Jack O’Sullivan

Strandhill Golf Club played their first match in this year’s Jack O’Sullivan competition last Thursday night against Strokestown Golf Club in very cold and windy conditions. Strandhill were the away team and played three of their matches in Strokestown and two at home.

All of the matches were tight affairs both at home and away and both both home teams managed to win their games, one on sixteen and the second on eighteen while the final match in Strokestown had to go down the nineteenth hole to decide it. Strandhill won the deciding hole and progress to the next round which will most likely be against Ballinamore.

Well done to all involved and thanks to the brave souls who came out to cheer on the lads on the night.

Over 55’s Connacht Final Victory For Strandhill

Strandhill Golf Club took a 4 -1 lead from last week’s first leg at home  into the second leg of their final against Loughrea on Saturday. The second leg was played in Loughrea and Loughrea fought back to tie the match up by winning with a score of 4 -1. That meant that one pairing from each team had to go into a sudden death playoff for the match. Having won their game, Tom Crowley & Declan Rooney were the obvious choice and they didn’t disappoint as they closed out the match on the first playoff hole with a birdie from Declan Rooney.

This is a fantastic achievement from our over 55’s team who played impeccably throughout the competition to secure another title for Strandhill Golf Club.

Well done to Team Captain Declan McCabe and the team for their achievement. You did Strandhill Golf Club proud.

Course Development & 50/50 Draw

As you are aware, the first phase of the planned course development got underway early this year as the course bunker complex underwent dramatic changes with the addition of new bunkers and the removal of superfluous ones. This work was financed completely from money raised through the 50/50 draw as well as from donations.

It is hoped to continue the final part of the bunker work this coming October and in order to do this, we need you support. We are asking all of our members to help support the development by signing up for the monthly 50/50 draw. It only costs €8 per month and can be paid by monthly direct debit.

You can download and print off a copy of the direct debit form from here. The form can be completed and handed into the office or golf shop. Forms are also available from the office.

With your help, we can continue to climb the Top 100 Golf Course rankings and make Strandhill Golf Club the jewel in the crown of Sligo golf.
