Donie a cut above

OUR final Druids Glen Golf Resort/Irish Independent Golfer of the Month award of the year goes to Donie O'Donovan of Bandon Golf Club.
Donie played a key role in helping Bandon win their first Irish Senior Cup title in the GUI Bulmers Cups and Shields finals held at Castlebar last month.
The 52-year-old played for Bandon in 1978 when the club won the Munster Barton Shield, and has remained a stalwart of the Cork club. He had the pleasure of competing in the Senior Cup decider against Lurgan with his son Brian -- who was also in the Bandon team -- and to round off the story very nicely, Donie's result clinched the match for the Cork club.
Donie wins an overnight stay for two people at Druids Glen Golf Resort, plus a round for two on the Druids Glen and Druids Heath courses.
