Castle Dargan Golf Notes  20th April 2014

Good Friday Scramble
Our annual 3 ball scramble which takes place every Good Friday proved to be another huge success this year, with 35 teams taking part and enjoying the current great spell of weather. The course is in fantastic condition at the moment and is continuing to go from strength to strength every year. With such a large number taking part, and attracting visitors from many our neighbouring courses, the competition was always going to be tough, and following the days play, it was the three players with considerable local knowledge who headed the field. Steven Smith, Ray O Grady and Kevin Conlon were the victors, ending up with a superb score of 57 nett. Michael Flynn, Benny Connolly and Maynard O Boyle came in just behind in second place with 57.8 nett. It was an all family affair in third place with local member Merv Keegan being joined by his parents Oliver and Mary Keegan from Longford Golf Club on a score of 59 nett. In fourth place with 60 nett was Kevin McCarthy, Jim Mc Loughlin and Paul McGonagle. And in fifth place on 60.3 nett it was David Lindsay, Gary Lindsay and another Strandhill member who's very familiar with Castle Dargan - current Darren Clarke Cup holder Dessie Timbs.

In the ladies section Anita Carty, Marie Leydon and Pauline Lennon took the spoils. And Anita also took the prize for nearest the pin, with Ann Mullen winning the longest drive. While in the mens section, Stevie Smith smashed his way to the longest drive award, with Chris O Neill proving the most accurate in the nearest the pin competition. Many thanks must go to our sponsor and a great friend of the golf club at Castle Dargan, Leitrim Chrystal, as there were some very happy winners going home with their beautiful prizes after the presentations were completed.

Many thanks also to all of the visitors and teams who participated on the day and made it once again such an enjoyable event in the golfing calendar. Castle Dargan looks forward to seeing you back on the fairways again in the very near future.

Darren Clarke Cup Qualifier
The full results from the qualifying rounds of the Darren Clarke Cup will appear in next weeks notes, along with the draw for the knockout stages. While the qualifiers for the Castle Dargan Cup take place for members over the coming weekend.

Castle Dargan Golf Notes 14th April 2014

Results
Saturday 12th April  Club Competition
Ciaran Cryan is becoming something of a Saturday specialist after notching his second Saturday victory in a row, this time with an excellent 39 points.

Sunday 13th April  Anderco Safety (Golfer of the Year)
A good field took to the course for the first Strokeplay Golfer of the Year event last Sunday. And it was Adrian Walls (17) who emerged the victor after a very close fought event, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd having to be separated by a countback. While the course is in excellent condition ahead of the busy Easter weekend coming up, the strong winds made things difficult for the golfers, with the long par 4's at 8, 14, 17 and 18 becoming difficult to reach in two for all but the biggest of hitters. However, Adrian played very steady golf throughout the day to record an excellent score of 71 nett and take the title. John Torsney (26) matched the score with another super 71 nett, but was pipped on the countback on the back nine. And while Stevie Smith (7) no doubt enjoyed the opening 17 holes of his return to the fairways at Castle Dargan, he will probably want to forget about the 18th, having stood on the tee box at just 2 over par. However, he will have to console himself with 3rd place on the podium on this occasion, after finishing with another 71 nett.

Good Friday Open Scramble
Our Open 3 ball scramble will take place on Good Friday, the 18th of April, with any combination of ladies, gents or mixed teams eligible. As this competition always proves very popular, early booking of tee times is advised, and entry is just €60 per team.

Castle Dargan Golf Notes  7th April 2014

Results
Saturday 5th April  Club Competition
On Saturday, the winner of the club competition, and continuing his great form from last year, was Ciaran Cryan

Sunday 6th April  Supervalue Ballisadare
Andrew Kearns is the man in form at the moment, as he notched up his second competition victory in as many weeks with a very impressive 40 points on Sunday last. This performance looks all the more impressive when you consider it came after banking his first victory of the year last week with 42 points, and subsequently being cut 2 ½ shots. In second place was James Kearns, who also posted a second consecutive podium finish this week with 37 points. And in third place was James Davey, who put together a superb front nine score of 24 points. While he mightn’t have been able to maintain this scoring rate for the remainder of the round, finishing with 35 points, we should still expect to see plenty more from James this year.

Fixtures
Next weekend brings a Single Stableford Club Competition on Saturday the 12th of April. While on Sunday we have the first Strokeplay Golfer of the Year event taking place, sponsored by Anderco Safety.

Captains Drive In

Castle Dargan Captains Mr Dave Donovan(2nd from right in pic) and Mrs Claire Reynolds(2nd from left in pic) held their drive in on St Patrick’s Day last in front of a very large crowd of friends and well wishers.Vice Captains Mr Kevin Conlon(left in pic) and Mrs Joan O Dowd(right in pic) were on hand to welcome everyone to the event, and introduce the incoming Captains.And there was some excellent entertainment in the form of traditional Irish music and set dancing before the ceremonial drives were hit. When it was time to step up to the mark, our Captains certainly delivered with two smashing drives down the centre of the fairway. Afterwards food was served to all and there was music to entertain the guests, lasting well on into the evening. And it was fitting that so many of the officers, members, family and friends attended and made it a special and memorable day for both Dave and Claire.
