Cunnigar Pitch and Putt Pub League
This year for the first time we have held a pitch and putt pub league. 
We have had a great response to this new venture.
There has been a total of 20 teams playing from the start of the league.
Friday evening last saw the Final of our Pitch and Putt Pub League, the last game of the competition was between John Keanes A and the Anchor B.
There was a lot of nervous tension as the lads waited to tee off, things settled down after a few holes but they were never going to reach the heights that they had in the earlier rounds.
After playing 36 holes the winning team was The Anchor B beating John Keanes A by just 5 shots.
Anchor B Team consisted of David Buckley, Craig O'Connor and James Phelan
the runners up John Keanes A were John Charles, Kieran Wall and Daniel Keohan
tied for 3rd were Anchor A Paul Healey, Trevor Crotty and Mark Shanahan and 

John Keanes B were Ivan Fitzgerald, Michael Byrnes and Brian Foley.The cup was presented at John Keanes who was the sponsor of the cup for this competiton.  On receiving the Cup David Buckley thanked the Cunnigar Pitch and putt Club for the smooth running of the tournament, and of the course being in pristine condition and for all the enjoyment that all of the teams got from playing and making new friends along the way.
Afterwards the cup travelled to the Anchor Bar, the home of the winning team where Ray filled it (more than once).
People who played in the Cunnigar for the first time were amazed at the great condition of the Club and Course, 
We would like to thank the 60 players who took part and gave such a positive feed back from members and non members alike.
Also to Timmy who offered to sponsor the Cup, which was very much appreciated.
And to Corinne, Patsy and Paddy who put in a lot of time and effort to make sure that this tournament was the success that it was.
It was a brilliant Competiton and it was a joy to be part of it, we are sure this tournament will go from strength to strength and we look forward to doing it all again next year.
