Holmpatrick Cup Qualiifier
Perhaps it was the number of inter-club competitions going on at present but it was a somewhat disappointing turn-out of members for the qualifying round of the Holmpatrick Cup. Played as a Four-Ball Better- Ball format it will be the combination of Gareth McLoughlin and Sean Cooney who go forward to represent the club as their 46 points was good enough to lead the way.
In the Wednesday Cup it was Noel Hughes who secured his spot on the finals board as he returned 20 points,edging out Niall Clarke on a count-back.
Michael’s Smiths Rossmore Cup team had a difficult task to overturn the away result against Down Royal and despite their best efforts they were unable to make it to the next round.
In the Sam Rutherford competition Ashfield managed to secure a 10 hole lead in the home leg and this proved decisive as they held on away against a very strong Armagh team. Next up is Dungannon.
President’s Day
With the weather perfect and the course in excellent condition there was a near full turn out of members to participate in Kenny Murphy’s third and final Presidents Day. With the first men teeing -off at 6.30 and the third nine commencing at 4.30 a long day was on the cards for many. The early pace was set by young Stephen Campbell who returned a net 63, Damian Ross carded a 65 but with many of the big guns also making the cut it should be an exciting third nine. Full report next week but check out results on Master Scoreboard.

There is more than one Rory !!
Last week’s notes were somewhat rushed so I did not give enough credit to the wonderful round of golf played by Rory O’Neill. His gross 67 may not have been a course record but was a superb round nonetheless. Getting yourself cut has messed up my Sam Rutherford plans.
An Ace for David
The same can apply to runner-up David McBirney who returned an excellent gross 72 making a net 62 and also getting himself cut but during his round David managed to secure a Hole In One at the 16th. Congratulations David, you join a very select group of golfers at Ashfield. In third place with 64 (16) was the consistent Martin Rooney. In the two’s club there was success for Kevin McCauley, RobertToman and RuairiMurchen.
Week five of the Wednesday Cup competition was won by Gerry Fegan. Gerry was not playing with his usual Wednesday night four-ball so obviously the pressure was off him. He is reported to have said that for the first week since the competition started his back was not sore.
In the All-Ireland Fourball competition Aidan Carraghers side travelled to Cairndhu Golf Club and despite going down by 2 matches Aidan is confident that the tie can be turned around at Ashfield.
Congratulations again to Raymond Murphy who guided his Pierce Purcell team through the qualifying round and they now meet Mannan Castle at Conchra Wood
Congratulations also to Paul McCann and his Ulster Cup team who make it through to round three with an excellent 6-1 home win.
In this weekend’s competition it was Keith Johnston who stole the limelight as he returned an excellent 45 points.
A reminder to members that the second Major competition ,President’s Day is coming up on the 5th June.
The Committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday18th May will now take place on Wednesday 25th May.

Last weekend s competition was a Three-man Scramble and this was won with a superb net 47 by Aidan carragher,Pat Malone and Robert Toman. They finished three ahead of the trio of Michael McBride, Damian McMahon and Gerard Roe. I bet your team mates were not complaining about your handicap last weekend Gerard!!
Week 4 of the Wednesday Cup saw the continuation of the excellent form of Rory O’Neill as he shot 22 points of his low handicap, two ahead of Philip Hughes with Kieran Bellew third with 19 points.
Despite their best efforts at Warrenpoint the Jommy Bruen team were unable to qualify for the knock out stages and a similar fate befell the seniors at Royal Belfast as they could not make the cut for the next round of the Jimmy Carroll competition.
Aidan Carraghers All Ireland Four-Ball squad are away at Cairndhu for their second round match and hopefully they will secure a good result to take back to Ashfield. Matches involving the Ulster Cup,(just heard they had an excellent half match away on Saturday)Sam Rutherford and Rossmore Cup teams will be coming up soon so team members are asked to support the Captains as much as possible.
Just back from the Pierce Purcell qualifier at Manann Castle and good news is we finished third and will now play Manann in Castlebaney. Congratulations to Raymond and his team.
Also congratulations to rory O’Neill who played the course on Sunday in two under par. Not sure if this is a course record but it can’t be far of it.

Inter-Club Success
Congratulations to Team Captains Paul McCann and Aidan Carragher who were able to build on their excellent home wins to secure entry to the next round of the Ulster Cup and All-Ireland Four-Ball respectively. The Ulster Cup team went through on an overall scoreline of 9-5 while a share of the spoils at Temple was enough to see Aidan’s team safely through.
With the other GUI and Cowdy competitions coming up soon all members who are interested in playing should keep an eye on the notice-board for further details.
Last weekend’s competition was a single Stableford and with weather and course conditions being excellent there were many top scores recorded, in fact, a quarter of the field returned 38 points or better. The winner was Seamus McArdle who netted 42 points playing of 16, Martin Rooney returned 41 points of 13 just edging out Collie Stuttard (13) on a count-back. However my round of the weekend was that of Rory O’Neil who returned 41 points playing of 8, including excellent birdies at the par threes eighth and thirteenth.
The second round of the Wednesday Cup attracted the usual good turn-out with the scoring not as strong as in Week One. Kevin McCauley secured his passage to the final night play-off retuning 20 points, pipping Pat Malone by just the one.
I have eventually found my copy of the non members competition for the “Bring a Friend” weekend, the winner being P.Spencer with 43 points, second was I.Mcnulty with 40 points just edging out J.Kelly on a count-back.
This weekend’s competition was won by Gerard Roe with 46 points, with Kevin McCauley second on 41 points and Gerry Fegan third with 39 points, including two excellent birdies at the 8th and 16th.
Next weekend’s competition is a Three-man Scramble, will not be around for it so hopefully Christy will do some notes—hope he mentions the boys who teed –off on the 9th when I was on the 14th green—maybe it was deliberate!!!
Members should note the text message sent reference the Changing rooms—you have been warned!!
A reminder to Rodney, Philip, Niall, Paul and a few others, I will not be available on F.A. Cup final day!!!
