McCarthy hottest on day of red-hot scoring

BILL McCarthy was the winner of Sunday’s Singles Stableford when he shot a superb score of 36pts to win the 14 hole competition on countback from Mark Browne (22).

On a day of red hot scoring from many of the club’s seasoned campaigners, the 28 handicapper produced a round that included a four point birdie two at the ninth, four three point pars and four three point bogeys.

McCarthy could even afford to blank the par five index three seventh, where he had two shots, and still beat Browne thanks to his 26pts over his final nine holes.

Browne finished second with George Rogers (19) in third place on 35pts. The Category Prizes went to Jim Dwyer (9), Brian Ward (15) and Sean Ward (18) while Billy Cairns (6) returned the day’s best gross score of 27pts.

Sunday, March 11 – 14 Holes Singles Stableford & Tiernan’s Centra Blackrock Winter League – Overall: Bill McCarthy (28) 36/26pts, Mark Browne (22) 36pts, George Rogers (19) 35pts.

Three competitions mark Captains’ Drive-In

Captain Gerry Byrne and Lady Captain Pat Cleary

THE Captains’ Drive-In took place on Sunday when Captain Gerry Byrne and Lady Captain Pat Cleary teed off to officially mark the start of the golfing season and their terms of office.

Watched by a large crowd of members, the two Captains were led to the first tee by piper Marc Keller and promptly hit cracking drives to get the year off to a great start.

The day was marked by three competitions which attracted large entries and saw some excellent golf played in sunshine but with the added challenge of a strong easterly wind blowing across the across.

In the Gents Team Scramble the team of Conor Byrne, Niall Sloane, Dermot McKenna and Bill McCarty came out on top with a net score of 44.1 for the 14 holes while in the Mixed Foursomes Sean and Mary Hession took the honours down the back nine while Pat and Eva Beirne came out on top on the Front Nine. Sean & Mary’s round included an eagle three at the par five 10th.
