You would wonder if this has happened before in the club. In Last weekends open singles we had Vice Captain Ger Murray (17) win Cat 1 with a brilliant 39 pts beating this years incumbent Dairmuid Mc Carthy (6) in 2nd spot who returned 36 pts. Ger also had a big scoop in the two’s as he was the only competitor entered who returned a deuce. Well done Ger mines an Americano and a Scone, Cat 2 was won by John Greene (30) with 36 pts well done John 1st Cat win i think. 2nd spot was taken by Derek O Conor (29) with 35 pts good stuff Derek. Great to see Vivienne Levi (22) win the latest ladies comp works hard in the club house and on her game does our Viv. Next weekend see’s the club taking on our near neighbours Tulfarris in the Lakeside Challenge watch out for news of the team here during the week. Tom, Colin and volunteers also got the autumnal hollow core and tinning done earlier in the week and looking at the greens yesterday it looks like an excellent job with the greens knitting back nicely. Just to remind anyone looking in of our full membership deal which is €750 from now till beginning of March 23 again any pay and play members can also have their remaining membership time discounted off. This is very reasonable considering the cost of membership of other country clubs in this neck of the woods. Ring the clubhouse staff and they can take you through the process, good time to do it now folks as you would be eligible for the winter and spring leagues.
