Congratulations to Ger O'Brien who played great pitch and putt in the National Gents Strokeplay and was unlucky not to make the playoff.
However to finish in the top 12 in Ireland is a great achievement. These finals were held in Stackallen County Meath.

Dungarvan is a seaside resort town and harbour on the south coast of Ireland in the province of Munster. Dungarvan is the county town and administrative centre of County Waterford. The town's Irish name means "Garbhan's fort", referring to Saint Garbhan who founded a church there in the seventh century. Dungarvan has a magnificent 18 hole Championship Pitch and Putt course, 900 metres in length, set in the picturesque surrounds of Dungarvan Bay - Cunnigar. Cunnigar welcomes new members and visitors all year round (weather permitting). And the weather can be huge factor in playing Cunnigar. The coastal winds can play havoc.The Cunnigar is a beautiful three kilometre long stretch of sandy beach land that juts out into Dungarvan bay like a pointed finger. The name Cunnigar is the Irish translation for rabbit warren. The first golf course in Dungarvan was situated on the Cunnigar. Coastal erosion eventually put paid to that. Cunnigar Pitch and Putt club was built on wasteland across the bay from the Cunnigar stretch of beach land. The club officially opened its gates on 15th June 1990. It was the brainchild of Councillor Paddy Power, Chairperson of Dungarvan Urban Council. The modern day course boasts beautiful teeboxes with wide gravel surrounds.
There will be a club outing on the 23rd August to St Canices Pitch and Putt Kilkenny.
Anyone interested in going you can put your name on sheet in club house.
Now that the Club is open if anyone has an hour or two to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.

Hole in One
This year we are having a prize for the most hole in ones during the season.
These must be in a Club competiton at the Cunnigar Pitch and Putt and cards must be verified by the tournament committee.
To date Patsy Hackett and Paddy Noonan, John Carroll , Michael Havens, Liam Simms (2) , Richard O'Leary and Ivan Fitzgerald have each got one in competition.
Ladies to date are Breda O'Donnell and Sadie Ui Mhiachain, Lorraine Troy, Breda Foley, Margaret Shanahan and Maureen Power.
The juvenile competitons are proving to be a great success, at the moment we are in the middle of a league with 2 weeks left to play, it is being played on a points system and includes different games each week.
At the moment Toby Taylor is ahead with 11 points closely followed by Kyle Hackett with 10 points, Colm O'Shea with 9 points and Alex Shanahan with 8 points, with the rest of the players following closely behind the gap between 1st and last is very small and can change dramatically each week.
Juvenile Competitons are now underway they will be played on Fridays at 12pm all members are welcome to play and this will also be great practice for the Munster Schools Competiton.
