A busy weekend of golf began on Friday last with the Inner Wheel
Charity Open for Ladies and Gents. Magdalene McDermott was the
popular winner of the Ladies event with visitor Deirdre O’Connor
taking the runner-up spot and Pauline Casey winning the Gross prize.
In the Gents section Jimmy Hegarty led the way with visitor Delwyn
Montgomery second and Atholl Stewart third.
A break of tie was required in Saturday’s Ladies and Gents Open with
David Gough getting the verdict over last year’s Captain Brian
McRory. Jason McLaughlin continued his pursuit of a Scratch handicap
with a flawless round of four under par for third place. Visiting
golfers were again among the prizewinners with Stephen Martin from
Foyle winning the Gross and Pascal Gallanagh, Buncrana, winning the
Ladies section. Shot of the Day was claimed by Damian Martin with an
ace at the par 3 Heather Bank. Full results were as follows:
Saturday 21st April - Ladies and Gents Open Singles Stableford
1st David Gough (20) 42;
2nd Brian McRory (21) 42;
3rd Jason McLaughlin (3) 40;
Gross Stephen Martin (2) 37;
1st 9 Liam Clarke (14) 22;
2nd 9 Damian Martin (26) 23;
Ladies 1st Pascal Gallanagh (20) 34.
Sunday’s traditional V Par competition attracted the biggest entry
of the weekend and required a three-way break of tie. This matchplay
competition against the course requires a positive attitude and all
three of those on the winning score certainly displayed that
quality. Declan McBay took the honours by virtue of a better finish
from Paul McCole and Billy Guthrie. Full results were:
Sunday 22nd April - Victory Cup Gents Open Singles V Par
1st Declan McBay (15) 6 up;
2nd Paul McCole (6) 6 up;
3rd Billy Guthrie (20) 6 up;
Gross Willie Havlin (5) 4 down;
1st 9 Gerard McCallion (20) 1 up;
2nd 9 Tom Agnew (16) 3 up.
