The “Butchers Block” Cunnigar Ladies Open took place last Sunday June 30th. This annual event is one of the major competitions for Ladies in the country and is always well supported and this year was no exception. A total of 68 competitors, from 15 clubs, arrived at our course last Sunday. This record number of lady competitors exceeded our wildest dreams, and it was a just reward for the immense amount of preparatory work that had been put into this event. The course was immaculate, as good as it ever could be. The catering for this event has taken weeks of planning and preparation, and, on the day, professional caterers couldn’t have achieved the standard of the fayre that was produced in the clubhouse kitchen by the Cunnigar Ladies. It was incredible!
The scoring during the competition reflected the fine weather and the superb condition of our course.
At the end of the day, it was our own Lorraine Troy who took the well-deserved honours as the overall winner. Lorraine beat off some stiff competition from some of the best players in the country and achieved a magnificent win. All the practice of late has really paid off for Lorraine, and she more than deserves this great victory.
Many of our visitors stayed around after the presentation and enjoyed a great craic with some of our members. Our club is very appreciative of the on-going support of The Butchers Block, Dungarvan Shopping Centre, who generously sponsors this competition annually. This event goes from strength to strength each year and, with the continued support of our generous sponsor, there is every reason for this trend to continue.
