The annual Swing for God fundraiser held this year at Nuremore attracted a large field of competitors to play in the 4 person team format with 2 scores to count at each hole. Father Jerry White member at Clones encourages our members to take part and Maureen Lynch, Noirin McKenna, Kathleen Leonard and Veronica McGorman gave a very good account of themselves with their 88 points leading right to the last two teams finishing (who were incidentally both mens teams) and the ladies came a very credible 3rd overall. Well done ladies and apologise for not getting this in last week’s report but we didn’t want your achievement overshadowed by the LC Day report!
Week 14 scores were from Roisin Kerr 19 and seniors Kathleen Leonard 14.

The Lady Members Cup generously sponsored by Ciaran Smith Professional at Rossmore Golf Club attracted a large field over the Sunday and Thursday competition days but only one lady could really open her shoulders and risk losing shots before Lady Captain’s Day and win the coveted Cup and that was of course Lady Captain herself! Congratulations to Lady Captain Rosita McCabe who carded a fabulous nett 68 winning by 4 clear shots and taking a nice full shot off her handicap now down to 14! The second place went to Elaine Hamilton with a very nice nett 72 and Roisin Kerr who is only just back from a 5 week absence claimed the gross with 92. Section A (0-20) was won by Mary Trant with an astounding nett 81, Section B (21-28) Veronica McGorman 73 and section C (29-36) was won by Kathleen Leonard on a countback from Roberta Hamilton. Congratulations ladies!
