Results Ivan McCauley Agri Sales Open Stableford

Andy Little was the winner of the Ivan McCauley Open Stableford competition at Clogher Valley with 43 points. It was good to see Andy back in the winner’s circle for the first time this season. A steady round of 7 pars, 9 bogeys and 1 double bogey was good enough to take the win by 1 point. The only blemish on his card came at the 13th where he failed to score.

In second place, on 42 points, was Dylan Aiken who is showing some very consistent form of late. With 8 pars, 8 bogeys, 1 double bogey and no score on the 14th almost a mirror image of Andy’s card. In 3rd place was Christopher McMulkin on 40 points on count back from Stan Montgomery. Christopher has made a steady improvement throughout the season, picking up quite a few prizes along the way. Stan had a very consistent 40 shots on each nine, scoring points on every hole.

Ian Farrell won the front 9 with a mind blowing 26 points. What happened on the back 9 Ian?? Niall Bracken took the back nine on 21 points.

In the Ladies Section Gillian Chartres won on 31 points from visitor Anne Cullen from Omagh. The highlight of her round being a birdie 2 on the 3rd .

Thanks again to Ivan McCauley Agri for their continued support.

Norman lifts the President’s Prize with a superb 46 points

Mervyn McElwaine held his President’s Day at Clogher Valley at the weekend. Almost 80 players took to the immaculately prepared fairways to do battle.
Out early on Friday was club stalwart Norman Lyons with his playing partners Norman Kerr and Billy O’Malley. He was to return with a superb 46 points which included 7 pars and 2 birdies. This was a score that could not be surpassed by any of the over 70 players that followed him. With flags in tricky positions on the greens putting would prove to be key to building a score. Norman claimed he can’t remember the last time he putted so well. His playing partner, Norman Kerr, hit 42 points to lift the Past President’s Prize proving there is life in the old dog yet!
President Mervyn’s guests gathered at lunchtime on Saturday for refreshments before play. It was two of these guests who came 2nd and 3rd with Charlie Keys taking 2nd from Kevin McGarry on countback with 43 points. The very reliable Harry Carson won the Gross with a 3 over of 70. The Front 9 was won by John Wallace and Back 9 by William Crawford.
 
In the Ladies section, Linda Armstrong on 37 points had 1 point to spare over Carmel Rooney with Gillian Chartres taking 3rd with 34 points.
 
Later, after a beautiful meal provided by Nadine, Noel and the staff, President Mervyn presented a great array of prizes to the winners. A great nights craic was enjoyed by Mervyns’ family and friends.
