PRESIDENTS PRIZE – TOM PHELAN

Our Presidents Prize, kindly presented by Tom Phelan was held over the weekend. The weekend started off with a very well attended scramble on Friday evening and it was wonderful to see so many members enjoying their golf.

On Saturday over 200 members played in mixed weather conditions with the final on Sunday also proving challenging with temperamental weather over the course of the day. Congratulations to Gerry Raher who won the Gents first prize and to Joanne Fitzgerald who won the Ladies first prize. It was a tough competition for all, congratulations to all our prize winners. 

The course was in pristine condition thanks to John, Anthony and his team. Our Restaurant was a hive of activity throughout the weekend. Thank you to Tom and all the bar staff for their hard work.  Thank you to our committee members and Pro Shop staff for ensuring the smooth running of the competition.

Congratulations to Tom Phelan on such a successful Presidents Prize. The large numbers playing over the weekend were a testament to a popular and loyal club member.
