The Ladies Intermediate Cup and Challenge Cup teams made their exits from the respective competitions last week and so there are only two teams left flying the flag over the next few weeks. The Duggan Cup team is in action this week against Castlecomer in the last competition for the men and the Miele Fourball team will be the only team left in the ladies competitions.
In the Challenge Cup the ladies were beaten by Rathsallagh at Carlow and it looked like the match could go all the way but the vital match was lost on the 18th. The Intermediate Cup team had to concede a walkover to their opponents as they unfortunately could not field a full team on the day.
The Summer Series for teams of four players for June took place last week as well and this resulted in a victory for a team from the Thurles area of Tipperary. The winners returned a fine score of 89 points and just edged out a team comprising of friends from Donegal, Tipperary and Wicklow on a countback over the last nine holes. The winners recorded nines of 41 and 48 points as against 45 and 44 points by the runners-up. The next competition in the series takes place on Wednesday 7th July for teams of four people, ladies or gents, with two scores to count on each hole and tee reservations can be made by phoning 056/7773071 or 7773064.
Next Saturday the Captains Prizes takes place and it appears that the weather will keep fine and sunny. There is a full timesheet with the first players commencing their round at 7.30am.
