RETURN WIN FOR SHAUN (Sat 19th May 2018)
Having been out of the game for almost 15 years Shaun McGarrigle (12) made a speedy return to the winners rostrum on Saturday in the McHughs Oil open Stableford returning a best of the day 40pts thanks to a very strong inward nine where he chalked up seven pars and 22pts, to get the verdict in front of no fewer than five golfers who had all recorded 39pts earlier in the day in what must be said were tough conditions with the strong Southerly breeze prevailing throughout. The runner up in the aforementioned congested leader-board was James McGhee(15) a young player who has featured regularly in recent weeks and definitely one to watch as his improvement continues, in third position came Gerard Walsh (16) with Enda McDonnell (23) in fourth place and Stephen Alexander(18) fifth all with the same total of 39pts. Saturday’s gross prize went to Ryan McGowan (5)with 32 gross points, the front nine went to Anthony Brennan(18) with 21 pts to the turn with Brian Forrester (16) taking the back nine with 22pts. Congratulations to David Mullen who recorded his first hole in one on Saturday when he holed his tee-shot at the par three- 2nd hole. The presentation for this competition plus the recent J.A.Gamble Stableford, Rollins insurance and Charlies Bar competitions will take place on Friday evening at 8.30pm sharp, all Prize winners are asked to be in attendance.

CHARLIES BAR OPEN STABLEFORD (Thurs 17th May 2018)
There was an excellent turnout for last Thursdays competition sponsored by Charles Breslin of “Charlies Bar” Strabane over 100 players took out cards on the day. The winner was Keith Patterson (8) with a fine three over par total of 41 pts in the breezy conditions, the runner up was Ryan Patton (18) with 40 pts and Paul O’Reilly (6) next with his third consecutive 39pts, Enda Kennedy (scr) was the gross winner with a level par 36 pts.

Ladies Golf
Category one golfers were prominent in the Ladies competition last Tuesday the Marie Curie Cancer care event, the winner was Jennifer Rouse (8) with an excellent 40 pts which was just four over par on the day! the category one winner was Bernie O’Kane (20) with 37 pts with Olive Reid (31) the winner in category two with 36pts.
The winners of last weeks mixed foursomes played over 13 holes were Bernie O’Kane & Liam McGinley with 25pts, the runners up were Debbie McDaid & Stephen Kennedy also with 25 pts.

No joy for our mixed Foursomes team however at Killymoon G.C. on Sunday in the regional qualifying tournament where they failed to qualify for the matchplay stages, although missing out very narrowly in the end up it’s fair to say it was an uncharacteristic poor outing for a very strong side.

Better news for Pat Corry’s J. B.Carr team who are through to the next stage after a narrow win over Castlehume G.C on Wednesday last ,leading 4-1 from the home-leg Strabane got through by the narrowest of margins securing the second match they needed at the first tie hole when the team captain and George McCay won their match, after Francie Devine and Brian Forrester had won their tie at the 18th hole.

Frankie Connolly’s Conway Cup team picked up an 11-5 advantage over Enniskillen G.C. in their match at home last Sunday and will have work to do to progress after the away leg on Sunday week.

This week’s winner was Senan Roarty (12) with an excellent four over par round that converted to 44pts despite dropping shots at the final two holes, this was good enough by four points from the runner up David Mullen (12) with 40pts and third placed Johnathan Cecil McGillion (12) “the demon barber” continues his eye catching form having begun the season at 18 handicap he is now playing of (11).The gross prize went to Shay Callaghan (8) with 31 gross points.

Well done to Mary Duffy and her ladies team who got the better of Green Isle Ladies on Friday past by 7 matches to 3 overall to advance to the next stage in that one.
TEAM NEWS
Well done to Mark Gillespie & Nicky Wolfe as their team defied the odds to qualify for the next round of the Ulster Cup, a brilliant performance at Bangor Golf club on Monday where they took three of the seven matches saw them advance by a margin of four holes up after the tie had finished level at 7-7. Unfortunately John McMenamin’s All Ireland Four-ball team could not quite manage to repair the damage in their tie with Kilrea G.C. A poor away result had left them with a mountain to climb and although they certainly got close to the summit Kilrea dug in deep to take one of the early matches, best wishes to the Co.Derry team who could well go far in the competition this year.
Congratulations also to Aidan Boyle and his “Jimmy Bruen” team who qualified in second place at Enniskillen on Sunday past,they will now meet Omagh G.C. back at the Co. Fermanagh venue on a date yet to be decided. Best wishes to Paddy O’Kane and Nigel Houston and their “Pierce Purcell” squad who will also attempt to qualify for the matchplay stages of that event at Faughan Valley G.C on Sunday.
