first_imgDunfanaghy Golf Club NotesIt was Lady Captain’s week and what a great week we have had on the course and in the clubhouse.There was the Lady and Gent’s Captain’s prizes to the Juveniles on Thursday. There were 40 juveniles taking part in the competitions and there was some great scoring. Well done to one and all who took part. And thanks to all the parents that assisted on the evening. Then we had the scramble on Friday and there was a great turnout of both young and old on a beautiful evening. Mal Johnson was ready with the barbeque when the golfers were finished. And the burgers were so good most people had two. Well done Mal.Then on Saturday it was Cheryl’s Lady Captain’s prize day here at the club and on behalf of the Gent’s committee I would like to congratulate Cheryl on a most enjoyable sequence of competitions over the past week. Lady Captain’s Day was a tremendous success and a fitting reward for her tremendous work on behalf of the club throughout the year. Congratulations also to Deborah Moore on winning this prestigious event at the very first attempt. There was a huge turnout on the day and the weather was fantastic. We were very lucky as it had rained heavily in neighbouring towns. The attention to detail by Cheryl was second to none and the clubhouse looked fabulous. The food was fantastic and the music during the day and night kept everyone entertained.Results:Lady Captain Results Saturday 9th August 2014 1st Deborah Moore 41pts2nd Karen McCormick 40ptsGross Maggie Foy 26pts3rd Margaret Roarty 39pts4th Rosie Agnew 38pts 5th Lyn McOwan 37pts9s Sandra McGinley 20pts & Siobhan Bogues 21ptsStudent Amy & RachelLady Guest Rosanne Logue 37pts 14 Hole Gretta Sweeney 23ptsPast Captain Margaret Witherow 37ptsCommittee Olivia Moore 37ptsNon Qual.

During his tenure as Captain we have witnessed growth in all aspects of life here at the club. The course is in the best shape it has ever been, membership is up quite substantially, and in the clubhouse the bar and kitchen are proving extremely popular with members and visitors alike. All of this increased activity has had a very positive effect on our finances, so if this momentum can be maintained we are on track for a very successful year. The feel good factor which currently exists within the club can be attributed in no small measure to the leadership shown by our Captain. His drive, energy and attention to detail are absolutely incredible while his “can do” attitude seems to bring out the best in those around him. It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked alongside such an enthusiastic, dedicated and forward thinking Captain so let us all give him the support he so richly deserves up to and including his big day on Saturday. Lets hope the weather is as kind to Gerald during the week and especially next Saturday. The full list of competitions for the week is listed below.
