Club Notes: 2nd August 2015

Ann Wall and Stephen O'Reilly win the Credit Union Match Play Finals

Clonmel & Fethard Credit Union Matchplay: The finals of this event were played on Saturday July 25. The Ladies final resulted in an easy win for Ann Wall against a strangely out of form Kathleen Foran. But if the Ladies competition lacked excitement, the Gents more than made up for it with the result in doubt to the last of the 36 holes. The winner on the night was the very much in form Stephen O'Reilly from one of the up and coming players in the Club, David Cahill.

The full results were as follows:

Ladies Winner - Ann Wall; Runner-up - Kathleen Foran; Semi- Finalists - Anne Fitzgerald and Kathleen Shanley

Gents Winner - Stephen O'Reilly, Runner-up- David Cahill; Semi Finalists- Mario Smith and Tom Morris.

The presentation of prizes was made in the presence of Hillview President Seamus O' Doherty and Andrew Burke from the Credit Union. In thanking the Credit Union for their support, the long association between Hillview and the Credit Union was noted by Seamus and by Andrew in his reply.

Despite the vagaries of the Irish Summer the Pitch & Putt season continues without a break in Hillview. Below are the details of two recently held events which drew excellent support and provided exciting competition.

Magner & Crowley Cups: These long time played for Cups for Ladies and Gents and played for in a 36 hole strokeplay format resulted as follows:

Ladies: Nett winner - Nora Whelan; Nett runner-up - Ann Wall; Gross winner- Pauline Lucey
