Mens Matchplay League
The inaugural Men’s Matchplay League is now in full swing, and all the participants are enjoying the challenge.
This league has been sponsored by The Shamrock Restaurant, O’Connell St., Dungarvan, and the club is most appreciative of such a very generous gesture by this popular local restaurant.
This is a new competition format for the club, and will give everyone, especially the inter-club team, some badly needed practice in a Matchplay setting.
There are 14 players in total taking part in the league which means there will be 13 rounds of games. Each and every one of the participants is capable of winning this league, and we look forward to some fiercely competitive matches in the coming weeks. Best of luck to all the lads!

Hole in One
Last year we held a Hole in one competiton
so we will continue with a prize for the most hole in ones during the club competiton season this year as it proved very popular.
There's fierce competiton already with everyone trying to get the ultimate hole in one.
To date Patsy Hackett (3), Paddy Noonan (2) Michael Ahearne, Liam Simms, each have one each.
Breda O'Donnell (2) and Jacinta O'Mahoney (2) and Cait Mulcahy has now has a hole in one for the womens section.
Bonus number 11 the winner this week was Corinne McGee.
Leaving Pitch Marks when playing destroys the greens, it takes a lot of care and attention to keep them in pristine condition, so all members and green fees are asked to repair them and use the correct repairer when doing so.
Also do not use the club head to take balls out of holes on greens as this damages the hole.
If anyone has an hour or two Mondays to Fridays to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.
