Captain’s/Lady Captain’s Prize to the Juniors.
On Wednesday 15th August, 30 of the club’s most promising young golfers turned up to compete in the Captain’s/Lady Captain’s Prize to the juniors.
Captain Peter and Lady Captain Janice warmly welcomed all the competitors and put up a beautiful array of prizes. They also provided a large bag of goodies for the boys and girls to enjoy on their way around the course.
The quality of golf in all sections was exceptional. In the senior boys section, both James Sweeney and Luke Kelly shot five over par while Conor Hanna won the gross on three over par. However, in the main event, nobody could catch Max Roarty who had a fantastic score of 44 points.
In the girls section, Una Burke won while Aimee Bonar finished second.
In the intermediate boys section, Lucas Wood was the clear winner, showing some excellent skills. Lucas is certainly one to keep an eye on for the future. Conor McColgan was second while Ryan McCallion was third.
Finally, in the Cadet’s section, no one could keep up with Jack Hanna who won by a clear margin from Tadhg Burke in second and Aidan McFadden in third.
This was a fantastic event for all the boys and girls and shows that the junior section in the club is going from strength to strength.
Thanks to all those who helped out last Wednesday and to the staff at the club who, as always, looked after the kids so well.

Dunfanaghy Juniors Overcome Ballyliffin in Fred Daly
The Dunfanaghy junior boys team produced a tremendous display of golf against Ballyliffin on Sunday afternoon, winning 7-0, to progress to the quarter finals of the Fred Daly Plate. The standard of golf on display was excellent, with a number of matches recording sub-par scores.
Many thanks to the large number of members who came out to support the boys, led by Club Captain Peter Sullivan. The support was much appreciated by this talented next generation of Dunfanaghy golfers.
