Ladies Golf
On Friday night last April 1st we had a return to our Annual Table Quiz, one of our major fund raisers for the ladies club. Once again it was very well supported by you the members with 20 teams competing. Phil Ryan did a great job as MC for the night with Flan McGlinchey and Margaret Ryan making us wrack our brains with their questions.

It was a fun night with a prize for the best team name, which went to the Graves/Kinane family for “3 birdies & a Bald Eagle.

It was a closely fought quiz in the end. The wining team was made up of some former Captains and the Captain. Anne Grace, Caroline O’Dwyer, Teresa Canny and Lady Captain Niamh Chadwick. Second team was a family affair of Niamh Brown father John Brown and Kieran Slattery.

Thanks to all who contributed to the raffle, to the ladies committee and those who helped out on the night and to the Men’s committee who picked up the tab for the food. The ladies committee raised over €1,200 on the night and your generosity is greatly appreciated.

This week’s golf saw the first of our 18-hole competitions return. With placing on the fairway only and this was a non qualifying competition the winners were 1st Marie Graves (37.7) with 36 points, 2nd Frances Boyle (12.8) with 33 points & 3rd Judy Hayes (37.2) with 32 points.

Our Tuesday morning 9-hole golf is a very popular scramble and the winning team last week was made up of Phyllis Heffernan, Kay Crosse and Flan McGlinchey.

This week we will have our 18-hole qualifying competition on Sunday April 3rd & Wed 6th and a 9-hole qualifier on Tuesday April 5th. Our Thursday evening social golf returns with Tee times from 5 o clock.
A reminder that at the end of this month we will have the first of our Medal Competitions with the Josie Alley 18-hole on April 24th& 27th. Our first Mixed Scramble is returning on Thursday April 28.
