The A.G.M. will take place in the Dolmen Centre at 6p.m. on Friday, December 30th. All full members are entitled to attend.
Eamon McGill won the Christmas Hamper with an excellent score of 69 nett playing off 10 handicap. A double bogey at the start was not a promising omen but with the experience of many a hard-earned win down the years, Eamon responded like a true champion, parring seven of the remaining holes on his front nine. Birdies at 13 and 14 proved the master was still a force to be reckoned with and he ran out a comfortable winner by two shots from Danny McGarrigle.
Paddy B. Boyle won the final big prize of the Christmas period when capturing the Christmas Cracker on Sunday last. Over 40 golfers avoided the Christmas shopping by escaping to the links and the mild weather was a godsend after so many hard days recently. The multi-talented Loughfad resident enjoyed a three point margin of victory over Sean Cafferty in second.
The last two Wednesday Opens were cancelled due to the poor weather.
The club wishes all its members and friends a most peaceful and happy Christmas.
