Today was Valentine’s Day so we took 9 groups of romantic golfers to Eastern Star!

We had a 2 tee start so we were all away very quickly unfortunately the greens had been dressed with sand but the course was in good condition.

I gave the players an easy day off the yellow tees as they all needed to save energy for their wives or girlfriends later 😂 but only 2 players shot under their handicaps.

Todays winner like myself has found some form and this was his second green jacket in 10 days so congratulations to Maurice Quaid with a great performance scoring 40pts

2nd place was that man again Barry Cunningham with 37pts

The next 5 places were all decided on a countback with everyone scoring 35pts!

3rd place was my playing partner and new to the Links playing off scratch Nathan Quigley… he had an awesome round going 5 under gross through 11 but a few mistakes on the back 9 left him 1 over.

4th was the ever consistent Lawrie McBride beating the other scratch golfer Quinton Murphy

6th place was my old pal Colm Lawlor who is very nearly in single figures now and he beat myself who also had 35pts.

We say goodbye to 3 people today John Rabbit, Nathan Quigley and Frank… thank you for all your support and many laughs at the bar

Safe journey home
