Sheila Norris Singles Matchplay/ Ladies Foursomes Matchplay
The finals of both singles and foursomes were completed last week, the foursomes being won by Aisling and Mairead Manning while Esther and Julie secured the runner-up position. The singles final between DD and Bernie proved that age is no barrier when it comes to matchplay when DD came out triumphant, what a woman!! Well Done ladies.
Mixed Foursomes Matchplay
The final of this match proved to be triumphant for John and Patricia with Kiki and Elaine in runner-up position, I anticipate there was some great golf played in this match as John went on to secure the Golfer of the Year title for 2019. Well done John and to all our matchplay participants this year and here’s to 2020.
Golfer of the Year
Our Golfer of the Year 2019 was Ger Hallinan who overcame some very strong opposition to secure the coveted trophy, Ger has been playing some very steady golf all year and deserves this honour. Well done Ger!!!
