The Winter League commenced last weekend with Gary Carty and Michael Rush leading the way on 46pts. Two teams Sean Heslin and Ted Hestor and Michael Simon and Paddy McLoughlin are joint second on 43pts. There are also two teams in joint last but neither Charlie O’Donnell or Michael Gilmartin wished to have their names published. In an interview for this website last years leader after the first round Charlie O’Donnell was asked to explain the loss of form this year. Thirty minutes later and still awaiting an answer the interview ended as the interviewer had fallen asleep.
Last week’s nine hole was won by Michael Reid with 23pts, 2nd Michael Gilmartin 23pts. Joint top of the leader board after four weeks are Michael Reid and Charlie O’Donnell both on 82pts.
Competitions for this week are the second round of the Winter League which can be played from Thursday to Sunday. Format will be a Fourball Betterball. The weekly nine hole can be played Monday – Sunday, entry is €5, re-entry €3.

The club outing to New Forest will take place next Saturday October 11th, details on club noticeboard. A option to travel by luxury coach with tour guide included is available, please see noticeboard for details.
Finally, well done to our two Michaels, (Rush & Simon) on their hole in one’s last week, both on Thursday. Personally I don’t understand all the fuss, James and I had two triple bogies on the 4th last Sunday and we didn’t go round boasting about it.
