The competition last weekend was the W. P. Mc Carter Memorial / RNLI Fundraiser Open Stableford and there were some great scoring over the two days.
The best score of the weekend was returned by 3 handicapper Pauric O’ Flaherty.
Pauric shot a very impressive 2 under gross over the front 9 holes and then another 1 under gross over the back 9 holes to amass his winning score of 42 pts.
This is the golf that made Pauric one of the best amateur golfers about and if he maintains his commitment to practising he will be a force to reckon with over the coming months.
