Some great scoring on Sunday for the Monthly Medal. The course analysis showed the 15th hole to be the toughest and this was followed by the 12th, 10th and 2nd. The four easiest holes on the course were the 11th, 7th, 3rd and 6th. Derek Power went around in under par to score a nett 67.

The build-up to the President’s Prize starts on Saturday next when Mary O’Callaghan and Mick Cronin host their President’s Scramble. Still getting good comments about the course and particularly about the greens.
