Club Notes 31/7/2022

We are all about getting as many golfers playing as possible and it’s fantastic that those who may not otherwise be able to play golf can do so by using a buggy. However, we wish to remind members that you cannot play in a competition using a buggy unless they have previously provided the club with a medical certificate / letter. 

RESULTS – Shane Maher t/a Peter Gillivans Butchers (Stableford) 31/7/2022.  1st Overall – Eamon Grennan (30) 43pts, 1st Cat 1 – Shane Kelly (7) 41pts, 1st Cat 2 – Paul Jacob (10) 41pts, 1st Cat 3 – Paddy O’Brien (15) 39pts, 1st Cat 4 – Ron Beattie (29) 39pts, 1st Ladies – Mary Horan (26) 42pts.  

Club 13 hole weekly (Stableford) 31/7/2022 – 1st Brian Rosney (24) 36pts.

Nick Linnane captured on the 3rd and Neil Hiney after chipping in on 17 playing in the Nick Linnane & Co. Thursday Open

Nick Linnane & Co. Thursday Open (Stableford) 28/7/22 - 1st Richie O’Brien (18) 45pts, 2nd Sean Egan (16) 43pts, Gross: Ollie Grogan (2) 39pts, 3rd Jimmy Dolan (17) 41pts, Ladies 1st – Mary Horan (26) 42pts. 

FUTURE COMPETITIONS - Next weekend we have the Mick Glennon Memorial. The Nick Linnane & Co. sponsored Thursday Open continues on August 4th and our weekly running 13 hole competition can be played any day. 

SHAY MURTAGH PRECAST CLUB MATCHPLAY & KEENAN BAUER SCOTCH FOURSOMES 2022 – I sent a few texts during the week on these so hopefully we’ll be all caught up the next time I inspect the list sometime this week. I’ll do a proper update then on who is left in the running.

COURSE CORNER – To help the course staff keep the course in excellent condition we must all continue to do our bit by taking a sand bag with us and filling every divot we can. It is also vital that we repair every pitch mark and rake the bunkers too.

GOLFER OF THE YEAR 2022 – After the Shane Maher competition this weekend the table has changed again and Dom Fitzpatrick vaults into the lead on 284pts with Micheal Kelly on 264.5pts just half a point ahead of Steve Scullion in 3rd. We have now had 186 members record GOTY points and the latest to join that group is Paul Browne with 6pts.

PRIZE PRESENTATION – The Mens Club will hold a prize presentation for outstanding prizes in late August. Due to it being peak holiday season a number of key members and sponsors were unavailable to attend when this coming week was proposed. The weekly 13 hole prize vouchers will be left in the shop for collection later in the week.

ANDY’S ARCHIVE – This week we have a report of Padraig Keenan’s Captains prize Final from the Westmeath Examiner dated 2/8/2008. “The final of the Captains (Padraig Keenan) Prize was played out in bright sunshine last Sunday. With the course in superb condition, scoring was expected to be hot also, but none of the 90 finalists were able to carve out a decisive advantage in the mornings 18-hole event. However, leading qualifier, Gerry Somers, did enough to be joined in the final grouping for the evening play-off by Damien Milton and Martin Heavin. This proved an intriguing battle, which came down to the last green. Gerry held his nerve to emerge the winner by one shot from Damien and claim the title for 2008. At the presentation Padraig congratulated all the winners and thanked the team of people who helped make the day a success. Full results: 1st Gerry Somers (17) 168.5, 2nd Damien Milton (15) 169.5, 3rd Martin Heavin (20) 172, 4th Ger Jackson (12) 173, 5th Sean Connell (16) 174, Gross – Michael Power (2) 183, Leading Qualifier 18 holes - John Buckley (11) 66, Leading Qualifier 36 holes - Paul Tooher (14) 137, Past Captain – Liam Galvin (5) 174.5, Veterans – Paddy Carroll (15) 176.5”

FRED DALY LEINSTER CENTRAL FINAL 2022 – We were delighted to be invited by Golf Ireland to host the area final for the Fred Daly this year. Naas and Baltinglass were the clubs involved on Sunday and while I was unable to attend it I had the pleasure of meeting the Baltinglass Club Captain Michael Walsh on the premises of one of our local sponsors – SuperValu in Moate – before the match. He knew Glenealy was a Wicklow hurling stronghold so he’s obviously a GAA fan too. Unfortunately on this occasion the Wicklow lads lost out to their Kildare neighbours. We hope you all enjoyed the course despite the dodgy weather.   

SHAY MURTAGH PRECAST CLUB MATCHPLAY & KEENAN BAUER SCOTCH FOURSOMES 2022 – The Scotch Foursomes seems to be progressing nicely but it looks like there are a couple of games lagging behind in the singles. Please get them played ASAP and update the sheet in the locker room afterwards.

COURSE CORNER – During the week there was some activity on the pipework in the pond by the 15th green. At some stage in the future we intend to have the ponds operating properly. There was also some work done on the soft spot left of the 14th fairway, the drain on the 16th and down in the out of bounds area to the right of the 1st fairway. To help the course staff keep the course in excellent condition we must all continue to do our bit by taking a sand bag with us and filling every divot we can. It is also vital that we repair every pitch mark and rake the bunkers too.

GOLFER OF THE YEAR 2022 – After the Peter Kassaris Cup our new leader is Steve Scullion on 264pts and Denis O’Donoghue is next on 259.5pts. Joe Digan 250pts, Dom Fitzpatrick 248pts & Micheal Kelly 237.5pts all failed to register points in this one but they complete the top 5. In our fourball battle John Smyth is the runaway leader on 158pts although Ger Coughlan 84pts made up some ground today. Pat Doyle has 70pts while I languish last with 37pts. Although grabbing a point today might be a corner turned! If only the Thursday Opens counted……

PRIZE PRESENTATION – The Mens Club will hold a prize presentation for outstanding prizes in late August. Due to it being peak holiday season a number of key members and sponsors were unavailable to attend when this coming week was proposed. The weekly 13 hole prize vouchers will be left in the shop for collection later in the week.

ANDY’S ARCHIVE – This week we have an item that doesn’t directly involve Moate. It features Jimmy Bruen, one of the legends of Irish golf and of course we compete every year in the Golf Ireland competition named in his honour. I found this in The Daily Herald of 29/8/1935.

“Being in the mood when I could quite easily feel sorrow for anybody I could sympathize with little Jimmy Bruen the 15 year old Irish boy golfer, whose ambition had soared towards winning the Boys Golf Championship. Jimmy travelled from Cork via Rosslare, Fishguard and London to Aberdeen a week ago in order to get plenty of practice over the course. But disaster overtook Jimmy in his first match. He was beaten on the last green by G.M. Roughead (Falkirk Tryst). The Irish boys putting was all at sea. Several times he had three bites at a hole and must have won had this phase of his game been up to standard. Jimmy’s Irish tears dampened that last green when his rival sank the all-important putt. Such a long trip for so short a spell in the championship. Never mind Jimmy, there’s always next year.”

FUTURE COMPETITIONS - Next weekend we have the Peter Kassaris Cup sponsored by Jimmy Kassaris and family. The Nick Linnane & Co. sponsored Thursday Open continues on the 21st July and as always the weekly running 13 hole competition can be played any day. 

SHAY MURTAGH PRECAST CLUB MATCHPLAY & KEENAN BAUER SCOTCH FOURSOMES 2022 – I’ll be looking during the week to see where we are with these so if you have a match outstanding in either, now would be a good time to get it fixed.   

FANTASY BRITISH OPEN – We wish to thank everyone who participated in our exciting British Open Fantasy golf competition and for those who didn’t we hope you realise the fun (and cash) you missed out on. The lucky winners (subject to a final check on tickets) I’m delighted to say are regular supporters of everything we do. 1st Tony Buckley -73 (€500), 2nd John Naughton -72 (€250) and 3rd Callum Dunne -71 (€100). The winning line up consisted of Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson, Tyrrell Hatton, Bryson DeChambeau, Tommy Fleetwood & Cameron Tringale. We also wish to acknowledge the massive contribution of Padraig Keenan who shuns the limelight in a true Wicklow man fashion but is always busy behind the scenes on your behalf.  

COURSE CORNER – The course really is in excellent condition at the moment and all credit must be given to the green keeping staff. To help them keep the course as fine as it is we must all continue to do our bit by taking a sand bag with us and filling every divot we can. It is also vital that we repair every pitch mark and rake the bunkers too.

GOLFER OF THE YEAR 2022 – Following the Andy Dunne & Family competition at the weekend our GOTY table is still headed by Joe Digan on 250pts with Dom Fitzpatrick closing the gap significantly to just 2pts. In 3rd we have Steve Scullion on 244pts while Micheal Kelly 237.5pts and George Garvey 229pts both lose ground but remain in the top 5. We have now had 180 members score GOTY points and this weeks highest new entry is Pat Byrne who has picked up 33pts.  

Dermot Horan teeing off at the 1st in the Pierce Purcell match v Portlaoise. 

TEAMS UPDATE – The last team standing for the men in 2022 was in the Pierce Purcell and we lost 3-2 to a Portlaoise team who rattled in birdies on the 18th and 19th in the deciding match in Moate. Danny O’Connor / Dermot Horan and Sean Egan / Andy Dunne picked up home wins and Mick Young / Jimmy Dolan were the unfortunate pair that got blitzed after playing so well throughout. Liam Lynam / Paddy Coyne & Noel Mulligan / David Delaney battled hard away in Portlaoise but as anyone who has played it knows it’s a very tough spot to pick up a win. The club thanks everyone who played today plus other squad members who either played or were available to play if required including Andrew Rafferty, Martin Horan, John Smyth, Vivian Lynam and Willie Colgan.   

The moment on the 18th when the Pierce Purcell match was turned on it's head as Portlaoise sank a dramatic birdie to go level. 

On a much more positive note, the ladies Revive Active All Ireland Fourball team managed by Anne Healy have reached the Leinster Central Final. This will take place in Bunclody on Sunday August 7th and their opponents will be either Castlecomer or Gowran Park.
