Debbie captains Newtownstewart's Cowdy Cup team to victory in final

HUGE congratulations to the Ladies Cowdy Cup team at Newtownstewart Golf Club – led by Debbie McCaffrey – who won the final on Sunday when they defeated Dungannon at Malone Golf Club.

Well done also to the Roberts Cup team who hold a narrow lead after the first leg of the final against Omagh so the club has extended good luck to them in the return leg.

In the Members’ Day Stableford on Saturday – sponsored by Muldoon Bros – everyone was treated to hot dogs and drinks on the course with a meal in the clubhouse after their round and great prizes.

The winner with a fantastic 45pts was Steven Irwin and the runner-up was Chris Wilson whose level par round was only good enough for second place.The ladies nine-hole winner was Christine Lynch from Marion McIvor in second place. 

In the ladies Centenary Shield last Thursday sponsored by Balcon Construction, Anita McKay shot a fine 40pts to take first place

Meanwhile, the Strathroy Dairies Winter League begins this Sunday with a very good entry so good luck to all taking part. The Captain’s outing takes place on Saturday in Portsalon with a full time sheet so hopefully the weather is kind.
