It has been another busy week at Carrick Golf Club, with internal competitions and on the inter-club scene.
Cryans Hotel Stroke
Andy Connellan shot a superb 64 to win The Cryans Hotel stroke on Sunday last May 15. Runner up was Kevin Sheeran with an equally fine 66, 5 players shot 69 but Pat Conlon had the best taking third place and of the 7 players who shot 70 Sean Bohans 70 was best, not the best nett but his 78 gave him the gross prize.
