Week 7: Season Leaders: Gross: 32 Denis Mahon & James McCarron : Net: 26.0 Lady Capt Catherin Curley & Pat McCarton

Given the deluge that this evening's almost 40 golfers had to endure the word "Summer" in the title above seems like a misnomer.


Nevertheless we had a few Gross scores of 34 and Pearse Daly and Eoin Curley had a great round of 33 in atrocious conditions, just one short of the leading Best Gross for 2017 of 32. Well done lads.


In 2nd place were Ciaran Malone and Seamus Breen (who is not long back from his warm weather training in the USA) with a Nett score of 28.2.


The winners were Jerry and Sean Lambe (who is going off now for his warm weather training in Spain) with a great score in the conditions of 27.4.

Congratulations to the prizewinners.

Huge congratulations also go to Andy Doran who has been playing golf for more than 30 years. He had his first Hole in One tonight. It came in the rain tonight
n the 6th with a sweetly hit 5 wood which was witnessed by John Finnegan. Maureen and Audrey were on the Ladies tee and wondered why they could only see one ball on the green! In 17 years of these Social Scrambles this is only the third 'Ace'. Well done Andy.

Finally, tonight saw the handing over of the Club's latest Interclub Pennant. John Horan, on behalf of the team of Mary and John Curley, Rosaleen Prescott and Noel Reilly, Miriam and Jerry Solan and Ann and John Horan, presented the Donadea Trophy Runners Up Pennant to Captain Mark Reilly who congratulated all involved and promptly hung the Pennant alongside the Clubs two other winning Pennants from the South Leinster and Brennan Cup.

Next week is Tulfarris Open Week but the Social Scramble goes ahead as usual teeing off between 4 and 6pm on Wednesday.
