Friday Open 18 Hole Stableford

This week’s Friday Open Stableford Competition threw up a mixture of conditions and they probably favoured those players that went out early in the day as the wind picked up and the rain arrived as the morning progressed. First place was taken by Pat Togher with an impressive score of 41 points. Pat put together a round that consisted of 9 pars, six on the front nine and three on the back nine including four-in-a-row from the third to the sixth as well as adding three birdies. The first of the birdies came on the par four seventh and was followed by back-to-back birdies on the fifteenth and sixteenth holes to complete his score of 41 points.

Second place was taken by Larry Kelly from County Sligo Golf Club with a score of 37 points. Larry’s got off to a great start by sinking his par putt on the first hole and completed his front nine by adding a further four pars including two-in-a-row on the eighth and ninth holes. With the weather changing he did well to stay consistent on the back nine holes to ensure that he signed for his score of 37 points.

Third place was taken by Louis Walker from Greencastle Golf Club in Donegal with a score of 35 points. Louis played consistent golf throughout his round and added pars on the eleventh and fourteenth holes to ensure he did enough to take third place with a score of 35 points.

Val Harte Cup Qualifying Strokeplay Competition

Saturday’s Val Harte Cup Qualifying Strokeplay Competition was played in similar conditions to Friday’s competition but with little or no wind to contend with. The standard of golf played on the day was very high with the top three players only separated by three strokes.

Second place was taken by Fintan Monaghan, one stroke back with a score of 66 strokes. Fintan scored five pars over the course of his eighteen holes with four of them coming on the front nine including three-in-a-row from the second to the fourth hole inclusive and the remaining par coming on the back nine to complete a round of 66.

Sligo Golf AcademySaturday’s Sligo Golf Academy 18 Hole Stableford competition saw clear blue skies and glorious sunshine grace Strandhill Golf Club which meant that the standard of scoring remained high with the top five places only separated by five points . First place went to Frank Cosgrove with a score of 41 points. Frank played consistent golf throughout his round scoring back to back pars on the second and third holes and adding a further par on the par three seventeenth hole. The icing on the cake for Frank’s round though had to be the impressive eagle he scored on the par four thirteenth hole which ensured that he signed for his winning score of 41 points.

Second place was taken by Peter McGrath, one point behind Frank, with a score of 40 points. Peter has been on an impressive run of form lately, adding today’s victory to his victory in Easter Sunday’s Apple Green 18 Hole Stableford competition two weeks ago. Today’s round saw him manage an excellent ten pars, including four in a row from the ninth to the twelfth holes while also adding a birdie on the par three seventeenth hole on his way to signing for his score of 40 points.

Third place was taken by Bill Cashel with a score of 39 points. Bill played consistently throughout his round and managed to accumulate no less than eleven pars, six coming on his front nine and the remaining five coming on the back nine, scoring three-in-a-row on two occassions from the first to the third holes and the thirteenth to the fifteenth holes.

1st Frank Cosgrove (26) 41pts
2nd Peter McGrath (14) 40pts
