The last team standing in the Inter Club competitions made its exit on Monday last. The Ladies Challenge Cup team tasted defeat at the hands of the ladies from Woodenbridge Golf Club in the semi-final stage which was played at the neutral venue of Baltinglass Golf Club.
Needless to say they went down fighting but Woodenbridge were the stronger team on the day and won on a scoreline of 3½ to 1½ matches. The team and panel consisted of Brenda O’Sullivan, Wendy Beirne, Ann Murphy, Joan Pierce, Mary Cotter, Ann Daly and Dorothy Kilroy. They were managed throughout the competition by Helen Comerford and the panel and manager deserve congratulations on a fine effort to progress so far in a very keenly fought tournament.
The most recent round of the Summer Series produced some excellent scoring by the winning team comprised of four members of Portlaoise Golf Club. They scored a total of 102 points and were 12 points clear of the runners-up who all hailed from Carlow Golf Club. The entry sheet was full on the day but no one could get near the winning score. The winners had nines of 49 points and 53 points respectively and hardly put a foot wrong on their way to a convincing victory.
Last Sunday saw a Member/Guest Scotch Mixed Foursomes down for decision and this proved to be a triumph for the mother and son pairing of Tim and Sally Gleeson. They just got home from Phelim O’Connor and Helen Scully on a countback with both pairings scoring 35 points each.
