Quiz – How well do you know your Golf Course?

The Spring Update contains a quiz on page 5, which will test your knowledge of the course. Entry is free and we will present a small prize on the first Saturday of Open Week so please have your entries in by Friday 28th June at the latest. You can download the entry sheet here.
One entry per person only please – place it in the box provided in the bar.

Golf Course is a Haven for our Wild Birds

Skerries resident and Birdwatch Ireland member, Frank Prendergast, walked the course on Tuesday morning and identified (by song and/or sight) the list of birds in the accompanying pdf.

There are small photos of each species, downloaded from Birdwatch Ireland’s website and the file includes links to their detailed information on each bird.

Later in June Frank will walk the course at evening time and hopes to identify some of the shyer birds by hearing the call of their newly hatched.
We are hoping to repeat the exercise later in the year and into winter to build up a fuller database of species, whose song and flight we can enjoy and appreciate as we play golf and develop our golf course.

McDonnell Cup Team loses out to Sutton

Very hard luck

to our McDonnell Cup team, managed by Billy Concannon, who were beaten yesterday when Sutton managed to take one of the three matches in Skerries.

While the sun came out for most of the round and temperatures were good, the strong breeze made for challenging conditions. Mens Captain Peter Lamont welcomed both sets of players on the 1st tee and followed the matches around.

The Home Matches

 Match 1 : Paul Rogers & Joe Byrne

Match 2 : Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell

Match 3 : Pat Loughman & Gerry Lloyd

Skerries raced into a quick lead with the impressive pairing of Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell (both making their debuts for Skerries) going 4 up after 4 holes. The other home pairings of Paul Rogers & Joe Byrne and Pat Loughman & Gerry Lloyd were also doing well on the front 9 against strong opposition in very tight matches, both turning 1 up.

 Sutton started to raise their game on the back 9 and eventually ran out 4 and 1 winners, with Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell winning their match.

 The standard of golf played by both sets of players was extremely high, with one Skerries pairing close to level par.

The visiting team were very complimentary of the condition of the course and the welcome they received in Skerries.

Junior Boys narrowly lose out to Portmarnock

After a very competitive match,

which went to a playoff, Portmarnock went through to the fourth round of the Irish Junior Foursomes yesterday when they defeated Jim McDonnell’s Skerries team in a sunny but windy Portmarnock.

Our boys, Robert Kenny, Ethan McGarry, Jack O’Driscoll and Nathan Grimes, did the club proud – and it took a very strong team to beat them.
