Scratch Player Quigg Lands Emphatic Dr Crotty Victory
Inish Times|15 March 2017

The Dr Paul Crotty Cup was Sunday’s competition on the Old Course and a man we will be hearing a lot more of in Ballyliffin in the coming months came out on top.

Scratch player Keelan Quigg threw in 8 birdies, 8 pars and 2 bogies for a 6 under par round of 42pts to lift the cup. 5 birdies on his back nine was going to be hard to beat, even a bogie at the short 17th didn’t stop him. In 2nd place proving he is not all about carrying bags of coal was Garry Mc Glinchey[20] with 41pts. In 3rd place was Paddy Harkin[18] with 39pts. 4th place went to Jim Monagle[11] also with 39pts. The Gross saw a return again after a quiet few weeks of Paul Doherty[c][2] with 36 gross pts.

The Friday Open was won by the other Eamon Sweeney[c] [17] with 39pts . In 2nd place was his playing partner Dermot Doherty[g][17] with 37pts. Making a welcome return back to the prizes was Vincent Lynn[19] in 3rd place also with 37pts.

The Saturday Open was held in glorious sunshine on the Glashedy course. Coming out on top was 13 handicapper Cecil King with 40pts. In 2nd place was the happy caddy Kevin Downey[10] with 39pts. Brendan Devlin[1] went round in 2 under for 39pts also which gave him 3rd spot. Liam Cregan[13] also had 39pts but was only good enough for 4th place. The Gross went to Stephen Martin[1] with 33 gross pts.

The Wed. Soc. was won by Paul O Donoghue with 37pts. In 2nd place was David McKeague with 34pts and in 3rd spot was Norman Bates with 33pts.

Must congratulate Sarah Harkin who had a Hole In One at the 7th hole on the Old course in the Friday open.

All the best to our 4 new officials who will drive into office on St Patricks Day.

Letterkenny emergency department was on full alert on Saturday night with the Masterchef taking place but they were not required .I will be looking at Ali Farren in awe everytime I go for petrol from now on. Well done to all three. Happy Golfing. By Phelim Davenport.
