Junior Golf

With schools out our juniors have taken to the Glenns with gusto. Congratulations to Brian Guinan and Christy McGarry on getting the season off to an excellent start. They have laid out a fine programme for the summer and are confident that many boys and girls will avail of the opportunity to improve their skills on the course. Brian and Christy are fortunate that several sponsors have agreed to contribute and promote the game.

Winners last week were Brandon Beale and Sean Kinsella. Brandon who was playing off 29 a couple of weeks back is now down to 20 having lost 9 shots in the meantime. That was some progress. Well done.
