KING HARMON CUP
Congratulations to Brendan Gaffney who is the winner of the 2017 King Harmon Cup , edging out Gerry O’Hara in the final this weekend.
Well done to all the volunteers who turned out for our “Divot Day” this Saturday who performed sterling work in repairing divot marks on all the fairways. Players may notice that the grass is slightly longer on the greens than usual, this is a deliberate decision by the course committee to protect the playing surfaces from scorching in the recent dry weather.
Next Sunday, the 17th of June sees a Fourball Betterball competition for the men with the ladies competing for the Warren Cup. On the following weekend the men play an 18 hole Stroke whilst the ladies play in the exotically titled “Australian Spoons” competition.
The club bade farewell this week to Jimmy Doyle. Jimmy was a past Captain, President and Treasurer of Boyle Golf Club and was held in high regard within the club. Jimmy was known for several things, including his love of a competitive fourball, spinning yarns, and most famously his ability to cut a dash in the tailoring department. He was greatly missed by his fellow golfers when he had to stop playing due to illness a few years ago. The club extends its sincere condolences to Pauline and family.
We also wish to offer our condolences to Michael, Bridie and all the McHale family on the recent passing of Deirdre McHale.
