Golf Notes 12-Mar 2018

Before getting into any golf-talk our congratulations and thanks must first go to Billy O’Reilly. After over 3 years of trojan and voluntary work in the office, Billy has decided that now is the time to pass the task on to fresh hands. In this time he has become a true guru on everything from book-keeping to internet banking, his knowledge and commitment will be sorely missed. Thanks Billy, we all owe you a huge debt of gratitude, and now that you have the time possibly a couple of drinks at the bar. Happy Second Retirement.

There was no let-up in some fine scoring in our winter sweeps. Top scorer for the week was Patrick Dawson on Tuesday with a fab 38 pts. At the weekend each division was very close with Sean Jackson, Ger Ryan & PJ Raggett getting their nose in front on the finishing straight. The packs were led home by Pat Ryan (G), Gerry Boland and Frank Doran. Scoring was so close that I’m sure there are a few out there ruing some missed putts.

Next Tuesday is our final winter sweep before getting into some open singles over St. Patrick’s weekend. Our Fixture List is with Fitzpatrick Printers and we would hope to have it in the Clubhouse very soon. In the meantime please use .
