Prize Night on Saturday 29th at 9pm sharp.  We had hoped to have a BBQ on this prize night but unfortunately this must be rescheduled.

Members involved in the club tournaments should get their matches played asap.

Captains Draw tickets have been issued and can be purchased through Victor or any of our Committee members.  Proceeds in aid of Local Dementia Care and our Course Irrigation System, which is now well under way.

Please remember to use the time sheets so you can be guaranteed tee times. Members in the habit of a particular start time are urged to use the time sheets or give way to those who have. Basically, the course is increasingly getting busier and we want to accommodate everyone.

Facilitating Fun continues every Monday from 10am. Young and old (and in between) are welcome. No charge.

May & June Prize Giving Evenings

Some photos of our Sponsors and Prize Winners for May & June Competitions.

It’s good to see so many members taking part in competitions and supporting our Prize Giving Evenings. We are also hugely grateful to our generous sponsors year on year for their support – without them we couldn’t run our full fixtures list each month.

The Club presented Eugene Meehan, from the local branch of Cancer Research, with a cheque for £130. We were delighted that other members of the Cancer Research Committee were able to join us on the evening. Thanks to the generosity of Charlie Keys, who donated a bottle of brandy, a further £160 was raised on the night through the sale of raffle tickets.

Don’t forget our next Competition over the weekend of 7th to 9th July, is the CLOGHER VALLEY CREDIT UNION 18 HOLE STROKE

CarZone NI, Irvinestown – Car for a ‘hole in one’

Another year and still no winners for our Lady Captain’s ‘hole in one’ competition. We are greatly indebted to Gerry McNamee who very generously sponsors this fabulous prize, year after year.

So make a date in your diaries Ladies – Clogher Valley Golf Club Lady Captain’s Open Day 2018 ….. maybe it will be 5th year lucky.

(There were some dire threats of chain saws being needed on the wee dunt – so Raymond & Strokey, you had better keep a close eye!!)

Lady Captain’s Open Day 2017 – Results & Photos

Lady Captain Hazel welcomed Lady Members and Visitors to Clogher Valley Golf Club for her Open Day (Wed, 14th June 2017).

The course was in superb condition thanks to the hard work put in by Raymond, Strokey & their band of helpers, dry weather was forecast and the stage was set for a very enjoyable day of golf.

Lady Members enjoyed morning refreshments in the Clubhouse before a shot-gun start. Alas, no-one managed a ‘hole in one’ on the ‘Wee Dunt’ where Gerry McNamee of CarZone, Irvinestown very generously sponsored a car for the 4th year running – we greatly appreciate Gerry’s support year after year!

Stephen & Aaron Fee (S & A Fee Engineering, Tempo) kindly sponsored our ladies prizes. Huge congratulations to all the winners and in particular to Carmel & Josie (v) who returned super scores to win the Club and Visitors’ prizes respectively.

Western Cars Comp Results & News Items

Busy week at the Clogher Valley. Wednesday evening Scramble continues, 6.30pm for 7pm Tee off.

This weekend coming will be the “Club Open, Stableford”. Time sheet in operation.

Tuition and practice session for beginners & improvers, (Ladies, Gents & Juveniles) continues every Monday at 10am. Free of charge, everybody welcome.

During the week we had the Western Cars Stableford competition. The course looked magnificent and was complimented with an array of exquisite vehicles on show as competitors drove up Magnolia Avenue. The golf wasn’t too bad either. Alan Forsythe & Eamon Rasdale went head-to-head, with the former succeeding, but only just, on countback. Stan (Monty) Montgomery wasn’t far away either. One slip was all he needed, but that slip didn’t happen.

Aughnacloy GC hosted Clogher Valley in the first round (first leg) of the Conway Cup. This proved to be a titanic struggle with every match being a cliff hanger. Unfortunately for Clogher Valley, they came out the wrong side of the result and will find it very difficult to claw back the lead Aughnacloy established. However, the golf was good, the course was good, the food was good and the hospitality and camaraderie was excellent. Even Sydney was good. Congratulations to Dean Marshall and his merry men. A date for the return leg will be organised later.

Prize Giving is on Saturday 27th. Winner please note, “Local Rule”. Non attendance could mean forfeiture of your prize. Music & Entertainment by Country Willie Ralph.

Please note……….Time sheets are in operation for all competitions. Victor will oblige and can be contacted during office hours on 077 7595 2690.
