It was Fundraising Gala Day at Banbridge Golf Club last Friday. The event proved to be a lot of fun and all the players enjoyed the day.

There could, of course, have been a few more teams but the organisers were well satisfied.

Sweep Results

Sunday 17th August - The big question being asked before this sweep got under way was, “Could anyone get a two?” There was a massive rollover and only one chance, at the par 3 eighth hole.

As luck would have it, there was only one 2 on the day and the lucky player was Alex Clarke. The amount he won will go a long way towards paying for his new driver. Well done, Alex!

1st- Adrian McEvoy (16) Nett 33.

2nd- Paul Doherty (22) Nett 33.

Monday 18th August - Philip Mallon played the 14 holes of the Monday Sweep in one over par gross which was good enough to win the competition by one point. It was a rewarding day too for Bertie Shaw who had the only 2 of the day.

1st- Philip Mallon (10) 35 points, 2nd- Ryan dodds (15) 34 points, 3rd- Paul Faulkner (14) 34 points.
