Captain’s Day 2017 Results

The week began with the Ladies. They played Mon to Wed and then rolled up their sleeves to help with the work.

There was a real buzz of activity. Painting and decorating, cutting grass, mowing greens, clipping hedges, raking bunkers, gathering litter, washing signs etc, etc., and what a job they done. The place looked magnificent. (Not a “hare” out of place). The greens were playing faster than they’ve ever played and whilst the weather was causing some concern, it turned out to be better than expected.

Captain’s Day 18 hole Stableford began on Fri 8th. The course was closed from 11.30am on Saturday 9th for the Captain (Andy Armstrong) and his 60 guests who enjoyed a light lunch before tee off. The flower arrangements on the tees, (provided by David & Henrietta Willis) were the final compliment the course deserved, and the golf didn’t disappoint either. The Captain’s hospitality which we sampled at the half-way mark was truly heartwarming. Afterwards everyone retired to the Club House where “Rusks” restaurant did us proud with the food and service provided. The establishment was further complimented by the flower arrangements which adorned the building. These had been arranged by the Captain’s wife, Linda, and the President’s wife, Jennifer Bennett. There was music and dancing throughout the evening and the Captain’s draw concluded a marvelous occasion. The winner of the draw (£1000.00) was a “friend” of Malachy Graham. Malachy was speechless so Victor Collum asked him what was wrong “did the cat catch your tongue Malachy”?

Captain’s Draw…..All 600 tickets were sold so a major donation will be given to Clogher Valley Care Home for Dementia Care, as promised.

Results Valley Commercials Stroke Competition

Another close contest with just 8 strokes separating the top 14 players. The battle at the top could only be sorted by Countback. Charlie Keys had a brilliant 62 nett on Sunday. Paul Colgan was very unlucky with a marvelous 76 gross. Playing off 14 brought him back to 62 nett also, and had a better back nine than Charlie, but Brendan McCusker arrived with 62 nett, and again, a better back nine than Charlie & Paul.

Gents:-

1st – Brendan McCusker, 62 nett
