Brona clinches Ladies Open competition at Newtown
Brona Slevin had a good win in the Ladies Open sponsored by the Mellon Country Inn at Newtownstewart Golf Club recently when she came out on top, with Caroline Ballentine in second place.
Brona had a busy few days as she also organised the Junior Captain's Day event on Friday when all the juniors had a great day out.  The Harron family sponsored trophies for both boys and girls which was a great way to honour their parents who were both past captains of Newtownstewart and much appreciated by the club.
David Lyttle continued his great form when he won the boys' 18 holes competition with a fantastic nett 62 and Jeannie McCaffrey won the girls' 18 hole event. Daniel McKee was victorious in the nine hole event and Freddie Moore won the four hole competition.
On Saturday in the Hamilton's Spar sponsored Open Stableford there was some fantastic scoring and Clark Elkin came out on top with 44 points, with Richard Barbour in second place with 43 points. On Sunday in the Buchanan Fuels Open Stroke and Monthly Medal the scoring got better with Danny Ball shooting a fantastic 61 to win by five clear shots.
This Saturday the lady captain, Karen Ballentine, has her big day and all the members wish her a great event.
