The fourth round of the qualifying stages in the Owen McDaid (Roe) Taxi & Mini Bus Hire Winter League took place last weekend.
The greens as usual are in excellent condition, running true and fast, but with some very difficult pins positions scoring was hard to come by. The best score of the weekend was 45 pts returned by the father and son combination of Jamie and Elliot Friel. Jamie (14) and Elliot (21) played some excellent golf to shoot a tremendous 45 pts which not alone secured the weekly prize but moved them into fourth place in the qualifying table. If Jamie and Elliot maintain this standard of golf they will easily qualify for the top qualifiers match play and will be hard to beat in the match play stages.
There will no Winter League this weekend as the Annual Aileen Hallinan Memorial Open Teams of 4 Scramble will be played on Saturday and Sunday. The funds raised from this competition will go to the Donegal Hospice.
