Sunday 10th January 2016
Single Stableford Competition Round 3- Winter League.
Kindly sponsored by Fitzpatricks Hyundai Garage Tullamore.
The slight improvement in the weather meant that the course was open and just about fit for play to re-commence the Winter League last Sunday, with only the 7th hole out of play. There was a healthy entry as the day offered many members their first opportunity to show off some of their new Christmas presents. Niall Smyth (12) must have received lessons as a present, as the Mount Lucas man produced a super 43pts for the 17 holes to record the first victory of 2016. Second place went to Stephen Comerford (18) with a good return of 40pts. Cat 1 went to Tullamore native Stephen Egan Snr (10) on 39pts. Former Westmeath player Larry Giles (12) took Cat 2 also with 39pts. Marathon golfer TJ Murray (17) took Cat 3 on 38pts but only after a tie break. There was modest scoring in Cat 4 with Noel Maguire (21) coming out top with 35pts. The Winter League continues next Sunday.
Next Friday night, 15th January, the Captain`s Dinner will take place in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore. Captain John McCormack & Lady Captain Geraldine Heavey are looking forward to welcoming members and friends for what promises to be a very good night. Music will be provided by the excellent Remix and a few tickets are still available from the clubhouse.
