Dunfanaghy Golf Club: Caravaner’s Classic a big hit!

first_imgDunfanaghy Golf Club NotesWell done and congratulations to Cathal Daly and Tony Bonar who made such a fantastic job of organising the Caravaner’s Classic this year. While most of the country suffered from wet and windy conditions, Dunfanaghy Golf Club was bathed in glorious sunshine throughoutSaturday where over 40 teams enjoyed a great day’s golf.“The Caravaner’s” is one of the most popular events of the year where much needed funds are raised for the club. Also, a proportion of the funds are donated to one or more charities. This year Cathal and Tony decided to donate a proportion of the funds to two local charities, namely the Dunfanaghy Tidy Towns Committee and “ACT”, a charity which raises money to support children in Donegal affected by terminal illness. Scoring on the day matched the weather where the winning team of E Gallagher, R Shields, M Dunne and P Bonner came in with a sparkling score of 101 points. In second place was local team of Cornie McMullan, Joe Terry, Peadar Curran and Liam McBride while third place went to Brian McGinley, Kieran McTaggart, Rory McLaughlin and Hugh Ferry.At the presentation Captain Denis Martin thanked Tony and Cathal for the monumental effort they put into organising the event. Cathal also thanked all those who helped in staging the event and in particular the staff on the course and in the clubhouse.Competition Results: Wednesday Open Stableford – 17 th August 2016Neil McGinley 41ptsBrian Long Knock 39ptsNiall McCormick 32 Gross PtsStephen Roulston O/Seas 38ptsCaravaners Classic 20161 st Pat Bonner, Portsalon. 101pts Eugene Gallagher, PortsalonRaymond Shiels D/FMichael Dunne, Portsalon2 nd Joe Terry, D/F 100 pts Peader Curran, D/FCornie McMullan D/FLiam McBride D/F3 rd Rory McLaughlin, NWGC 98ptsKieran McTaggart, F/WilliamBrian McGinley, D/FHugh Ferry, D/F4 th John Chambers, COD 98ptsNigel Doherty, D/FCheryl Chambers, CODJanice Doherty, D/F5 th Paul Wallace, Greencastle 98pts BOTGarth Patterson, PortnooDavid Black, PortstewartMary Wallace, Foyle6 th Bill McCallion, D/F 97ptsDomonic Bogues, F/WilliamSiobhan Bogues, D/FPaula McCallion, D/F7 th Chris Marriott, D/F 96ptsScott Caithness, D/FKnox Wilson, D/FWilliam Caithness, D/F8 th Killian McGinley, D/F 96 BOTNiall McCormick, GrangeJames McCormick, GrangeMark McCormick, D/FLadies Robyn McConnell, D/F 93ptsNatalie Cummings, D/FRosie Agnew, RedcastleMaggie Logue, D/FGents Longest Drive – Peader CurranGents Nearest the Pin – Paul SmythLadies Longest Drive – Cheryl ChambersLadies Nearest the Pin – Mary LaffertyAugust Monthly Medal – 21 st Aug 20161 st Paul Burton 612 nd Tim Ryan 63Gross John Hanna 703 rd Derek Porter 63 BOTCategory Paddy Hegarty 70Events for the Week Ahead:On Friday 26 th August, we will be hosting an Open 3BBB.
