CLOUGHANEELY Golf Club’s Jimmy Bruen team have reached the last eight in Ulster and booked their spot in the quarter final.
This is a massive achievement for a small nine-hole club.
On a wet Sunday afternoon in Ballyconnell, Cloughaneely met a very strong Ballycastle GC from Co. Antrim.
A very good win for Paul Doherty and Peadar Curran 5&3. The steady Sean O Gallchoir and Chris McCallion produced the goods to win two up.
Both the away teams were defeated. This left it to Mark McGinley and Danny McNulty who were all square playing 18 with the score 2-2.
A great putt by Mark secured the win and the 3-2 victory.
Cloughaneely GC’s Over 50s team were narrowly defeated 3-2 last Sunday in very wet conditions. Well done to all the lads for representing the golf club.
The Minor League team had a narrow win over Cruit Island 3-2. The home draw proved crucial to Cloughaneely. Cruit won both their home games. This meant Cloughaneely had to win all three games.
A good win for Joe ‘GAA’ McGarvey and John Murphy 3&2. Shaun McGarvey and Dan Doohan were 1up playing 18 and with Cruit in for par it was Dan Doohan that parred the 18th to secure the win.
Patsy McVicar and Stephen McCafferty had a great 2&1 win meaning a 3-2 win overall.
