WITH the third cards returned in the Pitchers Restaurant Spring League at Foyle Team 17 Gerald Conaty, Darren McCarron, Gary Loughran and Adrian Brown having returned a fine score of 95 points for an accumulated score of 282 points lead by one point from Team’s 13, 11 and 7 and at this early stage in the league it looks like being a very competitive competition as the teams pursue the eight qualifying place in the Match play finals.

The Easter Egg competition was won by Matt Donnell, while the Foyle Sunday Society attracted another fine turnout at the weekend with the competitors enjoying a decent day and once again the scoring was of the highest order with 12 handicapper Frank Doherty producing an excellent wining score of 46 points with a 45 points break of tie deciding the minor placings in favour of Gerald Toland (25) who finished second with Mark McCloskey (21) in third place.

The Pitchers Restaurant Spring league continues daily as does the Easter Egg competitions and the Foyle Sunday Society continues at the weekend.

Meanwhile George Curry (9) spread-eagled the field over the 12 holes played in Saturday’s competition at City of Derry.

Just two over par after four holes he was two under after eight holes thanks to a glittering run of four successive birdies and with four more more pars to finish he had set a very difficult target of 35 points for the rest of the competitors to chase. Needless to say nobody came near but James McGeady (16) was closest with his 32 points for second place and he was followed home in turn by newly elected club Council member Dermot Hegarty (15) with 31 points.

The Sunday Society competition was claimed by Eamon McCourt (8) after he scored 32 points and Kevin Green (14) was second with 31 points and Peter Deans (14) was third after a break of tie after he too finished with 31 points.
