More success on the domestic front this week as we had three
teams in action. On Good Friday we sent our Junior Foursomes team into action
at the nearby Gold Coast and again our boys didn’t disappoint. Playing well,
our young team led the qualifiers and will now face Waterford Castle in the
area final. Next up we faced Clonmel at Clonmel in the second round of the Fred
Daly Trophy. Again, our boys played well
and we easily accounted for Clonmel. Our Ladies Minor team were in action on
Monday and faced a difficult match against Harbour Point. But our girls have
prepared well for this match and, enjoying home advantage we were quick of the
blocks. Niamh Reynolds and Cathie O’Mahony were playing superb stuff and got
two points on the board early. But the last three matches were tight and Carmel
O’Brien and Mary Power of them were going down tie-holes. However, Bridget
Ahearn was excelling in her anchor role and duly finished her game on 17 to
give us an excellent victory against tough opponents. Manager June James was
naturally delighted and proud of her team.
Our Shanley Classic is into its last week finishing this
Sunday 28th April we encourage all our members and visitors to
support our Club Team’s Fundraiser for 2019. Kindly sponsored by Shanley
Our Easter Golf Scramble took place on Bank Holiday Monday April 22nd. The Social Committee organised another fantastic evening of social golf fun followed by refreshments in the clubhouse afterwards. We had a fantastic turnout and the fine weather had everyone in great spirits.
