All Ireland Fourball, 1st rd bye then v the winners of Royal Curragh and Tulfarris, to be played on or before April 23rd.

Barton Cup, home draw v Citywest on or before April 2nd.

Provincial towns away to Tulfarris, to be played on or before April 23rd.

Some really interesting stuff there. I think we will be strong in the Pierce Purcell, the Jimmy Bruen, Barton Cup and Junior cup this year.

Away again to our close neighbors Tulfarris, (AH HERE) in the Provincial Towns will be extremely challenging considering that no one could win an away match in the same fixture last year and then subsequently in the lakeside challenge which we had at home.Team selection/pairings in this will be a intriguing.

The Junior Cup at Lisheen a course where we have traditionally performed quite well plus the addition of some quality golfers into our ranks over the off season gives us every chance of repeating our success in this event in Castlewarden last year.

The Barton Cup v City West also offers real hope of progress, having the home draw of 3  matches from 5 is so important at this level, if we get through we face the winners of Tulfarris and Dublin Mountain.
