It was a busy weekend of interclub matches for Cairndhu’s golfers, with four crunch ties played over Sunday and Monday.

The Ulster Cup team stole the limelight after they defeated Co. Fermanagh’s Castle Hume in their quarter-final first leg.

Other results did not go quite to plan, but there is a true sense of pride at the club for the team captains and players in reaching the closing stages of the Barton Shield, Junior Cup and Fred Daly competitions.

The Ulster Cup last-eight match proved to be a close affair with Cairndhu securing a 4 - 3 lead to take to the return leg, which will be played at Castle Hume GC on Sunday, August 11 (tee-off, 2pm).

Ronnie Ferguson’s Fred Daly team took on Belvoir Park GC at Masserene Golf Club on Sunday in the competition’s first semi-final. As expected, the match turned out to be very close, but it went the way of Belvoir over the last holes and they secured a 5-2 win.

Barton Shield team captain Stephen Taggart took his team to Shandon Park Golf Club on Sunday where they lost out to Clandeboye in the semi-final against a very strong North Down side.

Twenty-four hours later Cairndhu’s Junior Cup team travelled to Moyola Park Golf Club to play the Roe Park GC in the semi-final of this year’s competition. It proved to be a very close match and it went the way of Roe Park in a 3 - 2 win.
