The ever popular Matthews of Clones competition which ran from Friday 25th of September and concluded on Sunday 4th of October was extremely well supported and we are very grateful to Eugene and Mary McCaughey of Matthews of Clones for their continued generous sponsorship of this event. The presentation was on Monday 12th October at the Alpha Bet. This is the 24th consecutive year that Matthews of Clones have supported Clones Golf Club and we are extremely grateful to them. The Men’s winner with a whopping 45 points was once again Paddy Kerr in 2nd place was Gareth Beattie with 44 points and Melvin Brogan was 3rd with 43 points on a countback from numerous other similar scores. The ladies winner was Lady Captain Rosita McCabe with 35 points and she also had the best score for 2nd place but generously decided to decline the prize which meant Brid Finlay was 2nd with 34 points and Geraldine Fitzpatrick came 3rd with 33 points also on a countback from other similar scores. The prizes were absolutely fabulous and thanks again to Eugene and Mary McCaughey for the fill of oil for 1st, the meal for two at the Olde Post Inn for 2nd and the meal at The Creighton Hotel for 3rd. Thank you to everyone who took part.
