Update 22nd July

CAPTAIN'S PRIZE - Seamus Gallagher’s Captain’s Prize takes place next Sunday, the 28th of July. The format is the traditional 18 hole Strokeplay, with the best scores qualifying for a 9 hole play-off later that evening, with presentation of prizes afterwards. There is often debate within golf clubs as to which prizes are considered “majors”, but there is no such doubt about the Captain's Prize- it is undisputedly the most prestigious competition of the year for the men of the club. There will also be a Scramble on Friday evening, where the emphasis will be very much on the “social” aspect of golf rather than the competitive. Please note that to be eligible to take first place in the Captain’s Prize you must have played three 18 hole qualifier competitions in Boyle this year.

The Captain's Prize to the Ladies was played on Sunday the 21st July. The winning tally was the 70 nett returned by Kathleen Candon, which was a great score on a day of continuous wind and rain. Regina McLoughlin took second place. Mary O’Hara had the best gross score and Joey Mullaney was third. The prizes for this competition will be presented at the main Captain's Prize presentation on Sunday the 28th.

INTERCLUBS - Commiserations to our Mixed Foursomes team who made it all the way to the “finals weekend” of the Connacht Mixed Foursomes tournament, an achievement in itself for a small club such as ours. They were beaten by Athlone Golf Club, who were the eventual winners on the weekend. Congratulations to Athlone.
