HEAVY rainfall on Saturday last and throughout Saturday night into Sunday morning disrupted golf competitions across the county with many of the courses remaining closed on Sunday resulting in the cancellation of the scheduled competitions.

Weather permitting all clubs will hold weekly competitions this week while the team league will resume at Woodstock.

Ennis Golf Club:

Sunday’s scheduled competition at Ennis fell foul of the weather conditions but Saturday’s scramble did go ahead and was won by Carmel Cummins, Steve Burns and Paul Kenny with 69 points. They had three to spare over Patricia O’Reilly, Paul Mockler and John Brack. In third place with 65 points were Maureen Moloney, Denis Cahill and Ken O’Farrell with Della Burns, Michael O’Grady and James Corcoran a point further back on 64 points.

A men’s fourball competition on Saturday was won by Sean Rynne (11) and James P. Horgan (20) with 48 points.

The Pat O’Brien Memorial competition is being extended with the final being held at a date to be confirmed in the summer months. The competition will continue until a date for the final has been determined.

This week’s qualifiers are Kieran Ryan, David Considine and David Cassidy with 86 points.

Entries to the gent’s matchplay competitions (Cyril Walshe, Knox Cup and Koley Cup) are now been accepted. The closing date for entries is March 31st.

Gort Golf Club:

The weekly competition at Gort was played but over a reduced course of sixteen holes. The category 1 winner was Peter Deegan (10) with 37 points. Padraic Landers (12) won category 2 with 38 points, category 3 was won by Barry O’Driscoll (21) with 35 points while the category 4 winner was Tom Casey (41) with 44 points.
