McGowan takes Ladies crown

Jean McGowan was the big winner last weekend in Athlone as she scooped the Lady Captain’s prize ahead of Bernie Watson.

  This Sunday, the Ladies Junior Cup team takes on Roscommon in the Connacht semi-final.

  Margaret Henry won last week’s Eileen McKeown Memorial at Castlerea Golf Club with 71 points ahead of Catriona Newman in second place.

  Today (July 14th) Maura Kelly and Valerie Callaghan represent the club in the Connacht District Australian Spoons final in Ballina.

  In Roscommon, the Lady Captain’s prize was won by Sheila Fallon with Joan Hannon in second place.

  The men’s 9-hole competition was won by Kieran Madden with 20 points while the ladies equivalent was taken by Mary O’Keefe with 21.

  Carmel Stritch was on fire once again in Carrick-on-Shannon winning the Oarsman Maher Cup with 35 points ahead of Phil Emmett on 33. Meanwhile, Junior Golf summer lessons began last night (Wednesday) and will continue each week.

  There were plenty of winners during Boyle’s Open Week – in fact too many to mention here – but we’ll do our best! On Monday, Paddy Egan and Tish Perry were the big winners, Regina McLoughlin and Ross Andrew were Tuesday’s victors, Wednesday belonged to Ross Andrew and Claire Cryan, Thursday saw Michael Bannon and Ruth Hogg victorious, Ruth Hogg was hogging the limelight again on Friday along with Eamon O’Loughlin and finally on Saturday, Ross Andrew and Gerry O’Hara were winners. Prizes presented tonight (Thursday) at 9 pm in the clubhouse.

  Finally this week, there was no power or king able to prevent Sarah Collins winning the Lady Captain’s prize last week in Strokestown. Sarah rose above Fidelma (Power) and Helena (King) and took home the major prize.
