Who says lightning never strikes twice in the same place! Tommy Carey would disagree because despite winning €5,900 in our Alpha Bet drawn in May 2010 with the letters RICK he continued to support the club and kept buying Alpha Bet tickets and was rewarded once again on Monday 24th of April when his letters JCBR were pulled out and he won the jackpot of €3,700! Congratulations Tommy! The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Felim Woods Lisnaskea, Pat Dolan C/O Bridge Club, St. Vincent de Paul Clones, Hubert Cassidy Smithboro and John Duffy Clones. The jackpot now starts again at 2,000 so have a go you never know!
The 18 hole stableford Mary Peters’ Trust will be played on Sunday 6th of May and Thursday 10th of May. The winner will travel with LC Veronica to Massereene for the finals later in the year.
The ladies competed in an 18 hole stroke Medal on Sunday 21st and Thursday 26th of April with prizes sponsored by Noirin McKenna, Vera Tighe and the club. The Sunday players had a nice dry afternoon after the torrential rain in the morning the Thursday ladies had a whole different scenario with very high winds and bitterly cold conditions. It was thought that the winning scores would come from Sunday but indeed out Thursday players scooped all three sections with Brid Finlay bringing in the best score to win Section B with a 72 nett and Brid lost a shot for her trouble! Section A was won by Vera Tighe (nett 76) who always said she hates playing in the wind! You’ll have to re-think that one Vera! Section C was won by Lady Captain Veronica McGorman with an 83 nett.
Next year 2013 Clones Golf Club will be 100 years old and we need to mark the occasion in style. If you have any ideas to mark the occasion please let Gerry Kelly know or note them down and pop them into the suggestion box. A suggestion that old photographs of events over the years are displayed appears to be gathering pace so if you could start digging through those drawers of old pics and put your name of the back and we’ll let you know when we need them!
