Green Valley – Stableford
1st Declan Kelly (12) 41pts
2nd Nick Caulfield (6) 39pts
3rd Richi Hurley (6) 39pts
1st Joe Peters (23) 42pts
2nd Geoff King (17) 36pts
3rd John Dearden (21) 35pts
2’s: Nick Caulfield (two), Kevin Blake, Russell Gilroy.
We had a very high standard today with some in the A Flight who had beaten their handicaps not even getting a look in for the prizes. I am not exactly sure why, as the course was still playing long after the rain on the previous evening, maybe it is just that our golfers are getting better!
In the A Flight Declan Kelly improved on his normal high standard and was the winner with an excellent forty one points. Nick Caulfield came in second place with thirty nine, beating Richi Hurley on a count back.
We had an even better score in the B Flight from Joe Peters who has certainly found his form of late, being the winner today with forty two points, a score which will take his handicap down a few shots. Geoff King took second place with an even par round and John Dearden took the third one point further back.

Treasure Hill – Stableford
We were again joined by our friends from the PFGS here at Treasure Hill for what was a hot but very enjoyable day for golf. Although this course is now getting busy we teed off early and were around quickly.
Once again the course won out and although we had a big group out and two divisions none of our players managed to beat or play to their handicaps. I think now many of our players regard it as a challenge to beat it!
In the A Flight, Joe McArdle came out the winner with thirty three points and Nick Caulfield took second place on a count back from Garry Barling, both with thirty one points.
In the B Flight, Donal McGuigan had the best overall score of the day and was the winner with thirty four points. Joe McLoughlin and Ted Morris had thirty two and took second and third respectively.
For a course with difficult par-3’s we actually had five 2’s today with Joe McArdle, Donal McGuigan, Phelim Moran, Joe McLoughlin and Dale Walton having one each.

Eastern Star – Stableford
1st John Kelly (25) 33pts
2nd Joe McArdle (14) 31pts
3rd Jon Batty (7) 31pts
4th Phelim Moran (10) 30pts
We were away early again here at Eastern Star and after all the rain on the previous day the course was soft and playing long, which seemed to affect the scores and again the course won with none of our group managing to play to their handicaps.
John Kelly took the honors on the day and was the winner with thirty three points. Joe McArdle placed second with thirty one points, edging out Jon Batty on count back. We then had three players on thirty points with both Daryl Burkett and Nick Caulfield losing out on the count back to Phelim Moran who took the fourth and last place on the podium.
Although Theresa Connolly didn’t get in the prizes she got the only ‘2’ of the day which netted her a very nice payout.
