After last week’s disappointing loss in the Barton Shield
area final, we were looking to restore some pride in the jersey with four
matches taking place this week.
JB CARR TEAM
Our JB Carr team had an excellent hard-fought
victory over Mahon GC in the Munster Quarter Final second leg which was played
last week. We held a 3-2 lead
after the first leg and we were at home for last week’s matches. We again had a
3-2 margin in our favour to achieve a 6-4 aggregate victory.
The first two matches were
extremely tight and we lost both on the 18th. We then won two quick points on
the 16th through Pat Stack and Johnny Norris followed immediately by PJ
Kindregan and Pat Breen. This left one match still in play. Declan Walsh and
John G Moloney took a 1 up lead on the 17th and with a half in par on 18, they
came through with a 1 up victory (but it’s never as straightforward as it
Next up is a Munster Semi Final and our opponents are Tralee
GC. We will play them over two legs, home and away. Tralee are at the top of
the draw and they will have the choice of venue for the first leg.
MIXED FOURSOMES TEAM
On the same evening our Mixed Foursomes team were playing
the Munster quarter final against Thurles at Mitchelstown. Manager Joanne
Fitzgerald selected our strongest team in John Reynolds, Rachel Kiely, Damien
Burns, Lorraine Troy, Kevin Walsh, Majella Moynihan, Donal Williams, Linda
Buckley, Eoin Brackett and Mary Power.
John & Rachel played well but were always behind in their game
eventually losing on the last. Damien & Lorraine were producing some
fabulous stuff and ran out comfortable winners to lever proceedings.
All to play for with three matches remaining but it was
proving to be a tight affair. Donal and Linda were also playing well and were
dormie two up with Kevin and Majella were all square playing the final hole. At
almost the same moment, Donal hit a wonderful chip stone dead as Kevin holed a four-footer
for victory and send us forward to the Munster finals in Castletroy.
JUNIOR CUP TEAMS
Over the weekend our Junior Cup teams were in action but unfortunately things didn’t go our way. Our Gents team were beaten by Williamstown by the odd match in 5. Hard luck to our Ladies Junior Cup team who were beaten by East Cork in the Quarter Final on the 18th hole. They put up a tremendous performance and were unlucky to just fall short by one putt. Well done to the team of Niamh Reynolds, Cathie Whelan, Carmel O Brien, Mary Power and Bridget Ahearne. They were fantastic. Well done to all concerned. From players to caddies, managers and supporters, it’s an honour to represent your club and victory makes it a little sweeter. It’s not what your club can do for you, it’s what you can do for your club.
Domestically it’s hectic at the club. With Open week in full
swing and decent golfing weather the course is extremely active. Aside from our
usual fun comps, we had 565 competitive rounds played this week. Open week
continues till next Sunday 7th July representing an ideal
opportunity to invite a friend to play. The course is in fine shape and
visitors are highly complementary of our facility. On that note, we remind
members to take care of our course. Please repair pitch marks, replace divots
and rake bunkers. Look after the course and it will look after you.
