Gents Open Stableford   30 July

On each of his 17 previous competitive outings this year Michael McLaughlin has failed to score pts on at least one hole but he held it all together yesterday as he took the Gents Open Stableford in convincing style with 43pts off 12.  Double bogeys at 7 and 14 were the only occasions where he threatened to come a cropper, but he dropped just 3 shots over the other 16 holes in his most impressive round in quite some time.

Team News: Results

Craigy Cup:

Following their impressive victory over Edenmore (24-4) Lurgan’s juveniles met a strong Tandragee side and were unfortunately beaten 15.5 – 12.5.


Rossmore Cup

1st Leg – Lurgan lost the first leg of the Rossmore by 3 1/2 to 1 1/2 at Rockmount.  Lurgan held a slender lead at the turn, but local knowledge proved invaluable and Rossmore moved ahead in the back nine.  All to play for in the home leg!!



Richard Budd’s MUSA team continue to make steady progress up the leader board, and currently sit in 3rd place.  With 3 matches remaining, and only 2 points behind second place, there is a lot to play for and hopefully with a strong finish Lurgan will be among the prizes.


Lisburn – 1st place – 898 pts

Omagh – 2nd place – 850 pts

Lurgan – 3rd place – 848 pts



As with the MUSA team our MUSL team sit 3rd in their league, after round 6 of the event.  They meet Kilkeel on the 7th August, and are hoping for a favourable result and allow them to challenge for the top 2 places.

Greenore – 1st place – 58 pts

Mourne – 2nd place – 42 pts

Lurgan – 3rd place – 38 pts

Wednesday Sweep 19th July

Wednesday was very much a day of two halves with the benign morning changing around lunchtime into a very wet afternoon and there must have been occasions when the intensity of the rain made course closure a distinct possibility.  In the end 88 players entered although about half of them retreated to the comfort of the clubhouse long before they reached the 18th.
