Well, with our greens hollow- tined last week, a very necessary task to be carried out by our greens staff, and one which they tend to get a bit of stick over.
Some members stating that more sand should have been used, some say a finer sand and so on. All be it, the Donegal Seniors had a match to play on Sunday against a very strong Murvagh side who were governed by a very talented golfer in his own right. Mr Colm Campbell, also Vice Captain of Donegal Golf Club.
The hollow tining of the greens probably took away home advantage from the home side but the boss man with the Hat, Michael Hynes reassured the men in “na geansaithe fíon” that they were still favourites and indeed that’s how it turned out. At least for now, they have a very good 4 and a 1/2 matches to 1/2 a match. Return leg next Sunday in Murvagh.
DONEGAL JUNIOR SCRATCH MATCH PLAY.
Freddie Wilson stood on the fabulous Murvagh Links with his team one match away from being Donegal Champions.. Having Captained the winning side in 2018- the East Donegal Side came up just short on this occasion. Home advantage may have played a part but having witness some fantastic shot making from both teams the match could have gone either way. Well done Murvagh, worthy winners in the end.
In the Senior Scratch Match PLAY, Letterkenny Golf Club were to get the better of Rosapenna Golf Club.
