On Sunday morning due to the weather our members experienced more water than Jacques Cousteau, nonetheless a throng of brave (some would say mad) souls challenged the elements and took to the course. The results were fantastic, again the cream rose to the top with our club low handicaps coming to the front. We saw two fantastic gross 63's from Stephen Smith and Aidan King, there will a fine battle come Captains day for gross prize! Full results as follows:
Overall: A. King
Cat1: S. Smith
Cat2: M Sherry
Cat 3: C Hogan
Presidents Prize Day 2
The sun rose on Sunday July 20th and as Sky Sports would say it was moving day for the Presidents prize field. Many teed it up, but some more than others knew they had a more realistic chance of claiming the coveted trophy. Talent is fleeting but class is permanent and with this, from the chasing group came Stephen Smith, winning his second major in a row with a sublime performance. Canice Hogan, came second with Tom Lynch in third and last years President Seamus O'Meara in Fourth spot. Best Gross went to Ray Foley and Ladies Winner was Sue Ennis.
Mr Victor Nesbitts Presidents Prize Day 1
Don't mind Scottish Opens, or US LPGA events or anything on Sky Sports there was only one golf event worthy of note this weekend and that was Victor Nesbitts Presidents Prize. All golfers teed up, the hooks, the experts, the hopeful, all levelled by the stroke format and after day one the following men lead the charge:
Hi Folks! Just a little reminder that our next Virginia Development Association meeting is Monday 13th July at 8.30pm in The Riverfront...That's next Monday! Hope to see a good turnout...
Mens Singles 4/5 July
This weekend saw a furious competition between members ahead of the upcoming Presidents Prize. Many people were out sharpening their game and getting another vital card in ahead of the first major of the year. The winner this weekend was Mr. Eric Davidson, with our beloved Captain Mr. Peter Kermath a close second. The Captains recent sojurn at the David Leadbetter academy in Florida paying dividends just at the right time in the season. Again this weekend despite the best efforts of everyone a "2" proved as elusive as a Greek debt decision, so the jackpot rolls on.
Lady Captains Prize for men
This weekend we saw a great turn out for our Lady Captain, Sara Loftus's prize for the men. The weather was great, the course was great and believe it or not the golf was great (for most!). Our golfers took to the fairways vying for the accolade of champion and as is always the case a champion emerged, this time in the form of Gerry Magee, closely followed by young Peter Gill (again carrying the Gill family golfing flag). Well done everyone, and the Mens club would like to thank our Lady Captain for the competition and wish her all the best on her upcoming big day. There were no 2's winners this week so the jackpot rolls on.
