2017-08-14 Senior Golfers MUSA & SUSA

From Joe Annett 14 Aug 2017


Senior Golfers in Kilkeel Golf Club.


In 1998, the Senior golfers in Kilkeel had organised a regular 9 hole sweep among themselves every Wednesday. The originators of this were Ron Howard (now deceased) and Freddie Barter.  This became very popular and in 1999 both Freddie and Ron met with Brendan McClean from Mourne GC with the aim of forming a league between interested clubs.

In 1999 the MUSA B (Mid Ulster Seniors Alliance) league was formed, with both Kilkeel and Greenore providing two teams each. Other member clubs were Armagh, Edenmore, Lisburn, and Mourne.

In 2003 a number of other clubs including Dundalk, Dungannon, Ardee, Mannan Castle, and Killeen Park joined up and the SUSA (South Ulster Senior Alliance) came into existence, with the second teams from both Kilkeel and Greenore joining this group.

Kilkeel's first foray into the MUSA league contained some of the following players:
Freddie Barter, Ron Howard, Bertelli Phillips, Brian Grant, Pat Quinn, Pat McAteer, Raymond Walker, Bob Hughes, Pat Cotter, John Beggs, Malcolm Frost, John Morrow, Sean McVeigh, Henry Killen, Lymon Feron, Leslie Rolland, Cyril Morris, Eric McGuffin, Billy Morris and Tommy O'Hare.

(There were many more players, so forgive me for not getting all of them.)

Over the last years we have competed successfully in both leagues, and a number of the original members of SUSA and MUSA (which was for players aged 60 years or over) have progressed to now compete in the Kennedy Trophy, a similar league but this time geared for players aged 70 years or over.

Team captains this year are Sean McVeigh who is in charge of the Kennedy team, Willie Sloan who looks after the MUSA team, and Vincent Smith who runs the SUSA team.

Currently all 3 teams are close to the top of their individual leagues, and with only a few series of games to play, we hope that at least one of them will be victorious.

The photo below kindly sent by Freddie is of the first gatherings of the MUSA squad.
