Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 12th February 2011

The final tallies from the recent fundraising ventures have once again demonstrated the generosity of the golfing fraternity. The Free Golf Day raised 1090 euro for the Donegal Hospice, while the Captain’s Drive-in raised 300 euro for Voluntary Service Overseas. We thank all those who made this possible.

Manus Boyle Jnr. was victorious in last Sunday’s stableford, finishing just three gross shots over the par of 73. The seven-handicapper was moving along steadily on the front nine before exploding into life at Downstrands and The Nuns’ Pool, birdying both. The back nine was less dynamic, though his five pars to finish was commendable. Tom O’Donnell had his own personal battle with George Doherty for the runners-up slot and the former took both the laurels and the fourball bragging rights with an excellent 39 points. A crestfallen George looked back to see where Eamon, Bart et al. finished in the pecking order but even his keen eyesight is not that good.

Entries for the upcoming Spring League will be taken for the next two weeks in the Pro Shop. The format is scotch foursomes and the fee is 14 euro per pair.

Michael Naughton has informed me that the next Gaeltacht match is at home this Saturday when Gaoth Dobhair will be visiting. Golfers are asked to be present by 10.30a.m.
