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 all concerned.

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.

BARTON SHIELD

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.

BUSY SEASON!!

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.
