THE competition last weekend at Buncrana Golf Club was the Brennans Pharmacy Open Stableford and the weather conditions over the weekend were very difficult for golf.
However, the big hitting Matthew Diggins – who only acquired his handicap recently – made the best of the conditions on Sunday morning to shoot 41 points.

Buncrana Golf Club’s Donegal League Team are Final bound after a fantastic victory in Sunday’s Semi final against local rivals the North West.
Played in atrocious conditions yesterday the Wee Links powered to a superb victory. It was a tough away match, with three matches played in the North West and 2 matches at home.
This did not deter Fiachra O’Flaherty’s men. Under the guidance of Vice Captain Oliver Doherty the team powered home with superb victories in the 2 home ties, from Ferdia O’Flaherty and Ciaran McAteer who won 6 and 5 and Francis McGrory and Cormac Doherty who won 4 and 3.
This was followed up by some magnificent away performances from Buncrana players. Luke Bradley & Christopher McCallion led home the victory celebrations with a superb away win, winning 2 and 1 to clinch the tie, but there was no let up from the Buncrana men with the teams coming behind all on top form, with Brian Bradley and Paul McDaid all but assured of victory, being 3 holes up with 4 to play and Team Captain, Fiachra O’Flaherty and Caolan McLaughlin who were all Square with 3 holes left.
It was a magnificent all round performance and a well deserved Big Derby Victory.
