It was Lady Captain’s week and what a great week we have had on the course and in the clubhouse.
There was the Lady and Gent’s Captain’s prizes to the Juveniles on Thursday. There were 40 juveniles taking part in the competitions and there was some great scoring.
Well done to one and all who took part. And thanks to all the parents that assisted on the evening. Then we had the scramble on Friday and there was a great turnout of both young and old on a beautiful evening. Mal Johnson was ready with the barbeque when the golfers were finished. And the burgers were so good most people had two. Well done Mal.
Then on Saturday it was Cheryl’s Lady Captain’s prize day here at the club and on behalf of the Gent’s committee I would like to congratulate Cheryl on a most enjoyable sequence of competitions over the past week. Lady Captain’s Day was a tremendous success and a fitting reward for her tremendous work on behalf of the club throughout the year. Congratulations also to Deborah Moore on winning this prestigious event at the very first attempt. There was a huge turnout on the day and the weather was fantastic. We were very lucky as it had rained heavily in neighbouring towns. The attention to detail by Cheryl was second to none and the clubhouse looked fabulous. The food was fantastic and the music during the day and night kept everyone entertained.

Monday sees the start of Captain’s week and once again on behalf of all our members I would like to wish Captain Gerald every success. During his tenure as Captain we have witnessed growth in all aspects of life here at the club. The course is in the best shape it has ever been, membership is up quite substantially, and in the clubhouse the bar and kitchen are proving extremely popular with members and visitors alike. All of this increased activity has had a very positive effect on our finances, so if this momentum can be maintained we are on track for a very successful year. The feel good factor which currently exists within the club can be attributed in no small measure to the leadership shown by our Captain. His drive, energy and attention to detail are absolutely incredible while his “can do” attitude seems to bring out the best in those around him. It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked alongside such an enthusiastic, dedicated and forward thinking Captain so let us all give him the support he so richly deserves up to and including his big day on Saturday. Lets hope the weather is as kind to Gerald during the week and especially next Saturday. The full list of competitions for the week is listed below. Let’s try and play as many of the competitions during the week and visit the clubhouse as there should be a great atmosphere in the clubhouse all week.

What a busy week it has been for the juvenile members. It started with the main event of the year the Captains Prize and a large turnout taking to the fairways. The best golf was played by Kyle Mc Garvey who followed up last years major win in the Presidents Prize to lift the Captains Prize with a little bit to spare. Two majors in two years, Kyle is now chasing Rory. In second place was James Sweeney with Conor Gallagher filling third place. In the Cadet section Ben Smyth led the way with Hugh Burke in second and Ciaran Moore fresh from his recent success in the Foyle Cup taking third.
Sarah Sweeney came out on top in the Girls section with Danielle Mullan second and Rachael Dolan third. It was great to see many girls out on the course.
The normal Saturday morning competition was a very close affair with a 2 hole play off need to decide the winner with James Sweeney just getting the better of Conor Hanna. In the Cadets Eoin Bonner played great golf to take first from Ben Smyth.
There will be no competition next Saturday morning due the Captains Prize taking place, we will contact members re the next competition date.Tags:
