Youth had its fling once again last Sunday in the latest monthly medal, sponsored by Mickey’s Express Stop. Following on from Finnian O’Doherty’s excellent performance in the President’s Prize, Aaron Bennett shot a six over par gross round of 79 to win by a shot from former rugby star, Rab Brady. Amazingly, the big-hitting teenager didn’t pick up a birdie all day, but the twelve pars were mighty impressive nonetheless.
Joseph O’Boyle watched Manus Boyle Snr. shoot a whopping 48 points several weeks ago and obviously decided to get in on the act himself. His score last Wednesday came up just one point short, featuring golf of the highest quality and inspiring Tony Boner and Tom Glynn to study the O’Boyle swing with even more keenness than before. Eleven under par is some score and the handicap has accordingly been much reduced!
This weekend sees our annual Pro-Am swing into action and we wish all the competitors every success. Some of the best professional golfers in Ireland will be coming to Narin and who knows, maybe there will be a budding Graeme McDowell among them. All are welcome to watch the golf and good weather is forecast! The Harcourt Hotel has come on board once more as the main sponsor and the club is extremely grateful.
