Toland and McCloskey win Qualifiers at Roe Park thumbnailBarry Toland, winner of Thursdays’ Roe Park Qualifier, teeing off at the first hole at Roe Park.

IT was one of the busiest weeks of the year last week at Roe Park as Irish Open fever started to hit across the North Coast.
There was plenty to play for with two Captains' Prize competitions and the annual Roe Park Cup Qualifier Stableford competitions.
First up was Thursday's Qualifier which was played in superb weather conditions and saw a huge turnout from members keen to make the top four positions and qualify for the Matchplay finals. Barry Toland was the victor and qualified comfortably by scoring a superb score 43 points. His winning round included 10 pars and a birdie at the tough par 3 12th hole. John Lee found some form to finish runner-up with 41 points and Paul Cobb took third with a solid 39 points. Nigel Mearns scored 36 points to take the gross prize and the final qualifying spot.
The second Qualifier took place on Saturday which again saw a huge turnout from members.
Joe McCloskey played brilliantly to secure a play-off spot by winning with an excellent score of 41 points. The runner-up spot went to Brian Tierney who beat third place man Ian Moore on count back as both scored 40 points. Kieran Berryman secured the final playoff spot by winning the gross prize with 37 points.
Lady's Captain Christine Wilson hosted the annual Captains' Prize for Men with some fantastic prizes on offer.
Nigel Mearns helped himself to one of those prizes by winning with a fantastic score of 42 points. He shot 12 pars and four birdies on his way to a two under round 68. Runner-up was Stephen 'Stubby' Boyd who also scored 42 points but was just beaten on count back. Third place went to Michael Mullan who scored 41 points.
Men's Captain Arnold Simpson hosted the annual Captains' Prize for Ladies again with fantastic prizes on offer.
