His and Hers

What an atmosphere greeted the 40 players who took part in the inaugural His and Hers mixed stroke play competition of Saturday. Many congratulations to Veronica McGorman and Pat Ryan for organising
this competition which will hopefully run throughout the coming years. Many thanks to our sponsor Mr Jimmy Scanlon of Elegant Gems Cavan (good friend of Pat Ryan’s) whose generosity made this competition possible. There was great anticipation as the pairings were drawn on the day with oooh’s and aaaah’s as the possible winning combinations were drawn. The pairings were sent along with their playing opposites to 4 different tees for a shotgun start. The winners on the day were Pat Ryan and Noirin McKenna much to everyone’s delight. Pat offered himself as Noirin’s toy boy but when she saw he was riding in a buggy she doubted his youthful looks! The couple had a great start with a fine birdie holed out by Noirin on the 3rd hole and their steady golf was enough to see them through. The runners up were Irene Rooney and George Hamilton and
in third place was Willie Lithgo and Kathleen Leonard. Everyone was treated to a great buffet lunch on their return to the clubhouse and all agreed it was a great success and a good day’s craic.
