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.

Captain’s Day Prize Winners

Captain Eugene Rooney finally got his Captain’s Day played at Clogher Valley despite having to close the course, again, on the Saturday afternoon due to the wet weather. Players then returned on Sunday to complete their rounds.
Stan Montgomery was the early leader on Friday with 44 points, with a birdy at the difficult 4th being the highlight of his round. He was passed early on Saturday morning by Martin Ferguson playing off 19. Martin played the front 9 in 2 over 36 with a birdy at the 8th. His back 9 was covered in 5 over 38 with the only blemish coming at the 18 th with a double bogey 6.
That score looked unbeatable until big hitting 17 handicap Paul Armstrong went out on Sunday. Paul shot an excellent 5 over 72 which included birdies at the 2nd and 3rd . The key to his win was keeping double bogeys off his card. A great round by any standards.
Low handicap Harry Carson took the Gross prize with the Front 9 being won by Treasurer Pat Callaghan with 23 points and Back 9 being won by young Dylan Aiken with 25 points.
Raymond Farrell took the Past Captain’s prize with 38 points.
In the Ladies section, which was played 2 weeks earlier, Barbara Kingston won with a superb 40 points from Hazel McDonald in 2nd and Bernie Mohan in 3rd place. Well done Ladies.
