Competition Results
The curtain came down on Greencastle’s Open Week on Sunday 18th June with the Bishop’s Gate Hotel sponsoring the prizes. On another day of good scoring the contest was between youthful exuberance and years of experience. In the event it was young Eoin O’Doherty who got the upper hand from seasoned campaigner Arthur Bell. While Eoin’s four birdies were enough to claim the top prize, Arthur could claim to have the Shot of the Week with an ace at the Heather Bank. Full results were:
