Golfer of the Year – Kevin Lake had a great year and was the club’s most consistent performer in 2017.

Inniskilling Cup – Paul Wallace confounded the pundits by winning the Singles Matchplay competition as the club’s lowest handicapper. Tony McGeady made it a great final succumbing only on the 18th green.
