THE 18-hole Open Stableford sweep at Buncrana Golf Club was won last week by Ferdia O’Flaherty.
A 12-handicapper, Ferdia played some of his best golf for a while to shoot 42 pts.
With this return to form Ferdia will now be looking forward to the Mini-League which starts this weekend. In second place was the ever-consistent Derek smith (8) with 41 pts and Caolan Mc Laughlin (11) finished third with 39 pts.
The Annual Mini-League will commence this Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th January 2020 and will run for 4 weeks with all Fridays also included for returning scores. The format will be week 1- greensomes, week 2 – 2 ball betterball, week 3 – 2 ball scramble and the final week greensomes. 3 scores from the 4 weeks will be used to qualify for the match play stages. The entry fee will be €20.00 for the 4 weeks and names are now being taken.
The “Twenties” competitions will continue over the next few months and will give members the opportunity to play competition golf throughout this period. The cost will be €3.00 to enter and will run until 20 competitors play with the prize being won at this stage and a new competition will start straight away.
