Luke Woods is the 2013 Juvenile Captain at Banbridge Golf Club and he held his special Captain’s Day last Wednesday.

It was a wonderful day of competitions, which was enjoyed by everyone.

Luke presented a new trophy in memory of his father Trevor, who died so tragically a few short weeks ago.

It was for the under 16 players with handicaps of 18 and over.

The winner was young Rory McNiff with a marvellous score of 46 points. Jamie Ewing was runner-up, also with 46 points. Evan Taylor was third.

Joshua Reain won the first nine with 22 points and Thomas McKibben won the second nine with 22 points.

Chrissy Burns. with a score of 40 points, won the the Stevenson Cup for the lower handicap boys.

Jamie Thompson was runner-up with 38 points. Josh Lockhart won the best gross prize with 27 gross points.

Cameron Allison won the first nine with 19 points. Michael Young won the second nine, also with 19 points.

There were several consolation prizes.

Nine holes: Mark Cowan.

Longest drive: Josh Crory (white blocks) and Thomas McKibben (yellow blocks).

Nearest the pin: Chrissy Burns (12th) and Aaron Sprat (15th).

Putting challenge: Patrick Magennis (white) and Matthew Elliott (yellow).

It was a brilliantly organised day. The juvenile committee were determined that everything should go without a hitch. Your father would have been proud of you, Luke. That’s for sure.


Here is a date for your diary – Friday September 20.

Derick Napier is organising a fund-raising team event that should be of interest to the majority of club members.

It’s called ‘Hope for Eva’ and it’s for a very worthy cause.

The details are on the noticeboard and in the Pro Shop.

Read about it and contact Derick if you want to enter a team.

The number of teams is limited to 36 and hopefully all starting times will be filled.

We’ll mention this again as we come closer to the date.
