Thanks again to all volunteers who helped make this fantastic new addition to our course a reality. We will have some superb video footage on the website, twitter and Facebook later in the week.

TEAMS – PROVINCIAL TOWNS UPDATE

We had a fantastic 5-4 win over neighbours Mullingar GC on Saturday in the 1st Rd of the Provincial Towns Cup. Club Captain & Team Manager Martin Horan took Sean Egan, Kieran Lowry, Mal Kelly and Danny O’Connor away to battle in Mullingar and Danny won his match over there for us.

In Moate, George Digan led the way with a 6&5 win, and Mike Hiney battled back from 3 down to win on the 18th. Trevor Hill was beaten by Jim Thornton who had more than a little local knowledge having been a member here for years; Tosh Galvin dominated early on by winning 5 of the first 6 holes but didn’t kill his opponent off until the 16th. As results filtered through from Mullingar it became apparent that it all hinged on the final match in Moate. Johnny Foster did the club proud in drawing level on the 16th and holding his nerve with everyone watching to snatch a vital win on the 18th green. Commiserations to the Mullingar team who put up a good fight on the day and it really could have gone either way.

MIXED FOURSOMES – Well done also to the Mixed Foursomes team who beat Rathcore GC in the 2nd round. The team of Willie Digan and Veronica Colgan, Bert Burke and Mags Galvin, Liam Galvin and Beth Dunne, Brendan Keogh and Veronica Coughlan and Tommy Digan and Loreto Boland under managers Padraig Keenan and Marian Mullen won three matches away and one at home and were level in the final match on the 18th when called in.

JUNIORS NEWS –

Lisa O’Brien & David Fleming have been elected as Junior Captains for 2016 and we hope to see plenty of boys and girls taking to our fairways in the coming months. Our thanks to Moate Community School who sponsored the junior Competition last Friday afternoon. Well done to both our prize winners and competitors.

The Juniors!

 

Junior girls from Moate, Mullingar & Mount Temple with Lady captain Geraldine Coughlan & lady Vice Captain Beth Dunne last Friday.

 

COURSE – The greenkeepers have asked me to remind everyone of 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.

My first time on new 8th in regulation, but I three putted.....

 

MEMBERSHIP DRAW– Unfortunately this draw for the €200 refund was not held at the recent meeting but it will be rearranged ASAP.

Regards,

Andy Dunne

CLUB NOTES

Results

This Weeks Competition
The Lanzorote Holiday Open qualification continues this week with the top 12 April qualifiers taking their place in the final on 23rd July. There are only 12 days remaining to grab one of this months qualification places. There will be 12 qualifiers from each month (May, June and July- up to 20th July). The competition is re-entry, and play the course as set-up on the day.

The Thursday Open competition is again proving popular, with over 50 entries last week. Daylight now extends past 8.30 p.m., so why not come on down next Thursday to play the last (ever) competition on the old 8th Green/9th Teebox!!

Next weekend sees the first of the Club Sub Competitions (sponsored by Ganly's of Athlone), and as mentioned earlier, the new 8th Green/9th Teebox will be officially opened for this competition. This competition is also the first of twenty Golfer of the Year Competitions, watch out for the first update on the Web Site next weekend. In addition there is a Society on Saturday morning (9.30 - 12.30), as well as two team events Saturday afternoon (3.10 - 4.20), so the timesheet will be busy next weekend - book early to ensure your place.

The opening of the new holes is the culmination of months of work by the club, which included replacing the watering supply system to many parts of the course. Older members will remember the old 8th Green/9th Teebox as the 18th Green/1st Teebox, and will recall the drama and banter associated with them when the old clubhouse occupied that space. The new holes represent the ongoing development of the course, and will, no doubt, provide their own drama for many years to come. 

The Crozier Auto Parts Club Matchplay draw is now posted in the Locker Room, first rounds to be completed before Sunday 15th May, while the Scotch Foursomes matchplay is also happening.

Team Events
There was a dissapointing start to the team events this weekend when the Barton Cup and Duggan Cup squads were beaten by Longford and Mullingar, respectively. Next up are the Mixed Foursomes (v Rathcore) and the Provincial Towns (v Mullingar), both next Saturday afternoon. The committee would still be delighted to hear from any members who would be willing to represent the club on a team - there are still plenty of opportunities for all handicap levels. Contact any committee member or email the club (info@moategolfclub.ie) if you are interested.
