On Friday June 27 at a well presented Course at Cregmore Park Golf Club in East Galway it was the next generation of Connacht young boys that competed against one another in the Team of 5 Format, with the aggregate of the Best 4 Gross cards determining the Champions.
Galway Golf Club won the Michael P. O’Donoghue Cup in impressive style in 2013 at Loughrea and were keen to retain the Trophy presented by their former Member, Branch Chairman & GUI President.
The principle contenders were always going to be Galway, Co. Sligo and Athenry and perhaps the young lads from Roscommon and Castle Dargan pushing hard also.
In the end it was galway who had six shots to spare of Co. Sligo in 1, 2 and this was mostly due to the stunning -2, 70 gross which Paddy Culhane returned playing off 4 handicap over the testing par 72 layout.
Hugh O’Neill PGA, Connemara Golf Links once again sponsored the prizes and was in attendacne to present the young boys with their Vouchers and expressed his joy at the improving standards of Connacht Junior Golf at this level.
