After the excitement of the Captain’s Drive In, it was back to the business end of things with week 4 of the Spring League, which is being kindly sponsored by Dave Kavanagh, DOE Test Centre, Tipperary, taking place with beautiful Spring conditions over the past week. Thirteen teams returned cards this round with team F of Eamonn Ryan, Hughie Walsh, Michael Greensmith and Jonathan Ryan returning a terrific score of 72pts followed by Team P of JJ Russell, Mike McGuire, Martin Gavin and Pat Hartnett with 71Pts and Team G of Mike Ryan (M), Denis Ryan Dennis Kennedy and PJ Carey with 70Pts. Results after Round 4 leaves Team A leading with 216pts followed by Team F and Q on 214pts, Teams J on 210pts, Team M on 205pts and Team G on 195pts. However there are still 2 more qualifying rounds to go, so it can all change very quickly. Further details on our Spring League are available on our website on www.ballykisteengolfclub.com. Round 5 of our Spring League to be completed by next Sunday 6th March with the final fixed for Sunday 20th March.
Our juniors were in action last week in a Fred Daly challenge against Nenagh Golf Club, drawing 3-3 Notable performances on the day were from, Eamon Quirke, who was cool, calm and collected in a great 2&1 win, the ever reliant Michael Culhane and 2011 Junior Captain Evan McGrath had great wins also. Special credit must go to young Aidan Cregan for a great exhibition of golf on his Ballykisteen debut, the ever improving Cathal Frawley and the solid Cathal McGrath were narrowly edged out and the impressive youngster Mark MacGrath performed well but was unlucky on the day. Thanks go to volunteers who provide transport (and support!!), especially Peter McGrath and Grant Sillet amongst others.
Thanks to everyone from Nenagh Golf Club also.
