Club Notes: 1st Oct 2017

Pitch and Putt Ely Centra Gross Competition

We again had an excellent turnout for this event sponsored for us by Ely Centra Stores in the Old Bridge. The ladies side of the competition provided a facile triumph once again for Pauline Lucey who romped home many shots ahead of her nearest rival Breda Howell with the nett prize going to Ann Wall. The Gents competition was a different story however with John Fitzgerald getting home by the narrowest of margins from Jason Cunningham who just pipped James Cleary on a countback.

It's a busy period for Club competitions with the McInerney & Millea Cups and next Sunday Oct 8th we have one of our major competitions the Presidents (Seamus O'Doherty) prize.

We also plan to run a competition Oct 21/ 22 in support of Evan Hickey and the Hickey family who have been long-time supporters; More details later.

A number of Hillview players qualified for the Munster Matchplay Finals which were held in Parteen and Bruff. John Fitzgerald in the Senior, Paul Sweeney in the Intermediate and the trio of Adrian Anglin, Seanie O'Connor and Con Lucey in the Junior. Also our ladies Pauline Lucey and Kathleen Shanley. Congratulations to Adrian Anglim who battled through to be runner up in the junior final and Pauline Lucey had a good run in the ladies, beaten on 37th hole in semi final.


The All Ireland Vets Tournament is normally held in Dublin, this year it was hosted by St Anne's, Waterford and it attracted a strong entry from Hillview and other Tipperary clubs. In the various age categories, all the lads played well and most won through the first match, but came up against seasoned opponents from Ulster and Lenster. It's great to participate at this level, so congratulations to Des Dillon, Martin Ormonde, Michael Prendergast, Eugene O'Mahoney and William Guiry, William won a final in men's doubles under 55. The next club competition is the Winter League, see noticeboard for entry details.
