Gallery: Fr Charlie Byrne's President's Prize at Rosapenna Golf Club

A great day and night was had by all the members at Rosapenna Golf Club on Saturday at the 2021 President's Prize.

The club had a huge turnout on the day, a great testament to President, Fr Charlie Byrne.

With very strong winds a late change was made to the format on the day and luckily the weather cooperated for the most part which resulted in fine scoring. 

The Gents played the Old Tom Morris Links with Mickey Treanor (23.4) claiming the 2021 President's Prize with 41 points.

In second place was Matthew Coyle (6.3) with 40 points. Gross prize went to Enda Kennedy (+0.1) with 34 gross points.

In third place was Martin McBride (10.6) with 37 points bot. The front nine went to Jimmy Carr (22) with 21 points, while the back nine went to Darragh McClafferty (32.3) with 23points*.

The Past President prize went to Hugh McBride (23.2) with 32 points bot. Two's - M.Lenny, M.McBride, D.McBride, S.Doherty, E.Kennedy, G.McGee, D.O'Kane, S.Sweeney & P.Smyth. Entries - 83pax.

There was a large entry on Saturday last in honour of Fr Charlie Byrne’s Presidents Day, which was played on the Sandy Hills Links.

The stormy weather coupled with heavy showers certainly made playing difficult which is reflected in the scoring, but Patricia Bogan (24) continued her recent good form to claim the prestigious First prize with 35 points just beating Claire Lenny (14) on break of tie, for runner up position.

Carmel Barry (14) won the gross prize with 20 gross points and the higher category prize was won by Aisling Cullen (51) with 34 points.

The nines were won by Susie Coyle (42) on 17 points and Celine Bradley (24) with 22 points.

The evening prize giving and meal in the Rosapenna Hotel was very well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all the members. Congratulations to Fr Charlie on a fantastic day, beautiful prizes and for your generosity and courtesy throughout the year.

The Ladies Halloween Hamper will be played for next Sunday 31st October with booking on the BRS system as usual. Anyone wishing to contribute to the Hamper, can leave their donation in the Locker Room and thank you in anticipation.
