The singles matchplay championship was won by Paddy Judge, who defeated Joe Cull in the final. The mixed foursomes matchplay championship was won by Bernardine Jennings and Roddy Cooper (photo above), who defeated Jackie Reville and Damian Jennings in the final. The Golfer of the Year Commodore’s Cup was won by Billy Quinn, the Bob Fannin Trophy was won by Roddy Cooper, the Horn Trophy was won by our President Bryan Lynch, and the Golfer of the Year Putter Trophy was won by Joe Cull. An excellent dinner rounded off the day.
