Men's Interclub Match Report, Saturday April 27th.

Cunnigar Team v Tipperary Hills

Our Men's Interclub team got the 2013 Inter/Junior competition underway with a match v Tipperary Hills on Saturday, April 27th, at Tramore Pitch and Putt Club. The Tramore course was, as usual, a very significant challenge with it’s customary lightning fast greens. As this was the Cunnigar club’s first experience of this format, the game was approached with a certain amount of trepidation. In the end, the Tipperary Club took the honours with a 6 games to 3 victory. The experience of this match will, undoubtedly, benefit our team for their next encounter in this Competition. Our next game is a tough encounter against Pfizer Pitch and Putt Club, Cork. This game will take place at the Claycastle course in Youghal in May. The exact date has yet to be finalised.

Very enjoyable day-trip to Lakewood


A very enjoyable day trip to Lakewood Pitch and Putt Club, Cork, took place last Saturday, April 6th. Twenty one club members headed off for Ballincollig and were delighted with the Cead Mile Fáilte we got when we arrived at Lakewood. Tea and snacks were laid on for us and we were made feel very welcome indeed. The Lakewood course is in absolutely fantastic condition, and is a credit to the club. We held two scrambles over the course of the day, and everyone, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful day trip. Three holes-in-one were achieved on the day by Margaret Enright, Éilish Sullivan and Michael Delaney. Well done all three.

Following on from the very positive feedback regarding this trip, and the fact that visiting other courses is a great way of engaging with the regional and national Pitch and Putt community, the next day trip to a differentclub is already being planned for June, if that can be arranged.


Lakewood Results:

Morning Competition:

Nett: Mary Daly, Stella Kinsella, Ger O’Brien

Gross: Maura Ryan, Margaret Enright, Michael Delaney

Afternoon Competition:

Nett: Cáit Mulcahy, Mary Daly, Patsy Hackett

Gross: Maura Ryan, Jacinta O’Mahoney, Paddy Noonan
