Strandhill Golf Club Notes 16/7/17 – Men’s Branch.

On a very windy day on Strandhill Links the members came out in force to play in Mr Leo Logan’s Presidents Day on Saturday 15th July. Scoring was difficult with the gusting winds in the morning and the drizzly rain in the afternoon. John White took top honours from Gertrude Crummy they both had 39 points with John having the better back nine. John was a very popular winner and he lifted the beautiful Crystal Lamp presented by Leo at the evening festivities. A great night was had by all and this was testament to the popularity of Leo during his presidency.

It was a busy week in Strandhill Golf club this week as the Connacht Sheild team kicked off the week by advancing to the semi-finals with a victory over Carrick-On-Shannon. The two matches that were to be played in Carrick-On-Shannon were postponed due to bad weather but victory in the three matches that were played at Strandhill made rescheduling the two away matches unnecessary.
