John Callaghan won the final stableford of November by a single point from Paul McCloskey in second. The bulk of his work was accomplished on the outward nine, with three three-pointers accompanying six regulation two-pointers for a halfway total of 21. It was harder coming back but John kept a blank off his scorecard and the two points achieved at the last guaranteed his success.
Last Wednesday’s Open was cancelled due to the inclement weather so the opportunity to golf on Sunday was welcomed by the mid-week crew. The hailstones were not too inviting, and yet scoring was quite good, with Harold Reid and Donie McCole excelling with 39 stableford points for a two-point victory. The Mini-Hamper scheduled for last Sunday has been deferred to a future date.
