Open Week results at Boyle Golf club
OPEN WEEK – Our first Open Week since 2019 concluded on Friday the 8th with a hugely successful Scramble, Barbeque, Presentation of Prizes and social evening with music by Adam Daly. Mens Captain Gabriel Lavin commented in his speech during the presentation of prizes about the great feeling of community around the club and how delighted he was in particular to see great support from the Ladies section for several of the competitions. Our Monday evening Ladies and Gents 9 hole competitions actually had more participants in the Ladies competition than in the Mens’.
A particular debt of gratitude is owed by the club to our very generous local sponsors without whose support Open Week would not be possible. A list of these is on display in the clubhouse and sponsors signs are also in prominent places around the course. Members are asked to return the favour of supporting any of those businesses who were kind enough to lend us their support.
The club is also grateful to our Open Week committee of Brendan Gaffney, Gabriel Lavin and our two Competition Secretaries, Mary O’Hara and Lorcan Egan who collectively put in a lot of time and work in recent weeks.
