Many thanks to Paddy Gildea Butchers for sponsoring the Letterkenny Golf Club’s ladies competition on Tuesday 18th.
Conditions weren’t great and there weren’t so many hardy souls venturing forth however Anne Condon wasn’t put off by the elements and she brought home a very respectable 37 points to win the competition and lose a shot off her handicap.
Cathy Marren was second with 34 points. and Marian O Sullivan was third with 32 points.
The first Hamper was played on Sunday 24th and eighteen ladies played on a day of mixed conditions.
A bigger entry might’ve been expected but no doubt the recent blustery weather was a factor.
The course was in great condition if playing a little long but that was no bother to Triona Daly a fine hitter of the ball who triumphed on the day ensuring the Dalys will have lots of treats for Christmas by claiming the hamper with 34 points.
Marian O Sullivan was second with 33 points and Jackie Ireland was third with 32 points.
On Saturday 29th there will be an Open Competition – The Michael McGrath Memorial.
Entry is €15 for members and visitors. All proceeds will go Letterkenny Hospital Oncology Ward. Your support for this worthy cause would be welcomed.
Also on Saturday it’s the final of the Maire O’Donnell.
Captain Sandra McMonagle, in her first year of captaincy, has done a terrific job in bringing her team to the final of this event and no doubt she has her selection and strategy razor sharp again.
The team have two matches from the first leg so that’s a great start and hopefully the home advantage will be the extra club in the bag.
Tee is reserved from 12.50 so please come out and give the ladies your support.
