The final monthly medal was held on an unseasonally warm morning seeing a good number of members trying to get their hands on a silver medal of glory. Fierce competition, solid play and outstanding scores were the order of the day but it's fair to say the cream rose yet again to the top. This months winner was Peter Gill. Peter has had an outstanding year on the course, a great talent and a pleasure to play with, which is the mark of a good member. Congrats Peter. Cat 1 went to Ray Foley, Cat 2 Patrick Murphy, Cat 3 Alex McCauley and 2's inevitably Peter Gill. Well done all.
The sun shone on Lough Ramor on Sunday and like bears emerging from hibernation golfers took to the tee box blinking in the sun shine. It was a stroke competition for our Vice Captain Mr. Gary Corcoran's prize and a lot of strokes were played by many. However two men played less than most and these were:
1st Sean McEvoy
2nd Finian O'Driscoll
Sunday morning saw a lot of men take to the course nursing sore heads from the 70th celebrations from the night before. However they saw the best part of the day weather wise and took advantage of it to post some very decent scores, all things considered. First on the day was Vivian Connell just pipping Liam Murphy past the post. Congrats gentlemen.
Sunday saw the monthly opportunity for members who have not recieved a medal since their Confirmation to battle it out in the Monthly medal competition. As you would expect from this time of year some people played in fantastic sunshine where others got wetter than a walk along the Wild Atlantic Way. Nonetheless as is always the case some will always rise above these obstacles to claim the medal and the glory. The honour this month went to Eddie Cooney with 56, with Cat 1 going to Stephen Smith, Cat 2 to Gerry Magee and Cat 3 to Thomas Boyle. Well done lads any handicap revisions will be posted in the clubhouse.
There were no twos winners this week so the club treasurer has slept well for another week.
Well last weekend we saw the great and good of Virginia Golf Club come out to participate in the second round of our Captain (Mr. Peter Kermaths) prize. Some came with anticipation, some with hope, some because they literally have nothing better to do on a Sunday morning, all of whom however arrived wishing our ever popular Captain the very best in this his big day and the summit of his year as club captain. The early morning men were on the majority not expecting to rattle the leaders but as we know in golf stranger things can happen, and the one thing that everyone agreed on was that the weather was magnificent and fitting for the day that was in it. The Captain welcomed everyone as they were dispatched to do battle, and his fair positioning of the flags and his thoughtful movement of the tee markers meant for most it was not the usual automatic club choices they had come to expect, thinking was the order of the day.
