Ballyliffin Golf Club Results By Phelim Davenport 
 
The main event on the Ballyliffin calendar last week was the Irish Amateur Close Championship.Played over 5 days with 2 being qualifying days and then 3 days of matchplay. The semi finals and final was played on Saturday. After 5 cracking days of golf and a hard fought final between 2 international teammates Alex Gleeson from the Castle Club won 2 n 1 over John Ross Galbraith from Whithead. The both had stood shoulder to shoulder on the Irish Team that had won the Home Internationals in Scotland the weekend before.
Sometimes you look at a scorecard in disbelief and the Saturday Confined provided one of those moments. Nine birdies six pars and three bogies gave Brendan Devlin[1] a round of 65 and 43 Stableford pts. Brendan didn't have much luck during the Irish Close but by God he made up for it on Saturday. Covering the last 6 holes in 5 under par is the stuff of every golfers dreams. Class Brendan. Spare a thought for Gary Mc Geoghegan[5] who shot a 1 under par round to give him 42pts but only 2nd. Gary only arrived back from his wedding in Las Vegas last week but he obviously saved a bit of his energy for the golf. 3rd place went to another low man Oscar Mailey[6] with 38pts. John K Farren[19] took 4th with 38pts also. The Gross went to Jason Mc Intyre[4] with 33 gross pts.
The Sunday Anniversary Open was played off the back tees as usual. A man whose handicap has gone amazingly to 17 Neil Grant had 38pts to win from Jim Monagle[11] with 36pts. In 3rd spot was serial prizewinner Ryan Doherty[5] with 35pts. Nicky Mc Cusker[17] took 4th also with 35pts.  Married life is working wonders for Gary Mc Geoghegan[4] he took the Gross with 28 gross pts.
Just wishing our President Frank Harkin all the best on his big day next Saturday. A few verses of his party piece The Tractor will be a must.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
 
A stiff breeze over the weekend kept the scoring very modest both days.
The Saturday Confined was claimed by Marc Desmond [10] with 35pts, been awhile since that score claimed a weekend comp. In 2nd place was Gerry Redden [12] with 33pts. Eamon O Donnell did the fatherly thing and edged his son out of 3rd place on the break of a tie with 33pts. Shaun O Donnell [8] also had 33pts for 4th but graciously let the oul boy have 3rd. Brendan Devlin [1] claimed the gross with 28 gross pts.
The Sunday Comp. was won by the evergreen Jackie Mc Geoghan [21] with 39pts. He should be worth a couple of Euro for Captains Day. In 2nd spot was Denis McElhinney [11] with 37pts. 3rd place was taken by Pat Harkin[16] also with 37pts. Tony Finn was 4th with 36 pts. Cecil Doherty kept his good form going by claiming the Gross with 30 gross pts.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport
 
Saturday's competition was the Conor Mallon Memorial Open.There was a large turnout of over 150 players. In first place was a new winner in Ballyliffin, Daniel Mc Namee[20] with a stunning score of 45pts. Stephen Mc Gonigle[10] must have thought he had got his hands on the cup again when he returned 44pts but it was only good enough for 2nd place. In 3rd place was Steven Conway[10] with 41pts. Inform Darragh Mc Laughlin[5] filled 4th place with 40pts. The Gross was claimed by Garret Mallon[0] who managed to get in a double bogey 3 bogeys and 6 birdies in a 1 under par round for 37 Gross pts.
The Sunday Confined on Glashedy was played in a mixture of sunshine and rain. In 1st place was Seamus Mc Laughlin[b][26] with a score 38pts. Seamus is making a determined effort to get his handicap down over the last few weeks. Ciaran Mc Conologue[9] seems to be carrying the family name by himself in the prizes at the moment with 37pts for 2nd place. Ryan Doherty[5] took third with35pts. Tony Doherty[a][21] was 4th also with 35pts. The Gross went to Ryan Mc Laughlin[jb]with 29 Gross pts.
The quiet man struck again in the Wed. Soc. Michael Doherty[c]with a winning score of 43pts. Michael just loves the sun. Don Mc Gonagle was 2nd with 39pts, and Paddy McGeoghegan was 3rd also with 39pts. Congratulations to Brendan Callaghan who had a hole in one at the 7th hole. Brendan plays really late on a Wed in case this happens so all the Wed. members have gone home. Well done Brendan

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
 
The Saturday Competition was kindly sponsored by Mc Grory's Culdaff. Not content with excelling at Soccer and Gaelic Football Stephen Mc Laughlin[F]{19} has now turned his attention to Golf and the new Ballyliffin member came up trumps on Sat. with a winning score of 43pts. In 2nd place was big hitting Aaron Jenkins[10] with 40pts. 3rd was Denis Mc Laughlin[12] back in the prizes again after a quiet period with 39pts. taking 4th place was Daniel G Mc Gonagle[23] also with 39pts. I knew that Brendan Devlin[1] wouldn't let the Vice Capt.outdo him two weeks in a row so he took the Gross with  34 gross pts.
The Sunday Confined was played in mostly good conditions. Declan Mc Carron[14] has been quiet for awhile but the long hitting Meentiagh man returned 41pts on Sunday to take 1st place. In 2nd spot was Raymond O Donnell[11] with 39pts. 3rd place was taken by Denis Mc Elhinney[11] with 37pts. In 4th spot was early bird Brian Ferry[10] also with 37pts. The Gross was taken by talented 4 handicapper Paul Doherty{C} with 33 Gross pts
The Wed. Soc. was won by the quiet man Michael Doherty{C} with 36pts. In 2nd place also on 36pts was Mr Ballyliffin Hotel Don Mc Gonagle. In third place was Paul Cox with 35pts.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport
 
I just knew when i heard that the Star Wars crew were bringing a rainmaking machine to Malin Head for the weekend that it would be a perfect couple of days for golf in Ballyliffin.
The Sat. Open was sponsored by D4 Products courtesy of our Vice Capt. Bryan Northey and Sean Grant. The winner was 7 handicapper Stuart Carlisle with 39pts, a new member recently relocated to Clonmany this was his first victory here but it won't be his last. In 2nd place was a man that will not stay out of the paper Eamon O Donnell[17] with 38pts. Third place also on 38pts was Keith Lapsley[6]. In 4th spot was a raider from Redcastle Anthony Breslin[17] with 38pts. The Vice Capt wasn't going to give it all away so he kept the Gross for himself with a score of 30  Gross pts. As a fellow Glentogher man i always knew we were tight. The Visitors prize went to Conor Coady[22] with 34pts.The younger O Donnell Sean took the back nine with 21pts. Gary Mc Geoghegan murdered the ball 327 yards up the 13th hole to claim the longest drive. The nearest the pin went to Seamus Doherty.
148 played in the Sunday Confined and coming out on top was the bionic man Pat Morris[13] with 40pts.Pat drinks a can of WD40 every day to keeps his new joints in good condition. Welcome back Pat. In 2nd place also with 40pts was Dermot Doherty[G][18]. In third place was the other Clancy brother this week Denis Clancy[10] with 39pts. 4th place went to the wee Culdaff man David Mc Laughlin[13] with 38pts. David got rather too much Sun at the North West 200 over the weekend but it didn't seem to affect him. The Gross went to a new member Christopher Long[3] with 32 Gross pts. 
There was a big turnout for the latest outing of the Wed. Soc. Star Wars didn't distract Jackie Mc Geoghegan one bit he took top spot with 37pts. Seamus Kernan made his trip down the road worthwhile grabbing 2nd place also on 37pts. Paddy Mc Geoghegan conquered his nerves and took third with 35pts.
Couldn't finish without mentioning our Captain Liam and our Manager John who found their wallets much lighter after taking on former Irish and Liverpool legend Ronnie Whelan and his good wife over 2 days golf this weekend. The no fly zone over Malin Head was threatened a few times with Johns tee shots.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
 
Weather wise Saturday was a day of two halves for the Sat. Open, forenoon quite good, afternoon a bit of a washout. The lower handicappers came to the fore. In first place was Peter Gallagher[8] with 39pts. In 2nd place was all round sportsman Darragh Mc Laughlin[5] with 37pts.In 3rd place was one of the Mc Connellogue dynasty Ciaran Mc Connellogue[10] with36pts. The Gross went to Paul O Donoghue[6] with 31 gross pts. I can't say anything about him in case he pokes me in the eye.
Sunday started off dull but brightened up as the day went on. Cassidy Bros were sponsors as they have done for many years. In 1st place was Gary Mc Geoghegan[6] with a 1 over par round giving him 41 pts. 15 pars 2 bogeys and a birdie was a pretty steady round of golf. Scratch golf beckoning Gary. In 2nd place was a new name Philip Mc Clean[25] with 40pts. In 3rd spot was Brendan Coneely[14] with 38pts. 4th place was filled afternoon man Jim Monagle[11] with 38pts also. The Gross went to talented low man Paul Doherty[C] {4} with 34 Gross pts.
All you could say about the weather for the latest Wed. Soc. outing is there were definitely no midges. In 1st place was one of the hardy souls who finished the course Phelim Doherty with 32pts. 2nd was Philip Doherty with 28pts. In third place was that man Norman Bates with 26pts. That says it all.
The Classic in aid of the S.R.U.unit Old Convent Carndonagh Patients Fund was held on Friday.
The winners were a new team to win a classic in Ballyliffin. Darryl Butler, Pat Porter, JJ Lafferty and Dermot Doherty got out of bed early in the morning and it paid off with a winning score of 94pts
The organisers would like to thank all the sponsors and helpers and all who played and made it a success. The money will be used to brighten up a few lives in the coming months.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
Not much improvement in weather conditions for competitions in Ballyliffin at the weekend.
The Saturday Open was dominated by the early birds. In 1st place was one of the the Clancy brothers ,Jimmy Clancy[12] with a good score of 42pts.In 2nd place was Carn all round sportsman John Gibbons[10] with 42pts. Back to single figures for John. In 3rd spot was another early bird Vivian Mc Laughlin[14] with 39pts. Cecil Doherty got in with the Gross this week with a 3 over round giving him 33 gross pts.
The Sunday Confined was played in blustery conditions. Top place was taken by one of our up and coming young guns Scott Mc Elhinney[9] who had a 3 over round on Glashedy to give him a super round of 42pts. A level par front 9 set him up nicely he could be forgiven for dropping 3 shots over the last few tough holes. In 2nd place was former captain Jim Porter[7] with 38pts. In 3rd place with a great round of 37pts was 1 handicapper Garrett Mallon. Included in that round was a Hole In One at the 14th hole.Congratulations Garrett just leave one behind the Bar for me. Getting in amid the single figure men was John O Brien[17] in 4th place with 37pts. We cant keep the wee man down Vice Captain Bryan Northey[5] gave his playing partner Brendan Devlin the weekend off and took the Gross himself with 29 Gross pts. Must say well done to Brendan getting back to playing Scratch golf again.
The latest outing of the Wed. Soc. took place in reasonable conditions.A new name in the top place this time Dan Toland with 43pts ,it won't be the last time.In 2nd place was the good doctor Ken Devlin with 38pts. Michael Butter made his regular visit to the prizes in 3rd place with 37pts
 
A big congratulations to our J.B.Carr team on their first time to enter this All Ireland Comp. they fought a great battle with All Ireland champions Ballybofey n Stranorlar coming out with a 3 matches till 2 victory. A couple of matches went to the twentieth hole. So they might be all over 60 but there's life in those old dogs yet.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
 
Competitors were faced with a cold North Westerly wind for the Open Comp. on the Glashedy course on Sat. A combination of very slick greens and the tees moved back for the summer took its toll on the higher handicappers. Taking top place with a brilliant 1 over round giving him 36pts was 1 handicapper Brendan Devlin. 4 over after 10 holes he fought back with 3 birdies to finish 1 over. In 2nd place was another single figure man Des Kemmy[5] also with 36pts.also playing to his handicap. Darragh McLaughlin[6] was another 36pt man to grab 3rd place. Charlie Mc Veigh [13] found himself sandwiched among a lot of single figure men also on 36pts for 4th. Charlie looks like a single handicapper and dresses like one anyway. The Gross went to Francis Dillon[6] with 29 Gross pts. Welcome back Francis.
134 headed out on Sun. in slightly better conditions on the Old Course to play for the long standing Strand Hotel Cup. Just one man broke 40pts. Making it a procession of the Ferry family in the winners spot in the last few weeks was Mathew Ferry[10] with 40pts. That early morning air again in Ballyliffin. In 2nd place was Brian Gibbons[18] with 39pts. In 3rd spot was Fred Daly player Scott Mc Elhinney[9] also with 39pts. Corney Doherty[21] was 4th another man with 39pts. I listened to some hard luck stories with 39pts on Sun evening. A man who just doesn't do hard luck stories is Brendan Devlin[1] he took the Gross with a 1 under round giving him 37 Gross pts.
The latest outing of the Wed. Soc. was played in good conditions. A man who has been threatening a big score for a while Mick Mc Garry cut loose and left everybody behind with 44pts. In 2nd place with 38pts was single figures man Tony Crowley. Also on 38pts in third place was Phelim Doherty.

Ballyliffin Golf Club Results by Phelim Davenport 
 
The Saturday Open was played in good conditions and the winner with 42pts was Eddie Mc Laughlin[12].Eddie can still show the rest of us how to do it. In 2nd place was a man who is punching well below his weight was Seamus Mc Laughlin [m] [16] with41pts ,the vice captain is so happy to see him cut. In 3rd spot was Tom Doherty[b] [22] with41pts also. In  4th place was the man who normally replaces our parts so we can get back on the golf course Henry Mc Gee with 39pts. The Gross went to the most consistent young golfer in Ballyliffin at the moment Gary Mc Geoghegan with 29 gross pts.
Sunday was Mr Gary Mc Glinchey's Captains Day for the Glashedy Winter Classic.The overall all winner of the Captains Prize was Patsy Doherty[11] with 42pts.As greens convenor we all think he set the pin positions but obviously he felt guilty on the back nine so he had a blank , but still had 22pts. Well done Patsy. 
In the low section in first place was David Mc Laughlin [13] with 39pts. 2nd was our Vice Captain Bryan Northey[5] also with 39pts.In 3rd spot was Robert Mc Cool[15]with 39 pts,fast play definitely suits him.In 4th was that man again Gary Mc Geoghegan[6] with 39pts. 5th was Noel Quigley[7[ with 38pts. 6th wasChristy Nelson[15] with 37pts. Early man Charlie Mc Veigh[13 was7th with 37pts.10 handicapper Martin Harkin took 8th place with 36pts.
In the high section early man Colm Mc Laughlin[18] took the honours with 38pts.In 2nd was James Carr[17] with 37pts.J J Lafferty[20] took 3rd with 37pts.The man who was there many years ago to organise the start of the winter classic John Doherty{w}[25] was 4th with 36pts. In5th was Kevin Mathews[16] with 36pts. 6th was Nicky Mc Cusker with 36pts. John Mc Geoghegan[21] slipped in at 7th place with 35pts. In 8th place was Michael Deeney with 35pts.

Reasonable weather was the order of the day for weekend competitions at Ballyliffin.
I had to check the date when I saw the winning score in the Saturday Open. Declan Ferry[10] played the round of his life to return a score of 48pts. It was April the 2nd, 2 under on the front 9 gave him 25pts and a level par back 9 gave him a further 23pts. I always say the morning air in Ballyliffin is hard to beat. Poor old Marc Desmond must have thought that his 42pt return would have been hard to beat on the Glashedy but it only got him 2nd, back to single figures Marc. In 3rd place once again on a good run at the moment was Johnny Mc Eleney with 40pts. Another early man Francis Dillon[7] was 4th with 39pts. The gross went to that man again Brendan Devlin[1] with 35gross pts, easier than running the Coastal Challenge last week.
Sundays comp. was The Clement Sweeney Memorial Cup.The top score was more modest but very impressive. A level par round gave Ryan Doherty[5] 41pts and the cup. Back in the limelight again and heading for single figures was Eoin O Doherty[10] also with 41pts for 2nd place. In 3rd place was Sunday morning man J J Lafferty[21] with 40pts, going nowhere with 14pts on the front nine he went crazy on the back nine to add a further 26pts. In 4th spot was another of our up and coming stars Stephen Mc Gonagle[10] with 39pts. Des Kemmy was back in the frame this week taking the Gross with 32gross pts.
The Wed Soc. latest outing was won by Pascal Harkin with 43pts. There was no chance of a break of a tie in this one because we had to go all the way down to 36pts to get 2nd place which went to Wed Soc boss Martin Boyle. In 3rd was Michael Butter also with 36pts.
Wee Johnny commanded me to inform you all that the entries for the Club Matchplays are been taken at the moment.

A reasonable day for the Monday Open and proving there is nothing wrong with his eyesight was Specsavers boss Paul O Donoghue[6] winning with 36pts. Once the Easter eggs wore off on the back nine which he covered in level par was enough to hold of playing partner Des Kemmy[5] also with 36pts. It's not often Des gets beaten in a photo finish.

Spring finally arrived for the weekend competitions at Ballyliffin.
The Friday open was won by Michael Kelly [19] with 39 pts. In 2nd place with 34pts was Eamon Mc Conigley [12].  Filling 3rd place was 17 handicapper Damien Boyle.
The Saturday Open on the Glashedy was won by a visitor from Chilwell Manor club in Nottingham Tom Buckell [20] with a great score of 44pts.  Tom told me he wished he could play here every weekend.  In 2nd place Paul O Donoghue [6] with 40pts, after a quiet front nine of 17 pts Paul waltzed round the back nine in 2 under par for a further 23pts.  Also on 40pts but losing out on the break of a tie was Jason Mc Laughlin [12].  Ballyliffin institution Jackie McGeoghan [20] had to be content with 4th place also on 40pts.   Brendan Devlin [1] might have lost money but he took the gross with a superb level par round which gave him 36 gross pts.
The 9th outing of the Glashedy Winter Classic was held on both courses.  On the New course the low section was won by 5 handicapper Ryan Doherty with a 39pts.  In 2nd place was Paul Doherty[c][3] with 36pts.The high section was won by John Moore[17] with 41pts.John just can't stop winning at the moment other members are just glad he doesn't play Saturdays as well.  In 2nd place was the one and only Billy Mc Gonagle [28] with 38pts.  The back nine was won by Darryl Butler with 21pts.
On the Old course the low section was taken by John Gibbons [9] with 40pts just holding off Noel Quigley [7] also with 40pts.  Noel played the front 9 in 4 under par which included two 2s but a blank on 17 cost him dear.The high section was won by the boy wonder himself Patsy Toland[21] with 38pts edging out on the break of a tie Paul Matthews also on 38pts.The back 9 was won by Declan Sweeney with 21pts.
The Wed.Soc. proved to be another winning outing for John Moore with 39pts, making it 3 in a row.  I don't know whether he is that good or the rest of us are that bad.  In 2nd place was Pat Mc Laughlin with 37pts.In 3rd place also with 37pts was the singing golfer John Mc Eleney.

Another weather hit weekend at Ballyliffin Golf Club.
The Saturday open was played in windy conditions with 11 handicapper Brian Ferry coming out on top in the break of tie with 38pts.  In 2nd place also on 38pts was 4 handicapper Eamonn Mc Dermott, he was 2 over after 2 but still finished the front 9 in 1 under par.   3 dropped shots in the middle of the back 9 cost him dearly. In 3rd spot with 36pts was the consistent Joe Sheridan.   Making a  return to winning the gross was Brendan Devlin [1], a round of one over gave him 35 gross pts and a few euros off his fourball, from what I hear.
In the opposite from last weekend it was the Sunday competition that was cancelled because of the weather this time.
The Wednesday Society was played in reasonable weather.  ‘That man’ again Eamon O Donnell came out on top with 41pts,  I think we are gonna have to dope test him.  Following him home in 2nd place with 40pts was single handicapper Don Mc Gonagle with 40pts.  In 3rd spot was the consistent Derek Mc Feeley with 38pts.
