Club Notes: 26th July 2015

Stephan O'Reilly and Kathleen Foran win Pitch and Putt Captain's Prizes

With the weather gods once again smiling down on us we had a fantastic turn out for this year's Captain's Prize played on Sunday July 19. The Captains Mary Maloney and Paddy O'Hanrahan would like to say a special thanks to all played and all who supported the event. The Ladies event resulted in a comfortable win for Kathleen Foran but the Gents was a real nail-biter with Stephen O' Reilly running out the winner by the narrowest margin. Congratulations from Mary and Paddy to the winners and better luck next time to the losers. Below is a list of the winners:

  • Ladies overall winner - Kathleen Foran
  • Runner-up - Shula McCarthy
  • Overall gross  - Kathleen Shanley
  • 0-11 grade - Anne Fitzgerald
  • 12- 18 grade- Bridget Walsh
  • Final 18 - Breda Howell.


  • Gents overall winner - Stephen O'Reilly
  • Runner- up - Jimmy Fitzgerald
  • Overall gross- Noel Joyce
  • Senior Net - John Fitzgerald
  • Inter Net- Mario Smith
  • Junior Net- Paul Sweeney
  • Final 18- Tom Morris.

A special word about Stephen O'Reilly, it is extremely difficult for a low handicap player like Stephen (-1)  to win a competition of this nature, that he did tells how well he played and is playing at the moment.

The presentation of prizes followed that evening where we had an excellent crowd in attendance to boo and cheer the winners as they saw fit. A very special word of thanks to Mary Maloney and her hard working ladies for the beautiful food provided during the day and at the presentation that night
