Last Saturday at Otway, Noel Kiernan’s Captain’s day went off with military precision, with members battling against some tough windy conditions and some nasty pin placements in search of the elusive captain’s prize. With excuses flying all over the place, it was the cool head and steady hand that got local man Daniel Mattewson over the line to claim the big prize with 40 stableford points, impressive in the conditions. Daniel just pipped another ‘local’ Fr Martin Collum into second place with 38 pts on BoT from Dave Hughes who claimed 3rd spot. Arthur Morisson won the gross, with the nines going to Paul Murray and Martin Duffy. Dan Canning won the longest drive, with Paddy Lynch getting nearest the pin. The visitors prize went to Francie McFadden, and the juveniles was won by Marcus McClafferty, just ahead of Aoife Gallagher in second. First for the ladies was Flo McGivern who just pipped Angela Harvey into second spot on BoT. Congratulations to all the winners, and to Noel and Sharon, and the young Kiernans, for the fine food presented to the weary participants after their efforts, and the entertainment into the night. Congratulations also to the Donegal League team on their 3 and a half matches at home in their first leg match against Bundoran, and best wishes to the team in the away leg. This Sunday it’s back to normal competition for members in the Franklin Cup, a singles stableford format. Before that, the club’s annual fundraising ‘Night at the Races’ takes place in John T’s Beachcomber Bar when all members and ‘Friends of Otway’ are urged to come along and support the night, enjoy the craic, and maybe even win a few pound !
