Sean Heslin was the winner of the 18 hole Stableford played on Sunday the 7th of July with 38 points. Well done to Michael Rush who continues his good run of form featuring among the prizes with 37 points.
Mention must be made of a very honourable golfer in this competition who had the winning score submitted until he realised he had made an error on the way round and requested his own disqualification, providing an example to some others of the spirit in which the game should be played.
The 12 hole competition on Thursday the 11th was won by Michael Reid.
