We actually got to play golf this week! What a pleasure to enjoy nine holes amid the drop of leaves adding to the exercise of Find the Golf Ball. Overall, there was joy in resuming competition and meeting friends.
Tuesday Seniors Day
The Seanoiri were out early Tuesday morning followed by the Ladies who played a nine holes Champagne Scramble.
Congratulations to winning team of Miriam Halley, Breda Wall and ‘new to golf’, Mary Hickey who returned 40pts. All the Ladies were delighted to welcome Mary to the Tuesday competition.
Ladies weekly Competitions
It is best to keep an eye on the noticeboard in Ladies locker room for updates on competition and/or the Ladies WhatsApp group.
Last weekend, the nine-hole competition resulted in a tight result with Breda Keating and Norma O’Brien, both playing off H/C 9 returning 18pts and Breda taking 1st place on countback.
