INTERCLUBS – Hard luck to the mens’ interclub teams who exited from the Connacht Seniors’ and All Ireland Fourball competitions this week. Next up on the interclub scene is Boyle versus Castle Dargan this coming Wednesday in the Irish Mixed Foursomes tournament.
UPCOMING COMPETITIONS – Next weekend is another busy one in the club, with the Courthouse Fundraiser being played on Saturday the 26th of May. The format has changed this year to an 18 hole Stableford, i.e it is being played as a singles event, not a team one. This competition aims to raise money for the ongoing works in the old courthouse in Boyle, which is being re-developed by a committee of local volunteers. It will serve as the permanent home for the “Boyle Model Railway”.
On Sunday the 27th the annual Bart Moran Trophy competition takes place, sponsored this year by Gerard Sheerin of Aidan Ray menswear, Patrick Street, Boyle. The club thanks Gerard for his support and asks all members to support our sponsors.
The following weekend sees the Boyle Motor Works Cup Mixed Foursomes’ competition take place, followed by the President’s Prize for the men on Sunday the 10th of June.
