Fred Perry Trophy

Congratulations to the Fred Perry team who host Mitchelstown next Saturday at 2.30pm in the Munster Quarter-final. 

J B Carr Tournament

Well done to the JB Carr team who took on Ballyneety Golf Club in the Munster Quarter-final. Trailing 3-2 from the home leg, the team took on a strong Ballyneety team on their own course last Tuesday. The sun shone on the home team who took an early 5-3 overall lead. Dungarvan got the next win to keep hope alive. The final match ended level so sudden death loomed. After four play-off holes the visitors prevailed to make it 5-5. After more play-off drama Dungarvan managed to pull off the upset and now progress to the Munster Semi-final where the Kerry champions await over another two leg tie. Best of luck to the players and management and congratulations on the success to date.

60.COM

The weather conditions played havoc with our 60.com on Wednesday 29th July. We had a full timesheet and everyone started their round – but torrential rain caused most of the golfers to retire to the clubhouse for coffee and not complete the round. A few brave souls did “soldier on” to the 9th green

The winners were:

1st           Sean English                                                   20pts

2nd         Jack Elstead                                                     14pts

We move to Tramore Golf Club for Wednesday 6th July for our third outing of this year – hopefully for good golf and fine weather!

If you wish to play in our society please book on the timesheet. New members are always welcome to join

FUN FRIDAY FOURSOMES

We had a lovely dry morning for our Fun Friday Foursomes which attracted a large number to this fun event. We were delighted to welcome Marion Bourke who joined us for the first time. Competition was keen resulting in a count back for third place.

Thanks to everyone who supported us last Friday. There will be no Fun Friday Foursomes over the next two weeks due to our Open Fortnight. So why not put a team together for the Three Person Scramble (Fri Jul 8) or the Three Person Rumble (Jul 15) to help support our club.

GALA EVENING FOR GET INTO GOLF 2022

The clubhouse was buzzing with enthusiasm as our new Get into Golf ladies and men gathered to hear about phase two of the Get into Golf programme. We are absolutely delighted with the response from both. We are indebted to David Hayes our PGA professional for giving the lessons and to the ladies and men from our club who gave so freely of their time to take them out on our course. The on-course scrambles will continue for ladies on Tuesday evenings and for men on Wednesday evenings. Going forward then we intend to run mixed scrambles on Sunday evenings to keep the enthusiasm going and to improve their golf.

Thanks to Tom Daly and staff in the bar for providing refreshments for the Gala evening and for being there every Tuesday and Wednesday evenings when our golfers come in off the course.

GET INTO GOLF 2021

These ladies are really making progress with many of them now playing in the Fun Friday Foursomes. Congratulations to Margaret Keane who was in second place last Friday. There is also a 9 hole qualifying competition on Tuesdays and those who have handicaps are eligible to play. Well done to Niki Tierney who won this competition last Tuesday with 19 pts. Nice golf Niki.

JUNIOR NEWS

Our Junior competitions continue each and every Wednesday for the duration of the summer. Congratulations to Niall McCarthy on winning last weeks tournament with a superb score of 43 pts. Thanks to esteemed club member Tom Conway for his generous sponsorship of the event. All events are open, so bring along a friend if they have an official handicap.

Our Junior Foursomes team were in action over the weekend facing a strong Tramore team. Our team or Rody Morrissey, Harry Breen, AJ Hayes and Mattie Mullaney put in a strong performance, but ultimately, we fell to Tramore in an absorbing contest. We wish Tramore the very best of luck in future rounds. Thanks to our players, supporters, coach, drivers and sponsors for their efforts which commenced last January.

Junior lessons continue next Saturday at 3pm. We had a great turnout last Saturday under the watchful eye of our club professional, David Hayes.
