Cairndhu hosted Letterkenny Golf Club in the first leg of the Ulster Cup final on Sunday (September 15).

High winds interspersed with heavy showers didn’t stop some very good golf being played by both sets of players.

However, it was the Cairndhu team who coped best with the conditions and they recorded a 6 - 1 win in the first leg.

Team captain Moorland Holmes will take his squad to Letterkenny GC on Sunday (September 22) for the return leg (tee-off 1pm).

The team wishes to thank the greens staff for their hard work which ensured that the course was not only playable, but in immaculate condition.
