Two more competitions were completed last week with the running of the August Ladies Invitation Day and the Summer Series for August.
The format of the ladies competition was a four person team event and this proved to be a decisive victory for the team led by the Lady Captain, Sally Gleeson, who with her three other team members scored an impressive 84 points. With two scores to count at each hole the winners had a comfortable margin to spare over their nearest pursuers.
Three members had “Holes in One” over the past week as well. David Kelly holed out his nine iron on the 11th in the Residential Trophy competition and will receive a memento for his achievement. In a friendly fourball last week Karl O’Connor had an ace on the 3rd and later in the same match Bryan Phelan holed out on the 14th for his ace.
The penultimate round of the Summer Series took place last Thursday and this proved to be benefit for four members from our near neighbouring club, Callan, who scored a fine 96 points. They just pipped a team led by Ollie Hodges from Ballykisteen by a shot. The Callan men had nines of 47 and 49 points respectively against the runners-up score of 46 and 49 points. The final competition of the Summer Series takes place next month and this will be followed with the start of the Winter Series.
The Friday evening nine hole competition continues this Friday and with only two more Fridays left the leaderboard for the final prize is getting very tight indeed.
