The winning team in the Captains’ Drive-in at Narin and Portnoo Golf Club: Ann Hayden (club lady president), Margaret Roarty (lady captain), Seamus McDonagh (club captain) & Connor Mallon (PGA professional).
The club’s Gaeltacht team was in Cloughaneely on March 20th and came away with three points out of the ten on offer. Two matches were won, while two other pairs halved. The next match will take place at home to Cruit Island this Saturday, commencing at 10a.m. and we wish the lads every success.
Charlie Tully enjoyed his St. Patrick’s Day golf, walking off with the plaudits following a round of 38 points in the Wednesday Open. The birdie two at seven helped considerably towards a front nine of 20 points, while parring the three successive par fives coming home is always a good result. John McBride came second on a break-off-tie from Hugh Francis Shovlin.
Sunday’s competition was sponsored by Keltic Hygiene and Killybegs triumphed yet again with Tom Rawdon putting a fine round of 40 points together in the breezy conditions. An indifferent opening two holes didn’t promise much on the day but he rallied with five three-pointers in his six holes to turn in twenty points and the par on ten for four points propelled him to a further twenty points coming home. We congratulate Connie McGinley of Glencolmcille on his well-executed hole-in-one at the third.
