There was a fantastic turnout last weekend for Mr. Pius Mc Fadden’s Presidents Prizes a testament to the high esteem Pius is held in by the members and local golfing fraternity.
The best score of the weekend was returned by Brian Mc Cracken who played some of his best golf for a while. Brian shot a very impressive 25 pts over the front 9 and added another 22 pts over the back 9 to amass his fantastic winning score of 47 pts.
