Then just turn up on the day and play golf.

Pat McGee won the latest Wednesday Open on a break-off-tie with 38 points from committee member, Kevin Gilgunn. The damage was done on his front nine, with five pars building up a fine score. Further pars at 10, 11, 13, 16 and a vital one on 18 ensured success by the narrowest of margins. Mary Nicholson was best lady on the day with 34 nett.

We congratulate Agnes Shovlin on achieving the latest ace at the club, this time at the eleventh hole with her trusty six iron!

Sunday was a day for the low handicapper, with Lyle Taggart victorious in a competition played in windy conditions, featuring localised showers of biblical proportion. Yours truly deigned to venture out on Clooney warren only to be buffeted from one shower and double bogey to another. Serves me right! Lyle is made of sterner stuff and he utilised the wind going out to record 18 points (including a birdie at Loch Eala) before impressing all with his long-hitting coming home. The birdie at Inis Caoil (15th) was the stuff of legend!

Congratulations to the Senior team and management on winning the Senior Championship for the second time in the clubs history against Killybegs last Sunday. The day was a very memorable and proud day for everyone involved with the club after all the hard work that has been done down the years and it makes up for the disappointment of last year.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 6th October 2010

Last week saw two members of the 1987 Donegal League winning team picking up firsts, illustrating that while form is temporary, class is permanent! Kieran Gallagher enjoyed a two point victory in the Wednesday Open, returning nines of twenty points apiece. Birdies at Lunula, Carraig Fada and Sweeney’s Bank were well-deserved and decorated an already elegant card.

Sunday saw yet another Michael Naughton victory, this time in association with his old sidekick, Seamus McDonagh. The two mirth-inducers scaled the heights on the front nine, with pars aplenty and birdies from Seamus on Lunula and Dolmen. The back nine began tentatively, but another birdie from the captain at Hemmersbach’s Gap ensured that a fall from grace was not on the cards and they were victors on a break-off-tie from Charlie Bryson and Donie McCole. Who gets to make the podium speech will be a bone of contention no doubt, but either way, it should be entertaining and educational.

September 29: Wednesday Open 1. Kieran Gallagher (9) 40; 2. Conal Gillespie (18) 38; 3. Tommy Philbin (17) 37; Twos: 4 balls October 3: Club Fourball 1.
