The annual Cookstown and Magherafelt Lion Lions Club Golf Classic was held recently at Moyola Golf and Country Club in Castledawson. This year in contrast to the previous two years the event was enhanced with a day of complete sunshine.
With participants from several Ulster counties including Donegal competing they all expressed their compliments to the maintenance staff of the golf club for the professionally maintained course.
Supported by all these favourable conditions needless to say competition for the distinction to have their name engraved on the Regan Tile perpetual trophy was of the highest standard.
The beneficiary of the day’s proceedings was Cancer Focus N. Ireland who on the day had their Keeping Well Van on site and this free and friendly facility was visited on a steady rate during the day.
Winner of the Regan Tile Trophy was Dean Crawford with forty-one points and the leading lady was Sinead McMeel.
