring despite the soft conditions, aren’t those greens just fantastic. The winner with a fantastic 29 points was James Hartley for a prize of €60 and second with 28 points for a prize of €30 was Michael Tobin. We had two 2s, with both on the 4th from Jim Wellwood on Saturday and John Proctor on Sunday for a prize of €20 each.
Some of the ‘hardier’ gentlemen braved the Arctic conditions on Wednesday 19th last to play in the OPEN singles. We had some fantastic scoring over the 12 hole competition despite the bitter wintry windy conditions. Two players tied on 29 points with Ross Holden, playing off a competition reduced 5 handicap, winning on count-back. Ross was also the only winner of the two’s club.
The main winner over the weekend was Storm Ciara
with strong gale force winds and a lot of rain falling.
As I look out the window of the club house, snow is falling right now as a bonus!!!
Over 20 got out on Saturday BUT no play Sunday as it was unsafe.
Winner Ross Holden 26 points €40 voucher
2nd Enda Fogarty 24 points €20 voucher (countback)
We also had a pair of 2’s on holes where 2’s are rare – both get 15.
Jeff Lynch on the 2nd (Yes the 2nd, Barton cup looking good!)
Enda Fogarty on the 8th. (Another cup player??)
