Summer Series in association with Golf Andalucia – 4 Person Team Event
Wednesday, 15th July 2009
Last week saw the third competition of the popular Summer Series and this was sponsored Golf Andalucia, Spain and all prizes had a Spanish flavour to them.
The worthy winners on the day were all from Rathdowney Golf Club with their base camp situated in Ballyraggett. The team of Michael Dowling, Martin Devlin, John Gleeson and Alan Phelan had a very good score of 90 points to win by a clear five shots from their nearest challengers from Tipperary who in turn were just a shot ahead of a Wicklow based team.
The format was, as usual, two scores to count on the first 17 holes and three scores to count on the 18th but the winners had nines of 42 points and 48 points and never scored less than 4 points on any hole.
The runners-up would have closed the gap considerably but they faltered on the last four holes to leave the winners well clear.
The next competition in the series takes place Wednesday 12th August and this will be sponsored by clothing manufacturer Tommy Hilfiger. Once again it will be a “shotgun start” at 2pm and reservations can be made by phoning 056/7773064 or 7773071.
