Castle Dargan Golf Notes – 9th Feb 2015

Wassie’s Chipper Winter League
The final round of the Winter League was played out over the weekend, with the large field enjoying the course in great condition. And following the 8 weeks of competition, it was the team of Benny Deignan, Mick Conroy, Paul McGonigle and Seamus O Connell who kept their noses in front to take the title of Winter League Champions. It was a terrifically consistent display from the team, who kept their high scoring up every week, and weeks 6, 7 and 8 in particular proving crucial. The team posted the best team scores on weeks 6 and 7, and only one team bettered their total by one point on the final weekend. Benny Deignan was in terrific form throughout the event, posting three 25 point tallies, and two 24’s. Mick Conroy also scored heavily, contributing the highest individual score on any weekend with a fantastic 27 points on week 3, and also adding a 26 and a 25. Paul McGonigle was very consistent, and came in over the last 3 weekends with crucial scores when 3 cards were counting for each team. And Seamus O Connell really delivered for his team, particularly on the last week where he contributed his own best score of the competition to ensure his team stayed in front. 406 points ended up being the winning total, and closest to that tally with 399 points was the team of Chris Kilcullen, Aiden McGoldrick, Paul Coughlan and John Sexton. Again consistency was key to this team, with most of their scores being in the 20’s, and the team scoring heavily over the last 3 weekends. In third place with a total score of 395 points, was the team of Darragh Connolly, Mick O Hara, Alan Taffe and Fergus Torsney, and although they posted the best team score on the last weekend, it was just not enough to muscle their way into the top two positions. Well done to all the teams involved, which included members and non-members alike. And the prize giving for this event, kindly sponsored by Wassie’s Chipper, will take place following the Captains Drive in on March 17th.

Castle Dargan Golf Notes - 26/01/2015

Winter League

The leading individual scorer over the second last weekend of the Wassie's Chipper Winter League was Andy Kearns with a very impressive 26 points. Michael Conroy and Kevin Conlon were just behind with 25 points each, while Benny Deignan, Ronnie Conlon, Paul Coughlan, John Treacy and Mickey Beatty all contributed 24 points to their teams. Only one weekend remains, so it is vital that all teams get all their players out on the course, as every score could prove crucial.

AGM

The AGM of Castle Dargan Golf Club was held last Tuesday the 20th of January with a good attendance present on the night. President Dermot Fallon addressed the crowd initially, followed by treasurer Alan Martin, who reported on a very good financial year for the club in 2014. Alan was thanked for his excellent work as treasurer as he steps down this year, with Kevin McCarthy taking over his position for 2015. Captain Dave Donovan gave his address, and thanked all who helped to make his year such a great success. Special mention was given by Dave, and by Dermot earlier, for those who lost loved ones during the year. Dave finished off his address by presenting incoming Captain Kevin Conlon with his jacket for 2015, and wishing him all the best for the coming year.

Castle Dargan Golf Notes – 12th Jan 2015

Wassie’s Chipper Winter League
The Winter League continued last weekend with the competition hotting up now, and 3 scores to count from each team for last weekend and the last two rounds also. Remember, each team member must contribute a minimum of 3 cards to their teams total over the 8 weeks of the competition, so make sure all players post a score each week, as it could be very important.

Top scorers last weekend were the team of Benny Deignan, Mick Conroy, Paul McGonagle and Seamus O Connell with an impressive 65 points, but as mentioned, scores may change after the final week to accommodate the 3 scores required from each player, so even for those teams off the pace just now, it’s still all to play for. Next in the scoring stakes last weekend were Darragh Connolly, Mick O Hara, Alan Taffe and Fergus Torsney with 59 points, while there were 3 teams that posted 58 points – Ray O Grady, Fergal Kelly, Adrian McGoldrick and Gerry Teague / Fergal Collery, Dave Donovan, Donal McLoughlin and Micky Beatty / Chris Kilcullen, Aiden McGoldrick, Paul Coughlan and John Sexton.

Club AGM
The AGM of Castle Dargan Golf Club will take place on Tuesday 13th January in the Coach House room, Castle Dargan, at 8.30pm. All members are invited to attend.
