Golfers battle on in poor weather

I’m sure most of you were glued to the action from Augusta last weekend. I’m sure you all felt sorry for those players losing their way on the notorious greens and at Amen Corner.

  I’m sure your sympathy ebbed away as you realised the weather on Roscommon golf courses would be much worse than anything poor oul Jordan or Rory had to contend with!

  In Athlone, Conor Quilty (Knights of Columbanus), Alacoque O’Connor (Ladies 3 Ts Competition) and Bernie Stapleton (12-hole competition) were the big winners of last weekend.

   Up in Carrick-on-Shannon, the Spring League concluded with Pat and Jim King, Adrian Beirne and Andy Connellan holding onto top spot by four points! Meanwhile the ladies Winter Alliance ended last weekend with Frances Molloy finishing first on Captain’s Day.

  In Castlerea, Mamie Creaton won the Paul Lafferty-sponsored ladies competition while Gerry O’Keeffe took the men’s prize.

  Down the road at Roscommon Golf Club, Francie Grehan won last week’s men’s competition while Mary Seymour was victorious in the ladies’. In the men’s over 55s, T. Costello came out on top while G. Hoban took the senior ladies by storm.

  Finally, in Boyle, Owen Garvin and Michael Costello won last Sunday’s Holmpatrick Cup while Brendan Gaffney took the Men’s Open on Thursday.
