Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 9th August 2011

Vice-captain, Pat Connaghan teamed up with Willie Quinn to win this year’s Spring Foursomes title after a hard-fought battle with Hughie Moore and P.J. Gallagher. It always looked a tough one to call and after 18 holes of this every-other-shot matchplay contest, the pairings could not be separated. On it went, with the eventual victors winning on the 20th hole. For both golfers, it’s their first win in this format and they will prove a difficult pairing to dethrone in 2012.
John McBride continues to excel, winning the latest Wednesday Open by three points from Fr. Adrian Gavigan in second. The former garda birdied the 2nd following fine approach play and ten pars and a birdie later (on 12), there could be no doubt about the merits of his success.

Joseph Shovlin hits a ball like no other, a hammer blow that Thor would appreciate. Added to this prowess is guile around the greens and he demonstrated his all-round talent on Sunday during the Killybegs Golf society stableford. Five pars on the outward nine laid a fine foundation for a good score, but where others wilted on the return, Joseph stepped up a gear, birdying 10 and parring five other holes for a worthy success.

The fourball scramble last Monday week saw Conor Sharkey, Connell Cooke, Lauren Patton and Lisa Patton record 11 birdies and an eagle on 10 en route to a tally of 55.8. The scoring was so good that Harold Reid’s team’s ten birdies couldn’t even get them on the podium!

Our over-50s senior team under the captaincy of James Quinn negotiated the semi-final of the county matchplay, defeating Bundoran over two legs. Four pairings were victorious, while the fifth were called in, as the result was not in doubt. It was a fine performance and one which bodes well for the final against opponents still to be decided. The gallant team members on Friday were: W. Quinn & E. McGill; C. O’Kane & P. Boyle; F. Kennedy & S. Cafferty; M. Nicholson & J. Quinn; S. Ryan & C. Keeney.

Our Ulster Cup team received a bye into the semi-final following the withdrawal of Foyle from the competition. It’s our first semi-final in 21 years and a great boost for everyone at the club.

Finally, we congratulate our professional, Connor Mallon and his wife on the birth of their daughter last weekend.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 2nd August 2011

The 95 golfers who participated in the July Medal competition sponsored by the Dolmen Centre enjoyed excellent golfing conditions and the scoring reflected the quality of the course at present. Michael Naughton has always inferred that his fourball colleagues are a millstone around his golf game and he proved a point when, in their absence, he recorded a fine round of three under net par 70. News of the loss of a shot on his handicap as a result was on CNN within minutes of him signing his card! His score and worse has won many a medal but afternoon-finisher, Patrick P. Gallagher went one better, finishing on 69. It wasn’t to be for the Glenties golfer, however, for Paul McCloskey followed up on his two victories in June by capturing the medal with 68 nett off 17 handicap. His nett four under par back nine made the difference, with a birdie on 15 the highlight. Paul will now participate in the Golfer of the Year tournament to be played in the autumn and if he maintains this form, he will be hard to stop.

Gary McHugh won last Wednesday’s Open with an excellent score of 43 points, comprising nines of 23 and 20 points respectively. Birdies galore at 2, 7, 11 and 16 showed how hot his golf was on the day and he could even afford a blank on the last to win by a single point from fast-finishing James P. Byrne.

Please make a note in your diary that a presentation of prizes will take place in the clubhouse on Sunday 7th August at 8.30p.m. sharp. A mixed tournament takes place every Friday evening at 6p.m.

Last Saturday’s Inter District Classic was cancelled. The result of the three-club challenge is not to hand at present but will feature next week.

We wish the Ulster Cup team well this Sunday as they attempt to prevail at home to Foyle in the quarter final. Seven matches may be required to win out, but they’ve proved their durability in previous rounds, so don’t write them off just yet!

Harold Reid’s Junior Donegal team reached the semi-final, defeating Cruit Island on a play-off.  Both teams won 4-3 at home, so Aaron Bennett had to go out again to decide the overall tie. He had already won his own match on the 22nd hole, but he needed just one to defeat his gallant Cruit opponent. The first leg of the semi-final has already been played, with Narin and Portnoo losing all seven matches away from home in Gaoth Dobhair, two being decided on play-offs. We wish them well in the return leg.

The club sympathises with Tony McCormack, his family and friends on the recent sad passing of Sheena. May she rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.

Finally, I would like to thank the erudite captain, Brian McGonagle for covering the notes for me these past three weeks. It was much appreciated.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 27th July 2011

What a difference a week makes… last Sundays competition cancelled due to terrible weather and this Sundays competition enjoyed in splendid sunshine.

The P G Harkin Construction sponsored competition produced a lot of low scoring with the top three scores closer together than three coats of paint.

Ronnie Hill finished top of the heap with 41points – out in 19 with a blank at the fifth, he turned on the style on the tougher back nine to accumulate 22 points for a winning score of 41points. Commiserations to El Presidente and Mickey Campbell beaten on bot.

Sunday July 24th 1. Ronnie Hill (19) 41pts bot 2. Bart Whelan (14) 41pts bot 3. Mickey Campbell (12) 41pts bot Cat A: Donnie Mc Cole (9) 37pts bot Cat B: Paul Maxwell (13) 40pts Cat C: Patrick Gallagher (20) 38pts bot 1st nine Brendan Quinn (17) 21pts 2nd nine Seamus Tully (21) 20pts bot.

Lady Captains  Prize  for the men was played for on Wednesday July 20th and again good scoring and good weather went hand in hand. 1. Sean Callaghan (19) 39pts bot 2. Daniel Mc Geehan (16) 39pts bot 3. Michael Glynn (19) 38pts. Our gallant Ulster Cup team made what for them was a short trip to Foyle G.C. for the first leg of the last eight in the competition.

There were a lot of close matches that just didn’t go our way on the day but I’m sure the lads will be thinking of their home form this year which has been remarkable and will face into the second leg full of self belief. As their team captain would say, “break a leg”!

Please make a note in your diary that a presentation of prizes will take place in the clubhouse on Saturday 6th August at 9pm sharp!

Results for Narin & Portnoo Golf Club, Ladies Branch

It’s been a very busy few weeks for Narin/Portnoo Ladies, starting off with the first Major of 2011; Mr Captain’s Prize to the Ladies. July’s Open Day was a great success, played in perfect conditions (for some of us) which was reflected in the very nice scores.

Lady Captain’s Day couldn’t have been played in nicer conditions. Everyone was welcomed by Bernie and presented with a lovely goody bag and snacks for out the course so there were no excuses not to do well!! There was a great turnout for the golf, dinner and presentation later that night. Congratulations to Bernie on what was a very enjoyable and memorable day. Congratulations to all the prizewinners.

The next major to be played will be Lady President’s Prize on Saturday 6th August. And then we have Open Week starting 8th – 13th August, with Ladies Open Day on Tuesday 9th August, sponsored by Public Image Hair Salon, Ballybofey.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 19th July 2011

Our club was deeply saddened this week to hear that Sean Houston, past Captain (2009), had passed away. Sean was an outstanding gentleman and a great ambassador for the club over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.

Our open competition for the 12th July was won by Jim Harley, Strabane, with an excellent score of 40 points – it has not gone unnoticed that Jim has figured well in the prizes of late!

1. Jim Harley (10) 40pts 2. Stephen Cooper (13) 39pts 3. Barney Cunningham (24) 38pts bot

Our Wednesday Open was well supported with 135 in the field. Hughie Moore with two good birdies on the first and the treacherous 15th paved the way for a total of 40 points – yet another consistent performer – thankfully for club teams also!

1. Hughie Moore (12) 40pts 2. Harry Magee (12) 37pts bot 3. Marshall Humphreys (14) 37pts bot

A fantastic couple of days golf was had by all on the 8th/9th July at the annual Narin & Portnoo PGA Pro Am in association with the Harcourt Hotel, Dublin.  There was a great buzz about the club house as the tournament kicked off early on Friday morning.  With the skills of top Pros on view, including European Tour player Simon Thornton and Ryder Cup hero Philip Walton there was much good play to admire.Competition was intense with Peter Martin (Riverside Golf Academy) and Eamon Brady (Clontarf Golf Club) leading in the clubhouse shooting 68(-5) after day one. Indeed, with 11 of the 47 Pros breaking par on day one it ensured there would be much interest in day two.  In the end Mark O’Sullivan, (Ashbourne Golf Club) pipped one of the over night leaders Eamonn Brady (68,72 – 140) to the post shooting a fantastic 69 to add to his 70 for a total of 139,7 under par.

The team prize was won by Barrie Trainor (Pro) who was ably assisted by Des Turley and friends.

Finally, further congratulations to Sean Hanrahan and his Ulster Cup Team who defeated Warrenpoint on Sunday – it was a close match with a scare or two at the end! We wish them all the best in the last 8 of the competition – onwards and upwards!

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 12th July 2011

Alas! Finally there was suncream, iceream, even buckets and spades in evidence over the past week – maybe its summertime after all! As for the golf it was sunshine all the way for the winner – (perhaps heedful of the prompt last week?) having found his tempo, right there beside his mojo, Cathal set out steady with 18 points but then hit the accelerator on the back nine with an excellent 22 points for a total of 40 winning points. We will be hoping Cathal can bring this great run of form to Warrenpoint next Sunday!

July 6th Clonleigh Co-op Open Stableford Competition 1. Cathal Donoghue (12) 40 pts bot 2. Seamus Ryan (18) 40 pts bot 3. Anthony Harkin 40 pts bot Cat A Finian O Doherty (3) 37pts bot Cat B Danny Mc Ginley(17) 39pts Cat C Sean Callaghan (19) 36pts Front 9 Paul Mc Ginley (17) 20 pts bot Back 9 Michael O Neill (14) 21pts.

Another Glenties man of Ulster Cup renown showed the form that was needed to win Wednesdays Competition also with 40points.

Wednesday 6th July 1. Joe Mc Loone (10) 40 points 2. Kevin Mc Cready (20) 36pts 3. Michael Naughton (16) 35 points.

Congratulations to Sean Hanrahan and his Ulster Cup team in defeating Warrenpoint 5 – 2 in the first leg of the last 16 but as they know only too well they will need to work hard in the “Point” to come way with an overall victory next Sunday – so we wish them all the best!

Our Pro-Am coverage will appear next week but in short it was a great sucess again this year, with a low score of seven under par from Mark O Sullivan (Ashbourne G.C.) over the two days capturing victory.

The presentation for this Saturday is cancelled due to a number of prize winners being on club duty

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 5th June 2011

Sunday July 3rd Competition was sponsored by United Fish Industries and so  it was fitting that the first prize returned to Killybegs.  The “quiet man” (some say assisted by “climate control”) took full advantage of the perfect golfing conditions on Sunday.  Out in an unspectacular 19 points, Sean upped his game with an excellent birdie 4 on 10 which was further bolstered with pars on 12, 13, 14, 16 & 17 on the back nine for a total of 40 points.  A quick word of consolation to the numerous players who finished on 39 points on the day including Cathal Donoghue (who ambled around the links) and our premier, President Bart Whelan who was beaten into 3rd on a BOT.

Results: 1st Sean Cafferty (11)  40 pts , 2nd Cathal Donoghue (13) 39 pts bot, 3rd Bart Whelan (15) 39 bot, Cat A Jim Harley (11) 39 pts, Cat B Tony Dooley (17) 39 bot, Cat C George Doherty (18) 39 bot.

Wednesday June 29th Open Competition was won by the ever improving golfer Anthony Thompson with 42 points.  We hope this is a good omen for the County football team.

Results: 1st Anthony Thompson (13) 42 pts, 2nd Michael Doyle (13) 40 pts, 3rd P. J. Murray (20) 39 pts

Junior competitions will commence again for the summer months starting this Thursday (for students not too busy preparing for the next academic year!)

Finally, we are all looking forward to welcoming the professionals to our annual PRO-AM this coming Friday and Saturday. With 45 teams (2 late places still available) and a number of top professionals playing including Simon Thornton, European Tour player and the legendary Philip Walton of Ryder Cup fame, we can rightly expect a memorable couple of days of golf!

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 2nd June 2011


Gerard McCabe was the proud recipient of the 2011 Narin and Portnoo Golf Club Captain’s Prize presented by Brian McGonagle.


The golfers who won prizes in the Brian McGonagle’s Captain’s Prize to the Ladies were, from left: Mary Nicholson (1st), Nan Quinn (2nd) and Agnes Shovlin (3rd).


Deirdre and Kevin Patton won the Mixed Foursomes Prize at Narin and Portnoo Golf Club and are pictured with club captain, Brian McGonagle.


Michael Naughton won the Past Captains’ Shield at Narin and Portnoo Golf Club and is pictured receiving his prize from Brian McGonagle.

Mr. Brian McGonagle presented his Captain’s Prize to Gerard McCabe at a presentation in the clubhouse last Sunday night. The Ardara golfer was consistent throughout the weekend, recording scores of 38 and 39 points for a total of 77 and deserving possession of a fabulous painting of the iconic seventh hole. His first round left him four shots adrift of Brendan Quinn who shot a great 42 points. Gerard went about his business in splendid fashion on Sunday, putting well and coping better than most with the vagaries of the windy conditions. A blank on seven dented his progress for a bit, but a birdie, four pars and several valuable bogeys thereafter earned him his laurel wreath. Other notable scores over the weekend included several fine 39s on the Sunday and a notable eagle for past captain, Seamus McDonagh at the 14th. The wind proved a handful, with medium-length par fours turning into virtual par fives when fronted head-on, while stopping a ball on the downwind holes tested the mettle of the best exponents of the game. The rain stayed off for the most part, a much-needed bonus for the captain after the terrible weather of Tuesday (Prize to the Ladies) and Friday (Captain’s Mixed Foursomes). The former was won by Mary Nicholson on a break-off-tie from Nan Quinn. The latter saw two-times reigning Clements Foursomes winners, Kevin Patton and his wife, Deirdre win out despite the deluge. Michael Naughton won the coveted Past Captains’ Shield with 36 points and his acceptance speech creased the chuckle muscles of the patrons for its wit and topicality. All in all, it was a lovely week’s golfing celebration and we wish Brian well for the rest of his captaincy.

Paul McCloskey won his second Wednesday Open in succession with another 42 point total! Five three-pointers on the back nine earned him his victory and the close attention of the Congu Handicap Reduction application! He has now lost four shots in just seven days, yet a round of 36 points on day two of the Captain’s Prize shows that there’s more to come.

The Minor League team had a tough encounter with Ballybofey & Stranorlar last week, losing 3-2 at home. Winners on the day were Pat Connaghan & Kevin McCready and Hugh Francis Shovlin & Sean Callaghan. The lads face an uphill battle to progress in the away leg but there’s steel in those veins, so all is possible!

The club’s senior team is in a strong position in its tussle with Rosapenna, leading four-one from the away leg. None of the pairings were beaten, with three recording wins and two getting vital halves. The return will be on July 1st.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 21st June 2011

Our gallant Ulster Cup side turned around a tricky situation last Sunday when ending Gracehill’s hopes of progressing further in this year’s competition. Trailing six-one after the away leg, Sean and Cathal’s men knew that no there was no room for error and their charges responded magnificently, winning all seven matches to advance to the fourth round. This was one of the club’s best results of recent years and bodes well for the future. Congratulations lads!

Michael Nicholson enjoyed a whopping six shot victory in last Sunday’s D&D Insurance Open, racing around the links in just four over par gross. The Narin man’s nines were almost identical, with 22 points being recorded on the outward set and his tally improving by 23 on the return. Birdies at Loch Eala (2), Roaninish (11) and Sweeney’s Bank(14) illustrate his prowess on the day and the round will be one that he will look back on with fondness for many years to come. Michael Naughton won the battle of the cidevant school-masters, pipping Tom O’Donnell for second place with 39 points.

Paul McCloskey won last Wednesday’s Open with an excellent 42 points. His margin of four over visitor, Breda Giluarry was impressive and a portent of good scores to come.

We wish the Donegal Minor League team well in their next round which commences this week and hope that Narin and Portnoo’s senior team can round off an excellent performance thus far against Rosapenna in which they lead four-one from the away leg.

Mr. Brian McGonagle hosts his Captain’s Prize this weekend and one prays that the weather is kind to all concerned. The week’s events include the Mixed Foursomes, Ladies’ Day, Past Captains/Presidents and Captain’s Dinner. We wish Brian and his family a lovely and memorable week.
