The Letterkenny Hospitals Golf Society visited the beautiful Cruit Island Golf Club on Wednesday last, where a super back-nine which yielded 25 Stableford points, and included three birdies on the 12th, 14th and 15th saw Mickey Ferry return an excellent winning score of 42 points to take the victory.
Following a steady front-nine of 17 points, Mickey found his best form second time round the tricky nine hole course, to add 25 points for a four point win.
