Club Notes: 17th July 2016

Pitch and Putt

Captains Prize

Congratulations to Ann Wall and Tom Morris in winning the Captains Prizes. There was a terrific turnout for the Captains Prize played on Sunday July 10th, this despite a number of counter attractions at home and abroad. A 36 hole stroke event with playoffs over a further 18 holes for the top 12 ladies and gents, this meant a long and tiring day for those competing at the top. Copious cups of tea, cakes, tarts etc supplied by the Ladies did go a long way to alleviate whatever tiredness people did feel. Results at the end of a long day were

Ladies: Overall Nett winner - Ann Wall, Overall Nett runner-up- Anne Fitzgerald, Overall Gross Ladies - Kathleen Shanley, 0-11 Nett- Pauline Lucey, 12-18 Nett - Breda Howell, Final 18 Nett- Lorraine Creed

Gents; Overall Nett winner- Tom Morris, Overall Nett runner-up- Paul McGee, Overall Gross- Michael Kennedy, Senior Nett- John Fitzgerald, Inter Nett- Jimmy Fitzgerald, Junior Nett - Jason Cunningham,

The gross prize went to the duo of Pauline Lucey and Michael Kennedy.

We ran two very successful " Open" scrambles ,at which it was great to see some old faces back on the course but many new ones as well which augurs well for the future.  The next "Open” scramble will weather permitting take place on Tuesday July 19 with a 7.00pm start, get there as early as you can to allow the admin. to be done and to get all out on course without delay.
