April 1st 2018
It was a lovely Easter weekend and with the competition played over Saturday and Sunday, nice that the weather threw up two fairly similar days. With the bulk of players on the course on Saturday it provided most of our prize winners.
Coming out on top was young Sean Hyland (I’m fairly sure I will be saying that many times in the future) with a great score of 41 Pts with a birdie on the 9th getting him to 22 Pts and a further 19 on the way home to complete his card. Second was Robbie O’Donnell with the best of 3 40’s posted with a steady round from start to finish and 20 Pts on each 9. Donal Boyle was third with 40 Pts and a round of 3 under and Terence Gallagher was 4th also with 40 Pts. The 9’s went to Noel Maguire with a super 24 Pts and Jim O’Donnell with 20 Pts. Well done to all our prize winners and thanks to Declan and all at the Bayview for the sponsorship. Next Sunday’s competition is sponsored by The Viking House and next Saturday we have our Captain’s Drive In, draw likely at 10 am, full details to follow. Also at our Captain’s Drive In is the first draw in our 2018 100+ Club and with a small number of squares still available make sure to get your square now, you can text Declan or Donal to get on the board. Happy Easter to all members and friends of Cruit Island!!
