Moyola Park Lady Captainís Day a great success

Wednesday, 1 August 2018

THE rain on Saturday may have played havoc out and about, but it didn't dampen the enthusiasm and enjoyment of the day for Lady Captain Teresa O'Hagan, her guests and all those who withstood the challenging conditions at Moyola Park Golf Club where Teresa was hosting her Captain's Day.
While the early starters were able to complete their rounds, with conditions deteriorating and thunderstorms in the area in the afternoon, the difficult decision was made to reduce the competition to nine holes.
When everything was counted and the numbers calculated, Mandy Higgins emerged from a group on 20 points as the winner of the Lady Captain's prize. Jacqueline Evans, also on 20 points, claimed second place and Eva Hastings' 20 points got her third place. Emma Leslie won the gross prize with a brave 82 in the very difficult conditions.
Section winners were Julie McKee with 19 points and Fionnuala Walls, Pat Johnston and Una Watters, all with 18 points.
Lady Captain Teresa and her guests dried out in time for a brilliant evening in the clubhouse for dinner, prize giving and entertainment. A great night was had by all.
Stableford competition
Sunday's Specialist Development Contractors Stableford competition was won by Joe McCloskey (8) with 42 points which included a strong finish with level par on the back nine.
Martin O'Kane (4) shot a level par round of 71 for 40 points and with three under on the back nine secured second from Sean Scullion (23), also on 40 points.
