It was a lovely bright, dewy day, with autumn leaves all over the place. Very picturesque, but a nightmare when following a little white golf ball.... The top performers must have had some kind of radar to keep track of theirs... Tony Hannon and Liam Kelly both had a very impressive score of 42 points, with Tony winning it on the back nine.

Golfer of the Year – Dick Shaw
Portarlington was the final outing for this competition. Contenders were Micheal McGrath, Gavin Daly, Michael Murphy, Dick Shaw. I had the great privilege of playing with Dick Shaw and Pat Curley. Both played very well, lots of pars and birdies, whilst never mentioning GOTY! It was a real pleasure to see how it should be done!

Match Play Winner – Johnny Murphy
The final was a great contest between Johnny and Gavin Daly. According to Johnny, lady luck was on his side throughout this competition, but we all know it takes more than a bit of luck to consistently win. Well done to all who took part, particularly runner up, Gavin, semi finalists Simon Murphy and Jay Curley.

Next outing Sat Nov 21st Mountrath -
Timesheet in Paddy’s
