It was captain’s prize day last Sunday in Balla and Richie Murphy was the big winner on the day, a second round which saw Murphy come home in eight shots less than his first was enough for him to seal the prize. His two round total of 112 was enough to see him hold off the challenge of Joe Monaghan in second place, with Padraic Cuffe coming home in third place. Dermot MacMahon finished in fourth with PJ Brett in fifth, Fenton Barrett sixth, Seamus Holian seventh, and Padraig Martin eighth. The gross prize was won by Thomas Walsh, with Vinnie Gibbons taking the win for the first 18 and Seamus Cleary the second 18 over the two days. The beginners’ section was won by Sean Kelly, with Mick Murray winning the visitors’ competition and Ian Walsh second in that section. The youths’ prize was won by Dara Cawley with John Cunnane second. Junior Prendergast took the past captain’s prize with Ray Mannion winning the nearest the pin.
Roscommon Golf Club was established in 1904. Located near the old Mote Park Estate on beautiful parkland, this outstanding 18 hole championship course is situated within half a mile of Roscommon town. Roscommon was originally a nine-hole course, but in 1991 the members bought an additional 58 acres of land and the course, under the guidance of Eddie Connaughton, architect, was extended to include nine additional holes. The blend of old and new has been a great success, creating an exciting and demanding new challenge over a 6,290 metre course.
