Killymoon Golf update

SATURDAY 9th June was the date of the annual trip for golfers from Killymoon to play the second leg on the Tyrone Cup in Dungannon. This year a good field took advantage of the short break in the wet weather to compete for the inter club competition.

The 2nd leg was won on the day by Dungannon’s Gordon Tate with a better back nine score of 66, just ahead of Killymoon’s Joe Muldoon.

Third place on the day was taken by Dungannon’s Patrick Fearon with the host club also taking the best gross with Timothy Jordan’s score of 69. Killymoon did slightly better in the division prizes with wins by the reliable Nigel Stewart and Kevin Thom.

All winners in this years’ competition should note that the presentation will be held this year in Dungannon Golf Club, date yet to be confirmed.

Despite the threat of poor weather a good field assembled on Saturday 16th June for the Gents Stableford Competition. The completion was quite a close affair in the main field but a clear winner on the day with an impressive score of 43 points was Terry Duffy who, in addition to his prize, will now have the pleasure of a two stroke reduction in handicap.
