CLUB NOTES 4/12/16

The winter golfers are a hardy lot! It was great to see a good crowd out on such a bitterly cold day on Sunday and despite the mixed weather the course is holding up very well. As we near the end of 2016 I’d like to take this opportunity to say well done and thank you to both our outgoing Captains Martin Horan & Geraldine Coughlan. I hope they both enjoyed it as much as we did.

RESULTS – 

13 Hole Turkey (stableford) – 28th November to 4th December 2016.

Cat 1 – Eamon Coughlan (5) 29pts, Cat 2 – Noel Curtis (13) 31pts, Cat 3 – Seamus Fagan (17) 29pts & Cat 4 – Billy Coughlan (19) 33pts.  

Bringing home the turkey, Cat 1 Winner Eamon Coughlan -

NEXT COMPETITIONS – The next 13 hole Turkey competition starts on Monday 5th December and runs all week. Entry €5 and re-entry €3. Your Winter League rounds can also be played any day.

SEERY’S CASH & CARRY WINTER LEAGUE – We are delighted that this annual event is once again being sponsored by Seery’s Cash & Carry. The Ballymahon gang of Jimmy Lennon, Joe Burke, Andrew Nally & Dermot Sheehy continue to lead the way on 422pts and I see they have just 4 rounds left to play. The newly installed President Kieran Heavin’s team are 2nd on 381pts with newly uninstalled Captain Martin Horan’s crew on 306pts in 3rd. Biggest movers of the week are Tommy Conlon’s Fab 4. Himself, Ray Lynam, Sham Dolan & Jimmy Kassaris rise 12 places to 5th. Going into reverse by dropping to 18th is Derek Claffey’s team of Enda Claffey, Pat Byrne & Liam Lynam. Only 2 teams have not played any rounds at all and I’m sure we’ll see some activity there over the Christmas / New Year period.

All the Presidents Men.....

There was a new set of guidelines introduced for this year and to clarify here are the main ones – 1) 4 players per team. 2) 3 of 4 scores to count each round. 3) 5 of teams 6 rounds count towards overall qualifying score. 4) No % of scores carried forward to final. 5) As always a random draw will decide the fourball you play in on Grand Final day. 6) Most importantly the Final Day scoring system has changed to: 1st in each fourball 5pts, 2nd = 3pts, 3rd = 2pts 4th = 1pt and there is also 1pt each for best front 9 & best back 9. Then the 4 team members scores from their respective fourballs are added together to determine the final positions. This means a person could win their fourball with 40pts and get 5pts but a player can also win his fourball with 30pts and still get 5pts for their team.

AGM – The Management Committee AGM was held on Sunday 4th December in the clubhouse. There were 2 motions up for discussion and both were carried without the need for a vote. Both related to our membership pricing for 2017 and full details will be posted on the website in the coming days.

Captain & Chairman Martin Horan thanked the members, course staff, volunteers and various committees for their hard work and support throughout the year. This was echoed by Marian Mullen in her Hon. Secretary’s report. Treasurer Sean Dunne received a round of applause for his efforts as Treasurer and was duly reelected for 2017 despite their being fierce competition for the position! We would like to thank everyone who made the effort to attend.

The various new committees’ will be posted on the website in full after the Ladies AGM.

INTERMEDIATE ALLIANCE – Ciaran Malone has asked me to remind everyone that the Xmas outing is on in Athlone GC  on Sunday 11th December and tee times are available from 9.30 – 12.00

 

and here's the overdue photos from last week -

CLUB NOTES 27/11/16

** Photos will follow later in the week I've been a bit squeezed on time!

 

Our thanks go to everyone who attended the Men’s AGM on Thursday night last. It was of course a special occasion for me as I became Captain for 2017 and I am very appreciative of being selected by the outgoing Captain, Martin Horan. Serving as his Vice Captain and being on committee with Martin over the past few years has been a pleasure and I hope I’ve picked up a few tips along the way. Martin had a great year and I am deeply honoured to be following in his footsteps and of course the many other club stalwarts. I will be doing my very best to emulate them all during my tenure as your Captain in 2017.

As you will have seen we had to do some major tree felling during the week. There might be more next week as I still managed to hit the one we left standing on the first fairway!

Congratulations to all involved with Moate’s efforts in the ipb Pride of Place initiative. Moate won their category at the awards ceremony in Belfast over the weekend. A fantastic achievement and we are very proud to have played a small part in it.

RESULTS – 

13 Hole Turkey (stableford) – 21st to 27th November 2016

Cat 1 – Liam Galvin (5) 29pts, Cat 2 – Tommy Costelloe (12) 29pts, Cat 3 – Tommy Campbell (17) 30pts & Cat 4 – Shane Nugent (19) 33pts.  

NEXT COMPETITIONS – The next 13 hole Turkey competition starts on Monday 28th November and runs all week. Entry €5 and re-entry €3. Your Winter League rounds can also be played any day.

SEERY’S CASH & CARRY WINTER LEAGUE – We are delighted that this annual event is once again being sponsored by Ollie & Eileen Seery of Seery’s Cash & Carry. Thanks to them both for being super supporters of the club.  

We now have 32 teams entered and we might even get a couple more so even if you don’t have a team of 4 sorted yet ask Anna to pop your name on our standby list and we’ll assign you to a team. Rounds have been under way a couple of weeks now and the early leaders are Jimmy Lennon’s team from Ballymahon. They have 395pts but a lot of rounds played so they can still be reeled in by teams behind with games in hand. Martin Horan’s team is sitting pretty in 4th and the Clara outfit of Sean Dunne, Vincent Rickard, Dermot Kenny and John Naughton are currently occupying the last automatic qualifying place in 15th. The full league table is now on the website.

There was a new set of guidelines introduced for this year and to clarify here are the main ones – 1) 4 players per team. 2) 3 of 4 scores to count each round. 3) 5 of teams 6 rounds count towards overall qualifying score. 4) No % of scores carried forward to final. 5) As always a random draw will decide the fourball you play in on Grand Final day. 6) Most importantly the Final Day scoring system has changed to: 1st in each fourball 5pts, 2nd = 3pts, 3rd = 2pts 4th = 1pt and there is also 1pt each for best front 9 & best back 9.

This means a person could win their fourball with 40pts and get 5pts but a player can also win his fourball with 30pts and still get 5pts for their team.

MOVEMBER BUGGY FUNDRAISER – Thank you to everyone who supported our Movember fundraiser and of course well done and a huge thanks to the now not so hairy participants.

ROCK’N’ROLL BINGO – Again we are very grateful to everyone who attended or bought tickets for the Rock’N’Roll Bingo last Friday. As always the Ladies Club did a tremendous job, a great time was had by all and everything went smoothly on the night.

Regards,

November 20th 2016:

On behalf of the Men’s Committee who hold their AGM in the Clubhouse on Thursday 24th November at 8pm we ask you to please make a special effort to attend. It is important that you show your support to the lads who readily volunteer their time and energy year after year to help run the club on your behalf. We are holding the Movember Shave Off on the same night and there will also be some outstanding prizes presented.

RESULTS –  13 Hole Turkey (stableford) – 14th to 20th November

1st Danny O’Connor (11) 32pts, 2nd Tommy Rosney (12) 31pts.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – The next 13 hole Turkey competition starts on Monday 21st November and runs all week. Entry €5 and re-entry €3. Your Winter League rounds can also be played any day.

WINTER LEAGUE – I’m told the actual number is 31 teams entered which is great but we still have room for a few more. There is plenty of time to get your rounds in before the Grand Final in late February 2017. We will have the first full update next weekend so check in then to see how your team is doing. If you don’t have a team of 4 sorted but still want to participate ask Anna to pop your name on our standby list and we’ll assign you to a team.

MOVEMBER BUGGY FUNDRAISER – Please continue to support our men with the Movember hairy faces. Joe Creggy is really looking forward to the big shave off on Thursday 24th. Remember this is a joint fundraiser and we are going to purchase much needed buggies and also make a donation to our regular charity Westmeath Hospice. If you haven’t met anyone with a sponsor card yet donations can be made in the shop.

MEN’S AGM – As mentioned above the Men’s AGM is on Thursday 24th November at 8pm in the clubhouse. Please make an effort to attend.

ROCK’N’ROLL BINGO –The Ladies Club Rock’n’Roll Bingo is at 7.30 pm on Friday November 25th.  Although ‘nearly’ sold out, tickets will be available on the door for just €5.

GOLFING MYTHS & FACTS –  MYTH: A golfer who is off the green must always take their shot before a golfer who is already on the green.

FACT: The player farthest from the hole, regardless of where they are is always entitled to play first. So if Player A has a 40 foot putt while Player B has a mere 5-yard chip, the golfer on the green is still entitled to play first. Remember also that in stableford & strokeplay there is no penalty for playing out of turn, but (there’s always a but….) in a match play scenario, you could be made to replay your shot by your opponent if you don't wait your turn.
