CLUB NOTES 25/9/2016

Our sincere thanks to everyone who braved the rain over the weekend to play in the ‘3 Person Waltz’, kindly sponsored by Behan’s Country Market. Your support is much appreciated and I hope you enjoyed the novelty of the format. Well done to all our recent prizewinners. The course held up very well under the circumstances and that’s a real credit to our course staff and volunteers.  


25/9/16 Behan’s Country Market – 3 person waltz.

1st Padraig Shine, Tony Shine, Tommy Campbell (88pts).

2nd Brendan Magee, Peter Scally, Willie Colgan (87pts).

Pat Doyle rolls in for a par on 17th -  

Ger Coughlan presents Ger Coughlan with a Thursday Open prize!

22/9/16 Thursday Open (Stableford)

1st Frank Kiernan (15) 38pts, 2nd Shane Nugent (19) 36pts, Seniors – Phil Behan (12) 36pts.

It would appear that not all our Seniors are ticking the Seniors box on the card so if you qualify for that category please remember to tick accordingly. It is also essential that we all enter our scores on the computer as this reduces the amount of additional manual labour we have to ask our Competition Secretary and his overburdened helpers to do.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – Next weekend we have a club 18 hole stableford competition sponsored by Moate Medical. The popular Thursday Open stableford competition for Ladies & Gents just has a few weeks left so we’d love to see you here on the 29th.  

GOLFER OF THE YEAR – With just 4 competitions and matchplay’s left to count Jamal Sabir has a commanding lead on 385pts; Tommy Digan is 2nd on 301pts while Eamon Coughlan & Liam Galvin are tied in 3rd on 260pts. Next it’s Brendan Kehoe in 5th with 247pts. Just picking a couple at ‘random’ further down I see Men’s President Seamus Buckley on 32pts in 130th, Men’s Captain Martin Horan in 103rd on 44pts & Treasurer Sean Dunne on 99pts in 53rd place, just one behind myself with 103pts. If I put my mind to it a top 50 finish is still a possibility!!

MUNSTER SENIORS – Well done to club legend Bert Burke on his 4th place finish last week in the Munster Veterans Championship held at Thurles GC. The winner was Tomas Persson from Sweden playing off scratch.

CLUB NOTES 18/9/2016

The weather wasn’t too kind to us today for the popular Mick Glennon Memorial with Saturday’s starters having the better of the conditions by far. Summer is over apparently and conditions were a little on the soft side underfoot. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the results for this competition will not be available until tomorrow.

Following the recent glut of strokeplay competitions a decision was taken to have this as a stableford outing and we hope that this didn’t take from anyone’s enjoyment. We even had the novelty of players actually wanting it to be a strokeplay competition!


16/9/16 Club Comp sponsored by Grand Hotel Moate (Stableford re-entry)

1st Overall – Paddy Lynam (8) 39pts, 1st Cat 1 Eamon Coughlan (5) 37pts, 1st Cat 2 Ray Donoghue (13) 36pts, 1st Cat 3 Martin Horan (15), 1st Cat 4 Gerry Jordan (19) 37pts.

15/9/16 Thursday Open (Stableford)

1st Eamon Connolly (12) 39pts, 2nd Barry Cuffe (8) 39pts, Gross – Paul Coughlan (+2) 37pts, 3rd Bert Burke (4) 38pts.

It would appear that not all our Seniors are ticking the Seniors box on the card so if you qualify for that category please remember to tick accordingly.

It is also essential that we all enter our scores on the computer as this reduces the amount of additional manual labour we have to ask our Competition Secretary and his overburdened helpers to do.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – Next weekend we have a team event thanks to regular sponsors Behan’s Country Market. It’s a ‘3 Person Waltz’ and for anyone unfamiliar with the format it’s 1 player to score on the 1st, 2 players to score on the 2nd, all 3 on the 3rd then back to 1 on the 4th, 2 on the 5th and all 3 on the 6th  and so on to the 18th. So that’s a 1,2,3 and a 1,2,3 - hence the ‘waltz’ in the title!

The Thursday Open stableford competition for Ladies & Gents still has a few weeks left so catch your midweek competition fix on Thursday 22nd.

As you may know a tree fell on the 9th last week but it's pretty well cleaned up now after we got these young lads in to help us!


But that Creggy fella is such a messer......

GOLFER OF THE YEAR – After the Presidents Prize points were allocated the top 5 is Jamal Sabir 364pts, Tommy Digan 274pts, Liam Galvin, 260pts, John Smyth 244pts and Jamie Colgan 237pts. Remember next week’s Waltz is not a counting competition as it’s a team event.  

INTERMEDIATE ALLIANCE – Ciaran Malone was in touch and informed me that the Midlands Intermediate Alliance for 2016/17 will commence in Glasson on October 9th followed by Longford on October 23rd and ourselves here in Moate on November 13th. No doubt there will be a full fixture list in the various changing rooms throughout the Midlands shortly.

CLUB NOTES 11/9/16

Best wishes go to Seamus Buckley and Carmel Carroll on their very successful Presidents Day on Sunday. Around 90 golfers between the two competitions took to the blustery fairways from 12.00 sharp and made their way round with great enthusiasm showing great support for our Presidents. At an equally successful Dinner / Presentation afterwards both Captains Martin Horan & Geraldine Coughlan congratulated Seamus & Carmel on a fantastic days golfing and thanked them for their efforts and support throughout the year.

Seamus then spoke with great passion about his pride at being President for 2016 and despite what he said it is very unlikely to be his last hurrah! Seamus went on to praise the course staff, the volunteers and everyone else on the committees that keep the club running and those had worked hard on his behalf to assist him in having a great day. There was a special mention for Padraig Keenan & Andy Dunne who proved no more than adequate stand in's for Jimmy Kassaris and both will be relieved when he’s back in charge of the numbers. There is no truth in the rumour that Padraig was spotted eyeing up a pale blue Miami Vice style suit and floral shirt!

Carmel reiterated many of these points in her speech while also congratulating all the prizewinners and there was a special thank you to Pauric & his staff who as always provided a wonderful meal. Veronica Colgan was a very popular winner of the Lady Presidents prize and Mags Galvin was runner up. Full results will follow.


11/9/16 Seamus Buckley’s Presidents Prize (Strokeplay)

1st Jimmy Bradley (7) 143 nett, 2nd Barry Cuffe (9) 144 nett, Gross – Paul Coughlan (+2) 145 nett, 3rd Declan Murphy (13) 146 nett, 4th Liam Galvin (5) 147 nett, 5th Tommy Digan (6) 148 nett. 1st Day 18 holes – Paddy Coyne (14) 70 nett, 2nd Day 18 holes – Brendan Kehoe (6) 73 nett. Past President – Michael O’Brien (16), Veterans Prize – Kieran Heavin (7) 149 nett, Junior – David Fleming (5) 154 nett.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – Next weekend we have the Mick Glennon Memorial, a club competition for Ladies & Gents.

The club competition sponsored by Grand Hotel Moate has been extended to next Friday and is now a re-entry. I wonder will any other father & son combo manage to get 2’s on the 4th while playing in the same 3 ball? I’ve been lucky enough to get a few 2’s lately but congratulations go to junior member Callum Dunne who nabbed his first competitive 2 on the 4th on Saturday and by so doing diluted my share of the pot!

Mickey Rabbitte and Callum Dunne in action on the 11th tee during the Grand Hotel Moate comp on Saturday.

The Thursday Open stableford competition for Ladies & Gents continues on the 15th September.

GOTY – With only a handful of counting competitions left this year Jamal Sabir still holds a commanding lead on 320 pts. Jamie Colgan is next best on 237 pts and Tommy Digan is on 220 pts. I’ll provide a full update next week when the Presidents Prize points have been allocated.
