Boyle golf club news

INTERCLUBS – Well done to our Jack O’Sullivan team, captained by Lochlainn Conboy who had a great win against Co Sligo Golf Club (Rosses Point) on Saturday the 29th in the first round of the Jack O’Sullivan Tournament. Boyle were very much the underdogs here given the facts that Rosses Point have a significantly larger playing membership and for this match they also had home advantage, with 3 of the games to played on their course and just 2 in Boyle. The pairings of Lochlainn Conboy with Jason Beirne and Vincent Egan with Liam Whyte won both games in Boyle, which meant that taking one of the 3 games in Rosses Point would secure a win for Boyle. Lee McKillen and Tony Garvin were level with their opponents going down the 18th in Rosses Point but lost out in a “sudden death” play off afterwards. Communication earlier on from Rosses Point had told us that we were 3 holes down in our other 2 games at one point, so a win seemed unlikely. However both Boyle pairings had mounted strong fightbacks and we received word that Brendan Gaffney and Pat Brogan had beaten their opponents on the 18th, thus securing the win for Boyle. It subsequently turned out that the remaining Boyle pairing of Charlie O’Donnell and Ciaran Beirne had been leading their opponents by 1 hole going down the 18th when they were called in ( as the overall result had been decided). Well done to the team who take on the winners of Strandhill versus Strokestown in the next round.

FIXTURES – There will be a Club Fundraiser team event over the Bank Holiday weekend, format to follow during the week.
