Strandhill Lodge & Suites Winter League Final

The Strandhill Lodge & Suites sponsored Winter League came to a close today with 18 hole final for both the qualifiers and the non qualifiers.

The top four from each group progressed to the main final while the remainder of the pairings advanced to the non qualifiers final.

The golf got underway at 10:30 under a shotgun start which saw all competitors start their rounds simultaneously from different tee boxes throughout the course.

Persistent misty rain made conditions difficult for the entire 18 holes of the final but despite this some outstanding scores were returned.
