Monthly Report

October has been the busiest month we have had for many years on the golf course, and unfortunately pace of play was an issue on some occasions. Fortunately for the membership, the six hours of exclusive starting times allowed for some buffer zones and managed to avoid the five hour rounds on most days!

October saw the Wooden Spoon being handed to the men for the third year in a row. Congratulations to the Ladies, who will probably see their handicap allocation reduced to ¾ for next year!

On the 7th of October we had the Pink Day and it raised the impressive amount of €5,136, which was higher than what was announced on the day as fortunately we received some further donations after the tournament. A big thank you to all participants and especially Shirley Griffiths for organising the day.

The October Stableford was won by Knut Ellingsen, who seems to be in very good form lately. On two occasions we tried to play the Autumn Medal Rosebowl but unfortunately the weather would not allow it; it has been re-scheduled for the 15th of November, which I hope will be a better day for it.

October was a month of mixed fortunes weather-wise; we experienced some glorious days but also some gloriously wet days too.

The first competition of the month was 'Pink Day'. Shirley Griffiths, as ever, had worked extremely hard to make the day a success and it was. There were more players than in previous years and more money was raised - well done Shirley and thank you.

The Wooden Spoon competition took place on the 9th of October. I was not looking forward to receiving the spoon from my husband, and fortunately I didn't have to. My team played really well and defeated the men 10 - 6. Well done ladies.

Our October Medal was won by Dee Garvin in Division 1 with a nett 73 and by Vera Watkins in Division 2 with a nett 77.

On Friday the 16th of October, we held a morning fun competition followed by the Annual Dinner in the evening. The competition was played over two different courses and was won by Sue Georges and Fiona Hanby, and Janet Leffler and Paula Burke Hickey.
