Club Notes: 23rd Oct 2016

Pitch and Putt is still going strong

Sunday Scramble: Determined not to let the season finish so early we ran a scramble on Sunday and to nobody's surprise we had a great turnout helped by a pleasant afternoon. In keeping with the weather we had some cracking scoring, the winning teams were as follows 1st nett- Breda Howell, Paul Kinnane and Joe Hickey, 2nd nett- Kathleen Foran, Frances Mc Namara and David Cahil, Gross - Joan Donlon, Liam McNamara and John Fitzgerald ( an excellent 23 under)

Club Outing: it must be coming to the end of the season when the Annual Pitch & Putt outing takes place, which it did on Sat Oct 22 to Youghal. A stiff test at the best of times but with a strong south east wind blowing, the course was a bit of a brute on the day. Despite these conditions our group of 24 hardy souls played an 18 hole scramble in the morning and a further 27 hole scramble in the afternoon.

Winners in the morning session were: 1st nett-  Veronica Anglim, Frank Gubbins and Michael Kennedy, 2nd nett - Breda Howell, John Cawley and Pat Morris, Gross - Joan Donlon, Pauline Lucey and Stephen O' Reilly.

After a welcome cup of tea play resumed in the afternoon and the winners in this session were- 1st nett - Breda Howell, Pauline Lucey and David Cahill, 2nd nett-Kathleen Foran, Anne Fitzgerald and Tom Morris .

The group then retired to the Walter Raleigh Hotel where we had a beautiful meal followed by dancing and "Liquid refreshments" into the early hours. Thanks to all who made the day possible with special thanks to our friends in Youghal.

A final reminder that next Sunday Oct 30 we will be hosting the Paddy Power Scramble. Start time 1.30pm. Presentation immediately afterwards in the lounge.
