Crumlin Rumble: 

Many thanks to all who played and contributed on our July 16th qualifying day.  We were able to raise a very healthy € 1,365 for the Crumlin Medical Research Fund.  

Lakeside Challenge:

This year on October 15th at 2:00pm we host our neighbours Blessington Lakes in the Annual Lakeside Challenge & Captain Mark is looking forward to extracting revenge when last year we saw the Trophy return to our friends to the east.

Qualification is as usual the leading 3 gents in each Category from the GOY table following the September Medal (+ 1 Captain’s pick in each category), so only two GOY events remain for qualification. The Captain and Vice Captain also participate on the day.

Leading contenders at present are as follows: 

Cat: 1: 0-11 hcap:   Mick Curran, Padraig Whelan,  Martin Deaton, Denis Mahon

Cat 2: 12-18 hcap:   Patrick Connelly, Derek Garvey, John Hyland, Dan Lawlor

Cat. 3 19-28 hcap:  Colum Smith, Tom McIntyre, Frank Lewis, Ian O'Shaughnessy

Best of luck to all, let's finish the year on a high for the club.

Club matchplays are approaching the business end of the season so as usual a reminder to keep to the deadlines please.

Final reminder for the forthcoming Pro-Am on September 19th.  Please see our website or contact Pat Barrett or Norma for more details.
