After the postponement of the first round of the Club Championships last week – this week was another excellent day for golf; however with some really tough pin positions, scoring was never going to be easy, and so it proved. In the main competition Daniel Bell set off at the crack and didnt really get going as he picked up four bogies in the first nine, but on his back nine a couple of birdies helped him back in level par to sit two off the lead. Godfrey Kelly continues his good run of form as he pieced together a very steady lap; however starting with a birdie on the first should bode well, but Kels round was steady without really catching fire and there were no more birdies. In the lead - Lee Morgan fired a 71 helped by four birdies on 1, 7, 12 and a great one on 18 which edged him into a one shot lead at the midway point.
In the nett section - first out was Daniel Lace who posted a nett 68 which gave him the lead in the clubhouse until late in the afternoon. Four other 68s came in, but it wasn’t until Shaun Corrin came in that the first of the 3 67s was returned. Shaun had a great three over par outward nine of 38, coming back in 41 to record his two under par score. Jimmy Keane was next in with a 67; he went out in 39, but came back in 38.
However the leader is the in-form Tony Neill, fresh off his first big victory in the Willy Kirkpatrick last week and carrying this confidence into his medal round despite getting a 6 on the first hole! He had a very even round, coming back in 39 gross to just pip Jimmy to the lead. With 39 players within 5 shots of the lead, this sets up the second round beautifully with so many players in with a chance of the nett prize.
Tony wins Willy Kirk
Tony Neill vs Ian Nicholson
After all the rain on Saturday, the course was in fantastic condition for the Willy Kirk final on Sunday. The two players, eager to get going, set off early and played at a great pace in a very evenly contested match as they reached the 8th all square. Here was the first signs of the softening fairways giving much less run as Tony hit what appeared a beauty straight at the pin, but it didn’t get the run he expected and he ended 25 yards short of the green, which he chipped up 12 feet below the pin. Ian also chipped on in three but he went beyond the hole and had a tricky downhiller; whilst the fairways slowed down – the greens were quick and Ian’s aggressive par putt kept going down the slope and beyond Tony’s ball and he conceded after missing the return, for Tony to go one up.
After a couple of scrappy halves they moved onto the stroke index one 11th hole. Both hit good tee shots leaving 200 yard approaches; they nailed their woods straight at the pin, but the soft landings left both short and it was down to the chip and putt. Neither player threatened with their chip, but Tony came off after 2 putting for the win to go two up.
After pegging one back on the 12th Ian was on the green in three at the 13th, with Tony above the pin in three with an almost impossible chip to get down in two. Tony made a good fist of it but was unable to knock in the 12 footer up the slope. Ian had a long, tough first putt which he judged well to leave him a short one with a tricky borrow. He caught the lip and it spun it a further 3 foot away and Ian crucially missed the one coming back to go back to two in it.
With this in his mind Ian pulled his drive and approach shot left, and was unable to get down ahead of Tony to go three down. Another loose drive by Ian into the trees led to the end of the contest despite Tony almost going out of bounds – his chip to within putting range was enough for Ian to concede the hole and the match.
Congratulations to both players for a match played in great spirit and to Tony Neill for his first big win for a long time!
Jimmy Keane for Captain's Prize
1 Keane, Mr James 75 11c 64
2 Christian, Mr Phil 70 6c 64
3 MOYER, Mr PETER 81 16c 65
There were 127 entries for Captain’s Day and 29 of these played to their handicap or better on an excellent day for scoring, despite the rain that came in the afternoon! Pete Moyer was on his own in 3rd place with a 65; he had a steady front nine and then came back in 5 over par, although this will be tinged with disappointment as he parred all of the tough holes, but had a spell of 5s from 14 to 17 to just push him out of the top spot.
With the top two level on 64s, Phil Christian was again out of luck in breaking his barren spell. Phil was edged out of the Joe Gale Bogey in 2013 on countback and so he was again here, and he also missed out on the best gross by a shot – it can’t be long before his luck changes!!
The winner though was Jimmy Keane who also hasn’t had his name on a major trophy for years! By his own admission as he made his winning speech, his building analogy for being ‘somewhat nervous’ playing his shot into 18 indicated how much the win meant to him as he held it together for a back nine of one over par!!
Big thanks go to the captain, who was out at the ninth with the BBQ offering hot dogs and refreshments all day and then putting on another BBQ in the evening. Particularly impressive was the fact that he got out to the ninth and had everything going by the time the first players,Danny Bell and Lee Morgan got there, having started their round before 7:00a.m.!! There was also a great turnout in the evening for the presentation of the Captain’s competition and the President’s Prize from a couple of weeks before and the clubhouse was buzzing!
Kayleigh KOs the fellas
1 DAWSON, MISS Kayleigh 44
2 LEECE, Mr Grant 41
3 WILLIAMSON, Mr Mathew 39
11 twos from 71 entries
In order to improve the numbers entering Clubnight competitions, the Club has opened them up to the Ladies and Kayleigh Dawson took full advantage with a fantastic round of golf; her three over par round for 44 points continued her impressive form, started in the Ladies Championships, and we hope this form stays with her as she competes in the English Girls Championmships this week at Copt Heath!
With 71 entries and the biggest clubnight entry of the year, the new approach seems to have worked!!
In second place was Grant Leece with 41 points; Grant started with a blob on the first and then proceeded to play the rest of his round in two over par including back to back birdies at the turn. Mat Williamson was third with 39 points, and he also didn’t score on the first, but his shaky start was settled by a birdie on the 4th and he was one clear of a group of eight players on 38 points!!
1st win for 7 years is precious to Mike!
1 Preshous, Mr Michael +7 13c
2 WILLIAMSON, Mr Mathew +3 11c
3 Patterson, Mr Clive +3 10c
4 Kelly, Mr Christopher +3 10c
5 HIDE, Mr MARK +3 9c
In the Bogey competition that is the President’s Prize there were 5 players tioed on plus three with Nick Lyman missing out on the prizes! Mark Hide just made the prizes behind Chris Kelly, who clearly likes bogey competitions, having finished runner up in the Ballagarraghyn earlier in the season. Head Greenkeeper, Clive Patterson took advantage of his detailed knowledge of the course to edge into a podium spot following a birdie / par finish. Top of the plus threes was Mat Williamson, whose first nine was no great shakes, but he then proceeded to come back in plus four with a level par gross final four holes which shot him well clear of the others on the same score.
However, way out on his own was Mike Preshous who played the first nine in plus four and then birdied 10; a poor couple of holes then only inspired Mike further as he parred four of the last 5 holes – with shots – to finish on an unbeatable seven under the card as he got his name on a trophy for the first time since the Mylchreest Centenary Cup in 2007!!
Ian Nicholson and Tony Harrison in the prizes again
1 NICHOLSON, Mr Ian, HARRISON, Mr TONY 44
2 HIDE, Mr MARK, MIDDLETON, Mr Kevin 44
3 Richmond, Mr Neil, Quine, Mr Martyn 43
Overnight rain was exactly what the course needed and had the putting surface in pristine condition, but despite a challenging breeze and only three quarters handicap, the scoring was impressive. In third place, sharing 43 points with 3 other groups, so taking a podium finish on countback, courtesy of birdies on the 10th and 16th was Neil Richmond and Marty Quine.
2 pairs shared 44 points. In second place were Mark Hide and Kevin Middleton, despite birdies on 10, 15 and 16, their bogeys on 11, 13, 14 and 17 gave them 21 on the back nine, whilst the winners had 22! Ian Nicholson and Tony Harrison had one less bogey on the run in and this proved to be crucial in getting them the victory.
Paul deals with appalling weather
1 QUAYLE, Mr Paul 81 15c 66
2 Kelso, Mr David 75 8c 67
3 Kelly, Mr Godfrey 71 3c 68
The Jack Pugh Trophy is another qualifier for the Order of Merit and the top boys were out in force to cement their positions in the race for the title. There were tough conditions for all players, although the wind got even stronger in the evening and the late starters had to contend with some heavy rain.
The prevailing cross wind was a typical Peel wind – seeming to give no help and gusting in different directions to challenge club selection on every shot – even the putts at times!! Despite the testing conditions, the scoring was good enough to keep the CSSS to 69, and old stager Godfrey Kelly continued his steady form taking third place on countback with a 68, whilst another seasoned campaigner, Dave Kelso came in with a superb 67. However the winner for the second time this year following his victory in the Deemster Cowley was Paul Quayle with an excellent nett 66 despite a double bogey down the last! Paul’s card was very steady and full of 4s and 5s with one 2 and a couple of 6s; all of the top three players got a 2 on the 10th, but with that cross wind it was far from ‘easy’!!
A Knight to remember

5th Alex McAuley 147 2 143
6th David Cairns 175 16 143
Tom Archard Cup
1st Lee Morgan 143
2nd Peter Knight 144
It was a rare Peel Town Cup – Sunshine all the way although a challenging breeze clearly made scoring tough as the leader after the first lap, Lee Morgan, was the only player under par. His round of 69 nett 66 gave him a three shot cushion from Nick Watson on nett 69. On the second lap Peter Knight and Roy Norman were the only players in the 60s – and both of these had 65s - so they were way ahead of the field!! Therefore it was no surprise that Peter, Lee and Roy filled the top three slots with Roy coming in with 139, Lee on 137 and Peter taking the prize with 136.
Despite a double and treble bogey on 14 and 16 Lee reversed the places for the Tom Archard trophy to take first place with 143 and Peter was second with 144 whilst Island player Jamie Arneil from Ramsey took third place with 146.
Mike Horne in the prizes again - this time with Steve Lester
1st Steve Lester and Mike Horne
2nd Andy Campbell and Ian Forrest
3rd Joe Perruzza and Dave Kelso
1st Marilyn Brown and Joan Gibney
2nd Audrey Cringle and Kath Travers
1st Emma Harris and Peter Cubbon
2nd Robin and Kayleigh Dawson
3rd Jo and Owen Dawson
In the Men’s competition Mike Horne got his third podium finish of golf week following his 2nd place on Sunday and victory in the 4BBB – this time partnering Steve Lester who also did well on Monday with a third place. In second place was former Captain Ian Forrest, playing alongside Andy Campbell and in third place were two more in-form golfers - Dave Kelso picked up his 2nd third place prize of Golf Week and he was playing with British Legion winner Joe Perruzza.
In the Ladies Past Captain Audrey Cringle, playing with Kath Travers didn’t have the firepower to overcome the Lady Vice-Captain Marilyn Brown who partnered Joan Gibney.
Emma Harris took time off from playing in competitions in the UK to partner the wiley old fox and Willy Kirkpatrick semi-finalist Peter Cubbon. They beat the Dawsons who had their own family rivalry going on as dad and daughter, Robin and Kayleigh, came in ahead of mum and son, Jo and Owen!
Johnny Myers by the shortest of heads in the photo finish
1 MYERS, Mr JOHNNY 40 15c
2 Warrender, Mr Mel 40 21c
3 CORKILL, Mr Chris 40 11c
4 Smith, Mr Peter (Mount Murray) 40 12c
5 Taylor, Mr Craig 40 4c
6 Bayley, Mr Michael 39 9c
In the most closely contested competition of the week, the first 5 were all on 40 points, so it came down to countback. Craig Taylor had all of his best golf on the first nine with an excellent birdie on the tough 3rd, he then knocked in his approach shot at the only par 5 on the course to claim the ‘albatross’ prize that has been going longer than the Monty Python albatross sketch!! This helped Craig get to 23 points at the turn. With only 17 points on the back nine Craig was last of the 40s!! Peter Smith, from Mount Murray, and Chris Corkill had even 20 / 20 rounds with Chris just pipping Peter for third place by a point on the back six.
Mel Warrender had a great round with 8 pars playing off 21, but it was his very steady back nine of 21 points that secured him the runner-up spot. Sitting pretty in the clubhouse when he heard that there was a tie on 40 points was Island footballer Johnny Myers! His first nine was a scratchy affair, but as he hit the turn he put together 6 out of 7 pars as he came back with 23 points which gave him a 2 point cushion on the inward half and the trophy!
1 Paddy Delaney 41 points
2 Jessie Perry 40 points
3 Dave Kelso 39 points
In the John Sayle Seniors competition Jessie Perry flew the flag for the Ladies with a superb 40 points which was an even round of 20 / 20 and included a wonderful birdie on the 13th hole. The other two in the prizes really got going from the 10th. Dave Kelso birdied 10 and 12 as he put together a spell of 5 holes with 15 points, but then went off the boil to finish one adrift of Jessie. The winner though was Paddy Delaney, who blobbed on Jessie’s birdie hole but got a birdie of his own on 15 for 4 points! Apart from the 13th, Paddy was one over par for the rest of the back nine, scoring 24 points, to take the trophy by a point and get his handicap down low enough to get into the Peel Town Cup on Saturday – a target he’s been aiming at for ages!!!
The in-form pair of Mike Horne and Kenny Turner take the win!
1 Mike Horne and Kenny Turner 42 points
2 Steve Caley and Graham Shaw 40 points
3 Terry Quayle and Steve Lester 40 points
The Thomas Miller 4BBB kick started the weekday Golf Week competitions – and what a scorcher it was; blazing sunshine, no wind and Peel Golf Club in pristine condition. Terry Quayle and Steve Lester had some great holes with birdies on 1, 4, 5, 9 and 10, but then their challenge faltered a little to finish on 40 points with a weaker back nine. In second place and ahead of Terry and Steve on countback were Steven Caley and Graham Shaw who had a very steady round with 2 pointers on every hole but 4 which were 3 points, and these included birdies on the 5th and 17th. The winners were Mike Horne and Kenny Turner, following their 2nd placing in the Kirby Estates Am-Am and making up for the disappointment of losing the Congary Cup, with a very good round which included 21 points on both nines, with birdies on the 3rd, 14th and 17th and with only dropping two other shots, they were round in an excellent one under par to take a comfortable two point victory.
85 points wins 2 from 4 Am-Am
1st Ian Nicholson, Nick Lyman, Tony Harrison and Brian Coll 85 points
2nd Mike Horne, Kenny Turner, John McGillion and Alex Ironside 83 points
3rd Roy Norman, Richard and Alan Gault and Craig Taylor 83 points
The beautiful weather continues to match the condition of the course as the 4 person teams played in the 2 from 4 Am-Am kindly sponsored by Kirby Estates on the second day of Peel Golf Week!
In third place with 83 points just losing out on the back nine were Roy Norman, Richard and Alan Gault and Craig Taylor. Just beating them with a back nine of 43 points was the team including Mike Horne, Kenny Turner, John McGillion and Alex Ironside which included impressive birdies by Alex on the stroke index one 11th hole and Mike on the last!
However, the winning team on 85 was the team of Nick Lyman, Brian Coll, Ian Nicholson and Tony Harrison, with Ian recording a run of birdies on the 11th as well as on the 14th and 17th to bring his team home in 45 points for a two point margin of victory!
1 MORGAN, Mr Lee 69 4c 65 2 KIRKHAM, Mr Rob 74 8c 66 3 MIDDLETON, Mr Kevin 79 12c 67
Peel Golf Week started in blistering sunshine, with a stiff breeze which was straight into the face of the long driving hole! Early starter Daniel Bell had a huge drive on the 18th and nobody got past him all day! On the 10th and 17th the nearest the pin prizes went to Mike Bayley and Shaun Corrin.
In third place, Kevin Middleton, playing off 12, had a great start with pars on the first 4 holes and he continued to play a lot of steady golf, to finish with 12 pars and only to be thwarted by a couple of double bogies on short holes to finish with a nett 67.
In second place Rob Kirkham had his best round of the year by far as he went round in 74 for a nett 66 to get his handicap back to 7. However the winner was Lee Morgan, who continues his fine form for the season with a well deserved victory. With birdies on 5,7,9,10 and 13 he was well ahead of the field and battled through a couple of ‘blips’ in the run in to fend off Rob and Kevin to complete his round in level par for a nett 65 and a one shot victory.
Young Ben's 39 points is just enough!
Sunday 1st June
1 SMALLER, Mr BEN 39 7c
2 Dempsey, Mr Peter 39 13c
3 Harper, Mr John 38 21c
5 2s from 27 entries
Scratch league newcomer Ben Smaller spoiled the Senior’s party as Peter Dempsey was beaten into the runners up spot for the second time in a fortnight on countback and John Harper took third place with an excellent 38 points. Peter recorded a splendidly even scoring round with 2 points on all but 3 holes when he got 3 pointers. Ben’s card was looking very similar until he blobbed the 9th but a superb level par back nine gave Ben 22 points coming in to sneak past the unlucky Peter Dempsey!
Fellow Scotsman unable to Marr victory for Craig!
1 MARR, Mr CRAIG 41 13c
2 GARDNER, Mr Robert 41 6c
3 DELANEY, Mr PADDY 39 20c
6 2s from 73 entries
On a perfect sunny day at Peel, with the course in superb condition, it was a day for good scoring in the RNLI stableford competition. Nearly 20% of the field played to their handicap or better, but there were only 6 twos!! In third place, Paddy Delaney had 39 points, just ousting John Spellman and Lee Morgan; his round really came to light after the turn as he picked up 9 points from the 10th, 11th and 12th and came in with 21 points on the back nine to edge Lee who came back in level par for 20 points. In second place, despite stopping for his usual picnic half way round, was Rob Gardner on 41 points; Rob had a magnificent outward half, playing it in one under par for 22 points, however, despite a couple of birdies on the back nine, his 19 points were not enough to pip Craig Marr who also scored 41 points. There were no signs of a big score for Craig as he set off bogey, bogey, double bogey! Having dropped four shots on the first three holes, Craig, playing off a handicap of 13 proceeded to drop only 4 more shots in the rest of the round, coming back in 3 over par for 22 points on the back nine to pip his fellow Scotsman for the prize.
Joe is the icing on the cake!
1 PERRUZZA, Mr Joe 41 14c
2 Williams, Mr Dan 40 17c
3 BRERETON, Mr Mark 40 3c
8 2s from 56 entries
It was another good field for the Wednesday competition this week with 56 entries in the Royal British Legion Stableford competition. The early starters seemed to get the best of the conditions as it was the ‘day time’ crew who came in the top 3 with 2 of them going out in the morning. Mark Brereton, playing off 3 was first out and the fireworks started immediately! With birdies on 1,6 and 7 Mark reached the turn in two under par for a 21 point first nine; he continued to play well, but the birdies dried up as he accumulated 19 coming in for a total of 40 points in a one under gross round! Dan Williams had a very steady round with 2 points on 14 holes and 4 pars on shot holes to score an even 20 / 20 for 40 points and a handicap reduction to 15. The cream of the crop was Joe Perruzza who had 3 pars on shot holes in the first 5 holes and then topped it off with a 4 point birdie on the 9th and a back to back birdie 2 on the 10th. Despite a couple of ‘flakey holes’ on the back nine Joe came back in 19 points to take the win by a solitary point!
Saturday 24th May

Although rain was forecast, Saturday turned into a good day for scoring in one of Peel’s biggest competitions, the Mylchreest Centenary Cup. The wind dropped as the day went on and as the moisture went out of the greens, they were both true and getting quicker. 16 players played to their handicap or better. Simon Cowley was first out and he set the competition alight, playing off 15 – he notched up 10 pars and just struggled on stroke indices 1 and 3 as he went around in an excellent 79 for third place. Also with a nett 64 was John Matthews, playing off 21; John dropped 6 shots in the first 4 holes, but then steadied the ship as he came back in a superb 41 without a 6 on the back nine which edged him ahead of Simon into second place. The outright winner of the competition though was leftie Peter Leadley. Peter also dropped 6 shots in the first 4 holes and then proceeded to play the remaining 14 holes in 6 over par, coming back in a magnificent 37 with birdies on 10 and 12 to sneak past Simon and John for a much deserved victory.
Smith secures stableford with 41 points
1 Smith, Mr Guy 41
2 Bayley, Mr Michael 41
3 Dempsey, Mr Peter 40
16 2s from 66 entries
Summer returned briefly to Peel on Wednesday as a warm sunny evening greeted the clubnight players for the John Cowin Cup, which was a stableford off the Yellow tees which I’m sure John would have approved of.
With such fine conditions, it was no surprise that this was by far the biggest turnout for a clubnight this year with 66 entries; of these, 16 players played to their handicap or better and 26 were in their ‘buffer’ zone. The biggest problems the players had was the thick rough; whilst players could find their ball easily enough – getting out was tough, so it was important to keep the ball on the fairway[and Michael Craig didn’t bother WHICH fairway he found!]
In third place was Peter Dempsey, playing off 14, who had a couple of birdies by the 10th and finished with 11 points from the last 4 holes.
This late flourish was not enough to catch the top two who both had 41 points. Mike Bayley, playing off 12 had a blistering first nine including birdies on the second and the stroke index 4 8th for 23 points, but his back nine couldn’t match these fireworks and he came back in an even 18 points. The eventual winner, Guy Smith, also had two birdies on the first nine, but then on the back nine had birdies on 15 and 17 and a par on the 18th which is a shot hole to finish the back nine with 21 points to win the Cup on countback.
Shaw by 3 points? Absolutely certain!
1 SHAW, Mr Graham 43 points
2 OBrien, Mr John 40 points
3 Keane, Mr James 39 points
11 2s from 96 entries
The top four places in the Club Stableford on Saturday came from 2 fourballs, and with Fintan Suddards in 8th place – this was where all the good golf was being played and clearly they pushed each other on to great scores!
In third place Jimmy Keane just edged out Ste Caley with 39 points, as he steamed in at the end with 13 points from the last 5 holes. Jimmy nearly caught playing partner John O’Brien on 40 points, despite being 5 adrift after 10 holes, but John’s outstanding first nine of 22 points, which included a blob on the 7th was just too much to catch. Apart from this hole, John, playing off 10 was one under par for the first nine!!!
However, the winner by a massive 3 points was Graham Shaw with a blistering round of 74 playing off 12 for a Stableford score of 43 points, with the highlight being a birdie on the tough stroke index 4 8th hole – a rare feat for ANY golfer!
Quayle wins the Deemster's Trophy
Deemster Cowley Cup
1 QUAYLE, Mr Paul 80 15c 65
2 COWELL, Mr BOB 72 5c 67
3 Barron, Mr Arthur 80 13c 67
4 2s from 46 entries
Scoring was good on Wednesday for the Deemster Cowley Cup with 7 players playing to their handicap or better and 16 keeping in their ‘buffer’ zone. From the early starters, former Captain Arthur Barron set the pace with a fine 67 despite a disappointing double bogey on the last. From the evening starters one of the first to go out was Bob Cowell, who is in a rich vein of form having won the Tom Somers Cup and the Steve Taylor Cup already and doing very well in the Scratch League team. His 67 just pipped Arthur on the back nine and he was sitting in the clubhouse for much of the evening in top spot. However in the penultimate group out on the course his hopes of a third big prize were dashed by Paul Quayle who started with a birdie on the first and played superbly to get around to the 13th in 5 over par off his handicap of 15; as the realisation of what he was about to do set in he dropped a further five shots in the last six holes but finished a clear 2 shots ahead of Bob and Arthur and get his name on a trophy for the first time since he won the Brian Black back in April 2012 with John McGillion.

The Ballagarraghyn Cup is the oldest trophy played for at Peel golf club – dating back to 1901 when it was presented by the then President Mr.T.G.Mylchreest, who remained President until 1941.
This trophy has been sponsored by Edgewater Associates for a few years and they continued their generous sponsorship, providing prizes and a buffet at the presentation in the evening.
It was a day of sharp showers and a stiff breeze, making playing conditions challenging, and the leading golfers all got to the turn with no sign of the fireworks to come! The drinks provided by Edgewater Associates at half way had a massive impact on the golfers, and we thank all of the Edgewater staff who came out to support and provide the drinks for the Peel men! The refreshments clearly worked as all the leading players in the competition really started playing after the turn!!
Both Club Captain, Peter Bashforth and Chris Kelly were behind the card at the turn but came back in impressive style with Peter coming back in plus 3 and Chris, pipping him for second place with a back nine of plus 4.
However, in form golfer, Brian Horne completed back to back victories by taking the Ballagarraghyn Cup after his Newcombe Cup win midweek with a score of plus 3. This was despite falling behind the card immediately with a bogey 5 at the stroke index 18 first hole! Brian played some steady golf but reached the turn in minus 1, but it wasn’t until the 13th that the fireworks began. The 13th is always a tough hole and with the pin position at the front, it makes getting your second close a difficult proposition; not for Brian though – he birdied it to go one ahead of the card and then proceeded to birdie 16 and 17 before a par at the final hole brought him back in plus 4 to win by one! Brian is clearly in a very purple patch – so beware Peter Cubbon who is his opponent in the Willy Kirkpatrick knockout next Thursday!!

The Newcombe and Warren Cups were competed for on Wednesday evening in good conditions and the scoring was good with nearly a fifth of the field playing to par or better. Newcomber Simon Cowley nearly lived up to the trophy name with a nett 67, but it was a battle between 2 single figure men for the win. Craig Taylor played some superb golf to go round in 69 but it was Brian Horne off 8 handicap who just pipped Craig with a magnificent 72 for a nett 64.
In the Warren Cup, it was a battle of the 18 handicappers and Bobby Walker strolled to victory with an 89 nett 71, beating John Marshall by 3.
Gardner Blooms in the Leslie Kelly
1st Ian Gardner 45 Points
2nd Alan Gault 41 points
3rd Terry Quayle 41 points
16 twos from an entry of 135
Ian Gardner demolished the field in the Leslie Kelly Cup on Saturday, with an impressive card of 74 gross, playing off 14 handicap!! He had 3 fives, 14 fours and one three on his card – so when he gets the hang of the par 3 holes – beware!!! Alan Gault and Terry Quayle also had very good rounds of 41 points, but nowhere near challenging Ian! Alan’s card looked very similar to Ian’s – but playing off a lower handicap, he was never going to be in the hunt. Terry’s card was also a picture of steady golf, only blighted by a six on the 18th.

Shaun, Simon, Jim and Grant reach their peak in the Pyramid Am-Am
1st Shaun Corrin, Simon Marshall, Jim York & Grant Leece 87 points
2nd Peter Knight, Phil Christian, Jim McDonnell & Martin Murray 85 points
3rd Peter Manzi, John Perry, Paddy Whelan & Jeff Oates 84 points
This was a day for the in-form golfers. All the top three teams had winners of Turkeys from the October Turkey shoot competitions in their line-up. Paddy Whelan and Jeff Oates won the greensome, the team finishing second won the Am-Am and Shaun Corrin was one of the individual winners!
The Pyramid Am-Am is a team stableford competition taking the best score out of the four players for the first six holes, the 2 best scores for the second six holes and three best for the last six holes.
Essentially the competition gets started after 12 holes and so it proved on Saturday. After 12 holes Peter Manzi’s team had 48 points, Peter Knight’s 47 and the eventual winners were well back on 43 points. However, with Shaun, Simon Marshall, Jim York and Grant Leece all contributing a couple of 3 pointers over the next 5 holes as they averaged over 8 points for these holes, they took the competition by storm and breezed to a comfortable two point victory.
Tom Somers winner Chris Duff secures his second trophy of the season
1st Chris Duff 40 points
2nd Godfrey Kelly 39 points
3rd Darren McGuinness 39 points
4th Ray Hughes 39 points
The winter golfers continue to be spoilt, as another wind and rain free day greeted the competitors in the Harry Quirk Christmas Cup!
In 4th place enjoying these conditions, [albeit not quite like California!], Ray Hughes set off at great lick securing 3 birdies on 2,5 and 7, but faltering with a blob on the fourth. 20 points on the front nine was good going and an ultra steady back nine with eight pars and a bogey on the 13th got Ray 39 points and just off a podium finish.
In third place, new member Darren McGuiness matched Ray’s nines, but two pars on the last three holes with shots just edged him past Ray as he scraped a 6 down the last!
In second place, Island senior champion, Godfrey Kelly was back in form again after some early season struggles. An outward nine of 17 points was steady, but his round was revitalised on the stoke index one 11th where Kel notched a birdie for 4 points, followed by another birdie at the 12th. He really put himself in with a shout as he picked up his third birdie on 17, only to bogey 18 which left him one shy of victory, but well ahead in the countback stakes for second place.
Taking the trophy, and his second of the season, having won the Tom Somers early on in the season, was Chris Duff. He was having a good steady round to the 15th at one over twos, which was well out of the prizes, until he picked up a 3 pointer with a par on 16 followed by his ‘coup de grace’ – a birdie with a shot on the par 3 17th for four points! With a two point bogey on 18 Chris secured the win with a round of 40 points!
Win for Oates and Whelan
1st Jeff Oates and Paddy Whelan 43 points
2nd Paul Quayle and John McGillion 43 points
3rd Ian Forrest and Joe Perruzza 42 points
A glorious weekend started on Saturday morning with the fantasy skyline of the ‘red sky in the morning’ appearing beside Slieu Whallian on the Eastern side and a perfect rainbow framing Corrin’s Folly in the West despite there being no rain on the Golf Course! With no hint of wind, overhead conditions could not have been better and with the course standing up extremely well to the recent rain, it was a good day for golf!
From such a dramatic opening, things could surely only get worse!!!
However the golf was impressive, with 60% of the field achieving par or better, consequently the scoring was high.
In 3rd place was Committee man Ian Forrest and recently returned from the Lake District – Joe Perruzza. Their opening salvo gave no indication of what was to come as they struggled to 17 points on the outward nine before the fireworks set in on the back nine. Playing off 8 and 14, they came back in gross 31 for 25 points!!
However, this was not good enough as the top two pipped them by a point.
In second place was Paul Quayle and John McGilion who had a very consistent card, with just a couple of birdies and every score was 2 or 3 points as they accumulated an even 22 going out and 21 back.
The winners were Jeff Oates and Paddy Whelan whose nines matched Paul and John but they won it on the back 3. After getting a blob on 15 they proceeded to finish par, birdie, par for 10 points to take the victory!
It's McIver and James - again!
1st Rob McIver & Andy James H’cap 6.4 Gross 69 Nett 62.6
2nd Jimmy Keane & Brendan Conroy H’cap 8.2 Gross 73 Nett 64.8
3rd Peter Kingett & Rob Mason H’cap 10.8 Gross 76 Nett 65.2
After the calculators were put away to work out the handicaps at the start, the players could get down to playing golf in the greensomes format, with friendships tested to the limit!!
The three in the frame are regular pairings with third place Peter Kingett and Rob Mason having already reached the final of the club doubles knockout competition. Their score of 65.2 on a miserable Sunday morning started off really well and with both players off a handicap in double figures – getting two birdies by the 14th was impressive as they were only 4 over gross at this stage, but the foul weather clearly upset their game and although they dropped 3 shots on the last four holes they still finished with a good score.
In second place Jimmy Keane and Brendan Conroy took a while to get going having been at the Men’s Dinner the previous night!! Once their heads cleared after dropping 3 shots in the first five holes, they proceeded to go round the rest of the course in an impressive one over par to finish with 64.8.
The winners of the competition were Rob McIver and Andy James. Having won a fourball competition already this year, they were clearly a team to beat! Andy has been in fine form this season having been runner up in the singles knockout and recent winner of the Helen Crellin Memorial competition. However he was beaten in the knockout by his partner Rob who has also won the nett prize in the Club Championship, so the pair of them have amassed a lot of wins this season between them.
Consequently, the only problem they seemed to have was working out their handicap!!
They set off at a tremendous pace and after parring the easy opening hole they proceeded to birdie 2,3 and 4 in an outward nine of one under gross. On the way back they only managed to birdie the stroke index one for 35!! This meant they finished level par for a round of 62.6 for a comfortable winning margin of 2.2 shots!!
Win for Christian, Knight, McDonnell and Murray
1st Peter Knight, Phil Christian, Jim McDonnell and Martin Murray 38 points
2nd Peter Cubbon, Clive Patterson, Kevin Timson and Ivan Holmes 36 points
3rd Chris Duff, Paul Sheffield, Darren McGuiness and Steven Rough 36 points
Although Sunday was the better day weather wise, it was the Saturday morning crew that took all of the prizes in the 2 from 4 Am-Am Turkey Shoot. The target that groups set in this competition is to average ‘level 5s’ to get to 90 points, and whilst no groups achieved that target – there were a lot of good scores as the work that has been done on the greens made the chipping and putting a bit more challenging!
In third place with 3 birdies on the card and ruing a poor 18th hole when they had to put two bogeys on the scorecard were Paul Sheffield, Chris Duff, Darren McGuiness and Steven Rough who had 87 points.
One up from them was Peter Cubbon, Clive Patterson, Kevin Timson and Ivan Holmes. They were catapulted into the lead by Kevin and Ivan’s pars on the 8th followed by Cubby’s TWO on the par 4 9th!! A woeful 15th and 16th holes stopped them from hitting the 90 point target and knocked them off the leadership – and they ended up one point shy of victory.
The winning team was Peter Knight, Phil Christian, Jim McDonnell and Martin Murray who had 8 birdies and an eagle in an impressive round! Peter Knight stuck his tee shot on the 12th to within a few feet for an eagle two whilst Phil Christian’s tee shot was also close for him to notch a birdie. This team also managed to get round with 4 points being their lowest score on any hole, demonstrating great consistency for a deserved victory!
Shane chalks up his first big win!
1st Shane Moss 38 points
2nd Derek Daley 36 points
3rd Dave Richards 36 points
4th Terry Moore 35 points
The Anti-Cancer is a competition played over the whole weekend; however, as Saturday was a washout, the winners came from those playing on Sunday which turned out to be a nice day! With lots of good back nines from the leaders going to the 18th hole - this final hole caused problems for most of the leaders. Shane Moss, Dave Richards, Ian Nicholson and Derek Daley all stepped onto the 18th tee with 35 points; Ian blobbed it to move out of the winners enclosure. Derek and Dave scored a point to get to 36 points; however, the man taking the prize was Shane Moss, playing off 27, he came down the last with a superb 5 to give him 3 points and a two point cushion to win with 38 points. Shane had a steady start, but his card was significantly enhanced approaching the turn with a birdie on 7 and a par on 9. Blobs on 12 and 13 looked to have put paid to his card until he scored a 4 pointer and two 3 pointers in the last 5 holes, to accumulate 14 points down this stretch!
6 Moore birdies in a gross 67 for Terry!
1st Terry Moore 67 nett 64
2nd Trevor Boyles 75 nett 64
3rd John O’Brien 76 nett 66
4th Guy Smith 72 nett 66
Despite the forecast – the conditions for most of the golfers on Saturday were good, hence a lot of low scores. Topping the list of 5 players on 66 was John O’Brien in 3rd place overall. His superb back nine of 36 (playing off a ten handicap), which included two 2s, was always going to be tough to beat!!!
However the top two were a couple of shots ahead of the field with 64s. In second place was Trevor Boyles, playing off eleven handicap who was having the round of his life - a round that most golfers could only dream of. As he stood on the 17th tee he had had 6 birdies and was one under par gross, but that was when the dream became a nightmare as he proceeded to drop seven shots on the last two holes! This put him level with the eventual winner and ruined his back nine – but he will be able to look on the bright side - his round must have done his eclectic a world of good!!
In first place was Terry Moore who had a gross 67 playing off 3 and like Trevor he had 6 birdies on his card, so it will be interesting to see how these rounds affect the Eclectic scores!
1st Shaun Corrin 75 nett 64
2nd Geoff Lovett 84 nett 65
3rd John McGillion 75 nett 65
4th Ian Forrest 73 nett 65
On a nice day in Peel with a breeze that affected club selection, but wasn’t too challenging and the greens slowing a little, scoring was good again for the Turkey Shoot. With Ian Forrest firing in 2 twos, his score of 65 looked good, but John McGillion and Geoff Lovett had better back nines to take 3rd and runner up spots. The winner though, with an excellent 64 was Willy Kirkpatrick winner Shaun Corrin who had three birdies on his card.
Just a sec! Guy's a winner.
1st Guy Smith 69 nett 63
2nd John Ball 74 nett 63
3rd Mike Horne 69 nett 63
4th Michael Craig 74 nett 65
Dark mornings and evenings, leaves falling off the trees, pick and place rules on the fairway and the Turkey shoot eclectic all signal the end of the summer season and the move to winter golf!
However on Saturday, beautiful conditions, especially in the afternoon when the sun came out, greeted the golfers; with only a light breeze and warm temperatures it was ‘shirtsleeve’ golf for most. The greens are still in great nick and rolling true albeit slower than in the height of summer which is what is to be expected as they get wetter.
With 115 entries there were 31 golfers who played to their handicap or better in the medal competition. Michael Craig knocked in a long putt on the 18th for an excellent 65 which must have given him hope for winning the competition, but 3 players bettered this score by two shots! Playing off 6 handicaps Mike Horne and Guy Smith both birdied 15 and 17, but dropped shots in the middle of the back nine cost Mike and he finished 3rd. In between these 6 handicappers John Ball had a very good card but lost it on countback to Guy who came back in one under gross for the win.
With so many good scores in, the eclectic promises to be very competitive over the next three weeks!

Jack 'n Dave golf loopy!
1 Dave Kelso and Jack Fenna 60
2 Graham Shaw and Brian Bodell 61
3 Bob Clague and Ken Mitchell 61
4 Godfrey Kelly and Brian Mellor 61
5 Ian Forrest and Jim Sharples 61
6 Ian Gardner and Paul Richardson 61
Dave Kelso and Jack Fenna rolled back the years to produce an outstanding performance in shooting 60. It was a perfect day for low scoring with no wind and the course in great condition with the greens still having good pace in them. There were lots of teams in contention, but with Dave producing 5 birdies, he and Jack came back in 27 to pip 7 pairs who recorded 61s!!
In second place, despite losing his wedge last week, was Graham Shaw playing alongside Brian Bodell; they came back in 29 to lead the chasing pack, but the team of Bob Clague and Ken Mitchell came closest to the winners, with Ken having birdied 15 and 16 but they weren’t able to take advantage of shots on 17 and 18 which pushed them back into 3rd slot.
Another great effort came from Island Seniors champion Godfrey Kelly and Brian Mellor, who between them had three 2s on their card, including an eagle on the 12th for Godfrey, but this was only good enough for 4th place!
All in all there were 11 pairs who came within 2 shots of the winners, so it was a very close competition throughout the day!
Winning Team - Brian Coll [23 points], Craig Marr [18 points] and Peter Griffiths [15 points]
There was a great turn out for the 2nd Autumn Clubnight in windy conditions. This clearly didnt bother Terry Quayle and Brian Coll who both shot 23 points - but it wasnt an individual competition and everyone had to wait until all the players were in before the draw for the teams of 3. With the first team of three out of the hat getting 52 points, Terry Quayle, Dan Bentham and Andy Colgan were looking good until the three of Mark Hide, Simon Whewell and Robin Dawson were drawn, who equalled them. However the winning team came from the penultimate team drawn out of Brian Coll [23 points], Craig Marr [18 points] and Peter Griffiths [15 points], and Craig and Peter made sure they got Brian a drink for his contribution!!
Alex Ironside takes the Masters and Ian Begley the Non- Masters
1 Alex Ironside 79 nett 68

Best Gross Ray Hughes 74
At the weekend it was the Masters and non-Masters competitions. With Saturday being the calm before the storm, and the greens still in superb condition with plenty of pace in them – it was a day for good scoring. Or so it would seem! 9 players played under their handicap, but everyone had double, triple, quadruple and even a quintuple bogey on their card to spoil a promising score!!
Alex Ironside had the best example of a game of two halves EVER to win the Masters with a nett 68. He was ten over par after 5 holes, including the quintuple bogey 9 on the fourth hole! He then proceeded to pick up four birdies and came back in one under par gross 33 for his nett 68, and nobody was going to beat his back nine on countback!!. This was a classic example of never giving up as Alex finally hit his early season form again! Chris Duff came second on countback as he pipped Willy Kirk winner Shaun Corrin, Stu Clifford and Craig Drummond who were all also on 68.
In the Non-Masters Ian Begley followed his good form in last week’s Steve Taylor Cup into a winning score this weekend. Ian had a triple and double bogey on his card, but steadied himself throughout the rest of his round, playing the last seven holes in one over par to card a 79 nett 67. He beat Steven Rough who will have nightmares over his last hole! Standing on the final tee, Steven just needed a 7 or better to win the competition, but a quadruple bogey 8 put him level with Ian on 67, losing it on countback, but still equalling the best scores of the day!
This weekend’s scores has seen a plethora of ‘what might have been’ scenarios and numerous examples of the highs and lows of golf that could be a script for the next blockbusting soap opera!!!
