Rainey OB RFC held a successful Golf Classic at Moyola Park Golf Club on 16th June.


Over 40 fourballs participated in the successful event and and the Hole sponsors were recognised on the large sponsors board on the first tee and which is now on display at Hatrick Park.


Once again JC Halliday’s sponsored a car for a hole in one at the Fifth hole.  The ‘Spotters’ Louise Flanigan and Claire Doyle thought they were in for a busy day when Jackie Averill, playing in the second four ball of the day landed his tee shot to within 2 feet of the pin.  However, nobody managed an ace and Jackie was rewarded with the nearest the pin prize.



Team Prizes- First – Robin Kennedy Fourball

                        Second - Jackie Averill Fourball

                        Third- Connor Lavery Fourball


Longest Drive - Liam Craig

Nearest the Pin – Jackie Averill


At the prize presentation, Rainey President Paul Flanigan thanked Moyola Captain John Riddell for allowing the Club to avail of the superb facilities at Moyola Park GC.  He also thanked Hugh McGoldrick for ‘double jobbing’ as Moyola GC President and a member of the Rainey Golf Classic Committee.  A fantastic buffet meal was provided by Back 9 Bistro.


Brian Wilson, Arnie McLean & John Overend once again excelled in obtaining sponsorship and Fourball teams for the Classic.  A back-room staff of Brian Smyth, Heather Thornton and Rory Flanigan provided further contributions to the successful event.


The Club would like to acknowledge the contribution of JC Halliday for their sponsorship and providing a car for the Hole-in-One prize.


Rainey OB RFC are grateful to everyone who contributed to the event, particularly those who played in the tournament or provided sponsorship and prizes.  We hope to see you all again next June at Moyola Park.
