Wednesday’s ABP Open Singles saw a close result with Bill Lonergan claiming the GPS Watch scoring an impressive 41pts beating Ken Kendellen into 2nd on a countback. Gross went to Tony O’Sullivan with 33 gross points. 3rd place finisher was Shay Hughes with 37pts. Some excellent shooting. All 4 guaranteed a place in October’s Grand Final. Please Note – Due to the success of our ABP sponsored Open Singles we have now decided to have prizes for 2nd, 3rd and Gross starting from next Wednesday July 3rd.
The Weekend competition saw the high scoring continue with the dapper Eamon Williams screeching in with 45pts (level par round), exceptional scoring and well done Eamon. 2nd was PJ Phelan with 43pts – a winning score any other day. Gross was Brian Frazer with 34 Gross points. In third was Michael Burke with 42pts. Fantastic scoring lads – well done to you all.
Also at the weekend we had the latest AIG inter-club instalment where Ballykisteen hosted the AIG Junior Cup. Cahir Park were victorious by beating Clonmel (reigning Munster champs) on Saturday morning with Paul Touhy winning it for us on 18. This was followed by a convincing 5-0 win against Mitchelstown on Saturday evening in the Semi Final. Unfortunately on Sunday in the Final we lost by the narrowest of margins 3-2 to Tipperary Town GC. Well done to all involved for a tremendous effort.

Our Ladies Challenge Cup team of Pauline Mulcahy, Breda Hickey, Kathleen Alton, Rosemary Maher and Marie Reidy headed to Dungarvan on Sunday with their caddies and Managers Margaret Gill and Ann Mc Loughlin. East Cork were their opponents. Our team made a great commitment to this match but the words of Bonny Tyler’s “Turn around” describe the luck we missed out! That magic final turn of the ball eluded us. We wish East Cork luck in the Munster Final.
