VOUCHER – Congratulations to Paul Brown who was the winner of this year’s Voucher competition,and is now the lucky recipient of a years free membership. Close on his heels in 2nd place was David Gallagher with a 64, 3rd place went to Lochlainn Conboy.
WOMEN –The women’s’ Voucher competition was won by Mary O’Hara, 2nd was Moira Egan with the gross prize going to Liz Dwyer and Ruth Hogg came 3rd.
THURSDAY- The mens’ midweek 12 hole played on Thursday the 23rd was won by Lee McKillen, 2nd was Lochlainn Conboy with Sean Heslin taking the 3rd spot. The 2’s club pot was unclaimed and rolls over to next week.
FIXTURES – Next weekend’s competition is a fundraiser competition for the club itself and will take the format of a 3 person Shambles. For those unfamiliar with a Shambles competition, all 3 players on the team drive off, then decide which drive is best and all 3 players play their next shot from the location of the best drive, each playing out the hole using their own ball.
CAPTAINS PRIZE – The big event of the year for the men, the Captains Prize is fast approaching. Lorcan Egan is this year’s mens’ Captain and his day will be on Sunday the 16th of August. For the mens’ prize, it is essential to have played just one 18 hole qualifying competition this year, a reduction from the traditional 3 given the shortened golfing season. There is still opportunity to get a card in if you haven’t already done so.
CYCLE FOR SANDRA – The club wishes the best of luck all those participating in the “Cycle for Sandra” event next Sunday August 2nd to Croagh Patrick. This cycle acts as both a fundraiser for North West Hospice and as a fitting tribute to the late and much missed Sandra McCrann, a former Lady Captain and very popular member of our club. Donation cards are available locally or you can donate online via the ‘Cycle for Sandra McCrann’ event on the North West Hospice page on Facebook
