JB CARR TEAM
The JB Carr team journey for 2019 came up just short in
Tralee last Wednesday. The home team managed the windy conditions very well and
were 4-1 winners on the day which gave them a 6-4 aggregate victory.
We got off to a great start in Tralee with
Mossie Walsh and Pat Power again overpowering Mike Sheehy and Ger Power
(4&3). We struggled to build on that momentum. Overall it has been a very positive campaign. 48 clubs
teed it up in JB Carr 2019 and we made it to the last 4. That’s it until
2020. Another year older and wiser. Well done to all the team and their manager
GREAT WIN FOR SHANE LOWRY!!
We were all glued to our
televisions over the weekend and witnessed an Irish winner of the Open
Championship, being played on Irish soil for the first time since De Valera was
in his first year as Taoiseach. Congratulations to Shane Lowry on what
was a magnificent win!

It has been
exceptionally busy in the club this month. We had no 60.com competition on Wednesday 17th July
due to the South Munster Seniors having the course booked for the day. As it
turned out the day was wet so the amount of golf played was limited.
There will be no 60.com competition on 24th July
due to the Lady Captains Scramble taking place that day. We would encourage you
all to take part. On Wednesday 31st July we will have our
second 60.com outing to Callan Golf Club.
Booking sheet will be available in the locker rooms. We have booked for
24 so it first come first served.
Come along any
Wednesday for our fun event (when we are playing) and join us for social golf,
coffee and chat.

Shane Lowry “shot the lights out” on Sunday to make
every Irish golfer and supporter proud of him and his sport. No one watched the
lotto draw as they were glued to the TV enjoying his walk to glory.
The numbers drawn in our weekly Lotto on 21st July
were 1, 2, 7 and 17. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to
€4,900 next week. We had two Match 3 winners this week – Esme
Dowdall and Billy Queally – they each win €50 – congratulations to both of
The projects funded by the Lotto are making great
progress. Hopefully the drainage will be completed during early next week and
we can all get back to 18 hole golf. Again, thanks to all of you for the
support and understanding you are showing for the disruption caused by the
projects. You support for the Lotto has made these possible. Your continued
support will enable further improvements.
The draw next week will take place on Sunday
afternoon about 4:30pm. Come along and support us – all are welcome.
