Ballybofey & Stranorlar Golf Club’s early birds had their Captain’s outing in Dunfanaghy Golf Club on Sunday.
After a few cancellations due to the elements, they got a fantastic day in the seaside town although the strong winds, made sure their golf skills would be tested to the full.
It was Convoy’s Seán Carlin who came out on top although early indications looked so much different for him having scratched two out of the first five holes.

Early birds Captain Cathal Patton was delighted at the turnout on the day and thanked his fellow members, guests and B&S Club Captain Bernard Foy for making the trip.
