GET INTO GOLF WINTER/SUMMER LEAGUE

Because of COVID the time frame for this league had to be extended over the summer months. It has proven a great asset to our Get into Golf participants as it encourages them to play nine holes of golf regularly and thus improve their game. It was closely fought with two teams forging ahead towards the final count down. 

Winners: Roisin Briggs, Breid Scanlon and Phyllis Davis

Runners-up: Pat McCarthy, Pat Crowley, Mary Ryan and Mary Ashe

Well done to all the participants. A special thanks to Anne Hennebry and Marcella Mc Govern for setting up the League and for managing the whole process.
