THE first com­pe­ti­tion of 2019 at­tracted a full timesheet, with 50 pairings tak­ing part in a Scotch Four­somes com­pe­ti­tion, and there was less than one shot be­tween the top three at the end.

The re­lent­less driz­zle cer­tainly didn’t ham­per Jim Burling­ham (28) and Pat Beirne (23) who blended per­fectly to win with a nett score of 47.2.

That was half-a-shot bet­ter than the ex­cel­lent 47.7 re­turned by 12-hand­i­cap­pers Pat Don­aghy and Mark Browne, while Conor McCaughey (6) and John McGeady (24) re­turned a score of 48.3 to fin­ish third.

The com­pe­ti­tion was the first played un­der the new rules of golf and mem­bers are re­minded that they can find out more in­for­ma­tion about the changes on the club web­site www.dun­dalk­golf­club.ie.
