Once again the Champagne Scramble proved very popular over the bank holiday weekend. Despite the strong wind scoring was high, with Tom McHugh (15), Seamus Treacy (20), and Bernard Brady (20) winning with 98 points. Second, on 97 points (b/d), were Adrian Forde (13), Brian McDonagh (12), and Tom Coen (25). Best ladies team, with 93 points, were Marian Mulryan, Sheila Stone, and Geraldine McCormack.
This coming weekend the comp. is sponsored by SEAMUS WALSH PHARMACY, is an 18 hole singles stableford and incorporates the WINTER LEAGUE FINAL, where TWO scores count from each team. A sub. will be provided for any team missing a player.

The final event of Tuam’s Saturday Club took place at Portumna Golf Club last weekend and there was an excellent turnout at the ‘away’ outing. Well done to the Captain Mark Curley for what was a very enjoyable season.
The course in Portumna was playing tough with a swirling wind but that did not prevent Tom McHugh returning an impressive 44 points that included several birdies during the course of his round.
Indeed, Tom had nine shots to spare over second placed Michael Barrett as the playing conditions were extremely demanding.
Result: 1st Tom McHugh (16) 44pts; 2nd, Michael Barrett (14) 35pts; 3rd Declan Tierney (28) 34pts; 4th PJ Murphy (24) 34pts; 5th Jarlath Kelly (23) 34pts; 6thVincent Ryder (22) 34pts; 7th Bernard Brady (20) 34pts; 8th Declan King (17) 34pts; 9thStephen Woods (15) 33pts; 10th Michael Cullen (14) 32pts.
