Update 20th February

Spring League

The Spring League sponsored by PD Golf has entered the business end of proceedings with two of the four group having completed all of their group matches. Only a few games remain outstanding in groups 2 and 4 and may be played any day up until this Sunday. 

In group 1, Peggy Feely & Kevin O’Connor have secured their place in the final by winning their final match 2 up to leave them on a five match aggregate of +12, a score sufficient to top the group. Shane Loftus & Regina McLoughlin finished one behind and will possibly take one of the two best runners spots.

In the second group, Paul Connolly & Seth Meredith lead and are in a strong position to top the group. Their total score of 9 up leaves them 6 clear of 3 other pairs, one of them being Dave Purser & Claire Cryan who have a game outstanding. 

Moving to group 3, Vincent Egan & Lewis Shaw have completed a clean sweep in their group finishing with a total aggregate of +18, the highest score recorded in the competition. They are followed by Pat Conroy & Susan O’Mahoney who won 4 of their 5 games, finishing with a total score of +13.

In the final group, Michael Rush & Gerry O’Hara continue to lead on +8, followed by Paddy McLoughlin & Mandy Toolan on +5. Also, don’t rule out Willie Tiernan & Sandra McCrann who are only 3 holes further back with one game yet to be played. 


This week the weekly 9 hole re-entry competition continues and may be played any day Monday to Saturday inclusive.

Next Sunday there will be an 18 hole stableford for gents. Entry fee will be €7.
This week is also the final chance to get unplayed Spring League matches completed otherwise the non played scores will be applied.
