Michael McKevitt won the Singles Stableford competition held over the weekend of October 22 and 23 .
A four-point haul from a par on the par five seventh helped McKevitt complete the front nine in 18pts. Down the back nine he had three consecutive three-point holes from the 11th and then parred the 16th for four points as he came home in 21pts for an overall total of 39pts.
That back nine haul proved crucial as the overall honours were decided on countback with McKevitt edging out Tommy Renaghan for top spot with Renaghan needing the back six countback to see off Brian Gaughran for second.
Gregory McCaughey (8) took Division 1, Ruairi McMahon (13) claimed Division 2 and Simon Ryan (21) was the Division 3 winner with Jason Murphy producing the best gross score of the competition.
Visitors took two of the four prizes on offer in last Wednesday’s Open Singles Stableford sponsored by Deluxe Bathrooms. Ian Moore (7) from Clandeboye took Division 1 while Stuart Trotter (24) from Mayobridge won Division 3. The other prizes were claimed by home players Edward Lawrence (21), who won Division 2, and Colin Roche who took the gross prize.
