The cold, wet weather continued to cause disruption across the province but golfers at Roe Park braved the conditions to make the most of the Christmas holidays.

The traditional Boxing Day Two Man Scramble was as popular as ever with a huge turnout as expected.

The guys to beat were Derek Nicholl and Alan Rankin who went out first as usual and posted what proved to be an unbeatable score of 48.6.

Taking the victory in a two-man event is nothing unusual for this deadly duo and they certainly lived up to their reputation as the most formidable pair at Roe Park.

It could have been a different story as they started poorly with a few bogeys, but their experience showed through in the end with a run of pars and birdies to post an excellent score.

Robert Godfrey and Andy Dunn took second place with a score of 49.2.

Sammy Murphy and John Robson were third, finishing with 50.8.

With the poor weather showing no signs of improving the Club Stableford on Saturday was a bit of a subdued affair with most golfers choosing to remain indoors.

However, of the hardy souls who did turnout, Willie Scott made it worth his while taking victory with a hard earned score of 29 points.

Resident PGA Professional Michael McCrudden held his annual Christmas Draw on Christmas Eve with a fantastic prize of a brand new set of the latest Ping G30 irons, woods, putter and bag.

The winner was none other than Roe Park’s Andy Dunn, a very popular character amongst the members of the club.

The Club Stableford competitions continue as usual every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
