Friday Open 15 Hole Stableford Competition

Friday’s Open Stableford competition was played in blustery conditions with showers on and off throughout the day but the quality of golf was high with some good scores returned. John McHugh came out on top with a score of 33 points in a round containing no less than eight pars, including three-in-a-row from the eleventh to the thirteenth holes.

Last week’s Friday Open winner, Dave Moriarty, took second place on a score of 31 points. Dave has hit a rich vein of form of late and played some very good golf on Friday to sign for his score which contained 6 pars, evenly distributed between the front nine and back six holes.

1st John McHugh (13) 33 pts
2nd Dave Moriarty (18) 31 pts

Saturday 15 Hole Club Stableford Competition

Saturday’s 15 Hole Club Stableford competition was played in conditions that started out blustery and continued to worsen as the day went on with strong winds and heavy rain. Scoring was very close with the top 7 places only covered by 3 points and the top two only being separated by virtue of a countback. David Lindsay continued his good form and built on his second place finish in last Saturday’s competition by taking first place this week with a score of 33 points. David wasn’t fazed by the conditions, recording six pars and adding birdies on the par five fifth and par three fourteenth holes.
