JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY SPONSORED WINTER LEAGUE
Our winter league final took place yesterday between Nire/Tourneena and an Rinn. Like the weather the competition between these two teams was hot with the final played in glorious sunshine. It was a tight game in the end and Nire/Tournenna were crowned winter league winners for 2023. Hard luck to an Rinn who were going for two in a row. Full report next week on presentation and winners.

HOLE IN ONE
Great excitement ensued during our Gold Coasters outing on Thursday when Margaret Mulhearne, better known as the Ledge scored a hole in one on the 8th. Her playing partners Bernie and Alice got so excited we thought there had been an accident! Bernie got onto social media so fast it reached the local branch of BOI within minutes and circulated half the county in no time!
The messages posted on our What’s App group showed how delighted her fellow members were at such an achievement and so well deserved. Congratulations and well done Mag and hope you have many more, there are plenty holes left to be mastered. You are not called the Ledge for nothing!!
We finally got back to playing our midweek 9 Hole competition with very surprising results on the day. We had a very healthy turnout on the day as members were looking forward to getting out and hitting a ball and the rain held off until we were all back having our usual coffee and chat. Details of our excitement of the day are posted above!!
The midweek golf has proved to be very advantageous in keeping the swing active and playing other competitions in conjunction with the competition of the day!! Many thanks to Anne for continuing to organise the event with presentation of the most wonderful prizes each week!!
Ladies, we have a new consignment of club crested polo shirts in a range of trendy colours and club crested gilets now in stock. Our broad range of club clothing in mix and match colours look very smart and make wonderful and useful gifts and are available from the kiosk!!
INTER CLUB TEAMS
The team members are resuming golf lessons again after a break due to the inclement conditions with the PRO which is proving to be a great success. Onwards and Upwards for our teams!! Any updates in relation to above will be posted on the WhatsApp group. If you have any used or unwanted golf balls that you wish to dispose of, please drop them into bucket in ladies locker room. These will be used for practice and lessons for our Inter Club teams, many thanks to those who have added to the bucket. Much appreciated!!
Practice is underway for the upcoming mixed teams with Aisling taking our ladies on board and putting them through their paces. A big thank you to Aisling for taking on this task, but rest assured our ladies will certainly benefit from her input!!
Our Handicap secretary and committee met to discuss the input from the ladies in accordance to their handicaps. A review will be on-going throughout the year in relation to above decision.
