The second oldest inter club competition, the Junior Cup was first played for in 1900 and was won by Portmarnock. Since then over 60 different clubs have added this impressive piece of silverware to their trophy cabinetFrom 2018, the lowest handicap permissable in the Junior Cup will be 4, the previous limit having been 5. 


In the worst of the conditions, Donaghadee Golf Club overcame a shaky start to lead the qualifiers at a fantastically prepared Donaghadee golf course.

Aaron Small, Peter Roberts and Willie NcCutcheon all shot 78’s and an 81 from Darren Whiteside with a battling performance from Steve Davis meant that Dee were top qualifiers.

A massive thanks to Andy Clegg, Neill Boyd, Garth Boyd, Craig Lyall and Howard McCutheon for caddying.

The GUI commented on the quality of the golf course so a big thanks to James and his team. We are all looking forward to the next round.
