Cairns hangs tough to take first place

On a course playing long and tough after last week’s heavy rain, Martin Cairns showed his toughness to take first prize in Sunday’s Turkey’s Competition which was played over 14 holes.

The 11 handicapper’s excellent score of 34pts was enough to pip the ultra-competitive Michael Keating by one point with Brian Ward, Jim Rowland and Oliver McGinnity a shot further back on 32pts.

There were also prizes for the five players who finished on 31pts plus three who came home with 30pts.

The results were:

Blackmore wins as Rogers drops to one

As a former goalkeeper Richie Blackmore was pretty good at keeping the score down on the football pitch but he showed on Sunday that he knows how to score on the golf course.

The 14 handicapper shot an impressive 42pts, scoring on every hole, to take Sunday’s Turkey’s competition in the face of stiff competition from some of the club’s single figure players.

On the front nine Blackmore went to the turn in 20 points, thanks mainly to four straight pars from the sixth, and then produced back to back pars on 12 and 13 before parring three of the last four holes for a back nine of 22 points and an overall score of 42pts.

That was good enough to see off the challenge of two handicapper Eddie Rogers who recorded an impressive 40 points from a gross round of two-under-par 70. His round included four birdies at the 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th and just two bogies at the 6th and 16th. Although it wasn’t good enough to take the top prize it was enough to get Eddie down to a one-handicap for the first time in his long and distinguished career and everybody at the club sends their congratulations on this notable achievement.

Teenager Josh Mackin is another player heading in the same direction and the five handicapper continued his excellent season with a score of 39pts to take third on countback from Maurice Soraghan who has managed to keep his golf game together despite all his great and time-consuming work on the Course Committee.

Also making the prize list were John Keane, Peter McCaughey, Terry Conlon, Brendan Reilly and Jim Dwyer.

A day of good scoring was reflected in the CSS of 71 (37pts).

A blistering back nine was good enough for Ciaran Traynor to land top prize in Sunday’s Turkey competition

After going out in level-par with 18 points the five-handicapper shot 23 points heading for home to finish on 41 points and just pip teenager Padraig Fallon on countback.

The experienced Michael Coburn was a shot further behind on 40pts while Martin Byrne finished fourth on 39pts, one point ahead of Billy Cairns.
