Mr Gerry Traynor Captain’s Prize to the Ladies takes place on Sunday 16th of August and Thursday 20th of August. This is the last Golfer of the Year competition in this year’s exciting nip and tuck competition so it could all come down to this last fixture! The Sunday players will have to be mindful of not enjoying themselves too much at the President’s Prize celebrations the night before!! This is a stroke Medal DRAW.
There have been some great matches so far in the mixed match play with reigning champions Alex and Roberta Hamilton just edging out the McConkey pairing, P J and Brid Finlay beating the O’Tooles, Captain Gerry Traynor and Loretto pipping Joy Cassidy and Bernard McAviney and Paddy Clarke and Teresa Fitzpatrick beating Paul & Paula Jenkins. There are still a couple of matches to be played before the end of the month in this most amiable contest.
In front of a large turnout, the Captain (Mr Gerry Traynor) and Lady Captain (Rosita McCabe) Drive-In took place on Saturday last with two excellent shots landing on the green (what we expected of them) on the Par 3. The weather had not been too kind earlier in the day with the course covered in snow, with the result that the 3 Person Team Event organised in their honour which had up to forty teams listed to play on the day had to be extended. The 3 Person Team Event is now extended up to Sunday next 1st March and can be played in conjunction with your Spring League Competition.
