Neil Orr takes 1st place…. by a whisker!

This weeks stableford competition had 5 players sharing first place on 38 points, however there can only be one winner and that was Neil Orr!  Neils better back 9 took top spot on the countback to win the event ahead of Neville Cornett, Davy McCrory, Barry Rayner and Davy McRoberts.  Johnathan McNabb had the best Gross score.  Only three 2s recorded, two by Davy McCrory and the other by our winner Neil Orr.  The prizes went to 1st, Gross and those with 2s, this was due to the reduced number of entries in this weeks competition.  Well done to those in the prizes!

There were two matches played in the Team Challenge over the weekend, the Holt Shield team narrowly beat Edenderry 6.5 to 5.5.  The other match was between Brian Nixons Dream Team and the Holt Shield Select which resulted in a draw, six points each.

Loughgall Ladies have organised a table quiz to be held at Hoggs Bar on Friday 8th March, entry is £2 a person and proceeds go to charity.  Anyone and everyone welcome, its not just for the golfers of Loughgall the more the merrier, it should be a good night and its all for a worthy cause.

With promise of some slightly better weather and the evenings staying lighter for longer this is the time to sharpen up your golf before the season starts.  Those who played Loughgall at the weekend will have seen how good the course is, after a prolonged spell of poor weather and just a few days of drier conditions the course is in great shape and will only get better…. providing the wet stuff is kept to a minimum?  So start entering the competitions and remember…. enjoy the game enjoy your golf!
