HOSTS OF GENTS ALL IRELAND STROKEPLAY CHAMPIONSHIPS 2015
Ladies National Social Day
On Saturday last a 100+ ladies descended on The Cunnigar Pitch and Putt, they came from all over Ireland for this National Ladies Social Day.
It was an open draw for a 3 ball scramble (36 holes) which meant that ladies would be drawn with people they had probabley never met before.
There was no local success but everyone who played was a winner and made new friends for life and to top off a lovely day Jacinta O'Mahoney and Ann Wall both got a hole in one.
The conditions were good and sunny with a blistery wind but the wind didn't hinder all the high scores on the day.
The main topic of conversation was the magnificent course and the warm welcome the visitors got when entering our club.
The course was, as always, in immaculate condition and its a credit to all those who work so hard on the course to keep it in the style our members and visitiors come to expect it to be in.
NEC officer Paudraig O'Shea in his speech said he had yet to see any course in better shape, in his travels around Ireland.
We would like thank all the ladies and gents who made this day such a success.
Also a special thank you to the officers of the NEC for attending and hosting this event at The Cunnigar Pitch and Putt Club.

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 41 the winner this week was Ann Wall.
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.
Did you know?
In a strokeplay competition you must complete the play of each hole, i.e you may not pick up your ball before putting it.
Adults 80 euro
