Week 12: Leaders remain: Gross 30 Brendan Daly & Mick Curran: Net 26.0 Lady Capt Catherine Curley & Pat McCarton

A slightly smaller than usual field of golfers took part in this evening's scramble. The rain falling between 2 and 4 probably deterred a few, but thankfully it cleared away for the duration of the golf. In any event, what was lacking in quantity was more than compensated for by the quality of the golf.

More than half of the 'pairs' recorded Gross scores of level par 36 or better! No mean feat around Tulfarris across a wide range of handicaps.

Denis Mahon and Paul Murphy had a good Gross of 33 and a good Nett of 28.8 to take second place.

Mary and John Curley also had a Gross 33 and a great Nett of 26.6 to win tonight.

Well done to the prizewinners.

Tom O'Shea 'scrutinised' the cards as usual and we send congratulations and best wishes to Tom and Kay as they celebrate their 49th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow.

Same time next week for the penultimate social scramble for Summer 2017.
