CHRISTMAS SCRAMBLE – The day after St Stephen’s means one thing in Boyle Golf Club, the annual Christmas Scramble. Well done to all those who turned in some less than ideal weather. The winning team was that of Lorcan Egan, Michael Simon and Gabriel Lavin.Second prize went to Mary Brogan, David Wynne and Lochlainn Conboy. Congratulations especially to Mary on her first trip to the prizes table in the club.

The other event of the festive season in the club is the Bonanza competition. Due to a prolonged cold spell before Christmas it was postponed several times and eventually played as a 9 hole Stableford re-entry in the week between Christmas and the New Year. 1st David Wynne 21 points, 2nd Terry Canning 21, 3rd Gerry Nerney 18. Nearest the Pin – Gerry Nerney, Longest Drive – Terry Canning. The 2s club was shared between Mark Whelan, Gerry Nerney and Terry Canning. The prizes were presented in the clubhouse on the 8th of January by our new Men’s Captain, Liam Whyte.

The final of this competition saw Terry Canning take on Martin Sweeney. This is a very sought over prize within the club having been competed for in annual basis since the 1930s. Both men had exhibited periods of good form in 2022 with some thinking Terry’s experience may win out, but Martin pulled off a great win and the King-Harmon Cup will be crossing the county boundary to reside in Geevagh for the next 12 months.
