Club President Maurice Quigg (20) shrugged off the cares of office when taking first place in the Samaritans Open at City of Derry on Sunday.

He had an impressive 41 points and a three shot winning margin over Stephen Anderson (5), whose 38 points off his handicap also being the day’s best gross score.

Tommy McBride (4) was third nett on a modest 36 point total. Veronica Burke (24) was the leading lady on the day with 31 points on a count back.

Congratulations are extended to Prehen’s Irish Junior Cup Team that finished leading qualifiers at Foyle on Sunday. They now meet Murvagh at Foyle on a date to be arranged.

Eldred Julius (23) got Prehen’s Open Week off to a fine start with his first ever victory in golf in the O’Doherty Brothers sponsored Open Stableford at Prehen on Saturday.

He scored 39 points for a break of tie win over Ernie Heywood (1) who also had the best gross score of the day. A BOT was also needed to decide the third and fourth places with John Hamilton (7) pipping Alan Montgomery (24).
