It was Halloween week and there were plenty of people visiting Dunfanaghy over the festive week. There was also good numbers on the course despite the windy conditions. We are coming to the end of the GOY competitions. The last competition is the Christmas Hamper on the 23rd of November.
That will be your last chance to qualify for the Grand Final. You can also have a chance of qualifying if you win the monthly medal in November or December. Well done to all the winners over the last week in the club. Well done to Mary on winning the last man standing and to Fergus who came a credible second. Paul is in the process of putting arrangements in place to start the next last man standing. We will keep you posted.
Next Monday the 10th November we are running an open Senior Ladies & Gents single stableford Competition (55 plus). We plan to run this competition on a monthly basis for the winter. The cost to members will be €5.00 and €10.00 to non-members. G.U.I vouchers will be given out as prizes. Please make every effort to take part and spread the word to all your golfing non-member friends.
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. The first match has been changed until the 15th of November 2013 where we are at home to Clochaneely Golf club.
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 who 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 2015. 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.
If anyone interested in joining the golf club, we have special offers in place at the moment. All details can be viewed on our website or contacting the clubhouse and speaking to Mary or Ruth. Anyone joining now will get the rest of 2014 free of charge.

There was no separating the joint winners last week with Tom Mc Clintock and Conor Hanna going toe to toe over four playoff holes with them both paring each hole, in the end it was decided to shake hands and call it a tie. In the cadet section a much improved display of putting from Ben King ultimately led to victory with Rory Kelly getting the shot of the day title with a great shot into the 16th green.Tags:
