Gents’ Golfer of the Year 2017

Congratulations to Paul Colgan our Gents Golfer of the Year 2017. 

A popular winner and huge supporter of all Clogher Valley Golf Club’s Competitions throughout the year, it was a great pleasure for Captain Andy to present Paul with his winning trophy.

Very well done Paul!

Ladies Singles Winner

Many congratulations to Betty Monaghan, our Ladies Singles Winner for 2017 – well done Betty!

Also many thanks and well done to all our Ladies who took part in this year’s competition and to our Ladies Singles Runner Up, Lady Captain Hazel. It was a tough competition this year with heavy rain making playing conditions challenging at times, to say the least.

Gents’ Singles Winner

It was a father and son, Armstrong vs Armstrong play-off for our Gents’ Singles Competition with youth (son Paul) winning out over experience (father Captain Andy).

Many congratulations to our Gents Singles Winner Paul Armstrong – Captain Andy can take some consolation from knowing he taught him well over the years!

Clogher Valley Golf Club truly is club for all ages and offers a superb facility for Families to play an enjoyable, albeit competitive, game of golf!

Captain’s Team wins the Day

Captain Andy’s Team won the day on our last one day Competition of the 2017 Season with a win over President’s Everett’s side. As usual there was a healthy rivalry on the course and plenty of banter afterwards in the Clubhouse.

Refreshments were served and the last of our Competition Prizes awarded for Club Competitions held over the preceding weeks.

President’s Day Gets Underway

President Everett’s big Day is underway with Club Members, visiting Presidents and invited guests enjoying refreshments in the Clubhouse before teeing off on a cold but bright day in the Clogher Valley.

Prize Giving will follow a meal in the Clubhouse this evening (seated for 8.30pm please) – with the usual dancing and craic to the wee hours (no doubt!)

In lieu of gifts the President has asked for donations, if desired, to the ‘Make a Wish Foundation’.

Congratulations Everett on your President’s Day.

Results Crawford’s Fuels Stableford

With only one very generous prize, this competition attracted a considerable number of entrants. Vice-Captain, Seamus McGirr set the pace on Friday morning with a solid round, scoring 38pts. He remained the leader up to 6.30pm, Sunday when Charlie Keys arrived with 41pts (including a ding) to walk away with 1st place and his 2018 Membership paid for the coming season. Dave Johnston, (Charlie’s playing partner) also carded 38pts (with two dings) but was pushed into second place on Countback.

Sadly for Dave and Seamus there is no reward for coming second in this competition.

Linda Armstrong took the Ladies 1st prize, for the second year running, with a super round of 33pts – earning herself £100 towards her 2018 Membership.

Next Saturday 7th Oct, is President’s day. Members and visitors please note, course is reserved from 1pm so please use the time sheet, or phone Victor, so you won’t be disappointed.

Results of Peter Bogue Body Repairs Competition

There was a healthy number of entries for this competition considering the weather (dismal on Saturday). Friday morning had the Vice Captain (Seamus McGirr) set the standard with a creditable 38pts. That lasted about two hours when Norman Kerr arrived with 39.

Then “Strokey” as he is affectionately known, (Derek Wright), the assistant green-keeper, stroked in 40pts. Try as they might, the Sunday Club with lovely weather, just couldn’t match it. Players all remarked how well the course had soaked the persistent rainfall.

The only complaint was from John Moore. He said the greens had been “swished” and left them too fast. He had had a great start, but blew up after the turn. He is now employing a new blacksmith.

Many thanks is due to Peter Bogue, sponsor, as this competition had been postponed from earlier because of the weather.
