Dundalk win Inter-Club Husband & Wife Cup

Dundalk has won the 2016 Inter Club Husband and Wife Matchplay Competition, hosted by Co Meath Golf Club, after beating a strong Killeen Castle team 3-0 in the delayed final.

Dundalk qualified for the final last September after winning three rounds but scheduling challenges led to the final being delayed until Sunday, April 9.

The Dundalk Panel consisted of Briege and Tommy Renaghan, Mary Lou and Barry Grennan, Teresa and Nigel Giff, Mags and Mickey Coburn, Anne and Gerry Murray, Mary and Sean Hession,  Siobhan and Brendan Keane.

The Dundalk team played wonderful golf in the final and came through to win with The Renaghans winning on 16, Coburns on 15 and The Murrays on 14, with the Grennans and Giffs still on the course.

Elaine Ward and Paul O Callaghan managed the team and certainly left no stone unturned in their preparations. The team were well supported on the day by a number of members as well as the Lady Captain Maeve, ex Officio Jean, 2016 Lady President Breege and President Noel who received the trophy on behalf of Dundalk.

Thanks go to Co Meath for organising the event which is in its second year. The format is changing in 2017 when it will be a fourball format with four teams representing each club and the best three cards to count. It is due to get underway in May and Dundalk are looking forward to defending their title.
