Last weekend we held our annual Club Classic and as expected it turned out to be a very successful and enjoyable event with 20 teams taking part in a Scramble format over 13 holes. The sunny start on Sunday morning quickly turned to hail showers and while underfoot conditions were soft the scoring was very competitive.

1st place went to Pat Ryan, Simon Touhy and James Keane, 2nd place went to Pat Irwin, Dave Frawley and Larry Kelly and 3rd place went to Jamie O’Donoghue, Mike McGuire, Mike Quirke and Sean Kiely.

A large crowd gathered in the BallyK bar after the Munster game for presentation of outstanding prizes along with Ladies club presentations. Presentations were made for Sept and Oct Medals, Single and Fourball Matchplays and all the Hampers. Final presentation was for Junior and Senior Golfer of the Year competitions which went to Gavin Downey and Joe O’Dwyer.

Result of the Christmas raffle organised by Marion in the Pro shop: 1st Dave Frawley - Freeway Powakaddy, 2nd Gerry Boland - RBZ Taylormade Driver, 3rd Joe O Dwyer - GolfBuddy Voice, 4th Mike Keegan - Z star Srixion Balls.

Elsewhere our Captain Chris Ahern would like to wish all members a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and enjoyable golfing in the year ahead
