The Alliance at Virginia will take place on Monday 17th of February (postponed from 10th of February) The Alliance held in Clones was a great success and congratulations to our own Elaine Hamilton who claimed victory. Thanks to President Catherine Farrell and also Teresa Hanawin, Mary O’Toole, Phyllis McDermott and Kathleen Leonard for all their hard work. Lady Captain Bridie Keenan was on hand to greet the visitors as they finished their round. There were 27 players.
Lady Captain Collette McCahery hosted her weekend away at Glasson last weekend and it was very much enjoyed by all who attended. The ladies loved the course (but not the bunkers!) and Lady Captain had the best score BUT graciously refused the prize. Thanks to Dennis for his generous donation! Some of the ladies still had the energy to come back to Clones to play in the weekly competition on Sunday and a particular mention to Roberta Hamilton who started and finished her front 9 with birdies carding 22 points for the 9 holes!
