We have had a great Open Week with large crowds on the course each day.
The weather had been very kind to us up until Saturday.
Unfortunately the weather was not kind to the golfers on Saturday or Sunday.
The Lady Captain and Men’s Captain would like to thank all our members who participated in Open Week and also all the visitors that took part in competitions at the club during Open Week.
We had a number of new beginners in the prizes during open week which was great to see.
It is important that we all make an effort to get all our new beginners out on the course.
Well done to all the prize winners and again I would like to thank all our sponsors who are as follows:-
Tennants Ireland, Frank and Nora Crumlish, Seamus mc Monagle (Club Professional), Roarty Development, The Oyster Bar, Mabel Gillespie and family, Eugene and Geraldine Magee, Starcrest Seafoods, Lynas Foods, Moores Garage, Arnolds Hotel, Sigma Wireless, Molly’s Bar, Patrick and Pauline Hunter. Please make sure you support all our sponsors.
This week is Lady Captain’s Week. Let’s hope all members support Cheryl this coming week. She has put in great work during her year to date and is extremely popular with all the members. Make sure you put your name down for her Captain’s prize in plenty of time as the time sheet will fill very quickly.
The scrambles will start back again this Friday. As it is Lady’s Captain’s weekend, the scramble will be 18 holes. You have to register before 4pm on Friday with the Shotgun Start at 4.30pm.

There is a singles competition this Wednesday, Lady’s Captain’s prize for the men on Saturday and another singles competition on Wednesday Week.
As everyone who has been in the clubhouse over the weekend would have seen posters up which mention the Ryder cup Weekend. This will be launched on the Caravaner’s weekend. You have been warned to make sure to have the 26th-28th of September free as it promises to be a great weekend. All details will be announced on the Caravanner’s weekend.
Dunfanaghy Ladies Notes;
75 ladies took advantage of the fine weather for what was to be the last ladies’ competition of Open Week on Tuesday 29th July. A singles stableford competition, sponsored by the Lady Vice Captain Mabel Gillespie and her husband James, Margaret Roarty (24) took the top prize with 38 points. Diana Coburn (20) was second with a better back nine from Maragaret McKee (19) and 37 points. Siobhan Bogues (12) had 25 gross points to claim the gross prize. Laura McElhinney (36) won the first prize of her golfing career, having only received her handicap the previous day. She had 21 points on the first nine. Sandra McGinley (24) continued her run of consistent play with 19 points on the second nine. Roisin Ni Chuireain (14) won the Visitors’ Prize with 33 points. Hazel Russell was Nearest the Pin at the second hole and Cheryl Chambers had the Longest Drive at the eighteenth. Ann Smith won the Secret Hole by having a par on the third. Patricia McBrien was the only person to have a 2, which she did at the ninth hole. CSS was 70 (35 points). The 14 hole competition, scheduled for Saturday 2nd August, and to be sponsored by Pauline Hunter, was cancelled due to the inclement weather conditions.
What a busy week it was for the Juvenile members also, with a first ever Charity Classic on Friday evening which drew a big crowd and all seemed to enjoy this change of format from the normal competition. The winners on the day were the team of Edward O Reilly, Max Roarty and Eoin Bonner who just got the better of Conal Bonar, James Marriot and Ben King on BOT. Normal service returned on Saturday and again a big attendance led to a very close race for the podium with James Marriot edging out Ben Smyth and his cousin James Wilson to win the cadet section and in the main section Luke Kelly got the better of Conor Hanna with Tom Mc Clintock in third place.
This week sees the big one in the Captain’s Prize taking place on Thursday evening at 5pm sharp for both boys and girls. We would ask as many parents as possible to turn up to give a hand on this busy evening.Tags:
