There was a terrific turnout for the event on Sunday, July 10th, despite a number of counter attractions at home and abroad.
With a 36 hole stroke event with playoffs over a further 18 holes for the top 12 ladies and gents, this meant a long and tiring day for those competing at the top.

Tuesday Scrambles: The latest instalment went ahead on Tuesday July 12. We had a terrific turnout once again and some hot scoring. Overall Nett Winners were the team of Marie Savage, John Cooney and Stephen O'Reilly. In second place were the trio of Lorraine Creed, Adrian Anglim and Paul Sweeney. The gross prize went to the duo of Pauline Lucey and Michael Kennedy.
We ran two very successful "Open" scrambles at which it was great to see some old faces back on the course but many new ones as well which augurs well for the future. The next club competition for the Ely Centra Gross will go ahead on Sunday July 24.
