Lochlann Conboy continued his great form with his 5th win away from home this year, partnered this time by Interclub newcomer Mark O’Donohoe. Jim Suffin and Brian Furey had an early win on the 14th in  Boyle, Gary Carty and Michael Simon had to go a bit further to hole 16 but always looked in control. 

The matches were called in at this point but Karl Keenan and Paul Connolly had looked like they would provide a 4th win, having come from 3 holes down on the front 9 in Castle Dargan to being in front when they were called in on the 16th. The team are set to play Rosses  Point in the next round on Monday the 6th of September.

Update 22nd August 2021

CAPTAIN'S PRIZE - Jonathan Egan’s Captain’s Prize to the men was held on Sunday the 15th of August with a very strong field taking part despite clashing with the Roscommon under 20s game in Dublin. The events of the weekend commenced with a very successful and social Captain’s Scramble on Friday evening with presentation afterwards. It was great to see a number of teenagers taking part in the competition. The Captain's Prize to the Ladies was competed for on Saturday.


The winner of the men’s Captain's Prize for 2021 was Jason Beirne who was the joint leader (with 5 others) with a nett 65 going into the 9 hole playoff. It was an extremely tight finish with Jason just edging Lorcan Egan into second place by half a shot. The presentation of prizes was held immediately after the playoff. Jonathan Egan congratulated all the winners and thanked several members who had contributed to the very successful year the club has been having on all fronts.

The club ran a small fundraiser connected with predicting the winner of the Captain’s Prize and have since donated the proceeds of 200 euro to the “Cycle for Sandra”, the Hospice fundraiser that commemorates our much missed former Lady Captain, the late Sandra McCrann.

 

RESULTS - CAPTAINS PRIZE - 1st Jason Beirne, 2nd Lorcan Egan, Gross Brendan Gaffney, 3rd Se├ín Purcell, 18 nett Conor Hamill, Past Captain Charlie O’Donnell, Seniors’ Prize Michael Bannon, Category 0-13 Michael Simon, 14-20 John McGuinn, 21+ Mark Feehan. 1st 9 Barry Greaney, 2nd 9 Ryan Daly, 3rd 9 Martin Daly, Student Prize Cillian Doyle, Visitors’ Prize Paddy Egan,

Update August 8th

RESULTS - The August Bank Holiday Shambles competition was won by the team of Mandy Toolan, Fiona Keenan, Cillian Doyle and Karl Keenan with a score of 124 points.

2nd - Liam Mullaney, Pat Conroy, Paddy McLoughlin, Michael McHale 123 points 3rd (on countback) - Conor Hamill, Lochlainn Conboy, Sean Purcell, Michael McHale -123 points.

CAPTAINS PRIZE - Jonathan Egan’s Captains Day takes place on August 15th this year. To be eligible to win first place in the Mens’ Captains Prize competition you must have played in one 18 hole qualifying competition in the club this year, have a valid WHS handicap, and be in “good standing” as regards membership. There will be a Scramble on the Friday evening beforehand open to all club members, men and women, please have names in for 6, with shotgun start 6.30. Food on Captains Day itself will be a barbecue, with the meat being very kindly sponsored once again by Club Member Tom Kearney’s business, Quality Meats, Wine St Car Park, Sligo. The competition will be the usual 18 hole Stroke with a 9 hole playoff, with presentation immediately afterwards. There will be 1 or 2 tough pins on the day! It would be great to see a good turnout, the best of luck to everyone who takes part.

CAPTAINS PRIZE TO THE LADIES - This competition had been due to be played on Sunday the 8th but will be rescheduled. The Lady Presidents Prize to the Men was competed for on the 8th, but was still ongoing at the time of going to press, results to follow during the week.

INTERCLUB - Well done to Sean Heslin’s Jack O’Sullivan Cup team who had a great away victory over Carrick On Shannon Golf Club during the week. Martin Wynne and Conor Hamill won very early in Boyle on the 15th. Lee McKillen and Lochlainn Conboy continued their unbeaten run in their first interclub season winning on the 15th away in Carrick On Shannon. Lorcan Egan and Padraig O’Connell were 3 down after 9 holes in Boyle but clawed their way back hole by hole and won their match with Padraig’s last putt on the 18th, thereby clinching the overall win for Boyle. The 2 remaining matches in Carrick, which were the pairings of Brendan Gaffney and David Gallagher and Jim Suffin and team captain Sean Heslin were called in at this point, but could well have provided another win or 2. This team are proving themselves to be a force to be reckoned with consecutive victories over Rosses Point and Carrick On Shannon. Best of luck in Round 3 to all.
