Conall McCrory Memorial Tournament
On Thursday 15th June up to 40 junior golfers from the CBS took part in the Conall McCrory Memorial tournament. The weather held up well and Omagh golf course was in magnificent condition for all the players who took part in both the 18 hole and 9 hole competition. In the end CBS golf captain Jordan Hyland emerged victorious with 37 Stableford points, just piping Jack Darcy on 36 points. Jordan was delighted to have won the fantastic replica Claret Jug, donated by Conall’s parents Ciaran and Mary for the tournament winner. Jordan played with and against Conall many times in the past at all levels and it was fitting that he should claim the crown of ‘Champion Golfer’ on this occasion.

Omagh CBS retained the coveted Passmore Shield with a narrow 7 games to 5 victory over Omagh Academy at Omagh golf course on Thursday 29th September. This is the 3rd year of the competition which had been started up again to help promote junior golf in the area in honour of the late Peter Passmore.
The match was played in a great sporting manner and the standard of golf was excellent. In the morning foursomes the CBS gained a narrow 2.5 to 1.5 lead but all the matches were very tight indeed. Conor Byrne and Jordan Hyland did well to hold off Scott Young and Scott Ballantine while the Academy’s Harry Evason and Charlie McKinney held on to score a point for their team. Luke Hamill and Joel Smyth gained another half point for the Academy as they played out a thrilling half match with Jack Darcy and Sean Monan. In the final match Academy pairing of Katy Ballantine and Emma Job pushed Jacob Corry and Sean McGowan all the way before narrowly losing out.
In the afternoon singles again the play was of the highest quality with Eamonn McAleer squeezing out a half point for the CBS in the first game out. All 8 singles matches hung in the balance right up until the end with Charlie Donnelly’s fight back from 2 down with 2 to play, securing the match for the CBS with a half point.
