Captains’ Drive-in at Clogher Valley Golf Club.

We were delighted to have 30 golfers tee off with a shotgun start. Cold wind & snow flurries didn’t hamper the scores with a tie for first place. Count back saw the winning team of Linda Armstrong, Maurice Coalter, Tony Fee & Mervyn Spratt named ahead of second place Andy Armstrong, Ian Farrell, Mervyn Farrell & Andy Little.

Everyone enjoyed a delicious warming meal in the Clubhouse afterwards. A great start to the golfing year for Captain Seamus & Lady Captain Gillian!

Ladies ‘Get Into Golf’ Taster Sessions in 2018

Golf is an almost unique sport, combining periods of intense concentration and skill with much longer periods of walking around beautiful landscapes enjoying the fresh air.

There’s no better sport for bringing people together and, with its winning combination of exercise, personal challenges, competition and social interaction, golf is the perfect tonic for good health and happiness.

Clogher Valley Golf Club will be announcing details of our 2018 Ladies ‘Get Into Golf’ Taster sessions in the next few days … watch this space!!

Why get into golf? Because it’s exercising while socialising. Catch up with friends, make new friends and have a bit of friendly competition.
Who is it for? It’s a game for all ages and abilities. Plus its unique handicapping system allows people of different abilities to play and compete together.
Is there a cheap option? Taster sessions and beginner courses are not as expensive as you might think, and there are many available across the country.
Do I need my own equipment? The majority of beginner courses will provide equipment, and clubs are available to rent at most golf courses.
Can I take it to another level? You can play competitive golf at club, county and national level and turn professional.
Is there a disability option? PGA pros are trained with the skills to coach a range of disabilities.
Is there a family option? Golf is a sport for the whole family as you can learn to play and compete together.

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 Crawford’s Quarry Competition

Played in damp conditions but the course held up remarkably well. Players all wondering how the staff managed to keep the fairways looking like they’d been manicured. The greens were like lightning and the pin positions were reflected in the scoring. For the first time this season the winning score came in at less than 40pts. That made Raymond (Green Keeper) really smile. Where will he have the pins for next week’s competition?

Competition results:-


1st – Joe Davis 37pts on count back

2nd – Eugene Rooney 37pts

3rd – Winston Burke 37pts

Gross – Andy Armstrong (Capt)

Back 9 – Kevin King

Front 9 – Derek Wright

2nd – Linda Armstrong

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.
