Last Sunday Turkey competition was cancelled due to the poor weather. The weekly nine hole was won by John McGuinn 22pts, 2nd Owen Garvin 21pts. Next Sunday will be the final Christmas Turkey competition. The weekly nine hole can be played Monday – Saturday.
The final round of the winter league is to be played this week, Wednesday to Sunday. The hot favourites are Liz Dwyer & Pat Conroy on 91pts although Charlie O’Donnell in 3rd place on 90pts gave a very confident interview at the weekend. The full interview is available on the website or on DVD. Charlie’s partner is Jimmy Dwyer. Liam Mullaney and Eamon Perry are second on 91pts and clearly in contention. Dark horses lurking just behind the top three are Mick Moran and Tom Kearney and “The two Jims” being Jim Mooney and Jim Callery. There is also a daily prize to play for.
Date for your diary is the Christmas Scramble on Friday December 27th, draw at 12.00 with shotgun start at 12.30.
