Cumann Gailf Chloich Cheann Fhaola celebrated their 25th Anniversary last weekend and the whole weekend’s events went as successful as hoped.
There was golf arranged for both Friday and Saturday that culminated in the anniversary event on Saturday night. The scramble on Friday evening went very well and the Ryder Cup on Saturday was very popular with over 100 golfers playing in the anniversary events.
A large crowd gathered for the anniversary on Saturday night with a number of individuals receiving awards for their contribution to the Club over 25 years. The main award was presented to founding member Micheal Murray who received a lifetime achievement award on the night ‘as do shaothar iontach don chlub ón tús 1997-2022’.
Philip McGeady (Head Greenkeeper) and Francis Boyle (former Head Greenkeeper) both received awards ‘for their outstanding service to the club’. Lady Member Chriss Cannon received an award for her contribution to the Ladies Club over 25 years.
Patsy McVicar received an award for his great contribution to the golf club. These individuals along with many others have helped the club immensely and we would like to thank everyone for the help and support over the years. Club Secretary Seán Ó Gallchóir produced an 8 page booklet on the history of the golf club with some other information that was very interesting. Extra copies are available in the clubhouse.
The 9 Hole Scramble winners on Friday 27th with a super score of -6 under par for 9 holes was Chris McCallion, Brian McGee, Stephen McCafferty and Martin Mortimer.
The Ryder Cup on Saturday was a great success and the 4Ball Better Ball results were; 1st Conor Gallagher & Michael Gallagher 46pts; 2nd John McGinley & John McDermott 45pts BOT; 3rd Chris McCallion & Darragh Geaney 45pts; Ladies: Kathleen Rodgers & Monica McDonagh 45pts.
