Thanks to the weather the course was only available for play for a very short period last week and consequently there was only one fourball brave enough to play in the Lemongrass Restaurant sponsored competition so the card from the fourball has been entered into this week’s competition.
However, they say it’s an ill wind that doesn’t blow some good and as a consequence of falling behind in the competition it has been decided to double the voucher prizes from this week until the culmination of the competition. Yes, you read correctly, there will be double the amount of weekly prizes, that’s first and second in the Magic 5 and first, second, third and fourth in the Magic 15 & 20 sections from this week on so hopefully the weather will improve.
The competition continues from Monday to Sunday each week until the first week in March.
Congratulations to Frank Smyth for his recent endeavours in Durban, South Africa. Frank qualified at Mount Juliet to play with the professionals in the recent Volvo Golf Champions Tournament in Durban and by all accounts he had a wonderful time, played very good golf and met most of the European Tour players.
Frank said that the weather was a bit better than here and that it was great to see “the run on the ball” off the tee, something that he hasn’t seen in Ireland for a long time.
The Lemongrass Fourball continues from Monday to Sunday each week until the Grand Finals on Fri / Sat & Sun, March 1st, 2nd & 3rd.
