A thrilling weekend at the club as our Ladies Intermediate
Cup team were in action against Cahir in the first round. The team of Bernie
Hayes, Maura Kindregan, Angela Murphy, Fidelma Fitzgerald and June James faced
a difficult game against a strong Cahir team, and through the front nine, the
outcome remained delicately poised. Angela Murphy was producing fireworks and
turned 4 up but there was nothing to choose in the remaining games. Bernie had
a rough start and was 3 down early but rallied to turn 1 up. However, a couple
of missed putts cost Bernie and she was beaten on 16. Angela continued to play
excellent golf and closed out her match on 15 to level proceedings. But it was
proving to be a titanic struggle. Fidelma got off to a slow start and was 3
down early but she hung on to curtail the damage before succumbing on the 15th.
Now it was up to Maura and June.
Maura was playing beautiful golf and was dormie on
16. However, the Cahir girl produced quality golf, holing a great 6 foot putt on
eighteen to force the game into tie holes. But our girls are made of stern
stuff as well and Maura produced a brilliant chip and 4 foot putt for a winning
par on the 19th to tie the overall match. It was now left to June in
Match 5 and she was involved in an epic battle. Urged on by great home support
and displaying her cool temperament, June calmly rolled in a 6 footer on 17 to
remain all square. A half on 18 meant the deciding game headed for tie-holes. A
brilliant chip and 6 foot putt from June brought the game down the 20th.
An overhit approach over the second game looked like curtains for us, but again
June produced a chip shot that our Senior Cup team would have been proud of, to
bring the match up the 21st.
Getting a shot on the hole, this was June’s chance and she didn’t disappoint hitting a brilliant approach to 8 feet. The Cahir girl was playing beautiful golf but couldn’t match June on this occasion as June calmly rolled to ball to gimme range for an epic and nerve-wracking win. Well done to all concerned, including managers and caddies. Our practice really paid off and this win will be remembered for a long time.
In other news, Cahir extracted some revenge by
beating our Challenge Cup team in Cahir. Many of our girls were playing for the
club for the first time, and it will prove to be valuable experience. Many
thanks to our team, managers and caddies for their efforts.
It’s the second week of April and that means its
Masters Week. The first major of the season kickstarts the golfing season and every
golfer will be glued to the TV. Our PGA Pro David is running his customary
sweep and you can enter in the Pro Shop for a fiver. David is tipping Ricky
Fowler and the “Hole-in-One”. You heard it here first!

Pat Mc Carthys team of Catherine Dwyer, Mary Fennell, Louise Moloney and Bridget O ‘ Shea were clear winners followed in second place by Peter Moloney’s team of Ann Curran , Marcella Mc Govern and Helen O’ Shea.
