It WAS a great relief to members that the return to golf was allowed again after quite a break.

The course has been particularly busy since reopening, and members are observing the regulations as laid down.

Four balls have been allowed since April 12, and that is another step towards normality. There have been two 18-hole competitions so far – one a singles Stableford, and the other a Scramble to whet players’s appetite when things get going properly.

The results of the singles Stableford are: 1 – Lee McMoran, 44; 2 – Aidan Devlin, 43; 3 – John Donnelly, 41; Gross – Jason Gibson, 34; Seniors – Pat McCullagh, 39; Juvenile – Conan Hegarty, 49; 1st 9 – Wayne McClean, 22; 2nd 9 – Barry Cunningham, 23. This competition qualified for handicap adjustments.

There was a champagne Scramble on Sunday which was to raise funds for our club, and the runaway winners were Gareth Quinn, Steven Quinn, John McSharry and Barry Cunningham, with 115 points.

Derrick Jobb, Beverley Jobb, Arnold Jobb and Jack Montgomery were second, with 111 points.

Also on 111 were Eamonn McNelis, Anna McNelis, Joan Quinn and Ian Cathcart in third.

The final, fourth place went to the McNelis family of Plunkett, Geraldine, Jack and Pauraic, on 109 points. The club wishes to thank everyone who played in this fundraising event.

Members are reminded that no guests are allowed until the situation changes, and all casual play must be pre-booked on the BRS system.
