PRO’s Weekly Report – 8th July 2013



On Sat last the 6th we held the knockout stage of the above competition.  There were 16 players remaining in same after the first round two weeks ago. A draw was made before play on Sat morning and the knockout stages began. After three rounds of 18 hole matchplay the two still standing were Steven Ruane and John Browne. The final of same will be held on Tuesday evening  the 9th at 6. 30 and we wish both John and Steven the best of luck in same. Please note change of date from Mon to Tuesday evening (as Co. Board meeting is on Mon evening). Thanks to our fellow clubman, Michael Flynn who has sponsored the prizes for this competition once again and we are very grateful to him for same.


The Lough Lene Gaels hurling club are holding a  Scramble  on our course on Saturday next the 13th.   There are three starting times 8 am,  11 am and 2 pm.   Each team will consist of 3 persons.

Cost of team is €30. There will be prizes for pitch and putt members who have teams  as well as prizes for non pitch and putt members. We hope that as many of our members as possible will support this worthy cause.


The above take place on Sunday next the 14th July. The Gents are in Ryston and the Ladies are in Athgarvan. In the Gents we have Michael Buckley, John Browne and Alan Hanlon and our only lady representative is Liz Bloem. We wish each of them the best of luck.
