GOLFER OF THE YEAR – Well done to Sean Heslin who has claimed the mens’ club’s “Golfer of the Year” title. Sean had been lurking just below the top of the table for several months but a fine win in last Sunday’s 18 hole Stableford saw him leapfrog his rivals into the top spot. I have been “reliably” informed that Sean attributes his win to the many kind words of encouragement he enjoys from his golfing partners every Sunday.
KING HARMON QUALIFIERS – Charlie O’Donnell and Gerry Carty are in pole position after the first of the 3 King Harmon Qualifiers, both having 39 points, Charlie winning this round on countback. The top 8 scorers ( aggregate of their 2 best cards) go through to the knockout stages of the King Harmon Cup, so Charlie and Gerry are off to a good start, as are gross prize winner Brendan Gaffney and 3rd placed Sean Heslin, both with 38 points. The remaining qualifying competitions take place over the next 2 Sundays.
FIXTURES – Our Winter 9 hole Stableford continues on a weekly basis throughout October, playable any day. If there is sufficient interest it will be continued throughout the winter either as a rolling weekly or monthly competition.
AGMs – The AGM of the mens’ club takes place on Sunday the 10th of November, with the ladies’ on the following Sunday (the 17th of November). The overall club AGM, the “management AGM” , will take place on Sunday the 1st of December. All the meetings take place in the clubhouse at 5pm on the relevant dates. Members are welcome to put motions forward for the AGMs, proposal slips are available below the main noticeboard in the front hall. Motions must be available for viewing on the noticeboard for at least up 14 days prior to the relevant AGM.
