Ladies Notes: w/e 11th Sep 2017

Ladies, we are coming to the end of a busy golfing Summer and hopefully we’ll have some beautiful Autumnal weather over the next couple of months.  We have a packed September schedule ahead.

 

The Lady members took to the fairways on Sunday last with very challenging weather conditions of wind and rain, to remember a great past member Bernie Twomey.  The most fitting member managed to pip everybody.  Well done Joan Sheehan, Bernie would be delighted.  Derry, Bernie’s husband was present to hand out the fabulous prizes and was delighted to see such a turnout.  He gave a lovely speech being the 10th Anniversary regarding the various people’s lives whom Bernie touched and her passion for art and her encouragement of golf beginners etc.
