Uden Cup Result

Skerries Uden Cup team played their first match on Saturday 19th May against Donabate Golf Club.

With two matches at Home and three matches Away the team performed excellent winning all three matches in Donabate GC and looked like the winners of the match going down the 19th in Skerries when they were called in.

I would like to thank all the members of the panel who have taken the time to attend the driving range over 6 weeks in February and March and the practice sessions in Donabate and Skerries.

The next opponents ( still to be actually confirmed ) is Corrstown again with three matches away and two at home.

First 9 Hole Qualifying Competition – Wednesday 16th May from 5pm

The GUI has requested that all clubs consider having 9 holes Qualifying Competitions. These competitions were introduced by CONGU to enable players who do not have the time or who are unable to complete 18 Holes, to maintain a handicap which reflects their current playing ability.

9 Hole qualifying competitions are open to all players, but should not be a substitute for 18 Hole qualifying competitions.

The basis of these competitions is that an SSS is applied for the 9 Hole played and 18 stableford points are added for the 9 Holes not played.  However, such 9 Hole Qualifying competitions cannot be facilitated at the same time as an 18 Hole competition.

With this in mind we are running our first 9 hole qualifying competition on Wednesday 16th May from 17:00 to 19:00hrs and the sheet is now open.

NB: A player cannot return two qualifying scores on same day.

Skerries Barton Cup Team Beat Balbriggan

The Barton Cup team got off to a flying start in beating a highly fancied Balbriggan team 3 ½ to 1 ½ on Sunday. Balbriggan had beaten Baltray in the first round proper. Youth and experience were in evidence as Paul and Michael Branagan’s charges delivered the goods. Junior Captain Ethan McGarry combined brilliantly with Ciaran Barker to seal the Skerries win on the 18th in a 2 up victory. Not to be outdone, they were ably supported by veteran John McInerney, and Martin Coleman in the match behind. McInerney had chipped from the trees at the back of the 17th stone dead to a red flag and concession. He then followed that up by splitting the fairway on 18 before being called in with the match over.

Second pairing Keith Hickey and Fergus Gannon won the vital first point in a great match, 4 and 2. Gannon had good support in the form of dad Frank, our Irish international. In what was a pivotal win away from home, multi-tasking co-manager Paul Branagan, teamed with Barry Sherwin to win 2 and 1 after a hard fought match. Louis Dwyer and Conor Power met stiff opposition from the home team who secured their only point of the match.

Captain Domo was in attendance to offer his support, as was Lady Captain Ciara at the 18thgreen, and Skerries now play Ashbourne away on Saturday 28th April (2 games at home and 3 away). Hopefully the momentum will continue in what has always been a special competition for Skerries members.
