CLUB NOTES 22/5/2016

Congratulations to Rory McIlroy on winning the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. This was a truly fantastic performance and the manner in which he closed out the victory on 16 and 18 was particularly awesome. If that doesn’t have golfers young and old hurrying to the golf course to play I don’t know what will. I was there myself and spotted a few other Moate members on the day and I’m sure they all enjoyed it as much as I did.

On the home front we really need to continue promoting our Lanzarote Competition.  Men’s Captain Martin Horan was interviewed on Midlands 103FM’s sport and in his assured dulcet tones gave the competition a great plug altogether. We would very much appreciate it if everyone can make an effort to play in it themselves. It would be even better if you can bring at least 1 visitor to play in it at some stage.

Thanks to our sponsors, everyone who participated in competitions recently and of course well done to all our prize winners.  

RESULTS –

22/5/2016 O’Sullivan Insurances (Stableford)

1st Overall Liam Lynam (15) 40pts, Cat 1 – 1st Jamie Colgan (6) 36pts, Cat 2 – 1st   George Garvey (9) 38pts, Cat 3 – 1st John Gavin (18) 38pts, Cat 4 – 1st Gerard Coughlan (26) 38pts, Ladies – Anne Ledwith (28) 39pts and Seniors – Padraig Keenan (11) 37pts.

Cat 4 Winner Gerard Coughlan

19/5/2016 - Ladies & Gents Thursday Open (Stableford)

1st Val Keogh (16) 36pts, 2nd Jack O’Kelly Lynch – Mt Temple (10) 36pts.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – This year we are having a Senior Scratch Cup to go along with our popular Junior, Intermediate & Minor Scratch Cups on 28th / 29th May. The ‘Senior’ event for handicaps 0-3 will be over 36 holes on Sunday 29th and pre-booking / payment is essential for this section. Joe Digan of Spar Express in Moate is once again generously sponsoring these competitions and we are very grateful for his continued support.

The Thursday Open is proving very popular and we hope this continues to be the case on the 26th.      The Lanzarote Open singles stableford qualifier continues. Remember 12 get through to the final each month from April to July with the overall winner getting a holiday in Lanzarote. A fabulous 2nd prize has now been confirmed as a weekend for 2 (with evening meal & golf) at Faithlegg Hotel & Golf Club in Waterford.

TEAM NEWS – Well done to our Mixed Foursomes team who had a fine victory over Mullingar and hard luck to our Barton Shield team who failed to qualify for day 2 on a countback. Now don’t tell him I told you because we all know how shy he is but Liam Galvin performed absolute heroics this weekend playing for both of the aforementioned teams in the same day. Shhh! Keep it to yourselves now.  

(L) Liam Galvin & Eamon Coughlan & (R) Paul Coughlan & Jamie Colgan on Barton Shield duty.

Our Pierce Purcell team is well on the way to being assembled and I’m sure we’ll be primed for action in the qualifier at Castle Barna on Saturday June 11th. For those of you unfamiliar with this event it’s a 5 pair foursomes team with a combined minimum handicap of 27 while no individual can have been lower than 12 last year. I know John Smyth in particular is gutted that he misses out on selection by dipping to 11 briefly in 2015!

COURSE – Seeing as our course is looking fantastic at the moment we must keep emphasizing the importance of repairing pitch marks and divots. Please don’t leave it to someone else, repair as you go and keep the course in the condition we all deserve.

MATCHPLAY – We realise they can be tricky to squeeze in but please ensure that your 1st round Club Matchplay and Scotch Foursomes Matchplay ties are completed ASAP.  The deadline was May 15th but I’m sure Jimmy will allow a little bit of leniency. However, if he has to start making phone calls elimination will follow!

PRESENTATION OF PRIZES – Next Sunday night at 8.00pm and all prize winners will be notified but of course you don’t have to be a prize winner to attend and show your appreciation to our sponsors, fellow members and visitors.

Regards,

CLUB NOTES 8/5/2016

10/5/16 - Note - Fixtures Secretary Jimmy Kassaris would like to sincerely apologise to both Michael Gantley and Frank Kiernan over the results error at the weekend where Michael was named as Senior Category winner with 33pts while in fact Frank had 35pts and actually won the category.

 

A weekend of 2 halves weather wise saw just 14 take part in the weekend competition on a rainswept Saturday but this was bolstered by the sunshine drawing out over 100 on the Sunday. With a bit of luck the sunny spell will continue and people will continue to support our competitions in this positive way. I had a busy Sunday of two halves with a morning win in the Club Matchplay vs. Kevin Jordan which ended on the 19th after a titanic struggle of superb golf from the both us, (Not!) While my afternoon session didn’t go quite as well with a not so narrow Scotch Foursomes defeat for my son Callum & me against a strong pairing in Eamon Connolly & Johnny Mullally. I’d just like to say it was a pleasure playing with and against you all on such a glorious day and the course being in great condition helped too. The evening was rounded off nicely with a very successful joint Ladies & Gents presentation of prizes where Jimmy Kassaris interpretations of Irish surnames continue to amaze and entertain. Happy golfing!!

 

Miscellaneous pics from tonights presentation. Apologies for poorer quality of some, changing light and flashes from a rival paparazzi didnt help ;-)
