The Letterkenny Hospitals Golf Society held it’s final outing of a very successful year at Portsalon Golf Club in glorious conditions last Monday.
There was another big turnout as members enjoyed the beautiful weather and the course in pristine condition with a sea breeze making things a little tricky.
Local knowledge proved vital as John James McBride took the victory with a fine score of 35 points, giving him a two-point winning margin over Runner-up Joe Blake on 33 points.
Another fine performance from Joe in what has been a most consistent season which saw him accumulate 177 points from his best 5 out of 6 outings at an average of 35.4 points per outing and take the Golfer of the Year Award in impressive fashion.
Section One: Dessie Ferry 32pts, Anne Cannon 32pts, Mary Murray 30pts. Section Two: Mickey Ferry 29pts, Mick Gallagher 29pts, Tony Doherty 28pts. Section Three: Noel Duggan 32pts, Vera Kearney 31pts, Adrian Daly 31pts. Section Four: Pat Harvey 31pts, Maureen Sweeney 31pts, Carmel McGeady 31pts. First Nine: James McFadden 18pts, 2nd Nine; Barry Ramsay 18pts.
Outgoing Captain Anne Cannon thanked Portsalon Golf Club for hosting her final outing and all society members for their support during her year as captain, a role she thoroughly enjoyed.
Anne also thanked the officers of the society for their great support and the amount of time they give to ensuring it’s continued success. Her final act as captain was to hand over the reins to her 2018 vice-captain Ciaran Williamson to take over the role of captain for 2019.
