Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 8th September 2010

The Captain’s Outing to Ballyliffin is scheduled for October 9th and 10th. The cost is 110 euro per person sharing for two rounds of golf, bed and breakfast, an evening meal and prize-fund. Non-golfers are welcome to come for just 80 euro. Places are limited, so please contact the professionals as soon as possible.

Past captain, Michael Glynn hit the right notes last Monday in the Northern Bank Holiday stableford, finishing a shot ahead of Connor Taggart. This was the last hurrah of summer and Michael enjoyed every bit of it, racing through the back nine in 23 points. A trilogy of three-pointers got his back nine off to a great start and it was plain sailing from then on, with Michael eventually finishing on 41 points.

The Wednesday Open was an enjoyable affair, with unseasonably nice weather shocking all on the first day of September. John Gillespie of Cruit Island finished on top with 40 points, a fine performance on an away course. Neily Gildea and John McBride scrapped for the minor placings, with the Ardara man edging it by a shot over the Glenties stalwart. One wonders whether or not the upcoming local Rider Cup will see a similar outcome!

Results:
August 30: 1. Michael Glynn (20) 41; 2. Connor Taggart (17) 40; 3. Martin Regan (20) 38 b.o.t.; CSS 72; Twos: 6 balls
