Letterkenny Golf Club are into the semi-finals of the Donegal Senior League.
After a disappointing 3-2 defeat at home, Barry Kavanagh rallied his team to a 3-2 win away in Ballyliffin.
That left boy wonder Cian Harkin to seal the deal on the 1st playoff hole.
Up next is either Bundoran or Strabane on September 8th in Portsalon at 2.30pm.
The All Ireland Fourball failed to get to the Ulster Final. With four of the five games up after 9 holes all was looking good however the team went down on a very narrow margin in the end. They were up in holes but just not getting the extra point needed, 4:1 on the day the final result of 6:4 going to Templepatrick.
A big thank you on behalf of the Club to all the Panel that contributed to the journey and Team Captain Chris Nee who is already planning his strategy for 2020.
