WELCOME TO ISLE OF MAN GOLF
A lovely sunny day was forecast for the last round of the Dandara Junior of Merit for this year and it surely was, even though a little chilly for those who went out earlier in the day. Played at Mount Murray Golf Club, it was certainly a day where local knowledge of the course was shown to be very rewarding for the players
In the Under 18's 18-Hole competition it was Rowany’s Jack Gilbert who took 1st place with a round of 79 Gross/76 Nett from Mount Murray’s own Tom Cain who came in with 105 Gross/93 Nett.
It was another Mount Murray player, Sam Crawford, who took the honours in the Under 14’s 18-hole Competition with a round of 91 Gross/73 Nett from Peel’s Lauren Haxby, who has moved up from the 9 hole category to the full 18 for the first time and scored 117 Gross/81 Nett.
In the 9-hole Competition it was Kase Phinney from Mount Murray who came out on top with a fantastic 2 on the 6th hole to take 1st place with 11 points from Ramsey’s Jack Higgins who scored 7 points.
Whilst in the 6-Hole Competition, it was Sam's sister, Jenna Crawford of Mount Murray who took the top place with a score of 15 points from Douglas’s Liam Hunt with 13 points.
The Flag Competition was a very close contest with both players from King Edward Bay reaching the 5th hole, but it was Claire Egan who just pipped Kesha Dooley by getting on the green in the allotted 36 shots.
Well done to all who took part on a day when even the adults found scoring somewhat challenging. Many thanks to Mount Murray for hosting the event and to sponsors, Dandara, for their generosity in supporting these competitions.
Photos to follow soon
Sadly, with gales and potentially very heavy showers forecast for the afternoon of Sunday 10th September, it was felt unsafe (and very uncomfortable for our intrepid young players!) to hold the Agrimark Trophy at KEB as planned.
It is hoped that a new date can be found to run this prestigious and well-supported competition and, as soon as this can be arranged, all clubs will be informed.
Many thanks for your patience.
