Finn Harps Golf Classic 2020 A Great Success

Ballybofey & Stranorlar Golf Club was again the venue as Finn Harps in association with the Harps Academy hosted a competitive and successful annual Golf classic on Sunday.  The necessary covid protocols were all in place, but didn’t take away from the usual warm welcome from B&S club staff and the great weather also played its part in a hugely enjoyable day.  

The first of over 50 teams teed off in morning sunshine before 8am and were followed by teams from right across the North-West including Inishowen, Gweedore, Killybegs and Derry all hoping to win great prizes generously sponsored by Murvagh Golf Club and Harvey's Point.

The Stableford rules/champagne classic was played in great spirits with a well-groomed B&S course providing a scenic backdrop for some great golf.

The light was dimming as last participating team dropped their scorecards in shortly after 8pm- enabling final count to take place which showed the 2020 winners with 97 points were Lee Henderson, Jamie Breslin, Lorcan Farrell and Paddy McDermott.

Reflecting on a great day Youth Development Officer James Rodgers said “I would like to thank all the participating teams who made the day a huge success. The necessary protocols were all followed with a great spirit of cooperation which ensured everyone  enjoyed a great day’s golf.  We were delighted Harte Insurance came on board as main event sponsor this year so we would thank them for their fantastic support.  We would also like to thank all the staff at Ballybofey & Stranorlar Golf Club for their great hospitality and help in ensuring compliance with covid protocols went as smoothly as possible.”
