A fundraiser competition for the club was played over the August Bank Holiday Weekend. The winning team was that of Ross Andrew, Tommy King and Eamonn Perry with a fine score of 102 points, just pipping the second placed team on countback. In second were Pat Conroy, Michael Rush and Tom Kearney. Michael and Tom also featured on the third placed team in their their other appearance in the competition, this time accompanied by Sean McLoughlin.
Countback was a popular method of deciding competitions in the club in the last while with the the three top scorers in the Mens 12 Hole Stableford held on Thursday the 9th all having 27 points. The winner was Paul Connolly, beating Owen Garvin and Michael Simon in to 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Well done to the men’s Connacht Shield team who beat neighbours Ballaghaderreen in a closely fought first round match. Credit is especially due to Patrick Egan and Terry Canning who secured the all important away win in Ballaghaderreen. The team is captained by Lorcan Egan and they now face Ballina in the second round.
The club’s Foursome Matchplay competition concluded during the week. Congratulations to Vincent Egan and Tom Kearney who edged out Patrick Egan and Padraig O’Connell in the final.
