Ladies Notes w/e 21st April 2019

Successful Sunshine Classic:  Despite the inclement weather at the start of the competition, the sun shone throughout the week and the large entry enjoyed some superb golf.  The scoring was great with the winning team bringing in 109 points.  The winning Ladies team with a winning total of 97 points included Mary Lou Carroll, Jo Swain, Ciara Donnelly and Eileen Flemming who plays out of Charleville Golf Club. Congratulations Ladies as this Classic was very well supported by Ladies teams. Sincere thanks to our main Sponsor Dungarvan Transport and to all the other sponsors who were so generous.
Mary Lou Carroll comes “Good” in the Indian Ocean sponsored  March 18 Hole competition.  In the first 18 hole competition of the year Mary Lou Carroll playing off 20 brought in a very good 40 points, followed by the ever consistent Eithne Ashby also playing off 20 with 38 points.  Ger Curran continues her good run of form and playing off 37 also brought in 38 points
