Midsummer Classic 18 Hole Scramble

Sunday saw the staging of the inaugural Midsummer Classic 18 Hole Team Scramble Event and it turned out to be a massive success with a large number of teams competing for some fantastic prizes. The clubhouse was buzzing all day with everyone asking, “Has there been a hole in one yet?” The focus was on the 17th hole throughout the day as player after player tried their best to win a golf buggy for themselves by scoring a hole in one. Quite a few players came extremely close with Padraig Watters just trickling past the edge of the hole and Anthony Skeffington just coming up short with their tee shots. There was a festive atmosphere in both the clubhouse and on the course as the teams also posed for team selfies which were then displayed in the clubhouse over the course of the day, each one generating a laugh and lively conversation as they were displayed on the TV in the bar.

The clubhouse was full of competitors and locals from the Lisheen Show as the last of the teams finished their rounds at 8:15pm and it was all system’s go to get the scores tallied for the presentation.

Captain Michael Phelan’s Captain’s Day

Captain Michael PhelanMichael Phelan hosted his Captain’s Day on Saturday with family, friends and members of Strandhill Golf Club as well as Captain Kevin Conlon & President Dermot Fallon from Castle Dargan Golf Club. The golf got under way early with the first trio teeing off at 6:50am and it was the players who tee’d off before 8am that set the standard for the day. Jimmy Giblin was in the first trio and was the first to enter the clubhouse with a low score of 66 nett, followed ten minutes later by Michael Kivlehan with a score of 63 nett. Con Hegarty followed thirty minutes later, also with a 63 nett to take the joint clubhouse lead.

Ronnie Conlon posted a score of 65 nett to overtake Jimmy Giblin and take third place followed swiftly by Brian Henry, who posted a score of 66 nett to tie with Jimmy Giblin. Mark Gerrity rounded out the top six from the last trio to play, also with a score of 66 nett. David Lindsay and Noel McHale posted scores of 68 nett, followed closely by Dessie Timbs, Paul Cox and Michael Keane who all posted scores of 69 nett. Eddie Rush, Pat Lee, Enda Halloran, Colin Foran, Joe Hargadon, Patsy Gallagher, Michael I Henry, Colm Rochford and Frank Gannon all posted a score of 70 nett while Gerry Fox, Frank Carroll & John O’Donnell posted a score of 70 nett to make up the twenty one qualifiers who would take part in the final nine holes that would decide the winner.

With conditions completely different from the earlier part of the day as the winds increased significantly, it became a case of hold onto what you have from the earlier round and try not to make too many mistakes. Dessie Timbs posted the lowest score for his nine with a score of 32.5 nett, while David Lindsay and Brian Henry posted scores of 34 nett each to set the standard.

Con Hegarty and Ronnie Conlon fought to keep their places in the top three but dropped shots on important holes to make the job a little more challenging. Michael Kivlehan was in contention coming up the eighteenth but ended up with a difficult lie from his tee shot. This left him with little only one option for his second shot, a ball up the right hand side of the green keepers shed toward the first tee. What looked like a good shot to begin with, ended up hitting the bin on the first tee and the ball came to rest under the seat leaving Michael with no shot.

Con Hegarty was next to play and he played a shot which turned to be too low to clear the Green Keepers shed, ending up out of bounds. Michael Kivlehan got a ruling on his lie and got to drop his ball away from the seat, giving him a chance to reach the green in three. It wasn’t meant to be though as he he finished the hole to sign for a 27 hole total of 100.5 nett, half a shot behind the Captain’s Prize winner, Brian Henry who shot a 27 hole total nett score of 100.
