Despite a deluge of rain showers between 2 and 4pm close to 30 golfers turned up to ‘brave the elements’ - which actually eased off as the evening went on. The wind continued to be a factor however.
Last week’s second place golfers were Jon Crocker and Gina Phelan which earned them a reduction in their handicap of 0.5 - but despite this they still managed to secure second place again this evening with an adjusted Nett Score of 29.9. Similarly John and Mary Curley were carrying a one shot adjustment from a previous win but despite this they were in first place again tonight with a score of 29.4.
Well done to the prize winners. It’s hard to keep good golfers down.
The EuroPro Tour Event will be on in Tulfarris in week commencing Monday 26 August - a great opportunity to ‘showcase’ the Resort to hundreds of millions of homes via SkySports. It also is a good opportunity for us members to see how the pros do on the Tulfarris Championship layout. I have no doubt that Course Superintendent David Brady and his team will have it at its very best.
Our final Social Scramble for Summer 2019 therefore will take place next Wednesday 21st August. This will be your last chance to catch the ‘leaders’ for the season - Best Nett of 25.0 scored by Paddy O’Reilly and Dean McGarr and Best Gross of 32 recorded by Brendan and John Daly.
We are pleased that Resort Manager John O’Grady is once again hosting a finger food reception for Members after the golf. Thank you John.
Also on the night as you have already been advised by email from Hon Secretary, Ian O’Shaughnessy, the Club are availing of the opportunity to present the prizes from John Hyland’s Presidents Prize competition so we expect to see a good turnout next week. In that regard, if you intend playing in the Scramble could we suggest that you come along as close as possible to 4pm as there will be some ‘pressure’ on tee times closer to 6pm.
