Seamus Mulholland wins Captain’s Prize; Jeff Sexton is best of the Juniors

Congratulations to Seamus Mulholland

on winning Peter Lamont’s Captain’s Prize for 2019 with a fantastic 24 hole aggregate net score of 94.  The weather was great on Saturday but the course played long and tough.  Our photo shows Seamus  putting out to win on the 18th with playing partners Kenny Hay and Jimmy Chawke.

Best Junior on the day was Jeff Sexton, a young man with a great golfing future ahead of him, who also shot 94 – a very impressive score.

Easter Golf Taster for Boys and Girls aged 8 to 18

Thursday 18th April – during the Easter holidays – a great chance to try golf.

Please encourage as many boys and girls as possible to come along to our first golf taster – it is free and is supported by the Junior Development team of the Confederation of Golf on Ireland.
Participants don’t have to have played the game before nor need to have a relation in the club. Golf clubs can be made available by the Club if needed.

Our own Irish and Curtis Cup International, Maria Dunne, will show our future golfers how enjoyable golf can be and encourage all to give it a go.

Elaine McGloughlin at 085-7855316 has all the details.
