The midweek attention is truly turning to the fight for a spot on Race to ABP top 50 leaderboard
with limited time left to snatch a spot for the Grand Final on Sunday 18th.
A close affair this week with all top billing scoring 39pts.
David Hilliard showed great form when claiming top spot in Category 1 with an impressive 39pts. Well done David. Category 2 was claimed by Kieran Davis with an excellent 39pts. Great shooting Kieran. And Category 3 victor was Hugo Gallagher with an equally impressive 39pts – super shooting lads.
The weekend hosted our Vice Captains Francis McCarthy’s Prize with all and sundry turning up for a chance to have a “Crack for Mac”. Of course the weather reared its ugly head and had a say in everyone’s round.
In a coincidental twist of golfing faith we saw the 39pt fever continuing on from the midweek charge and in doing so causing a huge headache for the score checkers.
Battling fiercely and coming top of the pile was Luke Stack with 39pts aided in the countback with his 5 pars on the back 9. Super shooting Luke and congrats.
Edged into second on that countback was James Flannery with 39pts. Well done Jimmy. Third on further countback was Shane Conlon with another great (yes you guessed it) 39pts.
Gross over the weekend went to Niall Morrison with a level par 71 gross – well done Niall – great score.
Next Weeks Fixtures:
– Monday 5th to Thursday 8th ABP Qualifier.

John and Breda Ryan Memorial Weekend
We had a great turn out on the weekend of the 26th and 27th of September for the John and Breda Ryan Memorial Weekend. John and Breda were members with forward thinking and great progression that the rewards of are still being felt by today’s members. John was Captain in 1999 and steered the ship into the new millennium with a great sense of purpose and belief – whilst Breda was a powerful force on the course representing the club at all levels and holding an impressive Ladies Course Record for years. Both John and Breda were hugely involved with the inception of the back 9 holes and also the new Clubhouse – so we have a lot to thank them for.
Topping the ladies leaderboard was Carrie Healy with 38 points. Just missing out on the top spot on a countback was Caroline Maher also with 38 points. Great shooting ladies. The gross went to Mary Lyons and Kathleen Alton took third spot with 37 points.
