Rockmount Sunday 19th March was the first Society outing of 2017. 35 members turned out. Given the heavy rain that faced us on waking up it was acredit to everyone that turned up regardless. And their resileance was rewarded with 18 holes in near perfect playing conditions with little wind and no rain!. The course was in good order given the amount of rain we have had over the previous 48 hours. The meal afterwards was first class as we always find at Rockmount. Even with the greens sanded the scoring was high with 18 players scoring 30 or more and 7 players 35 or more!
The winner of the Brendan Sloan Memorial Trophy, seen here with the Captain Harry McGrath, was Paddy Carville with a score of 40pts (BBN). The Low section (8-20 h/cap) winner was Rod Geddes (40pts) closely followed by John McGrath2 (39pts). The High Section (21-28) winner was Kevin Coyle (36pts) closely followed by Brendan Houston (35pts).
Nearest the pin prizes were won by John McGrath2 (3rd), Donal Campbell (9th), Paul Dowdie (12th) and Rod Geddes (16th).
The draw for the first round of the Dan Quayle also took place.
