Another good performance from our junior section this week with Toby Murphy finishing tied 8th today in the Ulster Under-14 Boys Open Championship which was played in Ballycastle Golf Club today.
Well done Toby….
Four of our junior boys traveled to Mullingar this week to compete in the Leinster Boys ( U16s ).
Jamie Anderson shot 5 over on Thursday with Dylan Holmes shooting one worse at +6, both making the cut. Unfortunately William O’Riordan and Toby Murphy missed the cut (Toby by a single shot).
On Wednesday Jamie again played some solid golf and maintained his form, shooting a very creditable six over par to finish on +11 and in 23rd place overall in a strong 125 man field.
Dylan had been disappointed with his first round and dug deep on day two to shoot a level par 70, a round that was only bettered on the day by the eventual event winner, Michael Wilson from Massereene Golf Club. Dylan’s score moved him up from 25th after day one to 7th place overall.
Well done to all four Greystones players.
Well done to Shauna, Grace, Stella, Isabella and Sophie competing in the Irish Schools Junior Girls championship last week. Special congratulations to Shauna on finishing 6th. 49 girls played from other clubs in Leinster. Well done all!
The Dublin Boys and Girls event is open to book on the Grange GC site

Greystones U15 squad came out second best to a very strong Malahide U-15 team in the 2021 Leinster U15 final. Both sides place really good golf over the two 5-match legs, with Malahide proving to be the stronger side and a deserving winner. It is worth noting that none of their squad are available for next year, whereas five of our squad will be itching to have a go once again next year, and hopefully go one step further.
A big thanks must go to the following for the effort they put in, their commitment and their togetherness and support they showed for one another:
and of course to Peter Anderson and Karl Holmes for their management skills.
Roll on 2022.
This Sunday at 1pm our Under 15 squad take on Malahide in the final of the Leinster U-15 . It will be play over two weekends – with 5 matches at home on 3rd October and 5 matches away on 17th October. All support would be very much appreciated – it promises to be an exciting afternoon of great golf.
Best wishes to:
