Saturday 25th March - Ladies & Gents Open Singles Stableford
Sunday 26th March - Victor Fiorentini Cup Open Gents Singles
The sun made a brief, but very welcome, appearance on Saturday last
and enabled the Captain’s Drive-In to go ahead at Greencastle.
Captain Brian McRory, Lady Captain Eileen B Farren, President John
Lynch and Lady President Margaret O’Kane all drove spectacularly
down the first to get the year off to the perfect start.
The Scramble which followed was dominated by local teams and won by
the established fourball of Gerry McQuillan, Jimmy, Antoinette and
Niamh Hegarty with a score of 55 and 7/8. Runners-up Sean Doherty,
Hugh O’Donnell, Shaun Gillespie and Tony McGeady scored a very
creditable 56 and ¼. Third prize was won by Billy Harley, Ciaran
Kelly, Danny McCartney and Paddy Monagle with a score of 56 and 5/8
while 4th place was claimed by D McDermott, A Orr, K Lake and G
Harvey on the same score.
Sunday’s competition was reduced to 17 holes due to a new water
feature appearing on the 7th green. Stephen Corbett coped best with
the interruption to record his first victory in some years with an
excellent score of 39 points. Full results were:
17 Holes Singles Stableford, Sunday 19 March
1st Stephen Corbett (14) 39;
2nd Neil Guckian (8) 37;
3rd Jason McLaughlin (5) 35;
Gross Eoin O’Doherty (8) 27;
1st 9 Maeliosa Barr (22) 17;
2nd 9 Sean Doherty (13) 19.
The Bigger and Inniskilling Cups were drawn for at the weekend and
some interesting ties were thrown up for the club’s two big
Matchplay events. Preliminary round matches are to be played before
the end of April.
Next weekend’s golf includes a Ladies and Gents Open Singles
Stableford on Saturday and the Victor Fiorentini Open Gents Singles
