It has been another great week of weather in Dunfanaghy. Most people on the course over the last week have been fortunate to be playing in summer conditions and the course is in excellent condition.
There was a great turnout for the Stewart Bam GOY competition last Sunday. The Top Twenty GOY competition is building momentum with every golfer trying to qualify for the end of year competition. Well done to the prize winners. The Club wishes St. Michaels the best of luck this Sunday in the county football quarter Final against Dungloe. All roads lead to Ballybofey on Sunday evening. Best of luck to the Reserves who play on Saturday Evening.
The Men’s Captain –v- Presidents competition is on Saturday 25th of October 2014. This will be run in a 4BBB format and there is a sign on sheet on the notice board for anyone wishing to take part. All names need to be on the sign on sheet before Thursday the 23rd of October 2014. The time sheet is booked from 12.08am to 13.04pm to accommodate this competition. This competition was a great success in years gone by. We have moved it to the Halloween weekend because there was so much golf happening in August. Let’s see if we can get this competition up and running again and enjoy the evening in the clubhouse after the golf.
I can confirm that there is a sheet regarding anyone interested in the Gaeltacht league is now on the notice board. Please make sure to put your name and contact details on the sheet if you are interested in playing the league this winter. Sorry about the delay.
We are started sociable evenings on the Friday evenings in the clubhouse again. The clubhouse will open from 4pm from this Friday onwards. There will be free bites for anyone that comes to the clubhouse on the Friday evenings. What better way to start the weekend.
The Winter Open 4BBB competition has just started on the 1st of October. This competition is great because you can play any day of the week, with whoever you want and as many times as you want until you qualify. There are four monthly winners each month who go forward to the Grand Final on the 21st of June 2014. The first three pairs qualify automatically and then the fourth pair will be the best recorded score by a 4BBB made up of club members each month. The 4BBB can be any combination and it would be great to see mixed pairs taking part as a follow on from the great competition ran by John and Cheryl Chambers this summer. All details of the competition can be seen on posters displayed in the clubhouse.

Juvenile Notes; It was a case of normal service restored on Saturday last with James Sweeney very steady Golf to win the Juvenile competition from Conor Hanna who edged out Carlos on BOT. In the Cadet Section Oisin Cannon edged out Andy Ward who had the shot of the day on the 16th. Another graduation from the Cadets is getting close.
