Paul Sweeney wins President's Prize at Hillview

Hillview Sports Club had a great turnout of players for its President's prize in Pitch and Putt and a very sincere thanks to all who played and supported the event.

Thank you to President Seamus O'Doherty for his attendance during the day and at the prize giving later that day in the Clubhouse.

Once again the event was blessed with fine conditions after the early morning fog and mists had lifted.

The runaway overall and Gents winner was Paul Sweeney who shot a fine 13 under gross playing of a handicap -6.

While there were several other great scores, special mention must be made of Stephen O'Reilly who shot a brilliant 17 under gross including not one but two holes in one.

The Ladies was a much tighter affair with Ann Wall getting home by the minimum from Anne Fitgerald.
