180 members took part in the President’s Day competition at Dungannon, a wonderfully pleasant day, and everyone who played enjoyed the event.

Scoring was not particularly high, with only three players breaking the 40 points barrier, all of them precisely on that commendable score.

The winner was Aidan Taggart via a better last six than Dominic Rafferty, who pipped Seamus Dinsmore for the runner-up award.

It was a great day for Alexis Davidson taking the ladies longest drive and nearest the pin prizes on her way to victory.
