Great Scoring in Cleanzone Open Ladies Day: Thursday was a tough day on the golf course, but that did not deter some of the ladies who played in the generously sponsored Cleanzone Champagne Classic. Aisling Fennell from the Gold Coast and West Waterford members Aoife McGovern and Jean O Donovan teamed up to bring in a very nice score of 91 points. Not to be out done, our hardworking Lady Captain Phil Kelly joined Betty Joyce from Castlemartyr Golf Club and Sheila Fitzgerald from Youghal Golf Club to also bring in a very healthy 91 points. However on this occasion they were just denied the lovely Avoca rugs. In third place Club members Deirdre Ruane, Una Mulligan and Geraldine Hickey returned a fine score of 85 points. Many thanks to our Sponsor Cleanzone and to all those who played.
