Rockmount golfers rule in Rafferty Cup

10 October 2018

ROCKMOUNT Golf Club were crowned Ronan Rafferty champions for the second time in 10 years at the weekend.

The local lads faced formidable opposition in the form of Killymoon Golf Club, and the standard of golf during both legs of the final was outstanding. 

Rockmount’s classy juniors held their nerve to get their hands on the trophy and team captains Stuart Thompson and Gareth Poole were more than delighted at the club’s success.

“We were impressed by the standard of golf and professionalism shown by the squad throughout the tournament, and especially in the final where the team were pushed to the very end to get the win over the line,” Stuart said.  

This win came on the back of a successful season for the young men and women of Rockmount, which included the semi-finals of the Fred Daly Plate and the Norman Drew competitions.  

They also reached the final of the Johnny Dickson, and a young and inexperienced team finished second in the Eddie Harper Cup.  

With a strategy in place at Rockmount to bring the young blood through the ranks of the club, the future is looking bright.
