Captain’s Prize 2019 kindly presented by Mr Tom Higgins.

The date is fast approaching when our captain Tom hosts his captain’s prize over the June bank holiday weekend.  Qualifying rounds are on Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June. The lucky qualifiers will play in the final on Sunday 2nd June.  I am told that our captain has a very special presentation night planned following Sunday’s final round.  You can also expect a very special captain’s menu and one or two extra surprises from Liam and his team in the Bar and Restaurant over the weekend.  So keep an eye out for the timesheets as you will not want to miss this very special occasion in our golfing calendar. 

 

Jimmy Bruen Shield

Our Bruen team travelled to Faithlegg on Saturday where we took on neighbours Dungarvan in round 2.  With the teams level at 2 matches each it was Dungarvan who clinched a well deserved victory in the decider.  Our thanks to manager Stephen Spillane and his team who put a lot of time and effort into their preparation for the event.

 

Pierce Purcell Shield

Pierce Purcell Shield: West Waterford vs Youghal at Waterford Castle on Sunday 19th May at 1.40 pm.

 

Fred Perry Trophy

Des Cleary and his team will make the short trip to the Gold Coast where we take on the home team in yet another local derby on Monday June 20th.  Our team put in a good performance in the opening round vs Waterford Castle but we can expect a stern challenge from Gold Coast on their home patch. We always look forward to visiting the Gold Coast and who knows maybe we can upset the odds on this occasion.

 

JB Carr Trophy.

Terry O Callaghan and his team travelled to Tramore on Friday 9th May to take on the host team in the first round of the JB Carr Tournament.  Our team acquitted themselves well winning one match and taking another two matches to the 18th and 19th respectively. We eventually had to give way to Tramore on a 4-1 scoreline. Well done to Terry and his team on a very good performance and best of luck to Tramore in the next round.

 

Belvedere Trophy

With so many high handicappers showing exceptionally good form during the Winter League, our team manager Edward Hickey will be casting a serious eye over the relevant result sheets.  Our first game will be a preliminary round vs Dunmore East with the winners playing Williamstown in the first round.  Watch this space for regular updates.

Dungarvan Golf International
