On Saturday morning last the Cunnigar team had a great win against last years winners St Patricks of Enniscrthy, St Pats were the hottest of favourites going into this game, and were expected to win comfortably.
The first pairing out were Patsy Hackett and Paul Healy, even though the lads played very good pitch and putt they came up short against a very strong St Pats duo. Next up were Declan Byrne and Aiden O'Rourke who were both on top of their game and came out winners, the third pairing were Finbarr O'Rourke and Paul Reardon who both played top class pitch and putt to beat their opponents to lead the score 2 points to 1 after the doubles.
Paddy Noonan had a great singles win to set the tone for what was to follow, wins for Declan and Paul made it 5 points to the Cunnigar, Michael A'Hearne was very unlucky to lose his game, with Aiden and Finbarr also losing their games in the singles.
Final score Cunnigar 5 points St Pats 4

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, Declan Byrne each have one each.
Breda O'Donnell (2) and Jacinta O'Mahoney (2) and Cait Mulcahy, Bridget Walsh, Mary O'Neill has now has a hole in one for the womens section.
Bonus number 15 the winner this week was Mary O'Neill.
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.
