Buggle wins first 'Major' of 2020 at Virginia GC

The first 'Major' of the local golfing year took place last weekend in Virginia Golf Club with the playing of Mr Tom Hutchinson’s President’s Prize.

In all, an impressive 87 players took part in Saturday's 18-hole qualifier with the top 27 making it through to a nine-hole play-off on Sunday evening.

"On a golf course that was a credit to the Course Convenor, Victor and Greenkeepers Brian and Peter, a good test was had on the field," stated club PRO Peadar Gill.

In the end, Dubliner Ciaran Buggle (pictured with Tom Hutchinson), with a level par 32 shots (Gross) in the playoff, added to his Qualifier Nett 64, prevailed to take the honours. Full list of prize-winners will be available at the presentation night which will be held at a suitable time and date in the near future.

The fixtures for the next few weeks at Virginia GC are as follows:

July 18th/19th, Singles Stableford

July 25th/26th Medal, August 1st/2nd Medal

August 8th/9th Mr Declan Smith, Captains Day 1

August 15th/16th, Captains Day 2.
