A great weekend to be Irish as Munster
& Leinster kicked ass in the Rugby while Shane Lowry took home a million
euro and Conor Purcell from Portmarnock became the first Irishman to win the
Australian Amateur title. Another busy week at the club with the kind weather
lending to much golf being played. We also hosted a Rules night which had a
great turn out and a very successful Poker Classic.
Our Rules night presented by GUI & ILGU officials proved to be an interesting affair. It goes to show that Golf Rules can be tricky affairs as even the officials were unable to answer a couple of questions presented by the members. Even the Pros on TV were struggling to come to grips with the changes. However, members should note that it is your responsibility to know the Rules. As always, our resident PGA Professional David is on hand to explain the Rule changes.
No rest for the wicked as our Spring
League, kindly sponsored by our resident PGA Professional David Hayes kicks off
this Wednesday 23rd January. Running until March 10th,
the format remains the same as last year with everyone competing in a Singles
format till the final week where the leading qualifiers in each category will
be put into a team of 4. Following the success of the Winter League with almost
1200 rounds played, we hope that the Spring League will follow in a similar
vein. We wish all competitors the best of luck.
Captain David Shanley presented the prizes for our Winter League kindly sponsored by David Hayes PGA. Captain David was delighted with the number of participants for the League and thanked all concerned in running such a successful event and those who attended the prizegiving.

The clubhouse was busy on Sunday
afternoon (20th Jan) with the Winter League Prizes being
presented by the sponsor David Hayes – all smiles from the winners and
“blazers”! Many thanks to David who generously sponsors many events
throughout the year. The Lotto gets an income boost each time there is an event
in the clubhouse and the fundraising committee are very appreciative of this.
The weekly Lotto draw took
place after the presentations to the prize winners. The numbers drawn were 9,
12, 18 and 27. There was no winner of the
Jackpot which increases to €2,300 next week!
We had four Match 3 winners
this week – Bob O’Brien, Ollie O’Neill, Mark Raher and Pat and Ann Harty – they
each win €25. Congratulations to each of them.
This week we would like to
thank the card players who play 45 on Thursday nights and the Friday morning
Bridge players – they are great supporters of the Lotto each week and this is a
great help in increasing weekly income.
The draw next Sunday will be held at 4:30pm in the clubhouse. All are welcome.
