Diageo Midland Mixed Foursomes
The first semi-final of the ‘Diageo Midland Mixed Foursomes’ was held at Roscrea Golf Club on Saturday August 13; Carlow v Cahir Park and what an exciting event this turned out to be. Two very good competitive teams fought long and hard in sizzling sunshine (yours truly John Maher did not envy them). The standard of golf played by both teams was very good.

I witnessed golf shots from drivers, woods and irons that professional golfers would be proud of and the putting was beautiful to watch. I have seen many golf competitions at different Clubs over the years I still think the ‘Diageo Midland Mixed Foursomes’ brings out the extra competitiveness in players. In the end Carlow emerged as the winners; what a competition between two very sporting Golf Clubs. As usual I had the pleasure of speaking to people from both Golf Clubs.

Carlow Club President, Carmel Roche and Carlow ladies’ Captain Caitriona Farrell, two lovely ladies to talk to. I also spoke to Cahir Park team manager Leam Casey, a gentleman to chat to. The players from both Clubs are good ambassadors for their Clubs. Roscrea Golf Club as usual is in pristine condition.

Many thanks to our greenkeeper John Quinlan and his team to have the Course so well presented in this very hot weather, also thanks to Lauren Egan in the bar for all her work in keeping the golfers in a good supply of water for their game of golf, and team managers who needed a golf buggy were also looked after by Lauren (team work very important).

Next semi-final is on Friday August 19; Dundrum v Thurles. I have no doubt this will be another cracker. Hope to see your Club in the Diageo Mixed next year.
Yours in Golf, John Maher
