We held our last official Junior Competion of 2023 this afternoon when 42 boys and girls played in our season-ending Junior Scramble in very unseasonal weather…….not a drop of rain fell! Some great golf played, and it is always particularly enjoyable to mix our Blues, Reds and Whites together in what are really fun events.
7Ups Competition – 6 Holes:
- Tom Lawlor, Max Mahady & Oscar Maguire
- Olivia Holmes, Ben McFadden, Freddie Gormley & Donnacha Cribben
Main Competition – 9 Holes:
- Leo Murphy, Alfie O’Reilly & James Lynn
- John O’Boyle, Jack Daly & Jack Delmar Anderson
- Ruadhán Murray, James Power & Devin Kelly
It was a great day and a fitting end to a truly wonderful Junior Golf year in GGC. It has been brilliant to watch the progress of all of our Juniors this year, in particular all of the Whites and 7Ups.
As ever, we can only host regular competitions with lots of help, so a huge thank you today to Jenny Moore, Helen Murphy (our official photographer!) and Barry Massey (teaching all of the smallies how to do the “Massey Chip”!).
Also to Jackie behind the bar and Ali and Olivia who fed everyone!
And finally, to our 2023 Junior Captains, Isabella and Jamie who again expertly called the results, ably assisted by our Junior Convenor Neil. It was Isabella and Jamie’s last official engagement of the season and they have both been a credit to the Junior Section. Sophie and Dylan have big shoes to fill next year!
Thankfully as Neil said during the prizegiving, this is not the end of the season as our Junior coaching programme continues tomorrow in the Driving Range for Reds and Whites. Please encourage your children to continue playing during the darker winter months, and we look forward to 2024 being another great year of golf for all of our Juniors.
