PRESIDENTS PRIZE WEEKEND
This week’s activities focus on our much loved President
John Moran who presents his prize to the members next weekend. First up is our
President’s Scramble on Wednesday evening which will attract a huge crowed as
always. Please note the Scramble timesheet closes at 4pm on Wednesday and late
entries will join a waiting list. Entry Fee: Adults €10 and Juniors € includes
prizes and plated meal at the bar.
The proper action commences on Friday at 11am and we remind
members that the course is closed prior to allow our greenkeepers to prepare
and setup the course. We are looking forward to a great weekend of golf
befitting our President and we wish every competitor the very best of luck.
MIXED FOURSOMES TEAM
Our Mixed Foursomes team were in action last Saturday at
Castletroy in the Munster semi-final but unfortunately, we came up short
against a strong Fota team who went on to become Munster champions. Managed by
Joanne Fitzgerald, our team of Alan Thomas, Miriam Matthews, John Reynolds,
Rachel Kiely, Eoin Brackett, Mary Power, Damien Burns, Lorraine Troy, Donal
Williams, Linda Buckley, Kevin Walsh & Majella Moynihan did brilliantly to
reach this stage and can be justifiably proud of their efforts. Well done to
FRED DALY TEAM
Our attention now switches to the Barton Shield and Fred
Daly as we have two more Munster finals beckoning. Our Fred Daly team managed by Gerry Raher
face Muskerry at Clonmel on Monday 19th August. We face a difficult
task to retain our title won so brilliantly last year but hopefully our team of
Daniel Raher, Michael Troy, Ethan Raher, Sean O’Sullivan and Barry Morrissey
are up to the task.
The following Saturday 24th August our Barton
Shield team led by Mick Leacy and David Raher are in action at Tramore facing
Tralee. The team of Alan Thomas, Danny Raher, Gavin Smyth, Peter Mullaney, John
Reynolds and Jake O’Riordan will do their utmost to bring home another Munster
title. Support at each venue will be greatly appreciated.
The Summer season remains very busy at the club with
visitors highly complimentary of our facility. Staff are welcoming, food is
great and the ProShop is an Alladin’s cave are some of the recent comments.
This week we welcome the Victor O’Connor group from Youghal, the ILGU for our
Girls 4 Golf 4 Life festival, and the Comeragh Golf Society.
