Tony has only been golfing for 49 years, so he wasn’t playing out of turn!
With his confidence up, he then won the Sunday Members in Portsalon with a superb score of 45 points – a fine start to 2020.
Congratulations to Séana McCarron, Lisfannon, Fahan, Co Donegal who was the winner of the first prize in the Portsalon Golf Club Development Draw on Saturday night.
She is now the proud owner of a 2020 Hyundai Tucson; happy and safe motoring to you, Séana.
Thanks to each and every person that bought a ticket for the draw and also special thanks to those members that sold tickets and worked hard to ensure the success of the draw for the future of their golf club.
