RESULTS – 12 Hole Club Competition 18/2/2018
1st Cat 1 – Paddy Lynam (7) 26pts, 1st Cat 2 – Darren Rosney (13) 29-2 = 27pts, 1st Cat 3 – Gabriel Buckley (16) 29pts, 1st Cat 4 – Kevin Macken (25) 29pts.
SEERY’S CASH & CARRY WINTER LEAGUE – Qualifying round scores are flying in for the Seery’s Cash & Carry Winter League and a few men and women went the extra mile for their teams in playing twice and even three times over the weekend. The absolute last day for scores is Wednesday 21st. The tee allocation and 16th team draw will take place that night and will be published on the website as soon as possible afterwards.
There were almost 100 rounds played in the last week or so which is amazing and the current leading teams are Joe Creggy 504pts, Billy Browne 503pts while tied 3rd Paddy Lynam and Mike Hiney are on 491pts. It’s much more exciting and tense near the cut-off point with only 10pts separating Jimmy Kassaris / Tommy Campbell in joint 13th and Joe Healy / Jimmy Dolan tied 19th. Anything could happen over the closing days.
The date for the final is still Sunday February 25th with registration at 11.30 for a 12.00 start. Saturday 3rd March is on standby in the event of a weather related disaster. Any qualified team that requires a substitute please notify us and a replacement will be allocated by the Men’s Committee. The wildcard team and any subs required will only be picked from those with all rounds played.
MEMBERSHIP – The Club Treasurer is sending a gentle reminder that subscriptions for 2018 are due at the end of the month. To aid our continued smooth running of the club anyone that can pay before then is welcome to do so. It will help cut down on the queues outside the door on February 28th.
SPONSORS – We are very appreciative of the vital contribution our sponsors make and the next group we’d like to thank are – Tuesday Club, Hugh Campbell Solicitors, Vinny McCormack, Behan’s Country Market, Pepper Money, Jimmy Kassaris & family, Sean Dunne, McCarthy’s Centra Moate and An Garda Siochana. We thank you all for your generous support.
CASUAL GOLF MEMBERSHIP 2018 – We have a new category for ‘social golfers’. It only costs €300 and allows you to play golf any time the course is available. It may suit someone getting back to golf after a few years off or trying it out for the first time but don’t want the added pressure of competition. You do not get a GUI handicap and you do not participate in competitions.
CAPTAIN’S DRIVE IN – An early mention for the Captains Drive In which takes place on March 18th. The entry sheet for George Garvey & Loreto Boland’s drive in is now in the shop. Entry is €10 and this should be paid when submitting your name and handicap.
TABLE QUIZ – The Ladies Club are hosting a table quiz on Friday March 23rd in the Clubhouse. A table of 4 costs just €40 and we’d love to see you there. I’ve heard a few people are holding team try-outs so the competition is only going to be fierce. Stop the lights!
INTERMEDIATE ALLIANCE – The next outing is on Sunday 25th in New Forest with tee times from 10-12. Unfortunately this clashes with our Winter League Final but it said Saturday on the schedule here and it can’t be helped. For Alliance bookings contact Paddy Coyne on 085-2485177.
