HURLERS GOLF SOCIETY JOHN MCGRATH MEMORIAL CUP
A large group took to the fairways as the Club hosted the Hurlers Golf Society last Friday. We had the presence of many familiar faces, former county players, all stars and great hurling legends. It was a very special day as they were competing for the inaugural John McGrath Memorial Cup in memory of their good friend and former Secretary of over 40 years John McGrath, who is sadly missed by all.
Following the golf and a lovely meal, the presentation took place in the Goldcoast Hotel attended by the players, club dignitaries, guests and members of the McGrath family.
Secretary of the Hurlers Society Donie Collins and President John Flaherty thanked the Goldcoast Resort for the wonderful day had by all. The worthy winner was Pat Creamer (10) with 44pts. Pat accepted the John McGrath Memorial Cup from Ann McGrath and in his acceptance speech said some kind words about the late John and how honoured he was to win. In second place was Eddie Keher (14) with 43pts, 3rd Dan McKenna (10) 41pts and 4th Seamus Dolan (19) 40. After the presentation ceremony the society members retired to the function room to hold their AGM.
A lovely day was had by all and we look forward to their return again next year.

NON-RETURN OF COMPLETED SCORECARDS
From 31st March 2022 an automated process will be put in place to apply an automatic penalty score if a score is pre-registered but not submitted. This rule applies to both General Play and official Competitions. The player is now totally responsible for submitting their score once it has been pre-registered. If they fail to do so without providing the committee with a valid reason, an automated penalty score will be applied. Mandatory Handicap on Scorecards. From 31st March 2022, Golf Ireland requires that the player’s Handicap Index is verified before playing and is the required handicap on a scorecard
