We have no Fun Friday Foursomes this Friday but we will be back again on
Friday Sept 16. We have our Autumn Open this week which raises money for our club. So do your best to participate as often as possible.

GET INTO GOLF SCRAMBLE (Sun Sept 4)
The success of the Get into Golf programme is due to the fact that you join a golf club in a group and enjoy the social side at the same time. We in Dungarvan Golf Club realise this and run scrambles for our new golfers on a regular basis. Each scramble attracts a bigger group and great fun is had by all.
Results
First: – Pat Crowley, Joanne Lannen and Niamh Hickey 25
Second: – Pat Comiskey, Linda Bradfield and Muireann O’ Neill 26 1/4
Third: – Pat T. Fitzgerald, Catherine O’Hara, Aisling Cosgrave and Nano Fitzgerald
26 1/2
These scrambles are very competitive and are great fun. The excitement in the clubhouse later creates a great atmosphere as they all gather and discuss the golf while waiting for the results. We really appreciate the fact that Tom Daly and his staff in the bar remain open to accommodate our golfers.
Thanks to Brian Beatty (Vice Captain) and Paddy Kennedy (Captain) for running the scramble so efficiently last Sunday. We are back again in two weeks on Sunday Sept 18. The time sheet has opened so go online and book your place.

Get into Golf 2021 and 2022
At the moment we are making an all-out effort to mark cards for handicaps for our new golfers. On this note I would like to thank our lady members who have been so generous with their time to undertake this task. We need more help however. If you have a handicap and could mark one nine-hole card for a beginner, just give your name to any member of the Get into Golf committee. It would really make a difference.

YOUNGONES

Our Youngones enjoyed a great day last Wednesday with beautiful weather conditions. 1st Rachel Kiely (25) 21pts, 2nd Celia Power (24) 20pts, 3rd Frances Moynihan (31) 18pts. We have no Youngones next week as the South Munster Senior competition will be on.

60.COM

We had a full timesheet for our 60.com on Wednesday 31st August. The course was in excellent condition and the ball was “running a mile”!

 The winners were: 1st  Jack Elstead 22pts, 2nd Maurice Crotty 20pts, 3rd Maurice Cliffe 19pts  

We will have no 60.com competition on Wednesday 7th Sept as an Open Week competition takes place that day. We will have our usual competition on Wednesday 14th Sept. We will be going on our outing to Tipperary on Thursday 15th September. The booking sheet for Tipperary will be on the notice board from Friday 2nd Sept – first come first served!
