Easter Hamper won by the Vice-Captain, Mr. Andrew Gartlan.
The Vice-Captain, Mr. Andrew Gartlan was the overall winner of the Easter Hampers competition played over Saturday and Sunday last when he was two points clear of a very large field of almost ninety players, curtailed slightly because of the frost on Sunday morning. Andrew, playing off of 15 handicap got off to a good start where he was level par for the first four holes having bogeyed the long second but he made up for this early slip by birdying the par three third. On the back nine he showed a great level of consistency where his long hitting made up for the soft underfoot conditions and he completed the back nine in four over par for his winning total of thirty-six points. Category one, for players up to nine handicap, was won by Dermot Maher off of a handicap of 1 with thirty points and Dermot is obviously back in form after his shoulder injury of last year. Category two, for players of handicaps 10 to 16, was won by TJ Lyons off of 10 handicap and category three, for players of 17 handicap and over was won by Noel Maher off of 19 handicap. The best on Saturday and Sunday was Toddy O’Brien and Ben Hearne respectively.
This was a very well supported competition and augers well for the future when the weather becomes a little bit more dependable. The Club is grateful to Dunnes Stores for their wonderful sponsorship.
