Carlos O'Reilly was the winner of the Senior Boys Competition this week playing his usual consistent level of golf. Carlos has last four shots over the last few weeks and is now playing off 17.
In the Cadet’s Section, shot of the day went to Sean McBride whose 100 yard shot into the 15th came to rest within 2 inches of the hole. However that was not good enough to beat Caolan McFadden who won the overall competition with some very consistent play.
This year's Christmas Hamper stroke competition was played on Sunday the 27th November. Despite the time of year, the weather was quite benign and as usual, the course was in excellent condition. That made for some great scoring but nobody could keep apace with young Conor Hanna who returned a great score of 64 net to win by three shots. In second place was Anthony Gallagher who finished with a 67 net to beat Michael McColgan jnr into third place on BOT. Keith Lapsley won the gross prize, completing his round in 73 shots.
In Saturdays open singles Stableford, Liam Rogers returned a terrific score of 44 points to win by two shots from Cathal Sheridan. Hugh Kelly was third on 38 points while Stephen Henderson won the gross with 27 gross points.
