The Summer Series Team Event continued last Wednesday and this proved to be a runaway success for a team from Rathsallagh Golf Club. In returning a whopping score of 101 points they had 10 shots to spare from their nearest rivals team of four from Bellewstown Golf Club. The Rathsallagh team had nines of 47 and 54 points respectively. With only two scores to count on all holes their score included four holes where they scored seven points. These were at the 7th, 10th , 17th and 18th holes and these scores helped in no small way to amass their impressive total and leave the remainder of the field trailing in their wake. The runners-up had nines of 45 and 46 points which also contained two seven points at the 13th and 14th holes.
Last Sunday saw a Member/Guest Scotch Mixed Foursomes played with a good turnout of players despite various other activities in London and Thurles. This competition proved to be a success for husband and wife pairings who filled the top three spots in the competition. The winners were Paul and Bernie Madigan and they just prevailed from John and Brenda O’ Sullivan by virtue of a better back nine holes. The winners had 42 points made up of two nines of 21 points each and they got through against the O’ Sullivans nines of 22 and 20 points. In third place came Alan and Alison Hoyne on 40 points.
Next weekend sees the popular Residential Trophy played for on Saturday with the Members Summer League resuming on Sunday. The August Ladies Invitation Day will be held on Wednesday 8th August and a Member/Guest Fourball to be held on Thursday 9th August.
