THE last Saturday of 2011 at Edenmore Golf Club was memorable for many of the golfers for different reasons.
The undoubted star of the day was five handicapper James Curran playing his competition on the back nine holes.
James recorded birdie after birdie to stand on the 18th tee box a massive four under par.
Unfortunately he recorded a double bogey six to finish on two under par and win the best overall score of 23pts.
A similar story can be said of young Shane O’Hanlon.
Shane, one of the most improved golfers in the club throughout the 2011 season and playing of a handicap of 11, shot level par on the front nine to win his section on 24pts.
Finbar O’Hagan won the gross prizes on the front and back ,both on 34 shots.
Alistair Simpson won the back nine section one (0-13) with 22pts with single figure handicapper Clyde Anderson, finishing in the runners-up spot with 21pts.
The other section winners on the back nine were in (14-18) handicaps, Edward Moulds on 21pts beating Arthur Wenlock also on 21pts.
Bob Scott won the (19-22) handicap section with 22pts beating Alan McGahie on count back. Gareth Reilly took the honours in the (23-28) section with 19pts from Peter Nelson on 17pts.
On the front nine overall winner was Lee McClintock on a massive 25 pts who then was playing off a handicap of 21.
As mentioned earlier Shane O’Hanlon won the (0-13) section with 24pts with Jim Uprichard in the runners spot on 22pts.
Section two (14-18) handicaps saw Neil McMullan beating John Halliday on countback after both returning 22pts.
