Pitch and Putt - Paul Sweeney wins the Hillview Memorial Cup

Hillview were delighted to host a major new competition on the annual calendar, the inaugural Hillview Memorial Trophy competition. Going forward this Trophy will be played for every year in memory of all deceased members. May they rest in peace.

Blessed with unseasonably good weather we had a brilliant turnout, which of course lead to a tight competition which was only decided on the final cards at the end of the two days. The proud winner of this inaugural competition was rising star Paul Sweeney.

The full results were as follows: Overall Nett Winner- Paul Sweeney

Ladies: Overall nett runner-up- Breda Howell, Overall Gross winner- Pauline Lucey; 0-11 nett winner- Kathleen Shanley, 12+ nett winner- Lorraine Creed

Gents: Overall nett runner-up- Pat Morris, Overall Gross winner- John Fitzgerald, Inter nett winner- Dave Cahill, Junior nett winner- John Cawley

The presentation of prizes followed later in the day in the presence of Club President Seamus O'Doherty and sponsor James Cleary one of our top players, who was the instigator of the competition. In their speeches both Seamus and James stressed the importance of this kind of event and for the memories they invoke in all.
