Club president, Bart Whelan, Lady president, Anne Hayden, Lady captain, Bernie Tonry and Captain, Brian McGonagle at the Captain’s drive-in at Narin and Portnoo Golf Club on Saturday last.

A large crowd gathered for the Captains’ Drive-in last Saturday to help officially launch the captaincies of Brian McGonagle and Bernie Tonry. The weather was very kind considering the gales of the previous week. Both golfers struck mighty drives, with no hint of nerves or trepidation. The ensuing scramble was won by Seamus McDonagh, Michael Naughton, Sean Connaughton and Joseph McLoone with 50.3 over 16 holes. The proceeds of the day were accepted by Mrs. Stephanie McNelis on behalf of the Donegal Hospice.

Sunday’s competition saw the aforementioned Joseph McLoone double up over the weekend, winning the stableford by a large margin. His score of 41 points was the only one to better par on the day, a magnificent achievement! Charlie Tully was second, six shots back, while John Bán Gallagher took third with 34 on a break-off-tie.

The Spring Foursomes 2010 was won by the pairing of Anthony Harkin and Patsy Harkin following their comfortable victory over Donie McCole and Charlie Bryson last Sunday. Both pairings had won thrilling tussles en route to the final and the quality of golf played last Sunday was a tribute to them all. The Rosbeg natives had too much in the locker on the day, however, and Charlie and Donie could have no complaints.
