Derryveagh Crystal Schools' Golf Championship

Golf 2018

CCS v Crana College

In a changed knockout format, CCS were paired with local rivals, Crana College. The Buncrana team enjoyed home advantage in the first leg, played in perfect golfing conditions at Northwest Golf Club, Buncrana. Jack Duffy secured the individual prize for Crana College with a magnificent 4 under par round. However, great credit must go to the CCS boys who battled away to win the overall team score for the day. Martin O'Connor, Ryan Collins and Cormac Monagle all scoring well on an unfamiliar course.

The return leg was played in very challenging conditions at Ballyliffin Golf Club. The CCS boys certainly made most of home advantage, winning both the individual and team prizes. Martin O'Connor secured the individual honours with a brilliant 32 points in near gale force playing conditions. Ryan Collins won second with a very respectable 29 points. Cormac Monagle ensured a clean sweep for the CCS team when he posted the final score to ensure passage into the next round for CCS.
