Frances goes on Shopping Spree! On Thursday last the Maria Moloney Boutique competition concluded. Generously sponsored by Margaret O Sullivan this particular competition is always eagerly contested. This year Club PRO Frances Carroll playing off 34 was lucky enough to bring in a nice score of 41 points to secure the win. In second place we had our Competitions Secretary Phil Kelly playing off 29 with a good 40 points while the third place was filled by our Club Secretary Bridget Blackwell playing off 30 also with 40 points. It appears that being on the Ladies Committee greatly improves one’s golf! Sincere thanks to Margaret for her sponsorship and continued support over the last twenty-nine years.
