Golf Notes 09-Jul 2018

The course was fast and furious this week but with the work & time put in by Eddie/Ciaran/Nathan the greens are still rolling beautifully and taking approach shots very well. Only those that could master the links-like conditions were going to score well. Pat Walsh [Boher] won our Tuesday Singles with 41 pts, one ahead of James O’Donoghue & Eddie Ryan [G]. In our Sat Singles Pat Ryan [SM] claimed the win with 40 pts, one ahead of Andrew Heffernan in second & Stephen O’Doherty from Newcastle West in 3rd. In the Crowley Cup Simon Earlie shot the best score of the week, probably the best this year so far. With just two bogeys & two birdies to balance the books he finished on level par (64 Gross) to beat Conor Carroll by 4 strokes with Mike O’Brien (Pallas) just one further back. Sean Long took the Best Gross with a 73.

Our Fred Daly Plate team had a fantastic away win in the 1st leg against West Waterford. The 2nd leg is provisionally booked for Monday 16th July. Well done to both Niall O’Shea and Paddy Kennedy who played in the Connacht Boys Championship in Loughrea. Special mention for Niall who shot an 80, beating his handicap by 4 strokes. While not a winning score, it resulted in a nice reduction on his handicap. Donncha Cleary and Ronan O’Connor both played well in the Munster U13 Boys in Adare on Friday. Donncha finished just outside the prizes on 40pts.

Our President’s Prize is just 2 weeks away, Jul 20-22. Please use BRS to book for the hour slot you would like to play. The draw will be made on Wed 18th. Please let Games know if you travel with other players, if we know we can try to keep your tee-times close together. Remember, no practice is allowed on the course Fri-Sun before you play your qualifying round.

Teams: The Diageo Mixed, manager Bernard Murphy, play at home against Nenagh on Thursday @ 17:15. The last men’s team still standing, the Barton Shield , manager Tim Walsh, take to the fairways in Clonmel next Saturday @ 9.50am. Good luck guys & gals.
