The finals of the Club Matchplay have now come to their conclusion – a little later than was planned for but in light of the inclement weather of late, it is understandable – at Letterkenny Golf Club.
The singles final was contested on Saturday past between Eunan McGarrigle and Greg Magee.
Eunan reached the final after beating Patrick Mc Gowan in the semi final while Greg defeated Noel Duggan to reach the final.
On the day Greg’s form deserted him and Eunan had a comfortable victory in the end.
Winning the club Championship this year is just reward for Eunan and it was a case of third time lucky.
He was beaten in the final in 2017 and the semi final last year – congrats Eunan and Greg and all other members who took part in this years competition.
The Doubles final took place the previous Saturday between the pairings of Peter Dobson / Patrick O’Kane and Michael Nelis / Charlie McLaughlin.
This was a very evenly contested final and it went all the way to the 18th Green before Peter and Patrick could declare themselves Club Champions for 2019.
Again congrats to all members who contributed to a successful competition again this year
