Inter Club Teams Upate:
Greystones Golf Club had an excellent hard fought win over Powerscourt Golf Club in the Eamonn D’Arcy Trophy at home on Sunday 12th of January. The Final Score was 3-2 to Greystones and included impressive wins for Alan Condron in the top singles and foursomes pairings of Marcus Looby with Niall Gafney and David Byrne with Barry O’Leary. This is the teams second win from two matches in this year’s competition as they beat Elm Park Golf Club 3&1/2 to 1&1/2 on Sunday 1st of December 2019 and as can be seen top our group with 4 points from two matches. This leaves us well positioned to qualify from this group into the Semi Finals of The Eamonn D’Arcy Trophy in Dun Laoghaire Golf Club on April 5th 2020 (AM). Our next match is away in Druids Heath on Saturday 25th January 2020 with first match out at 8:40am. All support would be very much welcomed.
Sunday 19th January 2020.
On Sunday 19th of this month we are trying something a little bit different and are holding a trial/ competition for two of the teams who will represent Greystones Golf Club in the coming year, The Barton Cup, and the All Ireland Mixed. This is a new idea that is a due to the recognition that in the past some club teams have been asked to play inter club matches/ strokes qualifying without having any previous practice or competitive action in what is a very difficult format of golf, straight foursomes.
We want the day to be competitive and hence that is why we are running a 14 holes competition which will commence at 12.20. The timesheet will be posted on the BRS system and your team managers will also be in touch to confirm details. So for all those asked to play well done, the team managers & I will see you up there on Sunday for what will hopefully be an enjoyable day with a high standard of golf.
