Mannan Castle Seniors 

Senior Captain Jimmy McMahon's run of good golf continues unabated. He started with a birdie on the par 3 first and continued with steady golf before pars on 17 and 18 to finish with 23 points. Unfortunately, his victory the previous week earned him a three-point deduction leaving him on a nett 20 points.

This left the door open for two players on 22 points. The winner was recent retiree and new senior’s member Ciaran Hand. He started with a par on the first and further pars followed on the 13, 17 and 18. Fred Fitzsimons was the loser on countback on the last three holes.

A reminder to all seniors that Club Captain Micheal O'Rourke's prize to the Seniors takes place on Tuesday 26th July. Our thanks to Michael for his generosity.
