Our Junior boys team in the in the Fred Daly Plate competition 2nd leg against Whitehead G.C. at Whitehead went down to a stronger team by 4.5 to 2.5 (8.5 to 5.5 over the two legs).  This was the Club’s first venture into the Fred Daly competition and has been a great experience for our young players and will keep them in good stead for future competitions.

GolfSixes Regional Qualifying Competition

Our Antrim Golf Club team of Kaya Holmes, Manus Black, Caitlin Ong, Jack Hennesy, Jak Irwin and Ryan McKay took part in the new GolfSixes competition for beginners at Blackwood G.C. on Friday.  All three pairings performed well against stronger opposition and although unlikely to qualify, it was a great experience for them.  It is great for our Junior leaders to see the enthusiasm of the boys and girls and their obvious enjoyment for the game.
