INTER CLUB COMPETITIONS
Last weekend our Purcell team travelled the long distance to Thurles to take on the home club. We were represented on the day by the following players John Callinan/ Tom Maguire Nicky Hayes/ Adam O Riordan, JJ Quinn/ James Darcy, Nicky Dee/Brian Dunbar, Tony Fitzgerald/Barry Doyle/ Subs Micheal Wall / Robert Walton
Unfortunately, on the day things didn’t go to plan and we lost 3/2 but huge well done to Captains Michael Kavanagh and Alan Darcy for all their hard work in overseeing the practice rounds and the players and panel for taking part. You did yourselves and the Goldcoast Golf Club proud.
Our mixed team from the Gold Coast travelled to Williamstown yesterday to take on the home club in beautiful afternoon sunshine, teeing off at 2pm. Some of the matches turned out to be close but in the end the Gold Coast team held fast to take the spoils. A great victory for the Captains John Hallinan and Aisling Fennell and their players and panel. We wish this group all the best in the next round, it was great to see so many turn out to support the team from the club.
FRED PERRY Trails taking place this evening at 6 30pm
